Back in Time

Taking a cue from Beth at C. Beth Blog. I thought I would give a heads up as to the content of todays post. It's a very Christian based post. I hope, however, you still read.

I saw the other day that The One-Minute Writer had a very interesting prompt.

It said:

Today's Writing Prompt: Video

Most major news events in 2009 are filmed by someone (or many people.) What historical event do you wish you could watch on video?

I didn't have to think long about this one. Although I know it may sound morbid I have to say that I would like to see the video of the crucifixion of Jesus.

Why? You ask. Well, let me tell you. When people have asked me if I could go back in time and see anything this is what I always answered. Now there are a bunch of other things I would like to see too but this is my first choice.

My reasoning behind this is this: I think that (and I must speak only for myself because I don't know where anyone else stands) I would appreciate much more what was done for me, there on that cross, if I could see it first hand.

I've read the Bible and I've seen the movies that try to depict it but to see it first hand, I think, would have a much more profound impact on me. To see exactly what happened, to see exactly the suffering that He went through for me (and you) would definitely cause me to think more about the things I do. I think I would also probably not complain very much. What I go through is NOTHING compared to what He went through.

Forgive me... I'm a bit behind following up on my comments at Casa Hice. I appreciate you stopping by so much and leaving your thoughts with me. It means the world!

Wonderful post!! I couldn't agree with you more! The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ would be the hardest and most meaningful event any of us could ever witness - whether we realize it or not. And it's not morbid. It's powerful, awful, amazing, selfless, precious, and life changing.
