The Greatest Event in History

100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #30 | with Daniel Whyte III 

TEXT -- Luke 23:26-33: "And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left." 

This passage of Scripture from the book of Luke describes the most important event in history -- the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This entire event can be summed up in one phrase from this passage. That phrase is found in verse 33 -- "there they crucified him." I want to focus on those four little words today and share with you what happened during the most important event in history.
