    Does anyone have a chronology of the passion, or harmonization of the gospel accounts with a chronology ? ? ?

    I do not want a parallel of the gospel accounts, but more of an amalgam where you can read the entire event as one story, but from the four gospels.

    Here is an outline I put together from the Four Gospel accounts for a message I preached a few years ago, going chronilogically from the Upper Room (Passover) to the Upper Room (Post-Resurrection)!

    [b:55e3810a2d]Behold the Joy[/b:55e3810a2d]

    Therefore we also, seeing we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, [i:55e3810a2d]who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the Throne of God[/i:55e3810a2d].

    This looks very helpful Pastorway. I would like anything else anyone might have.

    Has anyone read the book, "The Day Christ Died" by Bishop ? ?

    After seeing the movie I read all four accounts again. I have a few questions.

    1. Was Christ scourged back and front ? ?

    2. How many lashes was he scourged ? ?

    3. Why do the different accounts of Peter's denial imply sometimes he was questioned by servant women and other times men ? ?

    4. How could Christ see Peter on the last denial if Peter was outside according to one account ?

    I am sure the answers are easy but I seem to be missing something.

    I have not.

    1. Was Christ scourged back and front ? ?[/quote:7908fdeb81]

    The Bible does not say. History and Tradition says that the Cat-of-Nine-Tails was used to whip around the body, lodging in the chest and abdomen and then ripped around across the back, literally peeling off strips of flesh.

    [quote:7908fdeb81]2. How many lashes was he scourged ? ?[/quote:7908fdeb81]

    Again, the Bible does not say. Punishment would range from 10 lashes to 39. It was believed that 40 would kill a man. Paul received 39 but I doubt it was a Cat-of-Nine-Tails.

    [quote:7908fdeb81]3. Why do the different accounts of Peter's denial imply sometimes he was questioned by servant women and other times men ? ?[/quote:7908fdeb81]

    All 4 gospels mention a girl - Matt 26:69; Mark 14:66; Luke 22:56; John 18:17. So it was this servant girl and others agathered in the courtyard that questioned him as he answered each time with a denial.

    [quote:7908fdeb81]4. How could Christ see Peter on the last denial if Peter was outside according to one account ?[/quote:7908fdeb81]

    Luke 22:61 - this was probably in a courtyard area, or there were windows. The crowd could see the proceedings at any rate and Jesus looked at Peter.

    [quote:7908fdeb81]I am sure the answers are easy but I seem to be missing something.

    Thanks Phillip, that makes sense.

    The movie did not show anyone ripping out his beard, and he was not crucified naked. So really the humiliation and suffering of Christ was far worse than what Mel depicted, and what it did portray I could hardly take.

    I do not think anyone can really comprehend the fulness of what He went through.

    While googling info I found a book called "The Life Of Christ In Stereo", it seems like what I am looking for. Is anyone familiar with it ? ?

    As I recall, Mel Gibson was asked about the loin cloth. It was a compromise to "current" sensibilities. A naked Christ would probably have resulted in a NC-17 rating.
