~*`LEGEND OF THE DOGWOOD TREE`*~

Dogwood divider Pictures, Images and Photos

As legend has it, the cross on which Jesus was crucified was made from a dogwood tree.
 God decreed that the dogwood tree would from that day forth never grow
large enough to be used to make a cross.
 Thus, the dogwood tree is a small tree.

***+***


 The flower of the dogwood has four petals which makes the shape of a cross.
 The center of the flower resembles the crown of thorns with bright red,
clustered fruit in the center representing the blood of Christ .

 The dogwood blooms in April when Easter Sunday marks the resurrection of Christ
after the Crucifixion

He Lives ! He Lives !
Christ Jesus Lives Today !
Alleluia! Alleluia!

~*~ AMEN!~*~

=====~`+`~=====THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS CHRIST'=====~`+`~=====
*Source: Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia*
The crucifixion of Jesus occurred during the 1st century AD. Jesus, who is the Son of God as well as the Messiah, was arrested, tried, and sentenced by Pontius Pilate to be scourged, and finally crucified. Collectively referred to as the Passion, Jesus' suffering and redemptive death by crucifixion represent the central aspects of Christian theology, including the doctrines of salvation and atonement.

Jesus' crucifixion is described in all four canonical gospels, referred to in writings by Paul the Apostle, attested to by other ancient sources, and is firmly established as an historical event confirmed by non-Christian sources.[1][2][3][4][5] Christians believe Jesus' suffering was foretold in the Hebrew Bible, such as in Psalm 22, and Isaiah's songs of the suffering servant.[6] According to a Gospel Harmony, Jesus was arrested in Gethsemane following the Last Supper with the Twelve Apostles, and then stood trial before the Sanhedrin, Pontius Pilate, and Herod Antipas, before being handed over for crucifixion. After being flogged, Jesus was mocked by Roman soldiers as the "King of the Jews", clothed in a purple robe, crowned with thorns, beaten and spat on. Jesus then had to make his way to the place of his crucifixion.

Once at Golgotha, Jesus was offered wine mixed with gall to drink. Matthew's and Mark's Gospels record that he refused this. He was then crucified and hung between two convicted thieves. According to Mark's Gospel, he endured the torment of crucifixion for some six hours from the third hour, at approximately 9 am,[7] until his death at the ninth hour, corresponding to about 3 pm.[8] The soldiers affixed a sign above his head stating "Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews" in three languages, divided his garments and cast lots for his seamless robe. The Roman soldiers did not break Jesus' legs, as they did to the other two men crucified (breaking the legs hastened the crucifixion process), as Jesus was dead already. Each gospel has its own account of Jesus' last words, seven statements altogether.[9] In the Synoptic Gospels, various supernatural events accompany the crucifixion, including darkness, an earthquake, and (in Matthew) the resurrection of saints. Following Jesus' death, his body was removed from the cross by Joseph of Arimathea and buried in a rock-hewn tomb, with Nicodemus assisting. According to the Gospels, Jesus then rose from the dead two days later ("the third day").[
