"...He bore the sins of many..."

Easter week...reminds me of new shoes always, even if the dress was not new. I remember an Easter that had a lot of snow and a winter coat over the Easter dress. John's Mother always went to a local cemetery that had a sunrise service.

I have told about being on top of Mt Sinai for sunrise--never to be forgotten moment! When we were in Jerusalem, and the Holy Land, we were in the Mount of Olives, and went to Golgotha (supposedly the location of Jesus' crucifixion. The high hill certainly looked like Golgotha because the front of the hill/mountain had the looks of a skull.
We saw the tomb where Jesus was lain and the rock that would have been pulled across the entry to seal it. Even if this is not the exact spot, it is close in resemblance and would let one see how it would have been.

Isaiah 53:12 "...because He poured our His life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For He bore the sins of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."
