why he was taken down

Deuteronomy 21:22-23

Deuteronomy 21:22 “If anyone is found guilty of a mistake deserving the death penalty and is executed, and you hang his body on a tree,
Deuteronomy 21:23 you are not to leave his corpse on the tree overnight but are to bury him that day, for anyone hung on a tree is under God’s affliction. You must not defile the land Yahveh your God is giving you as an inheritance.

why he was taken down

The Romans had no such rule. That is why Jesus’ body had to be quickly removed from the cross and placed in a borrowed tomb. After his sacrificial death, everything necessary to purchase our redemption had been accomplished. Christ was no longer under God’s affliction curse. He was raised triumphant from the grave, forever blessed and the means of our blessing.

Thank you Lord, for taking the curse of death upon yourself in order to rescue us.
