    Hello Josephine. All we have on John's exile is what we read in Revelation 1:9: "I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ."

    So, it seems that for his strong Christian witness & preaching that he suffered exile. According to the Church historian, Eusebius, John was pastoring the Church at Ephesus. During the reign of Roman Emperor Domitian (AD 81-96), Christians were heavily persecuted & the Apostle John was banished to Patmos to live out his life there & die. It was noted that undesirables in the Roman Empire were often sent to Patmos to work the mines. John remained here for eighteen months, after which the next emperor, Nerva, released all exiles. Tradition holds that John then returned to the believers at Ephesus, but died soon afterwards at the turn of the century.

    why was John exiled to the isle of Patmos?

    Hello Carl.

    One evangelist gives some details that the other doesn't. So it seems in the beginning they both mocked Jesus. But as time passed by, one of them was moved by Jesus' behavior on the cross and changed his mind. God's provision allowed for four gospels to be written, so that one complements the others and we have the full story..GBU

    I appreciate your response as well, but if you read both passages they differ in statements.

    1 passage says both mocked or ridiculed him the other states only 1 mocked him.

    With that being said read again for your self.

    Now pertaining to my Salvation, It is the Blood of JESUS that has washed away all my sin.I acknowledge

    that JESUS CHRIST is LORD, (GOD IN THE FLESH) and I have been Baptized(Full immersion).

    Luke Chapter 23

    40 But the other (prisoner) answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?

    41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.

    42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.

    43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    It's never too late to be received by Jesus: death bed, battlefield or other perils. Call upon Him TODAY while He may be found.

    All of heaven stands still when someone prays In The Name of Jesus. (per my grandmother)

    May God welcome you. Read the Book of John 3

    Thank you for for your explanation but there is more to it than that.

    Two versions two witnesses only say what they heard one heard one thing other hear something else . Only say what they hear that's why some differences in Gospels . You are witness in court must tell truth and only say what you hear and see . You see one thing someone else see something bit different from different angle . Matthew Mark Luke and John just four of many witness only say what they saw and heard . One thing happen four people see and hear from different angles .

    Mark 15:32 and Luke 3:29-43

    Theses two scriptures seem to be pointing out a different picture. One verse states

    both of the two crucified with CHRIST reviled him.

    The other verse states one mocked him and the other called HIM LORD.

    Somebody please explain

    Dear Les,

    Our members of congress are elected into office and do not play any priestly role in our society. The chief priests were appointed within the Sanhedrin (which is not Mosaic in origin-rather came about from the babylonian exile which also brought about the synagogues and rabbinic order). These chief priests were of the particular lineage of Levi through Aaron, who, only, could be priests from the tribe of Levi. The priests served in when they came of age in some capacity with the temple worship and ceremonies. The High priests or Chief priests were priests who were elevated to a position of authority and rank above the other priests. So, in these respects the chief priests were not like our members of Congress.

    But, it is believed that there was much corruption among the Chief priests of Jesus' day. They also held political power (in a religious sense) in some way. So in this respect, they are similar to our members of Congress.
  • Les Hathaway - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    Gigi I was just trying to see if there was a similarity with the Chief Priests and our members of congress. It sounds very similar to what is going on today. Thank you.

    Hello, Les, nice to meet you today.

    I just finished reading about the chief priesthood concerning your questions on the Got Questions site. I recommend going to that site to find answers to your questions. I googled Chief priesthood in Judaism and clicked on the site for Got Questions.
  • T. Levis - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    There was 1st a Priesthood in: Genesis 14:18,

    Another priesthood established after 400+ yrs of captivity of Israel in Egypt. Established in Exodus 28:1, described & defined & detailed in; Exodus 28, Ex. 29, Ex. 30, Ex. 31, Ex. 35, Ex. 38, Ex. 39, Ex. 40, Leviticus 1, note the Name, Aaron being in the Levi lineage= Exodus 2:1, Numbers 26:59, if you want to study the laws of the Priesthood all the chapters of Leviticus, I recommend.

    Numbers 3:1-45, clarified who was allowed to be in the Priesthood. Note: Numbers 3:32, Numbers 4, breaks down duties of each family, within that tribe, separated by GOD specifically, Numbers 3:12-13, Numbers 3:41, Deuteronomy also describe the duties. This continued through the book of Joshua. King David & king Solomon, re-established the Levitical Priests; 1Chronicles 6:10, then again at the return of the Babylonian captivity re-established by Ezra, Nehemiah, Haggai, & all Israel that returned.

    Therefore by these recorded accounts it appears the priesthood that existed during the moment your referring to in Mark 15, were traditional heirs of the priesthood as established, in Exodus. Respected & upheld by Jesus himself= Matthew 8:4, Mark 1:44, Luke 5:14,

    Please read Isaiah 53, Zechariah 13:6, John 18:35,

    Interestingly in: Luke 1:5, Luke 2, Hebrews 5, Hebrews 6, Jesus Our High Priest.

    They swayed Pilate, Matthew 27:24, Mark 15:15, Luke 23:4-23, John 19:8-15, yet GOD ordained it & Christ allowed it, John 10:17,

    I find it useful to read & study many Books of the Bible to answer my questions within one part of another Book.

    Hopefully these are helpful & fully answer your questions
  • MARK 15 - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    The Jewish leadership has been trying to destroy Jesus since early in His ministry ( Mark 3:22-30). At least twice, they have been prepared to stone Him ( John 8:59; 10:31). They don't want to execute Jesus during the Passover and week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread ( Mark 14:1-2); Jesus has too many supporters who may cause a riot ( Mark 11:1-10; 14:1-2). But since they have Him, it is much better if He is executed quickly.

    The Sanhedrin has a lot working against them. If they imprison Jesus, His followers could rile up the travelers from Galilee, Judea, and the surrounding area who at least think He is a prophet, if not the Messiah. Because of Jesus' popularity, the number of Galileans in Jerusalem, and the fact that the Jewish council cannot execute someone, they need the Romans to kill Jesus. Were Jesus less-renowned and less-connected to conflict with religious leaders, they likely would have been content to let a mob break Roman law by stoning ( Acts 7:54-60). Roman officials hold their trials in the early morning; if the Sanhedrin waits until later in the day, Pilate will not be available. At evening the Sabbath begins, so they need to move fast.

    This verse does not describe a second trial before the Sanhedrin. The trial in Mark 14:53-65 happens concurrently with Peter's denials in Mark 14:66-72. "Held a consultation" means the evidence-gathering is over and the council members are making their final decision. They have already convicted Jesus of blasphemy according to the Mosaic law ( Mark 14:63-65). Likely this discussion is to decide on what capital offence against Roman law they will present before Pilate.

    John, adds more detail ( John 18:28-32). When the members of the Sanhedrin take Jesus to Pilate's house, they do not enter. As residents of Jerusalem, they eat the Passover that afternoon, and will become unclean if they enter the home of a Gentile. After Pilate interviews and flogs Jesus, the Sanhedrin makes their case again.
  • Les Hathaway on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    In Mark, Chapter 15, Verse 1, a group known as the Chief Priests were mentioned. I would like to know, what group of people made up the group known as the Chief Priests? Who were they . where did they come from, how did they wield so much power as to sway Pilate?

    Thank you.

    Although the main focus is on Jesus and two crucified criminals it does not rule out the probability of other crucifixions being carried out in the same place at the same time.
  • Derek - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    You: "there is no spiritual death, Spirit CANNOT DIE"

    God: "...and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Rev 21:8
  • Jesse - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    If I might add something about the first and second resurrections, the first resurrection is for those who are saved. This resurrection takes place when Christ comes for His church. The dead (in Christ) will rise first (resurrected), and then we (believers) which are alive and remain with be caught up to meet the Lord in the air.

    The second resurrection takes place after the 1,000 reign of Christ. That resurrection will be for all those who rejected Christ. There will be no hope of salvation for those in the second resurrection ( Revelation 20:5-6).

    There are two deaths. There's physical death, and there's spiritual death. There's an old saying that says that a believer is somebody who has been born twice but dies once. You're physically born, and you're spiritually born. And when you physically die, that will be the only death you will experience because you'll be with Christ forever.

    The non-believer is somebody who is born once, but dies twice. They die in death here, and then they are resurrected and put in the lake of fire for the second death. The second death is eternal separation from Christ in the lake of fire.
  • Jesse - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago

    Mark 15:32 says that these two thieves were insulting Him. That is true. But we know from the other accounts that one of these thieves afterward turned and received Christ as Messiah. Jesus said today you shall be with me in Paradise. Until a person takes their last breath, they still have the opportunity to confess who Christ is and receive Him. This is exactly what one of them did.
  • ELB - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago

    We are the two thieves on the cross.

    One saved in the first resurrection.

    The other to be saved in the second resurrection.

    It's the work of that death on the cross, that CAUSES this reviling to TURN into confession unto salvation.

    Today you shall be with me in paradise (the presence of God).

    Colossians 1:27 ....this mystery .....CHRIST IN YOU ......

    God Bless YOU!
  • Susan on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    One of those moments when you read and the KJV and you see something that startles you. BOTH individuals being crucified with Jesus reviled him; meaning the one that was saved, right before he was saved, actually called Jesus out in a derogatory manner? Mark 15:32. Am I missing something? All along I thought it was only the thief on the left?

  • Palingal1 on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    I love, verse 39. Even, when, I started to read the KJV, I knew, this Centurian became a Christian, because, God is in capital letters. And what makes this verse great, is the fact, that this Centurian could have been the one who reviled Jesus the most, and Jesus, thought upon him, while he was on the cross! I believe, we will see that Centurian in Heaven
  • David - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    Hi Richard Times haven't changed much Look at Mathew 15:1-9 when men take Gods word and package

    it the way they want or think then they say do or practice this or that to get closer to God, that is taking what God said

    originally and making it of no effect! Religion is looking righteous, christianity is walking by the righteousness of

    God in Christ Jesus. Religion clean on outside Christianity clean by His Gods Spirit inside!
  • Richard gunther - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    Thanks for pointing this out. I said yes! So many traditions ignore what the bible actually says.
  • Rick - In Reply on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    Hi Joe You are correct when you follow the time line by the time between the soldiers beating him and sending him to Golgotha he was so pulverised he could not carry the crucifix, they compelled or made simon of cyrene to carry drag it. The cross he Jesus Christ bore was our iniquities and sins. Again mans tradition changes Gods Word. This man was so beaten you did not want to look at Him and he still did not break fellowship, think about that during a bad day.
  • Joe on Mark 15 - 2 years ago
    Why is Jesus most often deemed to stuggle with his own cross when vs 21 says that "Simon the Cyrenian ... to bear his cross"?

    Is there some other place in the bible saying Jesus struggled with his cross?
  • Earl Bowman - In Reply on Mark 15 - 3 years ago
    Brother Melvin, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Jesus said: Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it again. He was speaking of his body.

    If we are IN CHRIST then we are in the temple of God.

    John declared this:

    Revelation 15:8 And the temple (CHRIST) was filled with the smoke of THE GLORY OF GOD, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the TEMPLE (into Christ), till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.

    The seven plagues of Revelation was poured out on Christ instead of us, WE deserved that punishment. All of mankinds judgement was ON CHRIST as he cried out to God.
  • Jesse - In Reply on Mark 15 - 3 years ago

    When Jesus died on the cross, it wasn't just symbolism. It wasn't just the physical pain. He literally experienced the punishment for our sins, what it would be like to spend eternity separate from God. And it is Jesus crying out like everybody's going to be if they reject Christ. God, where are you? I'm in this darkness, in this pain. Jesus literally experienced our punishment.
  • David on Mark 15 - 3 years ago
    Imagine the look of shock that all those who committed these evil acts to our Lord God Jesus Christ, and finally killing Jesus on the cross, then realizing at their own death they made a mistake. A grave mistake that cost them eternity from Christ. May we campaign hard and reach as many as we can before they go into eternity because of their lost condition.

    To have been present at the time of healings and performing of the feeding of the multitudes (2X), bringing people dead back to life; and still not believe. To have heard the words of grace from Christ Himself, praise the Lord.

    I deem not to judge, but thankful that I heeded the prompting of the Holy Spirit in my heart and trusted in the Lord for my salvation. I praise the Lord as well for everyone else who trusts in the Lord for their salvation.

    God the Lord Jesus Christ deserves all the praise and glory, on one else. Thank Lord. Come quickly Lord.
