This is a 23 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – The Easter Story – Who Were the People at the Cross? Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
Much has been made about the people who abandoned Jesus during His final days on earth, especially his closest followers, the remaining 11 chosen disciples. Only John was there. The Bible does not explain why the disciples were not there. We can only assume they were afraid for their lives or had blended into the big crowd of onlookers.
But at the crucifixion, the Bible records only a few close friends there to support Jesus and does not name several others who were assumed to be present but not confirmed as present. Both groups are named in the body of the presentation. Luke, declares the presence of great multitudes of people.
Standing back and gazing out upon that mixed multitude, we notice the women, the soldiers, the malefactors, the centurion, the chief priests, the members of the Sanhedrin, the group of His own disciples, and in addition to these, the vast multitudes of people from the whole surrounding country.
All sorts and conditions of men are gathered to the Cross, representative crowds, the whole scene being a picture and a prophecy of how, through all the centuries, every sort and condition would be gathered to the uplifted Cross of the Son of man.
