Died He for Me
A Physician's View of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
Mark A. Marinella, MD, FACP
Nordskog Publishing Inc
The incarnate Jesus purposed more than 2000 years ago to fulfill His role on earth and voluntarily submit to suffer, die, and take upon Himself the sins of the entire world. This was the Passion of Jesus Christ. Jesus was mocked and ridiculed, spat upon, beaten with fists and whips, His back ripped to ribbons, His brow bruised and bloody from the crown of thorns pressed into His flesh, nailed to a cross and condemned to a most brutal and agonizing death, physically and spiritually. All for us. And He is alive today and forevermore.
As the author states at the conclusion of Chapter 6, “Jesus felt upon His shoulders the weight of all the sin of fallen mankind and the wrath of His Holy Father.” It is impossible to separate the Doctrine of Redemption from the Savior’s Passion week of torture and death.
Dr. Marinella is a perfect candidate to author this book. Having completed his Bachelor of Science at Mount Union College in Alliance, Ohio, he proceeded to Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio. He trained in internal medicine at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is currently practicing medical oncology in Dayton, Ohio. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Physicians (F.A.C.P.).
Between his internal medicine training and beginning his study of oncology, Dr. Marinella spent more than ten years as a “hospitalist” (hospital-based general internist). He went on to master human physiology while caring for thousands of patients and teaching medical students and internal-medicine residents on a daily basis. During this time, he was an active member of his local church.
