"There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved." ~ Charles Morgan
|Luke 23:13-24, 33-35, 44-46|
But they cried out all together, saying, "Away with this man..."
They kept on calling out, saying, "Crucify, crucify Him!"
And he said to them the third time, "Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death..."
But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail.
...there they crucified Him...But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." ...And the people stood by, looking on...
It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour,
because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit."
Having said this, He breathed His last.
