The Seven Last Words of Jesus, Friday, Jerusalem, Circa 33 AD

“Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”  Luke 23:34

Here it is.  Nailed to and hanging from a cross.   The Roman soldiers have cast lots for his clothing.  The crowd has hurled a never ending stream of insults at him.  He is mocked.

But Jesus knew that His fate was the will of God – his Father. His crucifixion was a pivotal element of God’s plan for humanity.

Jesus knew in his heart that we are blind, stupid, pitiable creatures. So He prayed for the mockers and his persecutors, crying out even from the cross for mercy for all.
