For our Lent series we are learning about the words Jesus spoke from the cross.
The Roman speaker/writer Cicero wrote, "Crucifixion is the most cruel and horrifying punishment." As Jesus was experiencing potentially the most painful, shameful, humiliating punishment one could ever experience (for crimes He did not commit!), some of His first words were, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."
Are you kidding me!?!? Who but Jesus would ever show that kind of love and mercy?
So...who is "them"? Listen in as we study one of the most powerful images in all the Bible (If not of all time).
