In his gospel, Luke records three of Jesus’ sayings from the cross. By focusing on the people around the cross and these sayings of Jesus, Luke teaches us about the heart of God and his love for us.
A plea for forgiveness – “Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”
A promise of paradise – “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
A prayer of surrender – “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”
