A victory of forgiveness

Part 1 of 7 "7 Words from the cross" in the Spring 2016 VISION Newsletter

Luke 23:34 - Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.

A victory of forgiveness over injustice.

  • Despite the incredible injustice, His first words are of forgiveness.
  • They fulfill Isaiah’s prophesy: He made intercession for the transgressor (Isaiah 53:12).
  • They satisfy His own teachings: But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you (Matthew 5:44).
  • He wishes forgiveness even for those who show no remorse or repentance. Jesus wants them to be free of their guilt when they realize what they have done. That is the result of forgiveness, freedom from guilt.
