Dear Readers, Today I am busy taking care of *this person*, who is recovering from surgery. Therefore, I will keep this post short.
Luke 23:33 When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him . . .
Over the last few weeks, we’ve spent a lot of time with Jesus at the cross. There’s a lot to cover, and we’ll be there for a little while longer. Yet, I’ve noticed that the people who were there, who actually wrote a first person experience, actually kept it short and to the point. Luke’s words are a perfect example. There they crucified him.
There – at a place called The Skull, which represents evil.
They – people just like you and me.
Crucified – killed in the most hideous, shameful death that existed.
Him. Him. The innocent, perfect, all-loving, all-forgiving, all-merciful Son of the Almighty God.
There they crucified him.
Thank You, Jesus, for taking my place.
