This week the blog will focus on six hours one Friday–that fateful Friday when Jesus hung on a cross, suspended between heaven and earth, between God and us, dying for our sins. In those hours, Jesus made seven statements. We all lean in to hear what someone has to say in their dying hours. Thankfully, the gospel writers recorded Jesus’ last words.
Father forgive them because they don’t know what they are doing.
Ben Poteat and David Grindstaff wrote a song that says this better than I could.
