“Jesus said, “Father, forgive them. They don’t know what they are doing.” The soldiers threw dice to divide Jesus’ clothes between them.”
Luke 23:34 ERV
Jesus said the people didn’t know what they were doing, I said the crowd may have not known but the church people knew, they even wrote it out for the world to see.
“They put a sign above his head with the charge against him written on it: “ THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS.””
Matthew 27:37 ERV
They knew who he was, but they didn’t realize the implication of their actions; they forgot the power of Yahweh. God sent his only begotten son to save the world 🌎 and their actions ushered in the saving grace and mercy of a risen savior.
I often thank God for the actions of the ignorant because he had to die to be resurrected, and I’m glad about what that means for me and for you. Because Jesus got up, I can. When my circumstances look dire I remember that Jesus survived the cross so that I could survive the world and anything it threw at me. When I feel sick in my body I am reminded that he was bruised for me and by his stripes I am healed. When I feel as if I’m in a dark and lonely place I remember that the stone will roll away and I will see the marvelous light. Hallelujah
So yeah I guess they didn’t know what they were doing. I’ve been corrected 🙏🏽
