“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” – Astronaut Neil Armstrong’s first words from the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969. “Forgive them father for they know not what they do” – Savior Jesus Christ’s last words from the cross on Nisan 14, [27-36] AD
Both of these statements are hard to forget because they were so powerful. However, the one originally spoken over 2000 years ago transcends time, geography and is known in even the most remote parts of the earth. Remember these words first spoken by Jesus and revitalize your faith this Good Friday by thanking God for this most powerful sacrifice of all.
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
