“In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.”
Can you imagine; betrayal, beatings, false accusations, mocking, flogging, crucifying and insulting.
There was no rest for him. He had endured 12 hours of the most grotesque and unmerciful treatment as anyone, ever in the history of the world. And as he lay there, taking insult after insult, blow after blow, all the while he remained silent. Imagine him nailed to that cross just being pelted with insults and mocking even by the two men who were being crucified with him. He endured until he finally had nothing left and broke and called out to God.
Why has God forsaken him?
He did it for me. He did it for you.
