The Crucifixion Of Jesus Christ by Jesse Hendley

Jesse M. Hendley
Luke 23:32-48

Let us turn to a passage of Scripture that has helped
untold thousands of people to see the basis of their
salvation. Luke 23:32-48. "And there were also two
others, malefactors, led with Him to be put to death.
And when they were come to the place, which is called
The Skull, there they crucified Him, and the
malefactors, one on the right hand and the other on
the left. Then Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for
they know not what they do. And parting His garments
among them, they cast lots. And the people stood
beholding. And the rulers also with them scoffed at
Him saying, He saved others; let Him save himself, if
this is the Christ of God, His Chosen. And the
soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him offering Him
vinegar and saying, "If Thou art the King of the Jews,
save Thyself. And there was also a superscription over
Him, This is the King of the Jews. And one of the
malefactors that were hanged railed on Him, saying,
Art not Thou the Christ? Save Thyself and us. But the
other answered, rebuking him, saying; Dost thou not

the land until the ninth hour. And the sun was
darkened and the veil of the temple was rent in the
midst. And Jesus cried with a loud voice, Father, into
Thy Hands I commend my spirit. And having said thus,
He gave up the ghost. When the centurion saw what was
done, he glorified God saying; certainly this was a
righteous man. And all the multitudes that came
together to this sight returned, smiting their

This is the tremendous drama of the Cross. I want to
call your attention to those three crosses. On the
central cross hangs the Son of God, dying for the sins
of the whole world, dying for every individual man
that this world will ever know. To crucify Him, they
took Him to a place called "The Skull." Jesus cried,
"Father, forgive them, for they know not what they

You know, Jesus one time said, "Father, I know Thee,
that Thou always hearest My prayer." God never turned
down a prayer of the Son of God. He didn't turn this
one down. When Jesus said, "Father, forgive them," He
was praying for His murderers. He was praying for
those who spat on Him; for those who thrust the spear
into His side; for those who drove the spikes through
His quivering flesh; for everyone that had to do with
His Death. That touches your heart. That touches
anybody's heart. Praying for His murderers. There is
nothing more precious to man than LIFE. Jesus laid
down His life praying for His enemies. I tell yo ...
