When they arrived at the place called Skull Hill, they crucified Him with one criminal on His right and the other on His left.
Jesus prayed, Father, please forgive them; they do not know what they are doing."
The soldiers divided up Jesus' clothes and threw dice for them. The people stood there staring at Jesus, and the ringleaders made faces, taunting and saying, "Jesus saved others. Let's see if He can save Himself! Sure, He's the Messiah of God. Sure, He's the chosen."
The soldiers mocked Him. They gave Him sour wine and said, "So You're the King of the Jews! Save Yourself!"
There was a sign over Him that read, "THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS."
One of the criminals mocked Him saying, "Are you not the Anointed One? Save Yourself and us."
The other rebuked him saying, "Do you not fear God, for you will be condemned. We are suffering because we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong."
Then he said, "Jesus remember men when you enter your kingdom."
He said, "Don't worry, I will. Today, you will join me in paradise."
REST because it is "Saturday in the Tomb" day since last Holy Saturday before Easter was anything but restful, I have cleared my calendar to rest and reflect. Thank You, Jesus for meeting me in the very early hours of Saturday morning with a reminder of paradise in Your kingdom!
