Crucifixion - GNT
(Good News Translation)
Luke 2333When they came to the place called "The Skull,"
they crucified Jesus there, and the two criminals,
one on His right and the other on His left.
34Jesus said, "Forgive them, Father!
They don't know what they are doing."
They divided His clothes among themselves by throwing dice.
35The people stood there watching
while the Jewish leaders made fun of Him:
"He saved others; let Him save Himself
if He is the Messiah whom God has chosen!"
Matthew 2742bIsn't He the King of Israel?
If He will come down off the cross now, we will believe in Him!
Luke 2336The soldiers also made fun of Him:
they came up to Him and offered Him cheap wine,
37and said, "Save Yourself if you are the King of the Jews!"
39One of the criminals hanging there hurled insults at him:
"Aren't you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!"
40The other one, however, rebuked him, saying,
"Don't you fear God? You received the same sentence he did.
41Ours, however, is only right,
because we are getting what we deserve for what we did;
but He has done no wrong."
42And he said to Jesus,
"Remember me, Jesus, when You come as King!"
43Jesus said to him,
"I promise you that today you will be in Paradise with Me."
44It was about twelve o'clock when the sun stopped shining
and darkness covered the whole country until three o'clock;
45and the curtain hanging in the Temple was torn in two.
46Jesus cried out in a loud voice,
"Father! In Your hands I place My Spirit!"
He said this and died.
