||Crucifixion - GNT|
(Good News Translation)
|Luke 23||33||When 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.
|34||Jesus said, "Forgive them, Father!|
They don't know what they are doing."
They divided His clothes among themselves by throwing dice.
|35||The 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 27||42b||Isn't He the King of Israel?|
If He will come down off the cross now, we will believe in Him!
|Luke 23||36||The soldiers also made fun of Him:|
they came up to Him and offered Him cheap wine,
|37||and said, "Save Yourself if you are the King of the Jews!"|
|39||One of the criminals hanging there hurled insults at him:|
"Aren't you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!"
|40||The other one, however, rebuked him, saying,|
"Don't you fear God? You received the same sentence he did.
|41||Ours, however, is only right,|
because we are getting what we deserve for what we did;
but He has done no wrong."
|42||And he said to Jesus,|
"Remember me, Jesus, when You come as King!"
|43||Jesus said to him,|
"I promise you that today you will be in Paradise with Me."
|44||It was about twelve o'clock when the sun stopped shining|
and darkness covered the whole country until three o'clock;
|45||and the curtain hanging in the Temple was torn in two.|
|46||Jesus cried out in a loud voice,|
"Father! In Your hands I place My Spirit!"
He said this and died.
