Luke 23:34

by Rev Joel Yong

Luke 23:34 records this: ‘Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided His clothes and cast lots.”

He was stripped and then crucified on a cross, and while he hung there, dying – his persecutors gambled for his clothes. Truly, if only they knew whom they were killing – they would not react this way. They were blinded by what their limited vision could perceive. No wonder the Bible teaches us to walk by faith and not by sight.
