The Three Crosses

28 May 2019  
Share |

‘On the Friday of the Passover week Pilate delivered Jesus to be crucified. According to the custom of those days, four soldiers, under the command of a centurion, were in charge of a crucifixion. At nine o’clock in the morning they reached Calvary. There Jesus was nailed to His cross. Two malefactors were crucified with Him. The cross of Jesus was placed between those of the two thieves. Thus three crosses were erected at Calvary. At the centre cross we witness the most important wonder ever revealed: the eternal love of God for sinners. The love of God nowhere shines brighter than at the cross of Christ. The other two crosses also teach instructive messages. From the penitent thief we may learn valuable lessons on repentance, from the other thief, the grave danger of final impenitence.’
