Read These Words Slowly and Thoughtfully

We run over the words of the crucifixion quickly, and sometimes thoughtlessly, but trying reading the following words of Luke slowly and thoughtfully, “There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left” (Luke 23:32-33).
Did you catch that? Did you hear what Luke said? Did you see what happened those many years ago?
See Jesus with two criminals as Roman soldiers lead them to the place of execution.
See the soldiers nail all three men to crosses.
See Jesus in the middle of the two criminals.
Luke said much by saying little. Think on his words today.
