Last Words of Jesus: “Father Forgive…”

A person’s final words are often a glimpse deep into the heart. For example, as Jesus hung on the cross, preparing to die, people insulted him. The Scripture says, “When they hurled their insults at Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered He made no threats (1 Peter 2:23 NIV).” Instead, Jesus asked his Father to forgive his persecutors.
