And as they led him away, they seized one Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it behind Jesus. And there followed him a great multitude of the people and of women who were mourning and lamenting for him. (Luke 23:26,27 ESV)
Two others, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” And they cast lots to divide his garments. (Luke 23:32-34 ESV)
The Death of Jesus
It was now about the sixth hour (noon), and there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour (3:00pm), while the sun’s light failed. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Now when the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God, saying, “Certainly this man was innocent!” (Luke 23: 44-47 ESV)
We were pleased to welcome Chris Axleby & Steve Wilds from Good News for Everyone to our morning service yesterday.
Chris not only talked about the work of GNoE (formerly The Gideons) but also shared testimonies from people whose lives had changed after either being given or coming across the New Testament & Psalms that they give out.
If you would like to know more about their work please use this link to take a look at their website – www.goodnewsuk.com.
