Here in chapter 23 we find Jesus trial before Pilate. Then the crucifixion, which is describe by Dr. Luke. Jesus said," Father, forgive them , for they don't know what they are doing."( 23:34). Then he saves one on the other cross," I assure you today you will be with me in paradise."(23:43)
Then His last words on the cross," Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands."(23:46)
Then we see when the Roman officer overseeing the execution saw what happen, he worshiped God and said," Surely this man was righteous." This pagan was converted there at the foot of the cross. Everyone must come to the cross one day.
