Luke   23: 35-47

23:35 And people were standing near, watching. And the leaders among them derided him, saying: “He saved others. Let him save himself, if this one is the Christ, the elect of God.” 23:36 And the soldiers also ridiculed him, approaching him and offering him vinegar, 23:37 and saying, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.” 23:38 Now there was also an inscription written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 23:39 And one of those robbers who were hanging blasphemed him, saying, “If you are the Christ, save yourself and us.” 23:40 But the other responded by rebuking him, saying: “Do you have no fear of God, since you are under the same condemnation? 23:41 And indeed, it is just for us. For we are receiving what our deeds deserve. But truly, this one has done nothing wrong.” 23:42 And he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” 23:43 And Jesus said to him, “Amen I say to you, this day you shall be with me in Paradise.” 23:44 Now it was nearly the sixth hour, and a darkness occurred over the entire earth, until the ninth hour. 23:45 And the sun was obscured. And the veil of the temple was torn down the middle. 23:46 And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said: “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” And upon saying this, he expired. 23:47 Now, the centurion, seeing what had happened, glorified God, saying, “Truly, this man was the Just One.”
