As I memorized this bit of Luke I was surprised by how Luke spent so little time on the crucifixion itself (on things like the nails & Jesus’ suffering) but instead recorded the reactions of those around him (the women, the leaders, the soldiers and the criminals). I love it that the focus of the story of the crucifixion is on the miscreant crucified beside Jesus. After all, wasn’t that the intent all along? We were his purpose in coming to live among us. We still are.
