In Which Neitzche Was Right for Three Days

33When they came to the place called The Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.

34But Jesus was saying, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

35And the people stood by, looking on. And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One.”

36The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine,

37and saying, “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!”

38Now there was also an inscription above Him, “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.”

39One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!”

40But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?

41“And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.”

42And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!”

43And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

44It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour,

45because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two.

46And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT.” Having said this, He breathed His last.
