Luke 23:26-43 (NIV)

The Crucifixion of Jesus

26 As the soldiers led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27 A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him. 28 Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the childless women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then

“‘they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!”
    and to the hills, “Cover us!”’[a]

31 For if people do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”

32 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34 Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[b] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

35 The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”


There was a Black Friday Long a Go that Starteds with a Long Line of people following to see what was going on... Waiting to see what was going to take place. On this day a man named Jesus carried a Cross to a place where He would be crucified..

With Thanksgiving just passed by we have to remember that as thousands are out shopping today standing in line for hours to save a couple dollars that there was a time on a Black Friday that many stood in a line following to see what would happen with Jesus on this day.

Today, think about Jesus and that day when He took on the sin of the world, and endured the Cross for each of us.. Think about that Sunday morning and the tomb being empty...

Thanksgiving doesn't end on Thursday.. for us it is an everyday remembrance of what Christ did for us on that day!
