A Selection from the chapter "Calvary," about the crucifixion:
"The Saviour made no murmur of complaint. His face remained calm
and serene, but great drops of sweat stood upon His brow. There was
no pitying hand to wipe the death dew from His face, nor words of
sympathy and unchanging fidelity to stay His human heart. While the
soldiers were doing their fearful work, Jesus prayed for His enemies,
'Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.' His mind
passed from His own suffering to the sin of His persecutors, and the
terrible retribution that would be theirs. No curses were called down
upon the soldiers who were handling Him so roughly. No vengeance
was invoked upon the priests and rulers, who were gloating over the
accomplishment of their purpose. Christ pitied them in their ignorance
and guilt. He breathed only a plea for their forgiveness,—'for they
know not what they do.'
"Had they known that they were putting to torture One who had
come to save the sinful race from eternal ruin, they would have been
seized with remorse and horror. But their ignorance did not remove
their guilt; for it was their privilege to know and accept Jesus as their
Saviour. Some of them would yet see their sin, and repent, and be converted.
Some by their impenitence would make it an impossibility for
the prayer of Christ to be answered for them. Yet, just the same, God's
purpose was reaching its fulfillment. Jesus was earning the right to
become the advocate of men in the Father's presence.
"That prayer of Christ for His enemies embraced the world. It took
in every sinner that had lived or should live, from the beginning of the
world to the end of time. Upon all rests the guilt of crucifying the Son
of God. To all, forgiveness is freely offered. 'Whosoever will' may
have peace with God, and inherit eternal life."
