I’m no Bible expert. I wish I knew ancient Greek and Hebrew,butane thought come to my mind… While Jesus was dying on the cross Be said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”. I used to see that as Jesus forgiving those people who crucified Him on that day. However; I wonder if that was more general and was speaking to the Father to forgive all of us? Last, present and future. Didn’t Jesus go willingly to the cross? If He didn’t want to go no force in the universe would have had a chance to place God Yawheh there. He willingly sanctified Himself so that through His death and resurrection we could be free from our sins,so could it be that when we who believe call on the name of the LORD and decide to follow Jesus. The Father remembers the Sacrifice made and the voice of His Son saying, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”, so God the Father will forgive us, because Jesus truly is our redeemed and our Judge.
