Lenten Sermon Series: What So Good about Good Friday?
The First Word: Father Forgive Them

Luke 23:32-34, NRSV

Reflections

Instead of genuine forgiveness, our generation has been taught the vague notion of “tolerance.” This is, at best, a low-grade parody of forgiveness. At worst, it’s a way of sweeping the real issues in human life under the carpet…. Jesus’ message [of forgiveness of sins] offers the genuine article and insists that we should accept no man-made substitutes.
— N.T. Wright
The Lord and His Prayer

  • Teach us about ourselves
  • We don’t know what we don’t know (v34)
  • Soul Ignorance
