And they that passed by derided him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, you that destroy the temple, and build it in three days, Save yourself, and come down from the cross. Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.
Y los que pasaban le injuriaban, meneando la cabeza y diciendo: ¡Bah! Tú que destruyes el templo y en tres días lo reedificas, ¡sálvate a ti mismo descendiendo de la cruz! De igual manera, también los principales sacerdotes junto con los escribas, burlándose de El entre ellos, decían: A otros salvó, a sí mismo no puede salvarse. Que este Cristo, el Rey de Israel, descienda ahora de la cruz, para que veamos y creamos. Y los que estaban crucificados con El también le insultaban.
So many seem to be doing the same to Jesus now days as what was done on this day. Do we expect Him to do miracles so that we can believe? We have seen blessings and miracles and we still expect and expect. Are we spitting on Jesus? Do we truly believe? I praise and thank You Jesus for not coming down from that cross that day; I thank You that You gave me a way to the Father knowing that I could not live up to the law. Praise be to our Savior!
