Gospel Reflection for March 24, Palm/Passion Sunday

18 Mar

 “Father into your hands I commend my spirit.”  After Jesus said this, he died.

Luke 23.46

How can a man who is crucified be God’s messiah who comes to save people and bring them new life?  Jesus, who dies the death of a criminal, isn’t even powerful enough to save himself.  The first Christian preachers had to face mockers’ questions: How can Jesus be the king of the Jews, the messiah of God, God’s chosen one?  If he is, he would have the power to save himself or God would save him.

What are your questions about the Jesus’ crucifixion?
