As Christ was lifted between heaven and earth upon the cross, He uttered seven statements as He hung dying to provide redemption for fallen humanity. The first was a prayer to the Father, one in which Christ sought forgiveness for those responsible for the crucifixion.

Luke 23:33a – And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him. These are the solemn words that Luke records concerning the crucifixion of our Lord. There is no great detail, just a simple statement, there they crucified him.
