The greatest love a person can have for his friends is to give his life for them. (John 15:13)
It was about twelve o’clock when the sun stopped shining and darkness covered the whole country until three o’clock; and the curtain hanging in the Temple was torn in two. Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Father! In your hands I place my spirit!”He said this and died.
The army officer saw what had happened, and he praised God, saying, “Certainly he was a good man!”
When the people who had gathered there to watch the spectacle saw what happened, they all went back home, beating their breasts in sorrow. All those who knew Jesus personally, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance to watch. Luke 23:44 – 49, TEV [/restrict]
