Luke 23:34

"Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted His raiment, and cast lots."

The Bible passage above is a proof that all offenses are of the devil and forgiveness particularly is of our Lord Jesus Christ. As of the time Jesus made the above statement He had been condemned and experiencing pains from the experience on the cross.

Though the scenario on the cross, our Lord Jesus Christ gave blanket forgiveness. Though it was very distressing and overwhelming, Jesus knew that they were carrying orders from the “above” from the throne of hell. Jesus looked down from the cross; at the world below the cross to forgive, while the blood flowed.

The leaders, Pharisees and Saducees had deceived the people that Jesus was a fake prophet and troublemaker, so they all took part in mocking, spitting, whipping, jeering, etc. However, in the agony of the Master Jesus, a blanket forgiveness was released to the whole world. The lesson today is for us to learn from Jesus and forgive in all offenses, because the offenders really do not know what they are doing! Jesus is an exemplary example of total forgiveness.
