The greatest phrases ever spoken

The greatest words ever spoken came from a dying man…

1.  Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed.  When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.  — Luke 23:32-34  (If there is a more profound phrase uttered in all the world, I would like to know what it is?)

2.  One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!”  But the other criminal rebuked him. “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence?  We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.”  Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”  — Luke 23:39-43  (If there is a greater promise offered in all the world, I would like to know what it is?)

3.  Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last. — Luke 23:46  (If there is a better hope in all the world, I would like to know what it is?)

4.  And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, saw how he died, he said, “Surely this man was the Son of God!”  — Mark 15:39  (If there more profound truth in all the world, I would like to know what it is?)
