The burden of our sin , shame , sorrow , and sickness was greater than the horrible physical torture of crucifiction. Worse still, was the separation from His Father as he paid the price for sin.
Danny writes: "He not only had the weight of sin on Him but also more immediate needs in mind like warning the women about future calamity (Luke 23:28-31) and making sure His mother was watched by John (John 19:25-27) and even reassuring a thief that he'll be in heaven, too. As well as asking for forgiveness of those crucifying Him."
What compassion, to tend to these needs during His time of need.
What a savior!
