An Hour of Great Sorrow

  He had been with them three years or more, teaching, healing, comforting, correcting, guiding, fulfilling the prophecies and showing Himself to be the Savior of mankind. But now He was gone. They had seen what took place at Calvary. "And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned" (Luke 23:48)/ Their loved one was dead and their hopes were dashed. Even though mistaken about His kingdom, they grieved deeply.

  Their hour of sorrow would soon be turned to joy upon the resurrection of Christ the third day as foretold. But try to imagine being among them at the point of His death. Would not you also sorrow beyond expression?
