For example:

"Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing." Luke 23:34

This is usually thought of as Jesus addressing the Romans.

What if he was addressing his followers?

If it is looked at as saying that he was asking for his followers to be forgiven for not understanding his teachings and that he hadn't the time to correct their misunderstandings.

What do you think?

33When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."[e] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.


In context, I think the traditional interpretation is correct. Notice all the "they"s surrouding the verse you reference.. "they" came to the place, "they" crucified him, "they" divided his clothes.. in context, i would interpret "them" to be either the whole mob, or the soldiers specifically.

I think the second part may have been added later.

The whole subject of interpretations are interesting to me. I like to discuss some takes I have with a person more familiar with them than me.

I tried to do this on another board and it got interrupted, post hijacked etc.

Some folks can't deal with anyone asking questions like that.

I dont think that should be much of a concern for you here TFR, for starters it's your board, secondly I dont think there's anyone here thats not interested in tackling challenging issues. It doesn't mean that everyone will agree at all times, but i think this is a forum where people are very interested in working out issues. Some we might come to a consensus on, in others we will probably just have to agree to disagree

TFR,

This might be too personal a question, but I ask anyway..
How does your experience at the other board make you feel, emotionally? Angry? Frustrated? Disappointed? Do you feel bitter about the whole experience? I can infer from the 'flavor' of your relevant posts, I find myself doing so automatically, but I'd rather not.

TFR means Thanks For Reading , just a short tag/sign off line.

THM The Hooded Man is my handle here.

You act like I have left the other experience behind. I am the same as I was, just that I know and understand a lot more.

I run through emotions at the time and then move on. I explained my writing style on another post It is over on the Train response.

Let whatever come through, come through, unlike some folks, it is necessary to do that and even if we fet excited it will be brought back under control at some point. No Worries!

Thanks for Reading?! LOL, I never got that. I'm sure you posted that elsewhere, but, well, when I perusing forums at work I tend to read too fast. Razz

I used to sign the posts on PID in full then went to just the letters.
