Likewise the ruling kohanim, along with the Torah scholars, were also mocking Him among themselves. “He saved others,” they were saying, “but He can’t save Himself? Let the Messiah, the King of Israel, come down now from the stake, so we may see and believe!” Even those executed with Him were ridiculing Him.
Even as Yeshua was doing the very thing He had to do to redeem us from sin, the leaders still mocked Him because it didn’t fit into their belief system. For years I was book smart about the bible but my comprehension was minimal. There must be an infilling of the Spirit while one studies the Word for complete understanding. For me this didn’t happen until I truely accepted Yeshua as my savior. Thank you God for Your salvation through Yeshua, amen.
