The meaning of forgiveness

.

Forgiveness from God,

and forgiveness for others,

is joy made complete

for all loving brothers.

 

The Lord’s forgiveness:

Luke 23:33-34

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

.

Christian forgiveness:

Act 7:59-60

And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.

And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
