Introduction

One of Jesus’ famous proclamation from the cross was, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Indeed, the Old Testament prophesied thousands of years earlier that the Messiah would pray for his enemies.

Old Testament Prophecy

In return for my friendship they accuse me,
but I am a man of prayer. [Psalm 109:4 NIV]

New Testament Fulfillment

But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, [Matthew 5:44 NIV]

Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots. [Luke 23:34 NIV]
