The cross of Jesus is many things, the most important of which is the nature of our salvation from sin. It is also evidence of the tender care of Jesus for others. In the third saying of Christ from the cross, Jesus expressed concern for His mother while remembering the sacrifice of His faithful follower. It is good that we consider this love of Jesus displayed during His hour of need.
