  • Three wooden crosses

    GREAT FALLS – The Bible tells us of a crucifixion that took place nearly 2,000 years ago on a hill called Golgotha in Jerusalem.

    Three men were crucified on wooden crosses placed on the hillside.

    On one cross was a vile, arrogant man who was completely unremorseful for any wrongdoing. On the other cross hung a man who was guilty of a crime but sought repentance and mercy and found it.

    On the center cross hung Jesus Christ who was completely innocent of any crime or action that was considered sin.
