“Jesus forgave the crime of murder on His cross; and after His resurrection He commanded His disciples to preach the gospel of forgiveness, first at Jerusalem where he well knew His murderers still resided. These striking facts are recorded for our imitation, and seem intended to show that the Son of God died not only to reconcile God to man but to reconcile men to each other.”

Benjamin Rush, signer of Declaration of Independence
