If God’s day of grace is as a thousand years, there is an eternity of suffering in the compressed three hours of darkness of the cross.
In the daylight we see our Lord’s suffering at the hands of men; in the darkness He suffered at the hands of God. In the former it is the injustice of men; in the latter it is the justice of God. It is man’s hatred of the Bearer of sin; it is God’s hatred of the burden of sin.
