But Luke is way down at the bottom of the hill and the Roman soldiers won't let him by. He tries to sneak by them but they grab him and push him to the ground and beat him with their shields. While Luke is lying on the ground in pain, Jesus calls out again from the top of the hill, "Luke, Luke, come to me! I need to tell you something!"
Hearing Jesus call him again, Luke gets up and says, "Yes my lord! I'm coming!" He then goes around to the side of the hill and starts to climb up, but a Roman soldier sees him and punches him, picks him up and tosses him back down the hill like a sack of potatoes.
Luke tumbles down the hill, bouncing off of rocks and tree stumps until he rolls to a stop, but not after several ribs are broken, his face is bloody and bruised and his knees scraped.
Again, Jesus calls him, "Luke, Luke! I don't have much longer! Please come, I need to tell you something!"
So Luke musters all the strength he has left, crawls around to the back of the hill and starts to make his way up the hill on his belly, grabbing on plants and bushes to pull himself up the hill. Finally, he makes it to the foot of the cross without being seen by the soldiers. As he is lying at the foot of the cross, trying to catch his breath, Jesus again calls out, "Luke, Luke! Come to me!"
Luke takes a gasp of air and cries out from beneath Jesus, "Yes my lord! I am here! Look down!"
Jesus looks down and says, "Luke, I'm so glad you made it!"
Luke, barely able to speak asks, "My lord, what is it you need to tell me?"
Jesus says, "Oh, Luke, I can see your house from here!"
