Re: Luke 23:34, hmm?
Perhaps Jesus saw them as pawns, following the orders of others in ignorance of the truth of His identity. Also, it might be said that they were facilitating that which was necessary for Jesus to fulfill His purpose. Regardless, Jesus' forgiveness seems to be one of a general pardon and permittance and not a specific one. Kind of like: Father, do not immediately judge them for what they do, but rather allow them to do what they must in order to allow me to intercede on behalf of them and all humanity on the cross; and then see if perhaps they can find forgiveness through me.
