The Last Words of Jesus

  1. Jesus on the cross teaches us the necessity of forgiving our enemies. (Luk. 23:34) “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.
  2. In His agony, He teaches us to honor our parents, and to fulfill life’s duties. Joh. 19:26-27 “Woman behold your son… behold your mother.
  3. To the dying thief He teaches that eternal life can be found only by faith in Him. (Luk. 23:43) “And He said to him, ‘Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in paradise.’
  4. Through quoting scripture He teaches volumes about the penalty of sin, and the character of a Holy God. (Mat. 27:46) “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying ‘My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?’
  5. By a request, He revealed the human frailty which He partook, and the value of compassion among men. Joh. 19:28 “I thirst.
  6. With a victory shout, He announced His triumph over Satan, sin and death. Joh. 19:30 “It is finished.”
  7. With a sigh, He showed the final release and certainty of a lifetime of submission to His heavenly Father. Luk. 23:46 “And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, ‘Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit.’ And having said this, He breathed His last.
