It's past 12 so today we celebrate the death of Jesus Christ. A physical body, born of no social class who would be covered more then any king that
has lived, breathed or walked on the empires of this earth.
"Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do." Luke 23:34
Jesus is looking down from the cross. He sees the soldiers who have mocked him, scourged him and tortured him, and who have just nailed him. Does he
react angrily? No. At the height of his physical suffering, his love prevails and He asks His Father to forgive.
2."Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise." Luke 23:43
This expression offers us hope for salvation
3."Woman, behold your son. Behold your mother." John 19:26-27
Christ calls her not mother, but woman; not out of disrespect to her, or as ashamed of her; but partly that he might not raise, or add strength to her
passions, by a tenderness of speaking; and partly to conceal her from the mob, and lest she should be exposed to their rude insults
4."My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Matthew 27:46
After 3 hours of darkness, Jesus cried out this fourth word. This cry is from the painful heart of the human Jesus who must feel deserted by His
Father and the Holy Spirit, not to mention his earthly companions the Apostles
5. "I thirst." John 19:28
Jesus is now in shock. The wounds inflicted upon him in the scourging, the crowning with thorns, and the nailing upon the cross are now taking their
6."It is... finished;" John 19:29-30
The sixth word is Jesus' recognition that his suffering is over and his task is completed.
7."Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." Luke 23:46
The seventh word is directed to the Father in heaven, just before He dies in the ninth hour (three o'clock) in Judea
