  • Luke 23:34, “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.”
  •  Luke 23:43“And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.” (NASB)
  • John 19:26-27, “He said to His mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!”
  • Matt. 27:46 Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” 
  • John 19:28,  “I am thirsty.” 

6. John 19:30, Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.(NASB)

Cuando Jesús hubo tomado el vinagre, dijo: Consumado es. Y habiendo inclinado la cabeza, entregó el espíritu. (RVR 1960)

  • Luke 23:46, “Father, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT.”

Today we look at the SIXTH thing Jesus said on the cross; “It is finished!”

The first question I had to ask myself was what was it that was finished? Many commentaries imply that Jesus is saying His life is expiring so He is finished, but does He say “I am finished?” No He say “It” so He has to be speaking of something else something impersonal. 

Jesus came for a purpose (John 3:16and as we saw in our devotional Jesus Said “I AM” Part VI that included being obedient to the Father and fulfilling all of scripture. So what Jesus is saying in His declaration of “It is finished” is far more than simply I have had enough, my body is spent I am ready to die. He is BOLDLY declaring that He has accomplished all that was 

Required of Him: Becoming a lowly human in order to save humanity (Philippians 2:6-7)

All that is Necessary of Him: To fulfill the Law (Matthew 5:17-18) to suffer (Isaiah 52:13–53:12) and to leave for us an example to follow.

All that was prophesied of HimFrom before the fall God knew and had a plan (Gen 3:15, Isaiah 7:14 Psalm 16:8-11and that is just a few.

to reconcile man to God (Up until this point, we can not discount or minimize the resurrection).

CHRIST’S FINISHED AND UNFINISHED WORK (Note scroll down to about half page to get to the beginning of the text)

One of these sayings was spoken from the Cross, the other from the Throne….
