Good Friday 2013: Words from the Cross
From our 2013 Good Friday service.
And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
And he said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”
After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.”
When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last.
