What Did Jesus Say On The Cross

What Did Jesus Say On The Cross

Introduction

The crucifixion of Christ is one of the most famous, most powerful moments in all of human history. So what did Jesus say on the cross? According to Matthew 27: 46-49, Mark 15: 34-37, Luke 23: 44-46, and John 19: 28-30, Jesus said seven things while being crucified. What follows is my take on why these words are important to us today.

Forgive them, they don’t know what they’re doing.

You said, ‘Forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.’ And when he had been crucified, the soldiers cast lots to divide his clothing among themselves. And sitting down there, one of the criminals who were hanged railed at him and said: ‘Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!’ But the other rebuked him, saying: ‘Do you not fear God because you are under the same sentence of condemnation? We indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.

The Lord then answered him and said: “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” And he said to him: “Truly I say to thee today thou shalt be with me in paradise!”

And it was about three hours later when Jesus cried with a loud voice saying: My God my God why hast thou forsaken me? At that moment there was darkness over all Judea (and also over all Jericho). The veil from top to bottom in The Holy Temple was torn apart as Jesus uttered these words*.

I assure you that today, you will be with me in paradise.

As Jesus was dying on the cross, he spoke to a criminal next to him. He said “I assure you that today, you will be with me in paradise.” This shows how compassionate and merciful Jesus was. By offering salvation to everyone who would accept it, he showed that all people are welcome to be saved. Jesus wasn’t asking for forgiveness from this man; he was simply offering it!

This promise of eternal life is also a promise of peace because when we are saved by God’s grace and mercy through faith in Christ alone for our sins, then we don’t need fear death anymore because we will live forever with God in heaven.

Woman, this is your son. Man, this is your mother.

When Jesus was on the cross, he was also caring for his disciples. When he asked God to forgive them, it wasn’t just for the sake of doing so; it was because he loved them and wanted them to be cleansed of their sins.

When Jesus was on the cross, he was also caring for his mother. He gave her to John, who took care of her until she died at an old age (John 19:25-27). This shows us how much Jesus loved Mary and how much he cared about all people in general rather than just his family members like some other religious leaders might have been tempted to do at that time period in history when religion wasn’t supposed to be political like it is now…

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?

When Jesus says these words on the cross, he is quoting Psalm 22:1. This is another way of showing his humanity—that he knows what it’s like to suffer and be in pain, just as we do.

The Psalmist (the composer of Psalm 22) was experiencing the same pain and suffering as Jesus had been through those last hours before death. This shows how much God loved us so much that he would not spare his own Son from suffering and death for us!

That Jesus lived is a fact of history. The evidence is overwhelming and conclusive.

The fact that Jesus lived is a fact of history. The evidence is overwhelming and conclusive. We have the writings of four biographies, thousands of letters written by those who knew him, hundreds of eyewitnesses who saw his miracles and resurrection, and the testimony of many men and women who were changed forever because they met him face to face on earth or in heaven.

This article will help you understand how someone could write about Jesus’ life without knowing if he was real or not – or if he was just an ordinary man like everyone else.

Conclusion

In a nutshell, Jesus said, “Father, forgive them…” and then he gave up his spirit.
