Q: #70. What were Jesus' last words before He died?
By: Steve Shirley
A: Jesus' last words, of course, were said on the cross. The Bible tells us He said 7 things while dying there. Four of them were a fulfillment of prophecy. I will list them in the approximate order in which He said them.
#1. (Lk 23:34) Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. (Prophesied in: Ps 22:18)
#2. (Lk 23:43) And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
#3. (Jn 19:26-27) When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold they son. (27) Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother. And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
#4. (Mt 27:46)(Mk 15:34) And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ELI, ELI, LAMA SABACHTHANI? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? (Prophesied in : Ps 22:1)
#5. (Jn 19:28) After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. (Prophesied in: Ps 69:21, Ps 22:15)
#6. (Jn 19:30) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
#7. (Lk 23:46) And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into they hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. (Prophesied in: Ps 31:5)
