As Jesus’ life comes to an end on the cross, he speaks few words, but they are powerful. These words have been traditionally called the seven last words of Jesus.  Actually, they are seven messages that we most need to hear. If we are willing to draw close and listen, we can experience the holy privilege of intimacy, compassion, forgiveness and divine love and awe that he desires for each of us. Some are prayers, spoken directly to God. Some are spoken to others. All are meant for us to overhear as we stand near the cross… And the words he offers today, are perfect for bringing hope into our anxiety filled world and lives. 

 

Matthew (27: 46) and Mark (15:34)

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

 

Luke

            24: 34 Father forgive them: for they do not know what they are doing.

            24: 43 Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.

            24: 46 Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.

 

John

            19: 26 Woman, here is your son… Here is your mother

                       (Woman, behold your son. Son behold your mother.)

            19: 28 I am thirsty

            19: 30 It is finished
