Like much of what Jesus said during His years among us, the words He said while He was dying on the cross are important. Truthful. Resonant. Iconic. Yet, there is a special poignancy to the seven times Jesus spoke as He was dying on the cross. These words ring with deep truths that speak to far more than their immediate context. Join us in setting aside a few minutes each day in the seven weeks leading up to Easter as we take a look at each of these moments with the desire to understand their deeper implications and we seek to implement these truths into our lives.
