Jesus’ Seven Last Words from the Cross
A traditional way to meditate on the cross of Jesus Christ and its significance for us is to reflect on the “seven last words” that Jesus Christ spoke while on the cross.
By all accounts, Jesus did not do a lot of talking on the cross. But if you look at the different accounts of the crucifixion in the four Gospels, these seven last sayings of Jesus are written down for us. Taken together, they give us a window into Jesus’ soul as he was dying in our place.
I have asked several people in our church family to contribute a short reflection on these sayings. Think of this as a Holy Week devotional produced by our church family. I pray that these reflections aid you to ponder the wonderful mystery of what Jesus accomplished for us on the cross.
