Welcome to part 5 of #TheFinalWords series looking at the 7 statements of Jesus on the cross!
Jesus was both fully God and fully human, on the cross he experienced the full physical toll on his body.
“Jesus knew that his mission was now finished, and to fulfill Scripture he said, “I am thirsty.” John 19:28
He was actually thirst, but he also knew the prophecy in Ps 69:21 says, “For my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.” So soldiers soaked a sponge in sour wine, lifted it up for Jesus to drink!
This is just one of many prophesies Jesus fulfilled just during the crucifixion process!
The prophets predicted he would be… Rejected, humiliated, betrayed, and sold for 30 pieces of silver.
He would be silent before His accusers, mocked, beaten, and spit upon.
He would be pierced in his hands and feet, crucified with thieves, and compassionate toward his killers.
He would have cast lots for His clothing, sour wine given, his side pierced, his bones unbroken, and he would be buried in a rich man’s tomb!
Jesus fulfilled all of these! most of which he didn’t have any control over, unless he really was God!
So I am convinced that he really is God!
