7 Statements Jesus Made While He Was Being Tortured And Lessons Learned

1. Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing ( Luke 23:34). 1. Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing ( Luke 23:34). Jesus came to this world to die because of the love he and his father have for we humans, and there is no better demonstration of that love than this statement of his. Anyone else would have spend his last hour before death thinking about himself, but was more concerned about those who are putting him to death. This is an important lesson in unselfishness and forgiveness. 2. Today you will be with me in paradise (Luke 23:43). Jesus made this statement to one of the thief who was being executed alongside him. The said thief admitted his wrong deed, accepted his deserved punishment and also showed remarkable faith in Jesus Christ in his worst moment. Jesus in turn rewarded him with a place in his coming paradise. We can learn a lot from this. 3. Woman, here is your son, and to the disciple, Here is your mother (John 19:26-27). Jesus show how unselfish he is with this statement of his. Death was right there with him, but instead of focusing on his own suffering, Jesus was more concerned about the long-term safety of his mother 4. My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me (Matthew 27:46). Many people who don't believe in the Bible always twist this statement of Jesus Christ to mean he was abandoned by God in his moment of needs, but that is not the case. Jesus already know he is going to be killed on earth. He made that statement to fulfil an earlier prophecy recorded in the book of Psalm 22:1 5. I am thirsty (John 19:28) That Bible verse already explained why Jesus made that statement. It was to fulfil earlier prophecies written in the Bible. Jesus request led to the fulfillment of Psalm 69:21 - "They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst." 6. It is finished (John 19:30). This statement of Jesus signifies an end to a successful earthly ministry. His death is meant to give us a path to forgiveness and Jesus was saying, I successfully completed the work I came to do. 7. Into your hands I commit my spirit (Luke 23:46). Jesus last statement shows the respect and trust he have in God. Jesus also know that only his heavenly father can resurrect him. Like Jesus, we are safer if we commit ourselves to God.
