The crucifixion of Jesus Christ is the greatest event in history; it is the central theme of the Scriptures; it is the crisis point through which God’s eternal purpose of redemption was accomplished. It is imperative that we study and know about this critical event in the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. In this series, we examine one particular aspect of the crucifixion: the 7 statements Jesus made while He hung on the cross. These statements, which were uttered during the greatest event in history, are clearly significant. We will look at the order in which the statements were made, the situation and purpose for each statement, and the insight each one gives us into the mind and heart of our Savior as well as the reason that He died on that cross.

These Bible messages were preached in 2020 by Pastor Gregg Bing during the morning worship service at Grace Bible Church in Fort Worth, TX.

Father, Forgive Them

Jesus\' Words from the Cross

We begin a new series of Bible messages looking at "Jesus' Words from the Cross." The crucifixion of Christ is the greatest event in history--the climax and fulfillment of God's eternal purpose of redemption for fallen mankind. While the words of Jesus are not more important or more inspired than any other portion of Scripture, the words He spoke while hanging on the cross are significant. They give us insight into the person of our Savior as well as a better understanding of the meaning of the cross to us.The Bible records 7 times Jesus spoke from the cross. The first was in the form of a prayer: "Father, forgive them ..." In this message we examine some key questions about this prayer: 1) Forgive who? 2) Forgive them for what? and 3) Forgive them how? While Jesus' sacrificial death did make possible the forgiveness of our sins, the meaning of Jesus' words from the cross have a special dispensational significance for the nation of Israel.
