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.

Today You Will be with Me in Paradise

Jesus\' Words from the Cross

Jesus was "numbered with the transgressors," being crucified between two thieves. Initially, both thieves joined with the crowds in mocking and taunting Jesus. However, as the morning wore on, one thief had a change of heart and mind--a genuine repentance. We examine what caused such a change in this repentant thief as he hung on the cross. We also look at the difference it made in his eternal destiny as we consider Jesus' second statement from the cross, "Assuredly, I say to you, 'Today, you will be with Me in Paradise'" (Luke 23:43).
