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.

Woman, Behold Your Son

Jesus\' Words from the Cross

Most of those who surrounded Jesus' cross were enemies who mocked and taunted Him. However, there were a small group of friends standing beside the cross who loved Him. Most of these were women, including His mother, who must have felt great anguish as she watched her firstborn suffer and die such a cruel death. In the midst of the great work of redemption, the accomplishment of God's eternal purpose, Jesus showed His love and care for His mother. He entrusted her to the care of the beloved disciple, John, with the words, "Woman, behold your son," and to John, "Behold, your mother."

Scripture References: John 19:25-27
