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.

Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit

Jesus\' Words from the Cross

Nearing the time of His death, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "It is finished!" Having completed the work the Father had given Him to do, bearing the penalty for our sins on that cross, it was time for Jesus to enter into His rest. So, bowing His head, He gave up His spirit, saying, "Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit," and He breathed His last breath. In this morning's message, we examine the significance of this final statement Jesus made from the cross. We also consider: What happened to Jesus in death? Where did He go for the three days and nights before His resurrection?

Scripture References: Luke 23:46, John 19:30
