This study is the conclusion and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the final interrogative question of “why” was “it is finished”?

Are you slaving for God’s grace? Or are you serving Him from His grace?

VI) The sixth interrogative question is “why” was “it finished”?

It is finished | John 19: 28-30 | Part 3 We are embarking on a four part study of the cross of Christ. This study is part three and our focus has been on our English version words: “It is finished” which comes from one word in the original Greek: “tetelestai”. Let's pick up where we left off last time with answering the interrogative question of “what” was involved in “it is finished”?

Jesus came to make reconciliation between God and man possible: “For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation” (Ro. 5: 6-11). It is finished!

Jesus Christ: Both the Son of man and the Son of God. He was introduced by His cousin John as the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Jesus is also known as the Lamb Who was slain from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13: 8). There is a popular country song that has as one of its’ main refrain’s as “you were always on my mind” is referring to a love in his life.

Well, the cross was always on the mind of Jesus Christ. From the beginning of time, God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit had the plan of salvation laid out and secured for the salvation of mankind. Jesus just didn’t carry His cross up the hilly street of the Via Dolorosa, He had been carrying it since the beginning of the world!
