Luke 23, John 19 and Matthew 27 - Good Friday Message
When people say it’s finished or it’s over, they usually mean that everything is lost and there is no hope. I bet that’s what a lot people thought Jesus meant when he said, “It’s finished!” But when we look at things from a different angle, the meaning can be completely different - and that’s the case for Jesus’ statement I believe. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “It’s finished?” I think he meant that his work was finished - and his work was to save people from dying. In fact, he did that twice after his arrest - first for Barabas, and second for the thief. And we too can have confidence that he wil save us.
