About this Lenten Study Lesson
In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words” — statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:
"Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."
"Today you will be with me in Paradise."
"Behold your son...Behold your mother."
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
"It is finished."
"Into your hands I commit my spirit."
NOTE: Each week, we'll discuss a different "final word" but you are encouraged to attend the entire series as your schedule allows.
