Journaling In Your Bible; Sayings From the Cross


The seven sayings of Christ on the cross provide many lines of thought and application.  Think about the key words before each saying below and how Jesus fulfilled being called the perfect lamb of God (John 1: 29).



“Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

(Luke 23:34)



“Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

(Luke 23:43)



“…he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!”

(John 19:26-27)



“Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

(Matthew 27:46)


“I Thirst!”

(John 19:28)



“It is Finished!”

(John 19:30)



“Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!”

(Luke 23:46)


Jesus Christ is the “Lamb who was slain” (Revelation 13:8), for the remission of our sins (Matthew 26:28).
