What were the last words of Jesus?
Question: What were the LAST WORDS of Jesus just before he died on the cross?
Answer: The last words of Jesus came when he finished the work God gave him to do. He became the perfect lamb of God that made possible the New Covenant or agreement between God and man. By willingly offering himself as the atoning sacrifice to take away the sins of the world, he made possible an eternal life of joy and happiness to ALL those who repent and obey God.
The following seven final or last words of Jesus were spoken while he hung dying on a cross. If we consider what John recorded in chapter 19 and verses 26 to 27 as a single statement, we have seven unique phrases.
The first two of his statements made from the cross come from the 23rd chapter of the book of Luke.
The third (or fourth, depending how you count) of his final statements comes when Christ notices the apostle John standing with his mother Mary. He says the following to her.
In regard to Bible prophecy, Luke 23:48 - 49 and Matthew 27:55 - 56 show that King David's statement that Jesus' family and friends would see his suffering from a distance was fulfilled.
