Luke Proctor preaches from John 19 on Sunday, July 18, 2021. The Sacrifice JOHN 19:16-17 Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified. So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). JOHN 19:18-19 There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle. Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. JOHN 19:20-22 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, "Do not write 'The King of the Jews,' but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews." Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written." JOHN 19:23-25 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven into one piece from top to bottom. "Let's not tear it," they said to one another. "Let's decide by lot who will get it." JOHN 19:23-25 This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said, "They divided my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment." So this is what the soldiers did. Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. JOHN 19:26 When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, "Woman, here is your son," and to the disciple, "Here is your mother." From that time on, this disciple took her into his home. JOHN 19:28 Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, "I am thirsty." JOHN 19:29-37 tetelestai Maybe Jesus means...the mission is accomplished. JOHN 13:1 Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. JOHN 17:4 I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do. PHILIPPIANS 1:6 ...he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Maybe Jesus means...Scripture is fulfilled. Maybe Jesus means...Satan is defeated. 1 JOHN 3:8 The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work. COLOSSIANS 2:15 ...having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Maybe Jesus means...sacrifices are done. JOHN 1:29 "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" HEBREWS 10:11-12 Because it is finished, your sin is paid for. HEBREWS 10:17-18 "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more. And where these have been forgiven, sacrifice for sin is no longer necessary." PSALM 103:12 ...as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
