Grace To You’s Seven Last Sayings of Christ Series

Pastor John MacArthur and Grace to You have an excellent series of articles about the final words of Jesus (before he died) perfect for contemplation this Holy Week.

They begin with what has always been the hardest to believe (at least in my mind). That Jesus pleaded with God the Father to forgive the people putting him to death.

MacArthur writes, “One might even think that God incarnate would wish to call down some thunderous blast of judgment against such wicked men. But Christ was on a mission of mercy. He was dying to purchase forgiveness for sins. And even at the very height of His agony, compassion filled his heart.”

I highly recommend you read the whole thing here and keep an eye on the Grace To You blog for the entire seven-part series.
