SEVEN CRIES FROM CALVARY
THE CRY OF FORGIVENESS
Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
THE CRY OF SALVATION
We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”
Luke 23: 41-43
THE CRY OF PROVISION
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: 26,27
THE CRY OF DESERTION
About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?”(which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).
THE CRY OF SUFFERING
Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled,Jesus said, “I am thirsty.”
THE CRY OF VICTORY
When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
THE CRY OF DEATH
Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.
