We all know and believe there is a God because John 1:1 tells us so.Approximately 117 days ago we celebrated Christmas. The reason for the season can be found by reading Luke 2:1-20.
Yes, we all look forward to the Eater egg candy, the Easter bunny, family gathering and another big feast. But the true reason we celebrate is because of Easter’s Most Famous Quotes and what happens after that.
Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. Luke 23:34.
In plain English this means, “Don’t be angry at someone for doing something bad if they are ignorant and don’t know what they are doing is wrong, or if they don’t know a better way to do something.”
However biblically, “When Jesus was crucified, he uttered these words about those who begged for his crucifixion. He asked his father, who, in Christian theology is known as God the Father, for forgiveness of those who asked for his murder”
Today you will be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43. …
The scriptures teach us that if you believe and follow Jesus, one day you will be with Him in heaven.
Behold your son: behold your mother. …
The only parent left as we can assume by this time that Joseph has passed on, Jesus takes care of his Mother by asking a close friend the Apostle John to take care of his mother.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? …
This is the portion of the crucifixion where Jesus is paying the ultimate price for our sins thus granting us eternal life.
I thirst. …
Not finished just yet, he is dry and needs to be able to speak the final words, he requests a drink.
It is finished. …
Finished in the past, present and the future signifies that he has accomplished the mission he was sent for. He did not cry I am finished for that would indicate that he was defeated and that is not the case.
Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.
This shows us that even on his dying moments, he offers a prayer to his Father. It shows that Jesus trusts His Father and finally he surrenders to His father.
THEN HE BREATHED HIS LAST!!!!
Therefore, we celebrate Easter.
