I thirst

Part 5 of 7 "7 Words from the cross" in the Spring 2016 VISION Newsletter

John 19:28 - I thirst.

Jesus is confirming that He has experienced this moment of victory of love over self as a human being and is confirming His humanity. He suffered for us in human form with all our sensations.

This account also confirms that the scriptures are fulfilled in Him.

  • For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15).
  • Isaiah says, Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows…But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:4-5).
  • When I was thirsty they offered me vinegar (Psalm 69:21).
