Last Words of Jesus
This is probably the most powerful sermon Jesus ever gave
The last words of anyone are a powerful legacy, often reverberating across generations. However, the last words of Jesus soar above all others because of who He was—and is.
In the Last Words of Jesus, you’ll experience a fresh encounter with Christ as Stu Epperson recounts the last seven statements uttered by Jesus on the cross, providing unique, thought-provoking insights, and interspersing additional commentaries from many of Christianity’s leading theologians and authors.
This one-stop resource and devotional will help you understand more deeply...
What Jesus said from the cross and why;
What His words mean for your everyday life;
Why Jesus came and why He suffered;
How to help others better understand all that Christ offers through His life, death, and resurrection.
My thoughts: With Resurrection Sunday coming up quickly, I think this book is a great read, since it focuses our minds on the last words of Jesus Christ. It challenges us to look deeper at the statement He made to the thief on the cross. His asking the Father to forgive "them" (us) for not knowing what they were doing, who they were crucifying. This is a beautiful book that helps one focus on the greatest sacrifice.
I received this book from Worthy in exchange for my honest review.
