Words from the Cross Lenten sermon series

Our Lenten sermon series titled, Words from the Cross, will focus on the seven statements made by Jesus as he hung dying on the cross. These six weeks of Lent will focus on the last six hours of Jesus’ earthly life. The words of a dying person reveal that person’s heart and expose the thoughts they hold dear. In addition to that, the act of speaking while being crucified required great exertion and was very painful. So, it seems Jesus wanted to give us the gift of these words for our benefit. We will look at each statement seeking to understand what it reveals about God.
