JESUS THIRD SAYING FROM THE CROSS
John 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
The third saying was woman behold thy son
(1) Jesus respected his mother
John 19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
He was obedient while growing up
His objective in expressing his love
His planning for her future
(2) Jesus removes all human ties
John19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
All alone he purged our sins
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high:
He was sacrificed for our pardon
Totally broke the power of Satan
(3) Jesus ask John to care for her
John 19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
To prepare for his death
To care for her physical needs
To protect her from harm
(4) Jesus resisted all forces of evil
18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
18:12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him,
18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
The vicious attract form all evil
The vicarious suffering for the lost world
Victory in the defeat of Satan
(5) Christ relied entirely on his Father
John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.
Just the fathers will
Faithful to the word
Willingly fight with sin
(6) Jesus knew exactly what he was doing
John 12:27 Now is my soul troubled; and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
12:28 Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him.
12:30 Jesus answered and said, This voice came not because of me, but for your sakes.
12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
12:33 This he said, signifying what death he should die.
He had full control
He knew all the facts
He had the final command
(7)Christ reminds us of our spiritual needs
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
First we face death as a sinner
Faith in Christ secures salvation
Separation from God is unbelief
