Last Words of Jesus by Stu Epperson Jr.
Have you ever thought about the last words of Jesus? As He was dying on the cross Jesus uttered just a few last words before His death.
Stu Epperson Jr. invites the reader to take a deep look at those words and not simply read them.
Jesus forgives His killers, takes care of His mom, and shows His humanity.
For example, Jesus says, "I thirst" while on the cross. Think about that. The Living Water is saying He is thirsty. Epperson points out that the One who said to come to Him and never thirst again...is thirsty. The magnitude of that statement should not be lost and the casual reader would do well to dwell on the power of that thought: the Living Water is thirsty.
It is nuggets like these that Epperson points out to the reader so that they can fall deeper in love with their Savior.
