Discussion for John 19

  • Mark Hartzell
    The birth of Jesus came by SPIRIT, and was born by WATER and BLOOD.

    The baptismal of Jesus was by WATER, the meat He ate that day was the BLOOD, and He was lead into the wilderness by the SPIRIT.

    For when He was crucified on the Cross, His BLOOD was shed for all mankind. Then the SPIRIT and the soldiers knew that He was dead. For He was pierced from the side and out came WATER and BLOOD.
  • BSP
    Jesus first concern was accomplishing God's will. In verse 30 he could finally say "it is finished" when he carried out his Father's will to his death.
  • Success
    we need to give our life to GOD , so that all that JESUS suffer for us in the cross will not be in vain .accept the salvation, so that you will be save , when you do that the lord will bless you in JESUS NAME AMEN.
  • Thd phrase "It is finished " means that Eolhim 's design is completed. Eolhim created the cosmos. The cosmos became flesh. All have sinned except one. The Lamb of God. 16 "For God loved the world in this way He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life. John 3:3-5 ...no one can see the Kingdom of God unless born again of water and the Spirit. James 3:10 tells us that cursing and blessings can not come out of the same mouth, Jesus tells us a house divided can not stand...

    All prophecy was fulfilled how could we doubt that Jesus was the Christ?
  • A magistrate is regarded as someone having the super powers in the worldly human sense but I see Jesus Christ overiding all their powers and instituting his dominion ,authrity and power. He said unless the power is given from above that is Christ himself.
