    Josh Ferguson...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. There are ONLY 2 Mary s at the cross. Mary, Jesus mother the wife of Cleophas AND Mary Magdalene His mother s sister . Mary married Cleophas Alphaeus after Joseph died. Mary, called Magdalene, is Mary s sister, Jesus Aunt!

    When Jesus declared that it is finished, could this also be interpreted in the context that He had finished setting up the governmental structure upon which the New Testament Church will be built?

    FINISHED -- JOHN 19:30 when JESUS therefore had received the vinegar HE SAID IT IS FINISHED and HE bowed HIS head and gave up the ghost JOHN 16:30 now we are sure that thou knowest all things and needest not that any man should ask thee by this we believe that thou camest forth from GOD

    LUKE 22:44 and being in agony HE prayed more earnestly and HIS sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground 19:28 AFTER THIS JESUS --- KNOWING THAT ALL THINGS --- WERE NOW ACCOMPLISHED THAT THE SCRIPTURE MIGHT BE FULFILLED SAITH I THIRST --19:30-- when JESUS therefore had received the vinegar HE said it is finished and HE bowed HIS head and gave up the spirit

    JOHN 19:10 then saith pilate unto HIM speakest thou not unto me knowest thou not that i have power to crucify thee and have power to release thee --19:11-- JESUS answered thou couldest have no power at all against ME except it were given thee from above therefore he that delivered ME unto thee hath the greater sin

    JOHN 19:30 when JESUS therefore had received the vinegar HE said --- IT IS FINISHED --- and HE bowed HIS head and gave up the spirit HEBREWS 9:16 for where a testament is there must also of necessity be the death of the testator --9:17-- for a testament is of force after men are dead otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth
  • A disciple
    Jesus submitted to the God-ordained supreme authority of the priests and the elders of Israel; even though they themselves were wicked, and used their authority for their own criminal agenda. The Roman Governor however was also guilty in that he hearkened to their voices, whom HE KNEW were only raging against Jesus out of envy and hatred, and that Jesus was innocent! Still Jesus bore it patiently!
  • A disciple
    The priests and rulers of the people delivered Jesus to the heathen to be put to death, and are the ones with the greater sin. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son... and this is what MEN DO IN RESPONSE TO THAT LOVE! Jesus being condemned and crucified shows man's wickedness and man's sinful and perverted condition. The Father vindicated His Son by raising Him from dead.

    "Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin." Vs 11. I've been asked, "Who is this, the HE that hath the greater sin?" Is it God? The answer is found in the previous chapter, vs 35, "Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priest have delivered thee unto me"..
  • Josh Ferguson
    I noticed that in verse 25 that it mentions Mary wife of Cleophas. This is the only mention of her or Cleophas in the entire Bible. Who is she and who is Cleophas?

    Judas betrayed Jesus Peter did not. Judas had a divided heart.
    Peter did not .
  • A disciple
    Jeff (cont. 2); Besides, every true Christian wants everyone to come to repentance, and find the mercy and grace of salvation: we want everyone to know the Lord Jesus like we know Him, and be blessed. But we have to be realistic; just like God is realistic: at a certain point even God has to let men have what they really want; and when they DON'T WANT JESUS OR HIS SPIRIT; then they are damned!
  • A disciple
    Jeff (cont.); You start out nice in your last post, but what don't you agree with? Can't you see a difference in the kinds of sins that men do? Jesus even said, that "ALL MANNER OF SINS SHALL BE FORGIVEN TO THE SONS OF MEN; BUT THE BLASPHEMY OF THE SPIRIT SHALL NEVER BE FORGIVEN: NEITHER IN THIS WORLD OR THE NEXT!" My view is that Judas' sin was against the Spirit, and he was rejected!
  • A disciple
    Jeff; I wasn't offended, Brother! I'm glad if I could help. As there aren't many who like to talk about such dreadful things as falling into sin, and outright betrayal of Christ; and what are the differences in sins, that like the Apostle John says; some we pray for and some we do not; some are unto death and some are not! Considering the matter of Peter and Judas is very important for all of us.
  • Jeff Berry
    Disciple, I think I understand now. I did not intend to offend you or disrespect Peter. But I don't think we are going to agree on this one. For that reason this will be my last post on this particular subject. I believe that we all are guilty of crucifying our Lord because "all have sinned...". (You, me, Peter and Judas). I want everyone to know via repentance, they too can enjoy God's grace!
  • A disciple
    Jeff; Blessings to you too! I'm so grateful for this chance to talk about the things of the Lord. Whether we are discussing points of doctrine, or meanings of words; or if we run into disagreements or false teachings; it causes us to sharpen our understanding and skill in the Word of God; and thereby examining and confirming ourselves and each other, growing in grace and the knowledge of Jesus.
  • A disciple
    Dear Jeff; I read again several times our little back and forth, and its simply about comparing Peter to Judas Iscariot. You said that they were going down the same path; I said that they were not at all, but completely different kind of men with completely different kind of hearts and characters. It is very important to know the differences for our business of saving with fear or with compassion.
  • Jeff Berry
    Disciple, I'm not certain of the reason for the "contention". I will certainly consider what you have said. Blessings to you.
  • A disciple
    Jeff (cont. 3); Lastly Brother, I think it is very important to understand things of this nature, as they have so much to do with not only our own walking in truth but how we should discern and be able to judge rightly among each other, and teach new Believers. Not everyone has a deceitful and desperately wicked heart! But many take Scriptures like that and throw it on everyone without discretion.
  • A disciple
    Jeff; for what cause is this contention? Did Judas Iscariot ever get engaged in his calling like Peter did? Was Judas named the first of all the Apostles? What time Peter spoke ill advised, was out of love for Jesus, but not understanding the meaning of the cross. How can you compare those two men? Judas fell away in his heart after covetousness, became a thief, and stirred up murmuring and evil.
  • Jeff Berry
    Disciple, your defense of Peter is unwarranted. I like Peter have through repentance been a recepeant of God's wonderful Grace! I want others to understand that (whatever sin they are guilty of) they (like Peter) can repent and be a partaker of that grace. Be like Peter not like Judas (who apparently never found repentance). I want everyone to know the wonderful grace of God that I have enjoyed...
  • A disciple
    Hi Jeff; Thanks for writing back! I'm glad you say we don't disagree; however I don't like the words, "same path" for what it implies. Up until the day Jesus was risen from the grave, and He breathed on them and opened their understanding to the Scriptures; it was hidden from them how Jesus had to go to the cross for us. All the disciples fled for fear; in this Peter was like them; NOT like Judas!
  • Jeff Berry
    Disciple; I don't think we "disagree". (Unless you believe that Judas had no choice...then I would respectfully disagree). Certainly, Judas had traveled much farther down that path than Peter. (And possibly Judas was never a believer). But Peter repented. I just see a contrast between Judas' choice and Peter's and an example of God's wonderful grace. Blessings my friend!
  • A disciple
    Jeff; you said, "..Two men, both heading down the same path.." I have to strongly disagree with you brother. There is a huge difference between Peter and Judas Iscariot! Peter loved the Lord Jesus, but being unprepared for the sudden crisis, he was filled with fear and not himself, and in that vulnerable condition, shamefully sinned. Judas on the other hand was willfully fallen away for some time.
  • Jeff Berry
    I do not doubt that Judas could have repented at any time....Scripture would have been fulfilled. We have here another individual (Peter) that is an example of someone that also denies Jesus but responds to God's grace by repenting. Two men, both heading down the same path but only one embraced God's wonderful grace.
  • Ray321
    John 19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. They were supposed to break Jesus bones, but thru the Grace of God, they didn't. The Bible is true and Holy.
  • Douglas G Wells
    All of this should of happen to set people free from sin. From then do today until Christ setts his kingdom on new Earth and new Heaven

    JOHN 19:19 AND PILATE WROTE A TITLE AND PU IT ON THE CROSS AND THE WRITING WAS JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS 1 CORINTHIANS 1:17 FOR CHRIST SENT ME NOT TO BAPTIZE BUT TO PREACH THE GOSPEL NOT WITH WISDOM OF WORDS LEST THE CROSS OF CHRIST SHOULD BE MADE OF NONE EFFECT 1:18 FOR THE PREACHING OF THE CROSS IS TO THEM THAT PERISH FOOLISHNESS BUT UNTO US WHICH ARE SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD

    V. 26 - in the back 'comments' pg. it has been noted that the disciple whom Jesus loved was - somebody's - nephew. This is what is meant by - "wrest - to their destruction"
  • Irene123
    People just don't understand about Sun. worship: it's not a DAY we worship, it's the PRACTILITY of Sunday: a LOT of people don't work at their jobs on Sun. Phariseeism, narrow mindedness, self-righteousness. Sunday is just common sense. Saturday is fine with us for folks who worship on that day; it's not the day one worships, it's WHO. Outside of the cup is beautiful, but ........
