Discussion for Luke 23:46

  • Sachincko for verse 46
    Jesus stated no one takes my life, I lay it down, and if I lay it down I will take it up again. Jesus never lost control, even when He was on the cross. When He decided to give up the ghost was when he died. If I am not mistaken, crucifixion was not instant death. That is seen when we look at the two thieves. Scripture stated none of His bones would be broken. He stayed alive long enough to make sure Mary was taken care of, save the thief next to him, quote scripture, etc. all before the sabbath was upon them. When he gave up the ghost, there was no reason for his legs to be broken. Jesus giving up the ghost signified his dominion over death, even while He was on the cross. The thieves lived longer, therefore, their bones were broken.
  • Latasha gillette for verse 46
    I believe that it mean that it wasn't the physical beatings that killed Jesus he did not die from weakness and did not die until the holy ghost said he could die he spoke the words father into thy hands i command my spirit then he gave up the ghost.the work that the Father God had commissioned for Jesus to do was now completed.because of Christ shedding his blood on calvary,when we accept Christ as our personal saviour we are no longer God's enemy Christ death reconciled every believer back to God.he's our father and as we begin to do his will we are no longer caste away.Jesus is the way for all mankind to go to God thru the holies of holies and to heaven.we don't have to slay a lamb anymore Jesus is the perfect sacrafice we don't need anything else.animal sacrafice was a ritual act and could not remove sin but the blood of Jesus Christ wash away our sins.Thank God for Jesus.
