Jesus is known to have said many things as recorded in the Bible. However, the seven things Jesus said on the cross are of utmost importance since they happened as Jesus was dying. Here are the seven things Jesus said on the cross:
"Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."
while being crucified (Luke 23:34)
"Today you will be with me in paradise."
after one of the thieves repents (23:43)
"Woman [Mary], behold your son [John]!"..."[John] Behold your mother [Mary]!"
while preparing to die (John 19:26-27)
"My God, My God why have you forsaken me?"
after darkness noon to 3pm (Matthew 27:46)
knowing that all things were now accomplished "John 19:28)
"It is finished."
after receiving the sour wine (John 19:30)
"Into thy hands I commit my spirit."
right before dying (Luke 23:46)
