  • What was a moment in your life that was hard, but you have pride that you finished?

Dig Deeper:  

Read John 19:28-30

  • What stands out to you from this passage of scripture? Give the Holy Spirit a moment to lead you to specific thoughts, words, or phrases. What insight, questions, or observations do you have? Write them down, and as a group try to answer them.
  • Why do you think Jesus intentionally said, “I am thirsty”? What scripture was He fulfilling?
  • What is the significance that Jesus is described as “having given up his spirit,” rather than just, “he died?”
  • What did Jesus mean by the words “it is finished?”

As a group, spend some time reading through all that Jesus finished in His death. Remember that Jesus’ cry of “It is Finished” was a cry of victory. As you read, be reminded that we stand in victory with Jesus. These are the victories accomplished for you and me! We can claim each of these!
