Stations of the Cross: Station Twelve - Jesus Dies


“Jesus said, ‘I am thirsty.’  A jar of wine vinegar was there and they gave him wine.  Jesus said, ‘It is finished!’  With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.”
John 19:28 & 30

It is finished.
Death’s finality.
God’s servant,
 crushed in sorrow.
Pierced for our offenses.
Shall we not stand
 watching, Lord
mourning the sins
You bear,
rejoicing in the pardon
You bestow?
Art by Lindsey Leigh - 2006
