Our Savior hung on the cross for six hours. As He hung there, He spoke to God, to His mother, to the repentant thief, to John, etc. Seven sayings from the cross teach us much about the things that were important in the mind of the Savior as He approached the moment of His death.
Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.
Woman, behold thy son. Son, behold thy mother.
Verily, I say unto thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise.
Eloi, eloi, lama sabacthani.
It is finished.
Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.
