On that very first “Good Friday” over 2,000 years ago, as Jesus drew His final breath on the cross, He uttered those amazing words… “it is finished”!
He drank of the bitter cup of suffering and pain both before, and while He hung on the cross. His mission to come to this earth to provide hope and forgiveness of sin was completed both then, and now!
“It is finished” is the Greek translation of “Tetelestai.” It comes from the verb “teleo” which means “to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish.” Yet, it did not mean that “He” was finished because there was, and still is, work to do!
