Series "It is Finished"

Of the seven sayings of Christ on the cross, this triumphant declaration drew His act of self-sacrifice to a close. How would the people at the foot of the cross have understood these words? And, what was Jesus claiming in this statement of completion? This passion week, an understanding of Jesus’ last words from the cross can deeply enrich our appreciation of the love He expressed for us there.

A magnificent masterpiece of finishing well!

In the first-century Roman world, to be crucified meant your life did not “finish well.” Only the worst of criminals were executed on a cross. Today on Discover the Word, we begin a new study for Easter called, “It Is Finished.” Jesus’s crucifixion was a horrible picture that turned into a magnificent masterpiece that gives us hope that we can finish well! Join us today on Discover the Word!

Touching the lives of those around us

This week, we’re remembering how Jesus came to earth and died on the cross for our sins. But today on Discover the Word, we will discuss how part of Jesus’s mission was also to touch the lives of people in front of Him, day by day, moment by moment.

Part 3 - 03/23/16

Dashed expectations

Everyone experiences dashed expectations. We expect things to finish one way, but they turn out completely different. Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss how the Jewish people had trouble accepting Jesus as the Messiah because they expected Him to come as a conquering king. Instead, He came as a suffering servant. Join the discussion today  on Discover the Word!

Part 4 - 03/24/16

The perfect sacrifice completed on the cross

Jesus’s death on the cross appeared to be a failed rescue mission. Yet, His final words, “It is finished,” meant the perfect sacrifice had been completed once and for all. Today on Discover the Word, we will explore the ancient Jewish context of sacrifice. It will give you a deeper understanding of Christ’s atonement for your own sins. That’s today on Discover the Word!

Part 5 - 03/25/16

The motive behind Jesus laying down his life

Why we do something is as important as how we do something. That’s because motive matters. Today on Discover the Word, we talk about Jesus’s motive for laying down His life on the cross. Hebrews 12 tells us that it was “for the joy that was set before Him.” But what was that joy? It’s all wrapped up in the words “It is finished.” Listen to the Good Friday edition of Discover the Word.
