Good morning.


The last thing Jesus said before dying on the cross was tetelestai - "it is finished." Tetelestai literally means "to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish."


Tetelestai is in the perfect tense in Greek. That's significant because the perfect tense speaks of an action which has been completed in the past with results continuing into the present.


When Jesus cried out "It is finished," he meant "It was finished in the past, it is still finished in the present, and it will remain finished in the future."


"It is finished " is our Saviour's final cry of victory. When He died, He left no unfinished business behind. "I successfully completed the work I came to do."


"Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." (John 19:30)


"At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there." (John 19:41‭-‬42)


Remember, though, Sunday was coming.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
