Genesis Chapter 1: God – The “Who” of Creation – The Revelation of God through His Son Part 7

A trying word
“I thirst”
John 19:28-29

1) Jesus knowing
To know with certainty that the scriptures would be fulfilled
Everything that foretold the earthly life of Jesus had been accomplished

A) Jesus was fully conscience
He was fully aware of everything that was going on around Him

B) Jesus was fully confident
Everything that was incorporated for the completion of our redemption were about to be accomplished

2) Jesus thirsting
Jesus, the Son of God hanging on the cross
He had started His public ministry hungry from fasting (Matthew 4:1-2)
and He finished the work of redemption thirsty
This is the only time He calls out for His own need
We get a window into the physical pain and agony He is suffering for us
Through this window we learn something about His humility (Philippians 2:5-8)
and His humanity (Colossians 1:16)
Through this we know that Jesus does feel my hurts and needs because He felt and still
feels them as we do

3) Jesus fulfilling
That the scripture might be fulfilled
Jesus would never had opened His mouth if not for the Psalms (Ps 22:18, 69:21)
It was not His thirst that pried open His lips
It was uttered so that prophecy had been fulfilled
Jesus reveals a condition He did not request a drink
He simply says “1 thirst”
He did not ask for a drink but was obedient to the Lord
This is the only saying of the 7 that is said was written to fulfill scripture
Blessed are those who thirst for righteousness
Psalms 42:1-2
Matthew 5:6
Let those who thirst come

Revelations 17:22
For they will be given the water of life freely

Revelations 21:5-7
