Easter will be tough for several of us this year as we are so used to celebrating the resurrection together. I am just starting this book and already I am intrigued by the 7 sayings. Even Jesus asked ‘why?’ Thank you to Robert Nash and Audra Jennings for sharing this book with us. Donna

Jesus’s words in Scripture capture who he was and what he was about. His last words on the cross, over two thousand years ago, offer gospel hope for our spiritual journeys today.

• “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34).
• “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43).
• “Woman, behold, your son!” Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!”
(John 19:26–27).
• “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46).
• “I thirst” (John 19:28).
• “It is finished” (John 19:30).
• “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” (Luke 23:46).

In this powerful, moving book, author Robert J. Nash explores a fresh perspective on a familiar event, guiding readers into the forgiveness, hope, comfort, and compassion of Christ’s words in his final moments on earth.

While pivoting history, Jesus graciously offers encouragement for Christians today and hope for seekers looking for significance in his death. In this glimpse into the heart of Jesus, Nash helps men and women find historical truths about Jesus’s love for the church in his death and resurrection.

Last Words includes a reflection section for small groups and a devotional prayer at the end of each chapter to help readers relate to God. For easy reference, men and women can find a Scripture index in the back of the book. Come and ponder the wisdom of Christ and see for yourself a new view of the cross.
