Final Words at the Cross by Adam Hamilton

In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words”—statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves:

  • Father Forgive Them
  • Today You Will Be with Me in Paradise
  • Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother
  • My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?
  • I Thirst
  • It Is Finished . . . Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit
  • Postscript: The Words After That

In 24 Hours That Changed the World, Adam Hamilton took us on a Lenten journey through the last day of Jesus' life. Now in this inspiring follow-up book, Hamilton explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.

Each chapter begins with the biblical account followed by a first-person story as might have been told from the viewpoint of one of the characters at the cross. Then the chapter explores the meaning of Jesus’ dying words for our lives today. Following the last statement, a postscript recounts the words Jesus spoke following his resurrection, including what truly were the final words Jesus spoke while walking this earth.

Join the crowd now and experience the final words from the cross.

Final Words from the Cross offers six chapters/sessions plus a postscript chapter/session, so that classes have the option of a seventh session on Easter Sunday.

It is excellently written with heartfelt details. It is an easy read with so much feeling with Christian love and devotion. After reading this book I had a better understanding of Jesus' final days. I plan to retread it every year. I am so glad I read it and plan to read other Adam Hamilton books.

Well-structured and written in a manner for ready absorbtion by those ages 12 and up, regardless of one's sriritual background. Thoughtful and comprehensive analysis of Jesus' final words during His crucifuction as recorded in the four gospels, with some personal opinion mingled in. Raises some arguable questions and discussion topics, and for this reason it might be best to process in a group setting in addition to individual study. Great for a Lenten Study for small and large group setting alike.
