It is finished!

I have to admit I think I am guilty of having conflated the following to verses:

Mark 15:35 – With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

John 19:30 – When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

To think with a loud cry Jesus cried out “IT IS FINISHED!!” in a shout of victory….

when it would seem, the text doesn’t actually say that….

does it?

  1. It is finished!
    And the sky grew as black as the night.
    It is finished!
    And the people scattered in fright.
    The work had been done, redemption had been one
    The war was over without a fight
    It is finished!
    (Could use a litle theological tweaking concerning the fight, but still one of my all-time favorite Petra songs)
