“It is Finished” – A Message that Might Be Fitting for Holy Week

Blessed Holy Week, fellow followers of Christ Jesus. We want so much to serve you as well as we know how on this most sacred week of our annual Christian calendar. As we reflected on how best to do that, we thought about this message that I had the privilege to give at Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia. My good friend, Louie Giglio, had asked me to speak on John 19 which records the crucifixion of Christ. Some of you have services to attend at your churches on Friday where you will gather at the Cross through the pages of Scripture and remember once more. This message is here for anyone who may not have that opportunity, who’d like to grab her Bible, turn to the most pivotal moment in human history, and set her mind afresh on what Jesus Christ accomplished on that hill that dark afternoon.

I am almost certain that you will also have a written post for Good Friday. We at Living Proof Ministries love and appreciate you so much and pray that Christ will reveal Himself astonishingly to you throughout this weekend and particularly on Sunday as we all celebrate the most beautiful words possible: “He is risen!”


With tremendous affection,

    I was there at Passion City Church in person when you gave that message – and my husband and I both agreed it was one of the best messages on the cross we had ever heard! Thank you for your faithfulness to the gospel and to our Lord Jesus Christ!

    This message was your best one yet!!!
    I woke up Sunday morning looking at my
    I-phone as a child would look into their
    Easter basket for a hidden treasure. I
    found several! You simply amaze me with
    your studies. I am so thankful that when I
    was stationed at Mountain Home AFB in 2000
    the O’Neils at a Nazarene church introduced
    me to your Bible studies! Thank you for being
    dedicated to what God has called you to do!
    Many blessings to you!

    Hello Beth,

    This was a wonderful message – I listened to it on Good Friday morning. Thank you!

    I was wondering about something though. I’m hearing impaired. I was able to follow your message for the most part with my computer speaker volume at the max since you speak pretty clearly, but you’re a fast speaker too. I need the CC feature when I watch TV and your Bible study DVDs have the subtitle feature that I appreciate so much, but I wish that these features were available for your online videos. I’m sure I’m not the only siesta who would like this too. Maybe you can look into this for the future?

    Thanks again,

      Thank you for your input, Jennifer. We are so glad that the CC option on the Bible studies has been helpful for you. We will be checking into this option for our streaming videos. Thank you for your suggestion!

    Beth, this teaching went deep into my heart. I have not ever heard such a powerful message on the Cross. I never thought about Christ knowing about all the betrayal, rejection, hate, abandonment, amount of pain and kind of death. I can’t wrap my head around it all.

    And I never pondered what it would be like for Jesus and Gof the Father to be reunited. This hit such a tender spot. It makes me so glad Jesus got to go back.

    I stand in awe of my God and Savior! Tears are falling as I meditate on this beautiful message of the cross. Accomplished indeed! Thank you so much for this. I will never grow tired of the Easter story. This is the best message I have heard in a long time. I love how you went through each passage. So much meaning. May God be glorified!

    Just took the opportunity to watch this and I can hardly breathe. I love the layers of scripture, the fulfilment of prophesy, the unbelievable, unfathomable love of my savior. Thank you!

    Thank you for making the first Easter come alive. I will carry that mental picture with me forever. So glad that after all that suffering, Jesus, had a glad reunion with The Father. So precious.

    You made reference to Loui’s message the week before… Is that a message we could also hear? Thank you so much for posting this audio for us.

      Hi Jamie, thank you for your question. This message was from 2012, but you would need to contact Louie’s church to see if they have online archives of his messages. Passion City Church, Atlanta, GA. Blessings!
