Greetings to everyone! Today is Good Friday, and Christians all over the world are commemorating on what Jesus had done around 2000 years ago. Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us all from our sins. This event was recorded in the Holy bible in the gospels written by the four evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The betrayal of Judas led to Jesus’ crucifixion which He suffered an indescribable end. Today, let’s meditate on the passion on the cross through recalling the seven last words of Jesus Christ on the cross.
Last words are important, because these reveal to us the heart of the person. Below is a list of last words spoken by famous personalities. When you read them, they will throw a light on their true nature and character.
