March 31, 2017 • John 19:28-37
How does this simple, human request make it to the permanent record of the gospel? Why does John want to be sure we remember that Jesus expressed thirst as he hung dying on the cross? John knows that through this simple human need we uncover profound theological truths about Jesus Christ and the fulfillment of scripture. Through these words of Jesus' he also addresses our spiritual condition as we seek to satiate a spiritual longing and desire deep within.
