 Description: In this Lenten study, Adam Hamilton examines Christ's dying hours in his final words from the cross in six study sessions. In the final and seventh lesson Hamilton looks at the words Jesus spoke to his disciples after the Resurrection and on the road to Emmaus. The accompanying book also provides a story each week from a person who stood near the cross and witnessed the crucifixion; such as Simon of Cyrene, Nicodemus, a Roman Centurion and several others. The seven lessons are 1) Father Forgive Them - The cost of forgiving our sins and extending us grace came at a great cost to God. God's grace and forgiveness comes to us even before we ask for it. We must claim this great gift and extend it back to others. 2) Today You Will Be With Me In Paradise - As Hamilton retells the story of Zacchaus and the two thieves on the cross, we recognize the need to love those who are unlovable. We also are invited to enter paradise, "the garden of God," with all who believe. 3) Behold Your Son…Behold Your Mother - Hamilton tells two stories, one from his church family and one from his own personal life that support these simple but powerful words. These words from the cross challenges us to care for our mothers and fathers and to care for those who may need us as our sons and daughters. (4) My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me -As Hamilton recreates the scene and crowds that surround the cross, we recognize ourselves in these people and also recognize God's sacrificial love for us; a love that changes the world. Even when Jesus feels forsaken, he still prays and sings to God. 5) I Thirst - Jesus experiences the full pain of suffering; he does not take the easy way out. The gospel of John gives us those two simple words to tell us who Jesus is. In the Old Testament he is the lamb whose blood marks the doorposts of our hearts so we can be saved from death. And in the New Testament he tells the woman at the well he is the living water. 6) It Is Finished…Into Your Hands I Commit My Spirit - In Jesus final words we find that Jesus has completed God's task of saving His people. These are not words of defeat but victory and of absolute trust in God. 7)Postscript: The Words After That - There are not only the witness of Jesus disciples and his followers on the road to Emmaus to Christ's resurrection. But we who are his followers today still witness to the blessings and love of the risen Christ in our lives. LEADER'S GUIDE/ BOOK
