This famous 3-word phrase Jesus utters on the cross, "It is Finished", was actually just a single word in the original Greek: Tetelestai, meaning "It has been and will forever remain finished" and "paid in full." This begs the question...what is the "it" that has been finished? While we will never fully grasp the breadth and magnitude of what Jesus completed in His time on earth, or the specific work on the cross, we do know that it is simultaneously cosmic and eternal while also deeply personal to each of us. Jesus' work shows us God's holy, just hatred of our sin and His gracious, understanding love of sinners like you and me. We find rest today in knowing that Jesus' work has been and will forever remain finished.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: The Gospel of John was written "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you may have life in His Name" (John 20.30). The Apostle John, as an eyewitness and close friend of Jesus', desires for us to behold His beauty, love, and glory, and believe in His power and willingness to being forgiveness and life. As we journey through the Gospel of John, we will behold the life, teachings, works, and ministry of Jesus, and will hear straight from Him who He said He is, so that we would more deeply put our hope and trust in the Man who is God.
