John 19:30; “When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”

TETELESTAIIT IS FINISHED’ – You can find this phrase listed in Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary with the following info – #G5055, “to end, i.e. complete, execute, conclude, discharge (a debt) :- accomplish, make an end, expire, fill up, finish, go over, pay, perform.”

The Greek word for the phrase ‘It is finished’, is ‘tetelestai’. An interesting article on Bible.org defined it this way –

“Literally translated the word tetelestai means, “It is finished.” The word occurs in John 19:28 and 19:30 and these are the only two places in the New Testament where it occurs. … The word tetelestai was also written on business documents or receipts in New Testament times to show indicating that a bill had been paid in full. The Greek-English lexicon by Moulton and Milligan says this:

“Receipts are often introduced by the phrase [sic] tetelestai, usually written in an abbreviated manner…” (p. 630). The connection between receipts and what Christ accomplished would have been quite clear to John’s Greek-speaking readership; it would be unmistakable that Jesus Christ had died to pay for their sins.”

I have to say though, the biggest discovery outside of knowing the real Jesus of the Bible was learning about Holy Week. Thirty years in Mormonism hadn’t revealed any significant details leading up to Resurrection Day, thus my fascination twenty-two years later. I was saved on Palm Sunday 1993.

crosses 3Luke 9:23-25; “And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. 24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. 25 For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away?”

A couple of weeks ago my pastor spoke on taking risks and what our responsibilities are as members of the church of Jesus Christ. He based his sermon on the passage above and of course I began thinking about the Mormons. For this article   I have two objectives to explore and they are;

What did Jesus mean when He said ‘pick up your cross’?

What does this phrase mean for the Mormon?
