SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #588
THE SEVEN LAST WORDS ON THE CROSS
4. The Seventh Word
Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: "It is consummated." And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost. (John 19:30)

TO DIE A GOOD DEATH, we must do as our Lord Jesus did, i. e. resign ourselves entirely to the will of God, and commend our souls to the care of our heavenly Father, with a childlike love and confidence.


[From 'A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture' by Bishop Knecht, D.D.]
