‘Jesus: His thirst and your salvation’ (John 19:28)

Rembrandt_Harmensz._van_Rijn_073Jesus spoke seven times from the cross. The sixth of His sayings was the short and plain, ‘I thirst’. These woulds could be taken in a very simple sense and quickly passed over. Of course he was thirsty! Dying is hard work. But there’s a whole lot more to it than that! What did jesus mean when He said what He said?
