The thirtieth verse of John 19 records the final words of Jesus. With the words, “It is finished,” Jesus bowed his head and gave up his spirit. But John does not move on to the burial of Jesus yet. What is recorded in this paragraph is not contained in the other gospel accounts. Remember that John’s purpose is that we would believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and by believing would have life in his name (John 20:30-31). When we come to unique information in John’s gospel account, we must slow down and carefully consider what John is trying to teach us about our Lord and Savior Jesus.
