The Truth is it is Finished

IT IS FINISHED is a term mostly misrepresented
found in John 19:30,   It is quoted by Jesus Him-
self in – Matt. 5:17 – stating that He came to ful-
fill the law and prophets and not to destroy such.
So, the CONTEXT of John 19 is the key.  John
19:28 tells us that of all the laws and prophecies
in the O.T., a last one was yet to be fulfilled, that
of saying “I thirst” – Psalms 69:21,  So, V.29
shows that He then fulfilled, even, ALL these
Prophesies.  Then Jesus could truthfully state
“IT IS FINISHED.”  He herein was not referring
to Redemption, but that of O.T. Prophesies.
