22 John 19:28-30 After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), I thirst. A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, It is finished, and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. (ESV)

23 What Was Finished? The big question of Johns gospel account Revealing God's glory - God's love Formation of a new community based on self-sacrificing love Removing sin and its curse by becoming sin and its curse (2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 3:10-14)

24 Removing the Curse (1/2) Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:17-21 ESV)

25 Removing the Curse (2/2) Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us For all who rely on works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, Cursed be everyone who does not abide by all things written in the Book of the Law, and do them. Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for The righteous shall live by faith. But the law is not of faith, rather The one who does them shall live by them. Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us for it is written, Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith. (Galatians 3:10-14 ESV)

26 Curse Reversed (1/2) Labor cursed with sweat Ground cursed with thorns Nakedness and shame to clothing Community broken A decision made at a tree Adam and Eve found faithless Jesus sweats blood Thorns placed upon Jesus' head Clothed to nakedness and shame Rejection of God's community Decision at a tree Jesus, the second Adam, is victorious The women are faithful to Jesus, the Son of God CreationCross

27 Curse Reversed (2/2) Community formed Bodies given life through the breath (spirit) of God Bodies created out of the dust of the ground World created, bringing order to chaos New community formed Breath and life given up from body Body entombed in ground Nature descends into chaos The Resurrection and Ascension CreationCross

28 The Curse Lifted The curse of sin is finished in Jesus Relationships are restored (2 Corinthians 5:17-21) Real life is restored (Galatians 3:10-14) Jesus' resurrection is proof of victory over sin The pattern of redemption is assurance that evil will not continue forever

29 Its a Choice We dont have to remain under the curse Wrath of God Judgment Each person has a choice to make We can choose to change our citizenship from the cursed world to the new kingdom of God We can choose to belong to God's family, by becoming a child of God

30 Choose Life Moses farewell address (Deut. 30:19-20) John, in his gospel prologue (John 1:1-5, 9-14) Jesus, speaking to Martha (John 11:25-26) Jesus, speaking to the Jews (John 12:35- 36)
