3 FAMOUS last WORDS “I’ve never tried this with a chainsaw before... but what could go wrong?” "This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us." -- Western Union internal memo (1876) “Are you sure the power is off?” "We don't like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out." -- Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, {16}

4 FAMOUS last WORDS “Pull the pin and count to what?” “Hey... I know that I’m not an electrician... but how hard could this be?” “Airplanes are interesting toys but of no military value.” -- Marshal Ferdinand Foch, French military strategist, 1911 “Sweetheart... those jeans make you look fat!” {16}

5 FAMOUS last WORDS As Jesus was suffering on the Cross He uttered 16 words that culminated in 7 phrases {16} John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Luke 23:32-34 Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there, along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

6 FAMOUS last WORDS First Thought A 700 year old prophecy is fulfilled {16} Second Thought Jesus modelled the importance of prayer Isaiah 53:12 “...because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

7 FAMOUS last WORDS First Thought A 700 year old prophecy is fulfilled {16} Second Thought Jesus modelled the importance of prayer Matthew 6:9 “This is how you should pray: ‘Our Father …’” Third Thought Jesus revealed our greatest need The Forgiveness of sin “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

8 FAMOUS last WORDS First Thought A 700 year old prophecy is fulfilled {16} Second Thought Jesus modelled the importance of prayer Matthew 26:28 “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Third Thought Jesus revealed our greatest need The Forgiveness of sin Ignorance does not equal innocence “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

9 FAMOUS last WORDS First Thought A 700 year old prophecy is fulfilled {16} Second Thought Jesus modelled the importance of prayer Matthew 9:6 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralysed man, “Get up, take your mat and go home.” Third Thought Jesus revealed our greatest need The Forgiveness of sin Ignorance does not equal innocence “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

10 FAMOUS last WORDS Number One Pray for those who hurt you {16} Matthew 5:43-44 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbour and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” Jewish culture = “eye for an eye” (Exodus 21:24) “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.” Roman Greco culture = god of revenge – Nemesis “My prayer for others may or may not change them but it always changes me.” Where is there a broken relationship?

11 FAMOUS last WORDS Number Two Pray for restoration {16} Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.” Practical forgiveness “Father, forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.” Colossians 3:13 “Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.” When man was at his worst – Jesus was at His best
