"Forgive them for they know not what they do" was a fulfillment of Isaiah 53:12: "He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors."

Jesus' statement to the thief, "Today you will be with me in Paradise," was the fulfillment of Matthew 1:21: "You shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins."

His words to His mother, "Woman behold your Son," fulfilled Luke 2:34-35: "[Jesus] is destined ... for a sign which will be spoken against (yes, a sword will pierce through your own soul also), that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."

At one point Jesus asked, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" These same words were spoken by David in Psalm 22:1: "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

His comment, "I thirst," fulfilled Psalm 69:21: "And for My thirst they gave Me vinegar to drink."

His declaration, "It is finished," fulfilled Psalm 22:31: "They will proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn—for he has done [finished] it" (NIV).

And finally, Jesus' final words, "Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit," were prophesied in Psalm 31:5: "Into Your hands I commit My spirit."

Jesus overcame the world to give you freedom in every area of your life—freedom from unforgiveness, freedom from sin, freedom in relationships, freedom from rejection, freedom from suffering, freedom to live victoriously, freedom to trust God! By faith in what Jesus accomplished on the cross, you can finish the course He has set for you.

Hebrews 12:2 says He is the "author and finisher of our faith" (NKJV). He has started you in faith and will stay with you until you have the complete victory! You have the seven freedoms you need to be victorious and prosperous in every way.
