యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన ఏడు మాటలు

మొదటి మాట :

తండ్రీ, వీరేమి చేయుచున్నారో వీరెరుగరు గనుక వీరిని క్షమించుము. (లూకా 23:34)

“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots” (Luke 23:34).
1. Having been falsely condemned, scourged, and crucified, He prayed for forgiveness for His enemies.
2. As He taught us to love enemies, He prayed for those who despitefully used Him (Matthew 5:43-48).
3. Though suffering wrongfully, our Lord Jesus Christ did not revile or threaten (I Peter 2:21-24; Is 53:7).
4. This prayer was (a) only for a few, (b) specific to one sin, and (c) based on human ignorance.
5. Rather than presuming eternal life for all present, let us match Stephen’s specific prayer (Acts 7:60).
6. And the Scripture was fulfilled, and he made intercession for the transgressors (Isaiah 53:12).
7. The mercy here sought and granted was only temporal for their abuse of Christ (Cp Acts 14:17).
8. Sin is aggravated by the degree of light in a person, and the soldiers had little (Lu 12:47-48; Jn 19:11).
9. Rejoice that such perfect righteousness was imputed to us in justification (Rom 4:6-8; II Cor 5:21).
10. The princes of this world did not know what they did; but we know things by His Spirit (I Cor 2:6-12).
1. They parted his raiment and cast lots for his woven coat (Matthew 27:35; Luke 23:34; John 19:23-24).
2. The Jews, rulers, soldiers, and thieves railed on him (Matt 27:39-44; Mark 15:29-32; Luke 23:35-37).


యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన రెండవ మాట :

నేడు నీవు నాతోకూడ పరదైసులో ఉందువు (లూకా 23:43)

“And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. And Jesus said unto him,
Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:42-43).
1. Both thieves had been railing against the Lord Jesus prior to these words (Matt 27:44; Mark 15:32).
2. But one thief began to defend Jesus and rebuke the other for his unjust accusations (Luke 23:39-41).
3. Men can only confess Jesus as Lord by the Holy Ghost (I Corinthians 12:3). Praise God for His grace!
4. This thief, by recognizing the kingdom of God, must have been born again to do so (John 3:3).
5. Therefore, we may conclude that Jesus Christ was speaking life even while dying (John 5:25).
6. Paradise is the third heaven (II Cor 12:1-7 cp Gen 1:6-8,14-19,20), where God and the angels dwell.
7. Both the elect thief and Jesus went to God’s Presence that very day, just as Paul taught (II Cor 5:6-8).
8. And we shall be instantly with the Lord in God’s Presence when we depart this body also.
9. Reject the New World Translation that moves the comma and teaches soul sleep from this passage, for the word “today” is modifying when the thief would be in Paradise rather than when Jesus spoke.



యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన మూడవ మాట:

యేసు తన తల్లియు తాను ప్రేమించిన శిష్యుడును దగ్గర నిలుచుండుట చూచి అమ్మా,యిదిగో నీ కుమారుడు అని తన తల్లితో చెప్పెను, తరువాత శిష్యుని చూచి యిదిగో నీ తల్లి అని చెప్పెను. (యోహాను 19:26-27)

“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother,
Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple
took her unto his own home” (John 19:26-27).
1. There was a particularly personal relationship between our Lord Jesus and John (John 13:23; 21:20).
2. The words addressed to Mary were not about Himself, but were directing her to consider John her son.
3. The words addressed to John were not about John’s mother, but were assigning Mary to John.
4. Even at death’s door, He showed obedience to God’s law with righteous zeal (Ex 20:12; I Tim 5:8).
5. He was lucid and strong enough to engage in wise mental preparation and cry out loudly several times.
6. Again, we should consider that such great righteousness was imputed to us by justification.
1. There was darkness over the earth from 12:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. (Matt 27:45; Mark 15:33; Lu 23:44).


యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన నాల్గవ మాట:

ఏలీ, ఏలీ, లామా సబక్తానీ, ఆ మాటకు నా దేవా, నా దేవా నన్నెందుకు చెయ్యి విడిచితివని అర్థము. (మత్తయి 27:46)

“And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mark 15:34).
1. These words are found prophetically in Psalm 22:1; and they are found comparatively in Matt 27:46.
2. These words are recorded in Hebrew to explain the following confusion by some present (15:35-36).
3. “Well might the sun in darkness hide, and shut his glories in; when Christ the mighty Maker died.”
4. The comfort of God’s gracious Presence and affection for Jesus had been withdrawn due to our sins.
5. The degree of loneliness is determined by the degree of love, affection, and unity had beforehand.
6. The relationship between Jesus and His Father had been inviolate for His life (Isaiah 42:1; Matt 3:17;
11:27; 12:50; 17:5; 26:39,42,53; Luke 2:49,52; John 1:18; 5:17; 8:19,28; 10:17; 14:20; 15:10; 18:11).
7. We are afraid of the darkness and unknown, and Jesus had endured three hours of both in great agony.
8. The waves and billows of God’s wrath rolled over the exposed soul of the Lord Jesus (Psalm 69:1-3).
9. Sin sent the angels out of heaven, our parents out of Eden, and Jesus Christ from God’s Presence.
10. Separation from God’s Presence and enduring His Holy Wrath was given to Jesus (II Thess 1:9).


యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన ఐదవ మాట:

దప్పిగొనుచున్నాను. (యోహాను 19:28)

“After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I
thirst” (John 19:28).
1. The horrible thirst of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross was prophesied (Psalm 22:15; 69:21).
2. The bodily suffering of Jesus was very real; we cannot forget His humanity and physical experiences.
1. They gave Him a spunge with vinegar on a reed to His mouth (Matthew 27:48; John 19:29).


యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన ఆరవ మాట:

సమాప్తమైనది (యోహాను 19:30)

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost” (John 19:30).
1. What was finished? The work He was sent to do was finished (Matthew 1:21; John 6:39; 17:1-3).
2. Who will require more in the work of redemption, if the Son of God declared it finished (Ro 8:33-34)?
3. Who will require further offering and perfection, if our Lord Jesus perfected us forever (He 10:10-14)?
4. If you are too simple to remember detailed arguments for the truth of salvation, remember these words.


యేసు క్రీస్తు సిలువలో పలికిన ఏడవ మాట:

తండ్రీ, నీ చేతికి నా ఆత్మను అప్పగించుకొనుచున్నాను (లూకా 23:46)

“And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having
said thus, he gave up the ghost” (Luke 23:46).
1. He laid down His life; it was not taken from Him only (John 10:18).
2. He died prematurely; there was surprise He was already dead, for crucifixion kills slowly (Mk 15:44).
3. Though forsaken in God’s consolatory comfort and fellowship, He chose to enter the veil of death with
confidence and faith in the hands of the Most High. It shall not be so severe for faithful saints.
4. Let us consider such great faith and trust in God (Matt 27:43; Hebrews 2:13 cp 11:6; Gal 2:16).

Penitential practices during Lent across Denominations

Penitential practices during Lent vary across different Christian denominations, reflecting diverse theological perspectives and traditions. Here’s an overview of how some denominations observe Lent through penitential practices:

-> Anglican/Episcopal

Anglicans and Episcopalians observe Lent with fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. They may also participate in the Stations of the Cross, a devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth. The Book of Common Prayer provides guidelines for Lent, emphasizing repentance and self-examination .

-> Eastern Orthodox

The Eastern Orthodox Church has a strict fasting regimen during Lent, abstaining from meat, dairy, and, on some days, olive oil and wine. This period is also marked by increased prayer services, such as the Liturgy of the Presanctified Gifts, and a focus on charity and almsgiving. The aim is to cleanse both body and soul in preparation for Easter .

-> Lutheran

Lutherans observe Lent with a focus on repentance and reflection on one’s baptism. While fasting is not mandated, individuals may choose to give up certain luxuries as a form of self-discipline. Lutherans also engage in additional prayer and attend services that may include the Stations of the Cross or midweek Lenten services .

-> Methodist
Methodists participate in Lent through fasting, prayer, and acts of charity. They may also make a personal sacrifice by giving up a particular food or activity. The United Methodist Church encourages the observance of Holy Communion more frequently during Lent as a means of grace to grow closer to God .

-> Roman Catholic
Catholics are required to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and abstain from eating meat on all Fridays during Lent. They are also encouraged to give up personal luxuries and perform acts of penance and charity. Confession (the Sacrament of Reconciliation) is emphasized as a way to seek God’s mercy for sins [3].

-> Reformed Churches
In Reformed traditions, including some Presbyterian and Congregationalist churches, Lent is observed with a focus on personal repentance and renewal of faith. Practices may include fasting, prayer, and reading Scripture, but there is less emphasis on formal rituals. Participation varies widely among congregations .

-> Non-denominational and Other Christian Churches
Among non-denominational and other Christian churches, Lenten observance can vary significantly. Some may adopt practices similar to those of liturgical traditions, such as fasting and almsgiving, while others may focus more on personal spiritual disciplines without formal Lenten rituals .

-> Summary
Across Christian denominations, Lent serves as a time for believers to reflect on Jesus Christ’s sacrifice, repent of sins, and prepare their hearts for the celebration of Easter. While the specific practices and the emphasis placed on them may differ, the underlying themes of repentance, prayer, and charity are common to all [2][3][4][5].

Examples of Penitential Practices during Lent

What are some examples of penitential practices during lent?

During Lent, Christians are called to deepen their spiritual life through acts of penance, reflection, and renewal in preparation for Easter. Besides fasting and prayer, there are several other penitential practices that can be embraced to foster a spirit of repentance and draw closer to God. Here are some examples:

1. Almsgiving : This involves giving to the poor and performing acts of charity. Almsgiving is a way to share God’s love with others, especially those in need, and to practice generosity as a tangible expression of faith.

2. Self-examination and Confession : Lent is a time for believers to reflect on their lives, identify areas of sin, and seek God’s forgiveness. Confession, whether in a personal prayer or through the sacrament of reconciliation, allows for the acknowledgment of sins and the receiving of God’s mercy.

3. Reading and Meditating on Scripture : Engaging with the Bible is encouraged during Lent as a means to reflect on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Scripture reading and meditation can inspire repentance and spiritual growth[1][2][4].

4. Participation in Lenten Services : Many churches offer special services during Lent, such as Stations of the Cross, which provide opportunities for communal reflection on Jesus’ suffering and sacrifice. These services can deepen the experience of repentance and preparation for Easter[1][2][4].

5. Acts of Service and Sacrifice : Volunteering, helping those in need, or making sacrifices for the benefit of others are ways to live out the call to love and serve as Jesus did. These acts can be expressions of repentance and a desire to follow Christ more closely[1][2][4].

6. Simplifying Life : Reducing distractions and focusing on spiritual matters can create more space for God in daily life. Simplifying life can lead to a more repentant and reflective Lenten experience[2].

7. Seeking Reconciliation : Making amends with those who have been wronged or forgiving those who have caused hurt embodies the reconciliation that Christ offers. This can be a profound act of repentance[2].

8. Charitable Giving : Donating to charitable causes is a practical way to express repentance by sharing with those in need and loosening the grip of materialism[2][4].

9. Environmental Stewardship : Caring for creation by adopting sustainable practices can be an act of repentance for the ways one’s lifestyle may contribute to environmental harm[2].

10. Spiritual Disciplines : Practicing other spiritual disciplines, such as silence, solitude, or journaling, can aid in self-reflection and foster a repentant heart[2].

These practices are not ends in themselves but are meant to draw believers closer to God, deepen their understanding of the gospel, and prepare them to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ with renewed faith and joy.

French (Le Credo de l’Apôtre)

Je crois en Dieu, le Père Tout-puissant, Créateur du ciel et de la terre.
Et en Jésus Christ, son Fils seul engendré, notre Seigneur ;
qui a été conçu du Saint-Esprit,
Et qui est né de la Vierge Marie.
Il a souffert sous Ponce Pilate, a été crucifié ;
Il est mort et a été enseveli ;
Il est descendu au séjour des morts.
Le troisième jour, Il est ressuscité des morts ;
Il est monté au ciel, d’où Il est assis à la droite de Dieu le Père Tout-puissant.
De là, Il viendra pour juger les vivants et les morts.
Je crois en l’Esprit Saint, à la sainte Église catholique, à la communion des saints, à la rémission des péchés, à la résurrection de la chair et à la vie éternelle. Amen.


German (Apostel Glaubensbekenntnis)

Ich glaube an Gott, den Vater, den Allmächtigen, den Schöpfer des Himmels und der Erde,
und an Jesus Christus, seinen eingeborenen Sohn, unsern Herrn,
empfangen durch den Heiligen Geist, geboren von der Jungfrau Maria,
gelitten unter Pontius Pilatus, gekreuzigt, gestorben und begraben,
hinabgestiegen in das Reich des Todes, am dritten Tage auferstanden von den Toten,
aufgefahren in den Himmel; er sitzt zur Rechten Gottes, des allmächtigen Vaters;
von dort wird er kommen, zu richten die Lebenden und die Toten.
Ich glaube an den Heiligen Geist, die heilige katholische Kirche, Gemeinschaft der Heiligen, Vergebung der Sünden, Auferstehung der Toten und das ewige Leben. Amen.



Io credo in Dio Padre onnipotente, Creatore del cielo e della terra;
e in Gesù Cristo, suo unico Figlio, nostro Signore,
il quale fu concepito di Spirito Santo, nacque da Maria Vergine,
patì sotto Ponzio Pilato, fu crocifisso, morì e fu sepolto;
discese agli inferi; il terzo giorno risuscitò da morte;
salì al cielo, siede alla destra di Dio Padre onnipotente:
di là verrà a giudicare i vivi e i morti.
Credo nello Spirito Santo, la santa Chiesa cattolica, la comunione dei santi, la remissione dei peccati, la risurrezione della carne, la vita eterna. Amen.



Creo en Dios Padre, Todopoderoso, Creador del Cielo y de la Tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo, su Único Hijo nuestro Señor,
que fue concebido por obra y gracia del Espíritu Santo, nació de Santa María Virgen.
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato.
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado.
Descendió a los infiernos.
Al tercer día, resucitó de entre los muertos.
Subió a los Cielos y está sentado a la derecha de Dios Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar a los vivos y a los muertos.
Creo en el Espíritu Santo, en la Santa Iglesia Católica, la Comunión de los Santos, el perdón de los pecados, la resurrección de la carne y la vida eterna. Amén.
