DAILY READINGS: Deut. 14:22-15:23; Song of Sol. 5:2-6:9; Luke 10:25-42

He hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12
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

The darkness was lifting. Jesus had poured out his soul unto death, and sin’s price had been paid. The last drop of crimson blood was shed. The Victor’s shout carried across the Kidron, and echoed off the massive city wall, “It is finished.” He, thank God, had borne the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors, including you and me. —Arnot P. McIntee

There is a green hill far away, with-out a city wall,
Where God’s dear Son was crucified, who died to save us all. —Cecil Frances Alexander
