Last Words: Seven Sayings From the Heart of Christ on the Cross
9 in stock
Jesus's words in Scripture capture who he was and what he was about. His last words on the cross, over two thousand years ago, offer gospel hope for our spiritual journeys today.
In this powerful, moving book, author Robert J. Nash explores a fresh perspective on a familiar event, guiding readers into the forgiveness, hope, comfort, and compassion of Christ's words in his final moments on earth.
While pivoting history, Jesus graciously offers encouragement for Christians today and hope for seekers looking for significance in his death. In this glimpse into the heart of Jesus, Nash helps us find historical truths about Jesus's love for the church in his death and resurrection.
Last Words includes a reflection section for small groups and a devotional prayer at the end of each chapter to help readers relate to God. For easy reference, there is a Scripture index in the back of the book.
Come and ponder the wisdom of Christ and see for yourself a new view of the cross.
“Robert J. Nash’s exposition of the last words of Jesus is faithfully and vividly presented, drawing from the other passages of Scripture in order to show their theological implications. These gospel-saturated truths are then helpfully applied to the reader, who is encouraged not only to apply the truth personally but also to share it with others. I heartily recommend this book.”
Jim Newheiser, Director of the Christian Counseling Program and Associate Professor of Practical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Charlotte, NC
“This book reads with the immediacy and richness of a film. The seven phrases Jesus gasps out on the cross serve as touch-points for Nash to explore layered flashbacks to Old Testament rituals, Hebrew prophecies, and the Gospel stories. But the real beauty of Nash’s method is this: he personalizes each phrase right down into the nitty-gritty of the reader’s present life. While this book is short enough to read in a single sitting as I did, it is full enough to provide seven weekly meditative chapters leading up to Easter, which is how I intend to read it next!”

“Other than the Bible itself, Last Words is the most insightful, interesting, compelling, and profound book I’ve ever read about the cross. As I pondered this in-depth exploration of the last statements of Christ, my mind was challenged, my heart was warmed, and my faith was strengthened. Rob Nash has written a biblically precise masterpiece—one that not only brings forth a more thoughtful, thorough understanding of the redemptive work of Jesus, but also encourages God’s pattern for Christian living.”
