It Is Finished
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
The Bible teaches that the peace of God involves completeness and perfection. Sin separates us from God, causing death, because we are imperfect. Jesus’ judgment upon sin as the Prince of Peace, came by His crucifixion. His death made it so that believers are forgiven of sins, and joined to the Father by His Spirit. This union makes us whole and complete. Just before Jesus died, He said, “It is finished.” This could also be translated, “It is complete.” Jesus’ perfect judgment upon sin as the Prince of Peace, finished the work that needed to be done, which enables our perfection and wholeness with the Father through eternal life.
