John 19:28-29“After this, Jesus knew that everything had been completed. So that the Scripture would come true, he said, ‘I am thirsty.’   There was a jar full of vinegar there, so the soldiers soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a branch of a hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ mouth.”  Why did Jesus say, “I’m thirsty?”  The obvious answer is that he was physically thirsty. Jesus has experienced enormous pain leading up to, and including the crucifixion.  Yet during all that he went through he never said a word about his own personal pain or desires.  But now he says, “I’m thirsty”.  He’s obviously thirsty, so, yes, there’s a physical reason.  But Pastor Barry reveals there is also a theological reason. This phrase communicates prophetic truth and truth about Jesus’ identity.
