Paint Party Friday: I Thirst!

I completely forgot about making a post 
and joining blog parties yesterday
as it was Good Friday.
Not exactly the best time for partying!

I read the 18th chapter of John,
where Jesus was crucified.
When Jesus said, "I am thirsty", He was given
a sponge soaked in common wine,
and they lifted this up to him using a hyssop branch.
I read this from the Blue Letter Bible:

Remember that these events occurred at the 
Feast of the Passover. 
During this feast, (Exod 12:22
hyssop was used to apply the 
blood of the Passover lamb 
to the wooden doorposts of the Jews. 

It is interesting that the end of this hyssop stalk 
pointed to the blood of the Perfect Lamb 
which was applied to the wooden cross 
for the salvation of all mankind. (Barclay) 
In addition, the wine vinegar 
is a product of fermentation, 
which is made from grape juice and yeast. 
The word literally means "that which is soured" 
and is related to the Hebrew term 
for "that which is leavened". (Holmans) 
Yeast or leaven, is a Biblical symbol of sin. 
When Jesus took this drink, 
(i.e. a drink which was "leavened"
it is thus symbolic of 
His taking the sins of the world into His body.

On Holy Thursday, we remembered the time that
Jesus washed the feet of His disciples.
Jesus is the perfect servant.
He not only served the disciples by
going down on His knees
to wash their feet,
but He also cleansed them,
and us,
of our sins!
