After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
Traditionally known as “The Word of Distress”, this action marks the fulfillment of the prophetic word of King David…
They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
Jesus was thirsty, but not merely for a drink. He is thirsty for all of us. Thirsty for you and me. Jesus is calling us to Him, desiring our souls. As man desires water, Jesus desires us.
