John 19:17-30 (msg)
          Carrying His cross, Jesus went out to the place called Skull Hill (the name in Hebrew is Golgotha), where they crucified Him, and with Him two others, one on each side, Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a sign and had it placed on the cross. It read:

                                        JESUS THE NAZARENE
                                        THE KING OF THE JEWS

Many of the Jews read the sign because the place where Jesus was crucified was right next to the city. It was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. The Jewish high priests objected. "Don't Write," they said to Pilate, "The King of the Jews." Make it, "This man said, "I am the King of the Jews"." Pilate said, What I've written, I've written." When they crucified Him, the Roman soldiers took His clothes and divided them up four ways, to each soldier a fourth. But His robe was seamless, a single piece of weaving, so they said to each other, "Let's not tear it up, Let's throw dice to see who gets it." This confirmed the Scripture that said, "They divided up My clothes among them and threw dice for my coat." (The soldiers validated the Scriptures!) While the soldiers were looking after themselves, Jesus mother, His aunt, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene stood at the foot of the cross. Jesus saw His mother and the disciple He loved standing near her. He said to His mother, "Woman, here is your son." Then to the disciple, "Here is your mother." From that moment the disciple accepted her as his own mother. Jesus seeing that everything had been completed so that the Scripture record might also be complete, then said, "I'm thirsty." A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with wine on a javelin and lifted it up to His mouth. After He took the wine, Jesus said, "It's done...complete." Bowing His head he offered up His spirit.

Jesus redemption is completely complete. You can't add to it. You can't subtract from it. It doesn't need something else. Jesus made a perfect redemption for men. His blood was shed. He not only paid the total sum of human sin, He nailed it to the tree. The debt is paid in full.

"You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away.  Then God made you alive with Christ, for He forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross." Colossians 2:13-14

Hallelujah!! My sins are nailed to His cross. That's what Jesus did!
