  • τετέλεσται (Greek) te-tel-es-tai Literally translated the word tetelestai means, “It is finished.” The word tetelestai was also written on business documents or receipts in New Testament times to show indicating that a bill had been paid in full. The Greek-English lexicon by Moulton and Milligan says this: “Receipts are often introduced by the phrase [sic] tetelestai, usually written in an abbreviated manner...” (p. 630).   The connection between receipts and what Christ accomplished would have been quite clear to John’s Greek-speaking readership; it would be unmistakable that Jesus Christ had died to pay for their sins.

  • National "Back To Church Sunday" - Sept. 12, 2010 What would happen if every member of your church invited just one person to attend a Sunday service with them? How many people do you know who “used to go” to church, but just don’t anymore? If you are like most Americans, you know quite a few. Statistics show that only 2% of Christians invite someone to attend church with them in any given year. Please invite your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to come to church with you on Sunday, September 12th. If you attend Cypress Church invitations will be available in the Lobby beginning in mid-August.
