“It is finished” Why did Jesus make these words His dying declaration?

Jesus died on a Roman Cross subsequent to declaring “It is finished” (John 19:30). What did Jesus finish?Jesus completed His primary mission having entered the Realm of Time to “destroy the works of the Devil” (1 John 3:8b); that is, death, Hell, the grave, for everyone who believes in Him as Lord. Second, Jesus reconciled mankind back to God, a reconciliation by faith in Messiah Jesus as Lord; a reconciliation as the Last-Adam, Jesus Christ, paid the sin-debt of the First-Adam manifesting from disobedience in Eden four-thousand-years earlier (1 Corinthians 15:45-49). Paradise lost in Genesis would be Paradise restored by God, Himself, through selfless love as first demonstrated in Genesis 3:21 i.e. the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
