The fourth of Jesus’ seven last words on the cross:

After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst,” (John 19:28, ESV).

Here we see Jesus’ humanity.  He suffered and experienced all of the pain and hardship that anyone of us would have suffered if we were in His place.  He didn’t take any shortcuts.  His pain wasn’t eased.  God who created the water was denied the water he desired to quench his thirst.
