Jesus Died on the Cross

Matthew 27:45-56, Mark 15:33-41, Luke 23:44-49 and John 19:28-37

Matthew 27:45-49 

There was darkness over all the land from the sixth hour to the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice.

Jesus: Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? 

(that is to say, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?) 

Some of them who stood there heard Jesus speak.

Those who heard: This man calls for Elijah. 

One of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. 

The rest: Let be, let us see whether Elijah will come to save him. 

John 19:28-30 

Jesus knew that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled. 

Jesus: I thirst. 

Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 

Jesus received the vinegar. 

Jesus: It is finished.

Luke 23:46 

Jesus cried with a loud voice. 

Jesus: Father, into your hands I commend my spirit. 

Having said this, Jesus (“bowed his head, and” – John) gave up the ghost. 

Matthew 27:51-54

And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose and came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. 

When the centurion (which stood over against him), and they who were with him watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly.

Centurion and those with him: Truly this was the Son of God.

Luke says “Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.”

Luke 23:48-49 

And all the people who came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned. 

And all his acquaintance, and the women who followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things. 

Mark 15:40-41 

Among the women was Mary Magdalene, (“and the mother of Zebedee’s children” – Matthew) and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; (Who also, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and ministered to him;) and many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem. 

John 19:31-37 

The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 

Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they did not break his legs.

But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and blood and water came out. And he that saw it bares record, and his record is true: and he knows that he speaks true, that you might believe. For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken. (Psalm 34:20) And again another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they pierced. (Zechariah 12:10)
