There Was Darkness

Now from about the sixth hour, there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.

Matthew 27:45; Mark 15:33; Luke 23:44

Eli, Eli, Lama Sabachthani

And at about the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is to say, being interpreted, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”

And some of them that stood by there, when they heard that, said, “Behold, this man calleth for Elias.”

After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, “I thirst.”

Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar, and straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and put it to his mouth, and gave him to drink.

The rest said, “Let alone. Let us see whether Elias will come to take him down and save him.

Matt. 27:45–49; Mark 15:33–36; Luke 23:45a; John 19:28–29; Psalms 22:1;69:21

It Is Finished

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, “It is finished.”

And when Jesus had cried again with a loud voice, he said, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit.” And having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Matt. 27:50–51; Mark 15:37–38; Luke 23:45b–46; John 19:30
