|Top Previous Next|
Dec 7 14.5 It was now about noon and darkness occurred over the land until three o’clock in the afternoon.
Jesus shouted, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani?” Meaning “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?” Some nearby said, “He is calling Elijah.”
Jesus knowing all was completed to fulfill scripture, said, “I thirst.” Someone ran, soaked a sponge in vinegar, put it on a hyssop branch and lifted it to his lips saying, “Let’s see whether Elijah will save him?”
After receiving it, Jesus said, “It is finished!”
Finally Jesus shouted, “Father, into Your hands I commit my spirit.” Then he gave up the spirit.
