Jesus Christ Dies On The Cross

text size A A A

Matthew 27:45-56

Now from The Sixth Hour until The Ninth Hour, there was Darkness over All The Land. And about The Ninth Hour, Jesus (Jesus Christ) Cried Out with a Loud Voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God (God Almighty), My God, why have YOU Forsaken Me?” Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is Calling for Elijah!” Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him (Jesus Christ) to drink. The rest said, “Let Him (Jesus Christ) alone; let us see if Elijah will come to Save Him (Jesus Christ).” And Jesus (Jesus Christ) Cried Out again with a Loud Voice, and Yielded Up His (Jesus Christ’s) Spirit. Then, behold, The Veil of The Temple was Torn in Two, from Top to Bottom; and the Earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and The Graves were Opened; and Many Bodies of The Saints (Believers), who had Fallen Asleep were Raised; and Coming Out of The Graves, after His (Jesus Christ’s) Resurrection, They (The Resurrected Saints/Believers) went into The Holy City and Appeared to MANY. So when The Centurion AND those with him (The Centurion), who were Guarding Jesus (Jesus Christ), saw the Earthquake and The Things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was The Son of God (God Almighty)!” And many women who followed Jesus (Jesus Christ) from Galilee, Ministering to Him (Jesus Christ), were there looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary, The Mother of James and Joses, and The Mother of Zebedee’s Sons.

Mark 15:33-41

Now when The Sixth Hour had come, there was Darkness over The Whole Land until The Ninth Hour. And at The Ninth Hour Jesus (Jesus Christ) Cried Out with a Loud Voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God (God Almighty), My God, why have YOU Forsaken Me?” Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, “Look, He (Jesus Christ) is Calling for Elijah!” Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and offered it to Him (Jesus Christ) to drink, saying, “Let Him (Jesus Christ) alone; let us see if Elijah will come to take Him (Jesus Christ) Down.” And Jesus (Jesus Christ) Cried Out with a Loud Voice, and Breathed His (Jesus Christ’s) Last. Then The Veil of The Temple was Torn in Two, from Top to Bottom. So when The Centurion, who stood opposite Him (Jesus Christ), saw that He (Jesus Christ) Cried Out like this and Breathed His (Jesus Christ’s) Last, he (The Centurion) said, “Truly this Man (Jesus Christ) was The Son of God (God Almighty)!” There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary, The Mother of James, The Less, and of Joses, and Salome, who also followed Him (Jesus Christ) and Ministered to Him (Jesus Christ) when He (Jesus Christ) was in Galilee, and many other women who came up with Him (Jesus Christ) to Jerusalem.

Luke 23:44-49

Now it was about The Sixth Hour, and there was Darkness over All the Earth, until The Ninth Hour. Then the Sun was Darkened, and The Veil of The Temple was Torn in Two. And when Jesus (Jesus Christ) had Cried Out with a Loud Voice, He (Jesus Christ) said, “Father (God Almighty), ‘into Your (God Almighty’s) Hands, I (Jesus Christ) Commit My (Jesus Christ’s) Spirit.’” Having said this, He (Jesus Christ) Breathed His (Jesus Christ’s) Last. So when The Centurion saw what had happened, He (The Centurion) Glorified God (God Almighty), saying, “Certainly this was a Righteous Man (Jesus Christ)!” And the whole crowd who came together to that sight, seeing what had been done, beat their breasts and returned. But All His (Jesus Christ’s) Acquaintances, and the women who followed Him (Jesus Christ) from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching These Things.

John 19:28-37

After this, Jesus (Jesus Christ), KNOWING that All Things were now Accomplished, that The Scripture might be Fulfilled, said, “I (Jesus Christ) thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His (Jesus Christ’s) Mouth. So when Jesus (Jesus Christ) had received the sour wine, He (Jesus Christ) said, “It is FINISHED!” And Bowing His (Jesus Christ’s) Head, He (Jesus Christ) Gave Up His (Jesus Christ’s) Spirit. Therefore, because it was The Preparation Day, that the bodies should NOT remain on The Cross on The Sabbath (for That Sabbath was a High Day), The Jews asked 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 (Jesus Christ). But when they came to Jesus (Jesus Christ) and saw that He (Jesus Christ) was already dead, they did NOT break His (Jesus Christ’s) Legs. But one of the soldiers Pierced His (Jesus Christ’s) Side with a spear, and immediately Blood and Water came out. And He (John) who has seen has Testified, and His (John’s) Testimony is True; and He (John) KNOWS that He (John) is Telling The Truth, so that YOU (Believers) may BELIEVE. For These Things were done that The Scripture should be Fulfilled, “NOT One of His (Jesus Christ’s) Bones shall be broken.” And again another Scripture says, “They shall look on Him (Jesus Christ) whom they pierced.”

Fellow Believers, a few notes, first of all, did YOU (Believers) know, that “The Veil” was 60 feet in length and 4 inches thick, so for it to be torn in two, from top to bottom, was an amazing feat of its own. Secondly, there was an Earthquake, strong enough to split rocks. Thirdly, did YOU (Believers) notice The Resurrection of The Saints (Believers), at the time of Jesus’ Death, and after His (Jesus Christ’s) Resurrection, They (The Resurrected Saints/Believers) went into The Holy City and Appeared to MANY? Finally, even an UNBELIEVER, The Roman Centurion, came to Believe, that Jesus Christ IS The Son of God Almighty! So, even before Jesus Christ’s Resurrection, upon His (Jesus Christ’s) Death, at least one person (The Roman Centurion) Believed Jesus Christ IS The Son of God Almighty! These occurrences are sometimes overlooked, when We (Believers) think about Jesus Christ’s Crucifixion and His (Jesus Christ’s) Resurrection, because We (Believers) concentrate on Him (Jesus Christ) being Raised from The Tomb (The Grave), Alive. I guess, it just goes to show Us (Believers), that We (Believers) can always learn more, when We (Believers) pay more attention to The Details. Amen.
