Jesus’ Death

15:33 Now 1  when it was noon, 2  darkness came over the whole land 3  until three in the afternoon. 4  15:34 Around three o’clock 5  Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? 6  15:35 When some of the bystanders heard it they said, “Listen, he is calling for Elijah! 7  15:36 Then someone ran, filled a sponge with sour wine, 8  put it on a stick, 9  and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Leave him alone! Let’s see if Elijah will come to take him down! 15:37 But Jesus cried out with a loud voice and breathed his last. 15:38 And the temple curtain 10  was torn in two, from top to bottom. 15:39 Now when the centurion, 11  who stood in front of him, saw how he died, 12  he said, “Truly this man was God’s Son! 15:40 There were also women, watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, 13  and Salome. 15:41 When he was in Galilee, they had followed him and given him support. 14  Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem 15  were there too.
