The Death of Jesus

Matthew 27

45 p Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour q Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, r "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" 1 47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, "This Man is calling for Elijah!" 48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, s filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink. 49 The rest said, "Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him." 50 And Jesus t cried out again with a loud voice, and u yielded up His spirit.

51 Then, behold, v the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. 54 w So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, x "Truly this was the Son of God!"

55 And many women y who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there looking on from afar, 56 z among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and 2 Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons.
