Matthew 27:45-50

45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eli, Eli,[c] lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).[d]

47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.”

48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49 The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”

50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.

One response to “Matthew 27:45-50

  1. The darkness came when my sin was placed on Him and the Father had to turn from Him. My sin….

    It was not the pain and humiliation that He suffered that made Him cry out, it was the Father having to turn from Him. Is the presence of the Father and His Spirit that crucial to my existence.

    He surrendered His own Spirit. He surrendered to death and to the will of the Father because of His love for us and His obedience to the Father’s plan.
