Death of Jesus and
Interwoven Gospels

It was now about the sixth hour. And when the sixth hour came, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour, the sun failing to give light. And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which is, being interpreted, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"

And some of those standing there, when \ they heard it, said, "Behold, this Man called Elijah." After this, Jesus, knowing that all things have now been finished, that the scripture might be completely fulfilled, saith, "I thirst." There was set there a vessel full of vinegar: and immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar and put it on a hyssop reed, and gave Him to drink. But the rest said, "Let Him alone! Let us see if Elijah is coming to save Him." When Jesus, therefore, received the vinegar, He cried again with a loud voice and said, "It is finished: Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit." And having said this, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.

And behold, the veil of the temple was rent into two parts, from top to bottom. And the earth quaked, and the rocks were rent, and the tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and going forth out of the tombs after His resurrection, they entered into the holy city and appeared to many.

Now the centurion who stood near, opposite Him, and they that were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw that He thus died, and the earthquake and the things that took place, feared exceedingly, saying, "Truly this was the Son of God." And the centurion glorified God, saying, "Certainly this Man was righteous!" And all the multitude that came together to this sight, having seen the things that took place, returned beating their breasts.

And all those who knew Him, and many women who followed Him from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there seeing these things from afar: among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and Joses, and Salome the mother of the sons of Zebedee, who, when He was in Galilee, followed Him and ministered to Him; and many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
