“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” – Matt. 27:46
Holy Week: Good Friday – The Crucifixion, Death, & Burial of Jesus.
This is the most brutal day in history. At 3pm, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah of Humankind, the Son of God – gave up His spirit.
“‘Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.’ Having said this, He breathed His last.” – Luke 23:46
The sun goes dark, the veil is torn, the earth quakes, the rocks split, the graves open.
“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, ‘Truly this was the Son of God!’” – Matt. 27:54
Friday’s events are recorded in Matthew 27:1-62, Mark 15:1-47, Luke 22:63-23:56, and John 18:28-19:37.
