Matthew 27:45-50 – Jesus Expires During a Darkness

|| Mark 15:33-37; Luke 23:44-46

MT27:45 Now from high noon a darkness occurred over the land[1] until three o’clock. MT27:46 About three in the afternoon Jesus screamed in a loud voice, “Eli, eli, lama sabachthani?”[2] (or, “‘My God, my God, why have You abandoned me?’[3]) [Psalm 22:1] MT27:47 But some of those standing around thought Jesus was calling for Elijah. MT27:48 And immediately one in the crowd ran and placed a sponge filled with sour wine on a stick and offered it to Jesus to drink. MT27:49 The rest of the crowd said, “Leave him alone! Let us see if Elijah comes to save him!” Another took a spear and pierced[4] Jesus in his side and then blood and water discharged. MT27:50 Now after Jesus again cried out with a loud voice he gave up the pneuma.[5]

*

[1] Darkness occurred over the land: PME: darkness spread over the whole countryside.

[2] Eli, eli, lama sabachthani: A Hebrew (Aramaic) phrase from Psalm 22:1. This near-death outburst seems to indicate the language Jesus normally spoke, Hebrew (Aramaic).

[3] My God, my God, why have You abandoned me: Near the moment of his death the Nazarene quotes Psalm 22:1 in his outcry. Jesus thus applies Psalm 22 to himself. Read and meditate on this Psalm which seems to describe 1,000 years before Christ a man dying on a stake. Note Psalm 22:16 (Septuagint), “They pierced my hands and feet.”

[4] Another took a spear and pierced: John 19:34 adds, “… one of the soldiers jabbed his side with a spear.” Compare Isaiah 53:5 and Zechariah 12:10 (Revelation 1:7).

[5] He gave up the pneuma: Or, KJV: yielded up the ghost; PME: and died; MOF: gave up his spirit; RIEU: yielded up his life; NEB: breathed his last; BER: dismissed his spirit. The literal meaning of PNEUMA is breath or wind.
