"What were Jesus’ last words?" (Alleged Contradiction #E9592)
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him. Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
The order of events, putting these three passages together:
- Jesus said, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachtani?”
- They gave Him vinegar
- Jesus said, “It is finished”
- With a loud voice, Jesus said, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit”
- He bowed His head and gave up the ghost
