It was nine in the morning when they crucified Jesus. Those who passed by hurled insults at Him, shaking their heads and saying, ‘You said You were going destroy the temple and build it in three days. Now come down from the cross and save yourself!’ <br/>(Mark 15:25, 29-30). <br/>The Garments Divided by Cast Lots - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 1

In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked Jesus. ‘He saved others,’ they said, ‘but He can’t save himself! Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down from the cross, that we may see and believe.’ <br/>The soldiers also came up and mocked Jesus, offering Him wine vinegar.  and saying, ‘If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.’ <br/>(Mark 15:25, 29-30, Luke 23:36-37). <br/>What Our Lord Saw from the Cross - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 2

One of the criminals who hung next to Jesus hurled insults at Him: ‘Aren’t you the Messiah? Save yourself and us!’ <br/>But the other criminal rebuked him. ‘Don’t you fear God since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly for what our deeds deserve. But this Man has done nothing wrong. <br/>Then he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ <br/>Jesus replied, ‘Truly I tell you, today you will be with Me in paradise.’ <br/>(Luke 23:39-43). <br/>The Pardon of the Good Thief - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 5

It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon.. The sun stopped shining. At three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means ‘My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?’ <br/>(Mark 15:33-34, Luke 23:44-45) <br/>My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me? - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 6

Jesus said, ‘I am thirsty.’ A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips.  <br/>(John 19:28). <br/>‘I Thirst’: The Vinegar Given to Jesus - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 7

When Jesus had received the drink, He said, ‘It is finished.’ With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit. <br/>(John 19:29). <br/>The Death of Jesus - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 8

The next day was to be a special Sabbath. As the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. The soldiers broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. <br/>(John 19:31-32). <br/>The Thieves Legs Are Broken - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 9

But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs.  Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. <br/>These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: ‘Not one of his bones will be broken,’ (Exodus 12:46; Numbers 9:12; Psalm 34:20) and, as another scripture says, ‘They will look on the one they have pierced’ (Zechariah 12:10). <br/>(John 19:34-37). <br/>The Strike of the Lance - James Tissot - Brooklyn Museum. – Slide 10
