Afterwards, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said: I thirst.
Now there was a vessel set there, full of vinegar. And they, putting a sponge full of vinegar about hyssop, put it to his mouth.
Jesus therefore, when he had taken the vinegar, said: It is consummated. And bowing his head, he gave up the ghost.
Then the Jews (because it was the parasceve), that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day (for that was a great sabbath day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken: and that they might be taken away.
The soldiers therefore came: and they broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him.
But after they were come to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.
But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side: and immediately there came out blood and water.
And he that saw it hath given testimony: and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true: that you also may believe.
For these things were done that the scripture might be fulfilled: You shall not break a bone of him.
And again another scripture saith: They shall look on him whom they pierced.
And after these things, Joseph of Arimathea (because he was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews), besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus. And Pilate gave leave. He came therefore and took away the body of Jesus.
And Nicodemus also came (he who at the first came to Jesus by night), bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.
They took therefore the body of Jesus and bound it in linen cloths, with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
Now there was in the place where he was crucified a garden: and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein no man yet had been laid.
There, therefore, because of the parasceve of the Jews, they laid Jesus: because the sepulchre was nigh at hand.
