After this Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I thirst."
Now there was set there a vessel full of vinegar; and they filled a sponge with vinegar and put it upon hyssop, and put it to His mouth.
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, "It is finished." And He bowed His head and gave up the ghost.
The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, and so that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day (for that Sabbath day was a high day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken and that they might be taken away.
Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him.
But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was dead already, they broke not His legs,
but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side, and forthwith there came out blood and water.
And he that saw it bore record, and his record is true, and he knoweth that he saith truly, that ye might believe.
For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled: "A bone of Him shall not be broken."
And again another Scripture saith, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."
And after this, Joseph of Arimathea, being 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 him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus.
And there came also Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds in weight.
Then took they the body of Jesus and wound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the manner of the Jews for burial.
Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher wherein was never man yet laid.
There they laid Jesus therefore because of the Jews' Preparation Day, for the sepulcher was nigh at hand.
