Luke 23:44-49

Jesus’ death

44 It was now about noon, and darkness covered the whole earth until about three o'clock,
45 while the sun stopped shining. Then the curtain in the sanctuary tore down the middle.
46 Crying out in a loud voice, Jesus said, " Father, into your hands I entrust my life." After he said this, he breathed for the last time.
47 When the centurion saw what happened, he praised God, saying, "It's really true: this man was righteous."
48 All the crowds who had come together to see this event returned to their homes beating their chests after seeing what had happened.
49 And everyone who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance observing these things.
