Introduction

Last week we observed Christ’s unfair trial this week we are going to observe His crusifizion.
Matthew 27:45–56 CSB
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah.” 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and offered him a drink. 49 But the rest said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” 50 But Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit. 51 Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many. 54 When the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they were terrified and said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” 55 Many women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and looked after him were there, watching from a distance. 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.

The Cry of Jesus (v. 45-48)

Matthew 27:45–48 CSB
45 From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over the whole land. 46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah.” 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and offered him a drink.

The Trial, scourging, mocking, and walk to the place of crucifixion would have taken all morning.
Jesus was placed on the cross at 9:00 A.M. Now it was noon darkness covered the entire land.
In the Jewish calendar the first hour was six A.M. so this would have been the sixth hour.
The idea of the Darkness was to show Gods displeasure of the earth.
It represents divine disfavor over the rejection and death of the messiah.
Jesus hung on the cross from somewhere around 9:00 am, to midafternoon. God’s Judgement on the earth through the power of darkness was from noon to 3:00 P.M.
This is foreshadowed in
The idea of the Darkness eas to show Gods displesure of the earth. It represents divine disfavor over the rejection and death of the missiah. Jesues hung on the cross from somewhere around noon, to midafternoon. As God shows his Judgement on the earth through the power of darkness. This is forshadowed in
Amos 8:9 CSB
9 And in that day— this is the declaration of the Lord God I will make the sun go down at noon; I will darken the land in the daytime.
Am
This darkness would not have been an eclipse, as this was Passover and the settings would not have been right,
it could have been a complete set of the sun in the middle of the day, but however it happened it was clearly communicated that God was not pleased.
Matthew 27:46 CSB
46 About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out with a loud voice, Elí, Elí, lemá sabachtháni?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”
The term Jesus Cried out indicates powerful emotion or appeal to God.
This is the only time in the Gospels where Jesus addresses God without calling him father.
He states, “My God my God why hast thou forsaken me”

Hw Quotes
Psalm 22:1 CSB
1 My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far from my deliverance and from my words of groaning?
This is the moment that Christ was most fearful of. He had enjoyed deep fellowship with God but this was the consequence for becoming sin and once he has been deserted by the father there is no hope for rescue.
It was at this moment that the weight of the sin of the entire world, past, present, and future fell upon Christ
2 Corinthians 5:21 CSB
21 He made the one who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Cor
But does Christ ever turn his back on a beliver?
This sin that he bore for us involved separation form God which sin Brings
It is absolutly vitel to note here, that Jesues
This sin that he bore for us involved separation form God which sin Brings
It must be noted that having the sin of the World cast upon Christ did not result in Christ sinning!
It must be noted that having the sin of the World cast upon Christ did not result in Christ sinning!
This event is an event that the Believer will never need to endure. God will never turn His back on us, because of What Christ did for us on the cross, and His blood covers our sins
It must be noted that having the sin of the World cast upon Christ did not resault in Christ sinning!

Matthew 10:29–31 CSB
29 Aren’t two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s consent. 30 But even the hairs of your head have all been counted. 31 So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Matthew 27:47 CSB
47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling for Elijah.”
Matt 27:47
The Hebrew Word for God is Eloi and the bystanders thought that Jesus was calling for Elijah,
the fact that someone thought this indicates that they were Jews, Jews expected Elijah to appear at the end of the age and assure in a new one.
Matthew 27:48 CSB
48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge, filled it with sour wine, put it on a stick, and offered him a drink.
Matt 27
Someone gave Him a drink of wine and vinegar which was soaked into a sponge,
this drink was common and may have been provided by the soldiers, they wanted to keep those they crucified hydrated to prolong death.
Matthew 27:49 CSB
49 But the rest said, “Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.”
Matt
The idea here is that when someone went and grabbed a drink the rest said “wait, let’s see if Elijah comes to save him”

The Death of Jesus (v. 50)

Matthew 27:50 CSB
50 But Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and gave up his spirit.
Jesus cried one last time and gave up His spirit,
By the fact that He gave up His spirit we can know that even death itself is under the sovereign control of Christ.
It literally means that He dismissed his spirit by Choice. The Luke account illustrates this best when it says
Luke 23:46 CSB
46 And Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit.” Saying this, he breathed his last.
John 19:13 ESV
13 So when Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Stone Pavement, and in Aramaic Gabbatha.
He did not just simply die he entrusted His spirit to God
in John, the account clearly states what his death accomplished
in John the account clearly states what his death acomplished
John 19:30 CSB
30 When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished.” Then bowing his head, he gave up his spirit.
He finished What he came to do!
He finsished What he came to do!

The responce of the Death (v. 51-56)
Matthew 27:51–56 CSB
51 Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split. 52 The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many. 54 When the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they were terrified and said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” 55 Many women who had followed Jesus from Galilee and looked after him were there, watching from a distance. 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.
Matthew 27:51 CSB
51 Suddenly, the curtain of the sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom, the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.
The moment that Christ died the earth shook with a mighty earthquake and the Curtin of the temple was towarn in two.
The temple Curtin
The temple Curtin set the holy place off from the most holy place which only the high priest could go once a year, on the day of atonement.
He took with him blood from the sacrifice for His own sins and for the sins of the people. and it was God’s presence among his people.
Now this sixty foot Curtin was torn open from God’s side showing that now all could enter into the presence of God. It was think and woven of seventy-two twisted plaits, each of which had twenty-four threads. it was sixty feet long and thirty feet wide,
two were made each year and it required three hundred priests to manipulate it.
Matthew used the earthquake to show the Mighty power of God. Death itself is being conquered and a new age of eternal life is beginning and now unrestricted access to God is available.

In the Old testament, an earthquake symbolized God’s mighty acts. The purpose was to show more than just God’s power, but also to open the graves.

Matthew 27:52–53 CSB
52 The tombs were also opened and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised. 53 And they came out of the tombs after his resurrection, entered the holy city, and appeared to many.
-
Many of the Old testament saints were raised from their graves,
the purpose was a foreshadowing of the resurrection of Christ.
The reason for them appearing to many would have been so that there would have been undoubetable evidence of thier resurrection, and then their Lords.
Matthew 27:54 CSB
54 When the centurion and those with him, who were keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they were terrified and said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!”
The Centurion and those under his command were now terrified, they had herd the Jews mock Jesus as the son of God, but they were convinced now that he actually was.
This conclusion of the centurion seems to base itself off of the events he had seen
