James Jacques Tissot (French painter and illustrator, 1836-1902), "The Death of Jesus (La mort de JÚsus)" (1884-1896), Opaque watercolor over graphite on gray wove paper, 
24.3 x 18.4 cm, Brooklyn Museum, New York, NY.
Mark 15:33-39  (NIV)

33 At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?"--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, "Listen, he's calling Elijah."

36 One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to take him down," he said.

37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, "Surely this man was the Son of God!"

John 19:30 (NIV)

"When he had received the drink, Jesus said, 'It is finished.' With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit."

Luke 23:46 (NIV)

"Jesus called out with a loud voice, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.' When he had said this, he breathed his last."
