28 After this, Jesus knew that everything had been done. To make the Scripture come true, he said, “I am thirsty.”[a] 29 There was a jar full of vinegar there, so the soldiers soaked a sponge in it. Then they put the sponge on a branch of a hyssop plant and lifted it to Jesus’ mouth. 30 Jesus tasted the vinegar. Then he said, “It is finished.” He bowed his head and died.
31 This day was Preparation Day. The next day was a special Sabbath day. The Jews did not want the bodies to stay on the cross on the Sabbath day. So they asked Pilate to order that the legs of the men be broken[b] and the bodies be taken away. 32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man on the cross beside Jesus. Then they broke the legs of the man on the other cross beside Jesus. 33 But when the soldiers came to Jesus, they saw that he was already dead. So they did not break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers stuck his spear into Jesus’ side. At once blood and water came out. 35 (The one who saw this happen has told about it. The things he says are true. He knows that he tells the truth. He told about it so that you also can believe.) 36 These things happened to make the Scripture come true: “Not one of his bones will be broken.”[c] 37 And another Scripture said, “They will look at the one they have stabbed.”[d]
