Good Friday (Part Two.)

THE FOURTH WORD (And the Homily)

Mark 15:33-36

When it was noon, darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon. At three o'clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, "Listen, he is calling for Elijah." And someone ran, filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink, saying, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down."


THE FIFTH WORD (“Were You There” – Verse 1 ft. Chris Long and John Parker)

John 19:28-29

After this, when Jesus knew that all was now finished, he said (in order to fulfill the scripture), "I am thirsty." A jar full of sour wine was standing there. So they put a sponge full of the wine on a branch of hyssop and held it to his mouth.


THE SIXTH WORD (“Were You There” – Verse 4 ft. John Parker)

John 19:30

When Jesus had received the wine, he said, "It is finished." Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.


THE SEVENTH WORD

Luke 23:44-48

44It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45while the sun's light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." Having said this, he breathed his last. 47When the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God and said, "Certainly this man was innocent." 48And when all the crowds who had gathered there for this spectacle saw what had taken place, they returned home, beating their breasts.

The Strepitus (Signifying the closing of the tomb and the earthquake.)

The Lord’s Prayer in darkness

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name,

   thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us;

    and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.
