When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit. (ASV)
Edit this section to note miscellaneous facts.
"Both Matthew and Mark tell us that Jesus said, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" after which he is offered sour wine and then cries out before dying. So, in response to the question, “What did Jesus say?”, we conclude that Jesus said, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” after which he cries out.
The issue seems to concern that which Jesus said after being offered the sour wine. John tells us that, after receiving the sour wine, Jesus said, “It is finished.” Luke adds that Jesus then says, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” and having said this, he died.
Consequently, we have this sequence of events and the words of Jesus.
1. Jesus says, “"Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?"
2. This prompts a person to offer Jesus sour wine whereupon he says, “It is finished.”
3. Now, in preparation for death, Jesus says, “Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit,” and He then dies."
See Mark 15:34.
