“Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.”
King James Version (KJV)
27:50 After he had cried with a loud voice - To show that his life was still whole in him. He dismissed his spirit - So the original expression may be literally translated: an expression admirably suited to our Lord's words, #John 10:18:| No man taketh my life from me, but I lay it down of myself. He died by a voluntary act of his own, and in a way peculiar to himself. He alone of all men that ever were, could have continued alive even in the greatest tortures, as long as he pleased, or have retired from the body whenever he had thought fit. And how does it illustrate that love which he manifested in his death? Insomuch as he did not use his power to quit his body, as soon as it was fastened to the cross, leaving only an insensible corpse, to the cruelty of his murderers: but continued his abode in it, with a steady resolution, as long as it was proper. He then retired from it, with a majesty and dignity never known or to be known in any other death: dying, if one may so express it, like the Prince of life.
Mt 27:50 When he had cried again with a loud voice. "It is finished" (Joh 19:30), the sixth word from the cross. The three evangelists all dwell upon the loudness of the cry, as if it had been the triumphant note of the conqueror. The last words from the cross were those recorded in Luke, "Father, into thy hands", etc. (Lu 23:46). The first "word" in the prayer for his enemies (Lu 23:34). Yielded up the ghost. He voluntarily gave up his life for his sheep, and took it back again (Joh 10:17).
