Good Friday - The Third Hour

Good Friday

And it was the third hour, when they crucified him.” (Mark 15:25)

And when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Elo-I, Elo-I, lama sabach-thani?”” (Mark 15:33-34)

 “And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed his last. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom.” (Mark 15:37-38)

The Navarre Bible commentary regarding Mark 15:25-38: “At the third hour, that is, between nine o’clock and noon, Jesus was raised on the cross; at the sixth hour, between noon and three, the whole land was covered in darkness; and at the ninth hour, between three and six in the afternoon, Jesus died.”
