John 19:28-30

Jesus dies

28 After this, Jesus knew that everything was now finished. Then he said, ‘I am thirsty.’ He said this so that things would happen in the way the Bible already said. 29 There was a pot full of cheap wine there. So someone put a piece of cloth into the wine. They fixed the cloth to the end of a branch. The branch was from a plant called hyssop. Then they lifted the cloth up to Jesus' mouth. 30 Jesus drank the wine. Then he said, ‘Everything is finished.’ He bent his head down and he let his spirit go.

19:28See Psalm 22:15. Psalm 22 describes the time when Jesus was hanging on the cross. It describes how Jesus would feel then. God had already told his people everything that would happen to Jesus.
