Matthew Henry's Complete Commentary - Luke 23:44-49

In these verses we have three things:? I. Christ's dying magnified by the prodigies that attended it: only two are here mentioned, which we had an account of before. 1. The darkening of the sun at noon-day. It was now about the sixth hour, that is, according to our computation, twelve o?clock at noon; and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. The sun was eclipsed and the air exceedingly clouded at the same time, both which concurred to this thick darkness, which... read more

William Barclay's Daily Study Bible - Luke 23:44-49

23:44-49 By this time it was about midday, and there was darkness over the whole land until 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and the light of the sun failed. And the veil of the Temple was rent in the midst. When Jesus had cried with a great voice, he said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." When he had said this he breathed his last. When the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God. "Truly," he said, "this was a good man." All the crowds, who had come together to see the... read more

Adam Clarke's Commentary on the Bible - Luke 23:46

Into thy hands I commend my spirit - Or, I will commit my spirit - I deposit my soul in thy hands. Another proof of the immateriality of the soul, and of its separate existence when the body is dead. read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 23:26-46

The merciful Savior on the cross. Delivered unto the will of the Jews by the indecision of Pilate, Jesus accepts the cross, and proceeds under its crushing weight towards Calvary. But seeing him fainting under it, they press Simon the Cyrenian into service, and he has the everlasting honor of carrying the end of the beam after Jesus. Thus is it in all life's burdens—the weighty end of them is carried by the sympathetic Master, while the lighter end he allows his people to carry after him.... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 23:46

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said. This is better rendered, and Jesus cried with a loud voice and said. The cry with the loud voice is the solemn dismissal of his spirit when he commended it to his Father. The object of the receiving the refreshment of the vinegar—the sour wine ( John 19:30 )—was that his natural forces, weakened by the long suffering, should be restored sufficiently for him to render audible the last two sayings—the "It is finished!" of St. John,... read more

The Pulpit Commentary - Luke 23:46

How to die and to live. Our text treats of the dying of our Lord. We may distinguish between death and dying. All men die, but all men have not a dying experience. Those who are killed instantaneously in war or by accident, those who are attacked by fatal apoplexy, those who die in their sleep, have no such experience. It is probable that we shall have to face the fact that we are passing away from life, that when a few more hours have come and gone we shall have entered the unseen... read more

Joseph Benson's Commentary of the Old and New Testaments - Luke 23:46-49

Luke 23:46-49 . Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit The Father receives the spirit of Jesus; Jesus himself the spirits of the faithful. See on Matthew 27:50. When the centurion The Roman officer, who stood over against him and guarded the execution; saw what was done In so miraculous a manner, in those amazing prodigies that attended Christ’s death; he glorified God By a free confession of his persuasion of the innocence of Jesus; saying, Certainly this was a righteous man ... read more
