We have come to final part of the series of “Watching Jesus die”. Today we are paying our attention to verses 45-54. Lets allow the Holy Spirit to speak to our hearts.

A. Jesus forsaken by the heavenly Father
I. A heaven sent darkness that lasted for 3 hours. A sign of divine judgment.
II. There were three days of darkness in Egypt before the Passover (Exodus 20:21-23)
