Mat. 27:26 (LIT/UBS4) Then (tote) he sent away (apelusen) to them (autois) the (ton) Barabbas (Barabban).


But (de) the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun), he having been whipped (phragellōsas), [Pilate, v24, RE] passed aside (paredōken) [the Jesus, RE] in order that (hina) he may be staked (staurōthē).

(For what is God’s prophesied true “tent”, his new holy place under his new covenant, the prophesied promise of the Father to place himself into believers to live in them as his new permanent domicile, a true “tent” not built with mortal’s hands but with his own hand, see Ex. 15:17; 2 Sam. 7:5-16; Isa. 8:14; Ezek. 11:16; Joel 2:28-29; Amos 9:11-12; Mat. 3:11, 16:18, 26:61, 27:39-40; Mark 14:58, 15:29; Luke 3:21-22, 24:49; *John 2:19-22, 3:1-, 4:20-24, 7:37-39, 14:2, *23; Acts 1:4-5, 2:16-18, 33, 38-39, *7:44-50, *15:16-18, *17:24, *20:28; *Rom. 8:9-11, 12:4-5; 1 Cor. *3:16-17, *6:19-20, 10:16-17, 12:12-28; *2 Cor. 5:1, *6:16-18; Gal. 3:14, 22; Eph. 1:13-14, 22-23, *2:17-22, 3:6, 4:11-16, 5:30-32; Col. 1:18-27, 2:6-10, 3:15; *1 Thes. 5:9-11; *1 Tim. 3:15; *2 Tim. 1:14; Heb. *3:4-6, 8:2, *9:11-15, *24, 10:21, 36; 1 Pet. 2:4-5; 1 John 4:12-16; Rev. 3:12, 7:15, 11:19, *13:6, *21:3, 22)


If (ei) you are (ei) [a/the] son (huios) of the (tou) God (theou), step down (katabēthi) from (apo) the (tou) stake (staurou)!”


Mat. 27:41 (LIT/UBS4) Likewise (homoiōs) the (hoi) chief sacrificial priests (archiereis) also (kai) putting [[the] Jesus, v37, RE] in [a] child’s role (empaizontes), with (meta) the (tōn) writers (grammateōn) and (kai) elders (presbuterōn), were saying (elegon),


Mat. 27:42 (LIT/UBS4) “He made others whole (allous esōsen)!


Can he absolutely not inherently power (ou dunatai) himself (heauton) to keep [himself, RE] whole (sōsai)!?


He is (estin) king (basileus) of Israel (Israēl)!?


Let him step down (katabatō) now (nun) from (apo) the (tou) stake (staurou), and (kai) we shall believe (pisteusomen) upon (ep’) him (auton)!


Mat. 27:43 (LIT/UBS4) He has been persuaded (pepoithen) in (en) the (ton) God (theon).


Now (nun) let [the God, v42, RE] cause himself to rescue (rhusasthō) [him, RE] if (ei) he desires (thelei) him (auton)!


Because (gar) he enunciated (eipen) that (hoti), “I am (eimi) [a/the] son (huios) of God (theou)!’”


Mat. 27:44 (LIT/UBS4) But (d’) the (hoi) robbers (lēstai) also (kai), the ones (hoi) having been staked together (sustaurōthentes) with (sun) him (autō), [were saying, v41, RE] the (to) same thing (auto).


Mat. 27:45 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) from (apo) [the] sixth (hektēs) hour (hōras) darkness (skotos) caused itself to become (egeneto) over (epi) all (pasan) of the (tēn) land (gēn) until (heōs) [the] ninth (enatēs) hour (hōras).


Mat. 27:46 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) around (peri) the (tēn) ninth (enatēn) hour (hōran) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous) shouted up (aneboēsen) [in, AE] [a] great (megalē) voice (phōnē), saying (legōn), “Eli (ēli), Eli (ēli), lema (lema) sabachthani (sabachthani)!?”


This (tout’) is (estin), “God (thee) of me (mou), God (thee) of me (mou), you left me down in (enkatelipes me) [this, AE] in order for what (hinati)!?”


(Both gospel writers, Mark and Matthew (Mat. 27:46, Mark 15:34), write about this part of Jesus Christ's crucifixion as if Jesus is praying to some other separate and distinct being other than himself, which separate and distinct being Jesus refers to as his God.  In Mat. 3:17 Matthew records the voice out of heaven as quoting the God stating that Jesus Christ is a separate and distinct being from himself, specifically that Jesus Christ is his son.  It seems obvious in these records, and many others, that both gospel writers wrote about Jesus Christ as being something other than the one true God almighty. The gospel writers obviously did not write what they wrote as if Jesus Christ was praying to himself.  A reader of these passages might ask, why would the one true God almighty need to pray to himself, or to another god?)  


(For who is Jesus Christ’s God, see Mat. 27:46; Mark 15:34; John 20:17; Rom. 15:6; Heb. 1:9; 1 Pet. 1:3; Rev. 3:2, 12)


Mat. 27:47 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) some (tines) of the ones (tōn) having stood (hestēkotōn) there (ekei), having heard (akousantes), they were saying (elegon) that (hoti), “This one (houtos) calls (phōnei) for Elijah (Hlian).”

Mat. 27:49 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) the (hoi) rest (loipoi) were saying (elegon), “Let [it, AE] go (aphes);


we may see (idōmen) if (ei) Elijah (Hlias) causes himself to come (erchetai), making him whole (sōsōn auton)!”


Mat. 27:50 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) the (ho) Jesus (Iēsous), again (palin) having cried (kraxas) [with, AE] [a] great (megalē) voice (phōnē), let go (aphēken) of the (to) Spirit (pneuma).


Mat. 27:51 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) behold (idou), the (to) curtain (katapetasma) of the (tou) holy place (naou) was split (eschisthē) from (ap’) up above (anōthen) until (heōs) down below (katō), into (eis) two pieces (duo)!

Mat. 27:54 (LIT/UBS4) But (de) the (ho) centurion (hekatontarchos), and (kai) the ones (hoi) with (met’) him (autou) watching (tērountes) the (ton) Jesus (Iēsoun), having seen (idontes) the (ton) earthquake (seismon) and (kai) the things (ta) having caused themselves to come to pass (genomena), they were caused to be in fear (ephobēthēsan) extremely (sphodra), saying (legontes), “Truly (alēthōs) this one (houtos) was being (ēn) [a/the] son (huios) of God (theou)!”


Mat. 27:55 (LIT/UBS4) And (kai) there were being (ēsan) there (ekei) many (pollai) females (gunaikes) observing (theōrousai) from (apo) afar (makrothen), ones who (haitines) followed (ēkolouthēsan) the (tō) Jesus (Iēsou) from (apo) the (tēs) Galilee (Galilaias), ministering (diakonousai) to him (autō);


Mat. 27:56 (LIT/UBS4) among (en) whom (hais) was (ēn) Mariam (Maria), the (hē) Magdalene one (Magdalēnē), and (kai) Mariam (Maria) the (hē) mother (mētēr) of the (tou) James (Iakōbon) and (kai) of Joses (Iōsēph), and (kai) the (hē) mother (mētēr) of the (tōn) sons (huiōn) of Zebedee (Zebedaiou).

Mat. 27:63 (LIT/UBS4) saying (legontes), “Lord (kurie), we were reminded (emnēsthēmen) that (hoti) that one (ekeinos), the (ho) wandering one (planos), he enunciated (eipen) while yet (eti) living (zōn), ‘With (meta) [the passing, AE] of three (treis) days (hēmeras) I am awakened (egeiromai)!’

[so that, AE] at no time (mēpote), the (hoi) disciples (mathētai) of him (autou) having come (elthontes), they may steal (klepsōsin) it (auton) and (kai) they may enunciate (eipōsin) to the (tō) people (laō) he was awoken (ēgerthē) from (apo) the (tōn) dead ones (nekrōn);


and (kai) the (hē) last (eschatē) wandering (planē) shall be (estai) [a] worst one than (cheirōn) the (tēs) first one (prōtēs)!


Mat. 27:65 (LIT/UBS4) The (ho) Pilate (Pilatos) shed light5346 (ephē) to them (autois), “You have (echete) [a] custodian (koustōdian)!

Get underway (hupagete).


Cause yourselves to secure (asphalisasthe) [the burial place, v64, RE] as (hōs) you have seen (oidate).”
