From the sixth hour until the ninth hour.According to the common Jewish method of counting hours, the sixth hour is 12 noon, and the ninth hour is 3 p.m. Jesus was crucified at the third hour (Mark 15:25), which was 9 a.m. In the Old Testament, the morning and evening offering of the lamb was at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Exod. 29:38-39; Num. 28:2-4). The very hours of the crucifixion fulfilled Scripture.
