Whose Side Are You On? – Those Who Witnessed the Passion

“Some of the bystanders said, ‘This man is calling Elijah.'” And when the soldier came up to give him vinegar to drink from a sponge, they said, “Let him alone, let us see if Elijah comes to save him!”. (‘Don’t ruin my show with a gesture of mercy!’)
