Jesus Refuses The Wine
There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. Matthew 27:34

The Crucifixion, Lucas Cranach the Elder, 1500-1503

Jesus Is Crucified
Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. …One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him: “Aren’t you the Christ? Save yourself and us!” But the other criminal rebuked him.

“Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence? We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve. But this man has done nothing wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn int two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last. Luke 24: 32, 39-46
