19:28 accomplished. The Greek word for “accomplished” (teleo) is the same as “finished” in John 19:30, and is very similar to that for “fulfilled” (teleloo). All three could well be translated “accomplished.”

19:28 fulfilled. There was only one Scripture yet to be “accomplished;” the word used here is not the customary word for “fulfilled.” The reference is to Psalm 69:21: “In my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.”
