Loud Voice

And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
[expired] Mark 15:37

Here "cried" is the aorist active participle of Aphiemi, again a
constantive aorist. Matthew used this same verb for the physical 
death of Christ, but Mark used it to emphasize His Breath control.
The constantive aorist describes the last breath of our Lord . Literally,
"And Jesus, having exhaled with a loud voice, expired (by His own
volition.) While Matthew portrays the loudness of the sound, Mark
indicates that Jesus exhaled these words and by an act of His own
volition did not inhale again, Mark demonstrates that when Jesus 
uttered His last words, He was fully conscious and lucid. Had Jesus
bled to death, He would have fainted; yet He was in perfect control
of all His faculties, a fact also established by John in his report:---
and he [Jesus] bowed his head..."(John 19:30). His head remained
erect until  He had finished His mission.

God forgave all our sins. He canceled the record
of the charges against us and took it away by
nailing it to the cross.

Colossians 2: 13-14
