23 both treat of the time in which the sun was obscured for three
hours, from noon until 3:00 pm, whereupon Jesus breathes his last, and
the temple is torn in two with a mighty earthquake. No mention of a
sandstorm, although a whirlwind is what caused the wrappings to be
removed prior to the body of Jesus going into the ground according to
the Fifth Gospel.
