Notes on The Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ, According to St. Mark (Author Bishop Richard Challoner (ed.))

15:25 The third hour: The ancient account divided the day into four parts, which were named from the hour from which they began; the first, third, sixth, and ninth hour. Our Lord was crucified a little before noon; before the third hour had quite expired; but when the sixth hour was near at hand.
