Cornelius a Lapide

AD 1637
Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. According to S. Jerome and others, these were the Roman soldiers, who also gave Him vinegar ( Luke 23:36). But not understanding Hebrew, they thought He called for Elias, of whose return at Christ"s coming they had beard from the Jews.
