the words 'last phrase uttered' doesn't appear in the text, so you are using some sort of eisegesis, and adding non-existent boundaries, when exegesis is the proper hermeneutic. but If his last words included all of the phrases mentioned by the different gospel accounts, each phrase could be considered some of his last words, so again, there is no mutual exclusivity. But regardless, the passages give orders of events, and they all fit together. Logic is not so much a matter of interpretation, but rather a matter of truth values. If you use eisegesis, it's like introducing new premises to an argument which aren't justified, thus you introduce your own problems ruining an argument or causing contradictions.
