The Crucifixion of Christ

Matt. 27:32–38, 48, 50; Mark 15:21–26, 36, 37; Luke 23:26–33, 38, 46

17 oAnd He, bearing His cross, pwent out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, 18 where they crucified Him, and qtwo others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. 19 rNow Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:

JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS

20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.

21 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘He said, “I am the King of the Jews.” ’ ”

22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

23 sThen the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. 24 They said therefore among themselves, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be,” that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says:

t“They divided My garments among them,

And for My clothing they cast lots.”

Therefore the soldiers did these things.

25 uNow there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother’s sister, Mary the wife of vClopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and wthe disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, x“Woman, behold your son!” 27 Then He said to the disciple, “Behold your mother!” And from that hour that disciple took her yto his own home.

28 After this, Jesus, 5knowing that all things were now accomplished, zthat the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and athey filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, b“It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
