2 aAnd the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on His head, and put a purple robe on Him;
10 So Pilate * said to Him, “You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I have authority to release You, and I have authority to crucify You?”
12 As a result of this Pilate 1made efforts to release Him, but the Jews cried out saying, “aIf you release this Man, you are no friend of Caesar; everyone who makes himself out to be a king 2opposes Caesar.”
16 So he then ahanded Him over to them to be crucified.
18 There they crucified Him, and with Him atwo other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.
22 Pilate answered, “aWhat I have written I have written.”
24 So they said to one another, “aLet us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to decide whose it shall be”; bthis was to fulfill the Scripture: “They cdivided My outer garments among them, and for My clothing they cast 1lots.”
29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so athey put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth.
31 Then the Jews, because it was athe day of preparation, so that bthe bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (1for that Sabbath was a chigh day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
32 So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was acrucified with Him;
34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately ablood and water came out.
35 And he who has seen has atestified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
37 And again another Scripture says, “aThey shall look on Him whom they pierced.”
38 aAfter these things Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but a bsecret one for cfear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate granted permission. So he came and took away His body.
