Rulers of Rome and Israel when Jesus was crucified
Matthew 27:27-53, 55-56 (29vs) * Mark 15:16-38,40-41 (25vs) * Luke 23:26-46,49 (22vs) * John 19:17-37 (21vs)
Then the governorís soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium, and gathered the whole garrison together against him.
They stripped him, and put a scarlet robe on him.
They braided a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand; and they kneeled down before him, and mocked him, saying,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"They spat on him, and took the reed and struck him on the head.
When they had mocked him, they took the robe off of him, and put his clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him.
The soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Praetorium; and they called together the whole cohort.
They clothed him with purple, and weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on him.
They began to salute him,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"They struck his head with a reed,
and spat on him,
and bowing their knees, did homage to him.
When they had mocked him, they took the purple off of him, and put his own garments on him.
They led him out to crucify him.
As they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name, and they compelled him to go with them, that he might carry his cross.
They came to a place called "Golgotha," that is to say, "The place of a skull."
They gave him sour wine to drink mixed with gall.
They set up over his head the accusation against him written,
"THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS."Then there were two robbers crucified with him, one on his right hand and one on the left.
Those who passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads,
"You who destroy the temple,Likewise the chief priests also mocking,
with the scribes, the Pharisees, and the elders, said,
"He saved others, but he canít save himself.The robbers also who were crucified with him cast on him the same reproach.
They compelled one passing by, coming from the country,
They brought him to the place called Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, "The place of a skull."
They offered him wine mixed with myrrh to drink, but he didnít take it.
It was the third hour, and they crucified him.
The superscription of his accusation was written over him,
The Scripture was fulfilled, which says,
"Ha! You who destroy the temple,Likewise, also the chief priests mocking among themselves with the scribes said,
"He saved others.Those who were crucified with him insulted him.
When they led him away, they grabbed one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it after Jesus.
A great multitude of the people followed him, including women who also mourned and lamented him.
But Jesus, turning to them, said,
"Daughters of Jerusalem, donít weep for me,There were also others, two criminals, led with him to be put to death.
When they came to the place that is called The Skull,
"Father, forgive them, for they donít know what they are doing."Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots. [Psa 22:18]
He went out, bearing his cross, to the place called ďThe Place of a Skull,Ē
Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written,
"JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS."Therefore many of the Jews read this title,
for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city;
and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.
The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate,
"Donít write,Pilate answered,'The King of the Jews,'but,'he said, I am King of the Jews.'"
"What I have written, I have written."
The people stood watching. The rulers with them also scoffed at him, saying,
"If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!"An inscription was also written over him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew:
"THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS."
One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying,
"If you are the Christ, save yourself and us!"But the other answered, and rebuking him said,
"Donít you even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?He said to Jesus,
"Lord, remember me when you come into your Kingdom."Jesus said to him,
"Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments
Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
Then they said to one another,
"Letís not tear it, but cast lots for it to decide whose it will be,"that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which says,
"They parted my garments among them.Therefore the soldiers did these things.
But there were standing by the cross of Jesus
Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved
"Woman, behold your son!"Then he said to the disciple,
"Behold, your mother!"From that hour, the disciple took her to his own home.
Many women were there watching from afar, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, serving him. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.
There were also women watching from afar, among whom were both Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome; who, when he was in Galilee, followed him, and served him; and many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.
All his acquaintances, and the women who followed with him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour.
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" * Psalm 22:1Some of them who stood there, when they heard it, said,
"This man is calling Elijah."Immediately one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him a drink. * Psalm 69:21
The rest said,
"Let him be. Letís see whether Elijah comes to save him."Jesus cried again with a loud voice, and yielded up his spirit.
* Isaiah 42:13
When the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
At the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?Ē [Psa 22:1]Some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said,
"Behold, he is calling Elijah."One ran, and filling a sponge full of vinegar, put it on a reed, and gave it to him to drink, saying,
"Let him be.Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and gave up the spirit.
Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said,
"Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!"Having said this, he breathed his last.
After this, Jesus, seeing that all things were now finished,
"I am thirsty."Now a vessel full of vinegar was set there;
so they put a sponge full of the vinegar on hyssop,
and held it at his mouth. [Psa 69:21]
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said,
"It is finished."He bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
Therefore the Jews, because it was the Preparation Day,
Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs
However one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear,
He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true.
For these things happened, that the Scripture might be fulfilled,
Behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom.
The earth quaked and the rocks were split.
The veil of the temple was torn in two from the top to the bottom.
The tombs were opened,
