Then they went [up] to Him and said, "Hey! King of the Jews!" and struck Him [in the face with their hands].
Then they made a wreath out of thorns and placed it on His head and put a stick in His right hand. They knelt down in front of Him and mocked Him, saying, "Hey, king of the Jews!"
So, immediately he went to Jesus and said, "Greetings, Rabbi," and [then] kissed Him [enthusiastically].
The angel came to her and said, "Greetings, you are someone greatly favored [i.e., by God]; the Lord is with you."
When Jesus said this, one of the guards standing there struck Him [in the face], saying, "Is that any way to talk to the head priest?"
So, Pilate went back into his headquarters and called for Jesus. He said to Him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"
Then Pilate had an inscription written and placed on the cross [i.e., on the upright portion, above His head]. It read, "Jesus from Nazareth, the King of the Jews."
