Here they gave Him a mixture of wine and gall to drink, but having tasted it He refused to drink it. After crucifying Him, they divided His garments among them by lot, and sat down there on guard. read more.
Over His head they placed a written statement of the charge against Him: THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS. At the same time two robbers were crucified with Him, one at His right hand and the other at His left. And the passers-by reviled Him. They shook their heads at Him and said, "You who would pull down the Sanctuary and build a new one within three days, save yourself. If you are God's Son, come down from the cross." In like manner the High Priests also, together with the Scribes and the Elders, taunted Him. "He saved others," they said, "himself he cannot save! He is the King of Israel! Let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in him. His trust is in God: let God deliver him now, if He will have him; for he said, 'I am God's Son.'" Insults of the same kind were heaped on Him even by the robbers who were being crucified with Him. Now from noon until three o'clock in the afternoon there was darkness over the whole land; but about three o'clock Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is to say, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" "The man is calling for Elijah," said some of the bystanders. One of them ran forthwith, and filling a sponge with sour wine put it on the end of a cane and offered it Him to drink; while the rest said, "Let us see whether Elijah is coming to deliver him." But Jesus uttered another loud cry and then yielded up His spirit. Immediately the curtain of the Sanctuary was torn in two from top to bottom: the earth quaked; the rocks split; the tombs opened; and many of God's people who were asleep in death awoke. And coming out of their tombs after Christ's resurrection they entered the holy city and showed themselves to many.

Here they offered Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He refused it. Then they crucified Him. This done, they divided His garments among them, drawing lots to decide what each should take. It was nine o'clock in the morning when they crucified Him. read more.
Over His head was the notice in writing of the charge against Him: THE KING OF THE JEWS. And together with Jesus they crucified two robbers, one at His right hand and one at His left. No translation And all the passers-by reviled Him. They shook their heads at Him and said, "Ah! you who were for destroying the Sanctuary and building a new one in three days, come down from the cross and save yourself." In the same way the High Priests also, as well as the Scribes, kept on scoffing at Him, saying to one another, "He has saved others: himself he cannot save! This Christ, the King of Israel, let him come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe." Even the men who were being crucified with Him heaped insults on Him. At noon there came a darkness over the whole land, lasting till three o'clock in the afternoon. But at three o'clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Elohi, Elohi, lama sabachthani?" which means, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?" Some of the bystanders, hearing Him, said, "Listen, he is calling for Elijah!" Then a man ran to fill a sponge with sour wine, and he put it on the end of a cane and placed it to His lips, saying at the same time, "Wait! let us see whether Elijah will come and take him down." But Jesus uttered a loud cry and yielded up His spirit. And the curtain in the Sanctuary was torn in two, from top to bottom.

A vast crowd of the people also followed Him, and of women who were beating their breasts and wailing for Him. But Jesus turned towards them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For a time is coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the women who never bore children, and the breasts which have never given nourishment.' read more.
Then will they begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us;' and to the hills, 'Cover us.' For if they are doing these things in the case of the green tree, what will be done in that of the dry?" They brought also two others, criminals, to put them to death with Him. When they reached the place called 'The Skull,' there they nailed Him to the cross, and the criminals also, one at His right hand and one at His left. Jesus prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing." And they divided His garments among them, drawing lots for them; and the people stood looking on. The Rulers, too, repeatedly uttered their bitter taunts. "This fellow," they said, "saved others: let him save himself, if he is God's Anointed, the Chosen One." And the soldiers also made sport of Him, coming and offering Him sour wine and saying, "Are *you* the King of the Jews? Save yourself, then!" There was moreover a writing over His head: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. Now one of the criminals who had been crucified insulted Him, saying, "Are not you the Christ? Save yourself and us." But the other, answering, reproved him. "Do you also not fear God," he said, "when you are actually suffering the same punishment? And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving due requital for what we have done. But He has done nothing amiss." And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come in your Kingdom." "I tell you in solemn truth," replied Jesus, "that this very day you shall be with me in Paradise." It was now about noon, and a darkness came over the whole country till three o'clock in the afternoon. The sun was darkened, and the curtain of the Sanctuary was torn down the middle, and Jesus cried out in a loud voice, and said, "Father, to Thy hands I entrust my spirit." And after uttering these words He yielded up His spirit. The Captain, seeing what had happened, gave glory to God, saying, "Beyond question this man was innocent." And all the crowds that had come together to this sight, after seeing all that had occurred, returned to the city beating their breasts. But all His acquaintances, and the women who had been His followers after leaving Galilee, continued standing at a distance and looking on.

Then Pilate gave Him up to them to be crucified. Accordingly they took Jesus; and He went out carrying His own cross, to the place called Skull-place--or, in Hebrew, Golgotha-- where they nailed Him to a cross, and two others at the same time, one on each side and Jesus in the middle. read more.
And Pilate wrote a notice and had it fastened to the top of the cross. It ran thus: JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS. Many of the Jews read this notice, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the notice was in three languages--Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. This led the Jewish High Priests to remonstrate with Pilate. "You should not write 'The King of the Jews,'" they said, "but that he claimed to be King of the Jews." "What I have written I have written," was Pilate's answer. So the soldiers, as soon as they had crucified Jesus, took His garments, including His tunic, and divided them into four parts--one part for each soldier. The tunic was without seam, woven from the top in one piece. So they said to one another, "Do not let us tear it. Let us draw lots for it." This happened that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says, "They shared my garments among them, and drew lots for my clothing." That was just what the soldiers did. Now standing close to the cross of Jesus were His mother and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. So Jesus, seeing His mother, and seeing the disciple whom He loved standing near, said to His mother, "Behold, your son!" Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that time the disciple received her into his own home. After this, Jesus, knowing that everything was now brought to an end, said--that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "I am thirsty." There was a jar of wine standing there. With this wine they filled a sponge, put it on the end of a stalk of hyssop, and lifted it to His mouth. As soon as Jesus had taken the wine, He said, "It is finished." And then, bowing His head, He yielded up His spirit.

At last, having finished their sport, they took off the cloak, clothed Him again in His own garments, and led Him away for crucifixion. Going out they met a Cyrenaean named Simon; whom they compelled to carry His cross, and so they came to a place called Golgotha, which means 'Skull-ground.' read more.
Here they gave Him a mixture of wine and gall to drink, but having tasted it He refused to drink it.

At last, having finished their sport, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him. One Simon, a Cyrenaean, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing along, coming from the country: him they compelled to carry His cross. So they brought Him to the place called Golgotha, which, being translated, means 'Skull-ground.' read more.
Here they offered Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He refused it.

As soon as they led Him away, they laid hold on one Simon, a Cyrenaean, who was coming in from the country, and on his shoulders they put the cross, for him to carry it behind Jesus. A vast crowd of the people also followed Him, and of women who were beating their breasts and wailing for Him. But Jesus turned towards them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. read more.
