Crucifixion of Jesus

John 19:1- 42

1 Then Pi­late there­fore took Jesus, and scourged him.
2 And the sol­diers plat­ted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a pur­ple robe,
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
4 Pi­late there­fore went forth again, and saith unto them, Be­hold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
5 Then came Jesus forth, wear­ing the crown of thorns, and the pur­ple robe. And Pi­late saith unto them, Be­hold the man!
6 When the chief priests there­fore and of­fi­cers saw him, they cried out, say­ing, Cru­ci­fy him, cru­ci­fy him. Pi­late saith unto them, Take ye him, and cru­ci­fy him: for I find no fault in him.
7 The Jews an­swered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, be­cause he made him­self the Son of God.

 

8 When Pi­late there­fore heard that say­ing, he was the more afraid;
9 And went again into the judg­ment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no an­swer.
10 Then saith Pi­late unto him, Speak­est thou not unto me? know­est thou not that I have power to cru­ci­fy thee, and have power to re­lease thee?
11 Jesus an­swered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, ex­cept it were given thee from above: there­fore he that de­liv­ered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12 And from thence­forth Pi­late sought to re­lease him: but the Jews cried out, say­ing, If thou let this man go, thou art not Cæsar’s friend: whoso­ev­er maketh him­self a king speaketh against Cæsar.

 

13 When Pi­late there­fore heard that say­ing, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judg­ment seat in a place that is called the Pave­ment, but in the He­brew, Gab­batha.
14 And it was the prepa­ra­tion of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Be­hold your King!
15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, cru­ci­fy him. Pi­late saith unto them, Shall I cru­ci­fy your King? The chief priests an­swered, We have no king but Cæsar.
16 Then de­liv­ered he him there­fore unto them to be cru­ci­fied. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
17 And he bear­ing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the He­brew Gol­go­tha:
18 Where they cru­ci­fied him, and two other with him, on ei­ther side one, and Jesus in the midst.

 

19 And Pi­late wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writ­ing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was cru­ci­fied was nigh to the city: and it was writ­ten in He­brew, and Greek, and Latin.
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pi­late, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
22 Pi­late an­swered, What I have writ­ten I have writ­ten.

 

23 Then the sol­diers, when they had cru­ci­fied Jesus, took his gar­ments, and made four parts, to every sol­dier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was with­out seam, woven from the top through­out.
24 They said there­fore among them­selves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scrip­ture might be ful­filled, which saith, They part­ed my rai­ment among them, and for my ves­ture they did cast lots. These things there­fore the sol­diers did.

 

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his moth­er, and his moth­er’s sis­ter, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Mag­da­lene.
26 When Jesus there­fore saw his moth­er, and the dis­ci­ple stand­ing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his moth­er, Woman, be­hold thy son!
27 Then saith he to the dis­ci­ple, Be­hold thy moth­er! And from that hour that dis­ci­ple took her unto his own home.

 

28 After this, Jesus know­ing that all things were now ac­com­plished, that the scrip­ture might be ful­filled, saith, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a ves­sel full of vine­gar: and they filled a spunge with vine­gar, and put it upon hys­sop, and put it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus there­fore had re­ceived the vine­gar, he said, It is fin­ished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
31 The Jews there­fore, be­cause it was the prepa­ra­tion, that the bod­ies should not re­main upon the cross on the sab­bath day, (for that sab­bath day was an high day,) be­sought Pi­late that their legs might be bro­ken, and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the sol­diers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was cru­ci­fied with him.
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead al­ready, they brake not his legs:
34 But one of the sol­diers with a spear pierced his side, and forth­with came there out blood and water.
35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might be­lieve.
36 For these things were done, that the scrip­ture should be ful­filled, A bone of him shall not be bro­ken.
37 And again an­oth­er scrip­ture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

 

38 And after this Joseph of Ari­math­aea, being a dis­ci­ple of Jesus, but se­cret­ly for fear of the Jews, be­sought Pi­late that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pi­late gave him leave. He came there­fore, and took the body of Jesus.
39 And there came also Nicode­mus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mix­ture of myrrh and aloes, about an hun­dred pound weight.
40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the man­ner of the Jews is to bury.
41 Now in the place where he was cru­ci­fied there was a gar­den; and in the gar­den a new sepul­chre, where­in was never man yet laid.
42 There laid they Jesus there­fore be­cause of the Jews’ prepa­ra­tion day; for the sepul­chre was nigh at hand.
