Life of Jesus
Then They Crucified Him
Mat 27:35-56; Mk 15:24-41; Lk 23:33-49; Jn 19:18-30
35 Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots , that it
might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet: "They divided My garments among
them, and for My clothing they cast lots."
36 Sitting down, they kept watch over Him there.
37 And they put up over His head the accusation written against Him: THIS IS
JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
38 Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the
39 And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads
40 and saying, "You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save
Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross."
41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the scribes and elders, said,
42 "He saved others; Himself He cannot save. If He is the King of Israel, let Him
now come down from the cross, and we will believe Him.
43 "He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said,
'I am the Son of God.'"
44 Even the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing.
45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, " Eli,
Eli, lama sabachthani ?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, "This Man is
calling for Elijah!"
48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and
put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, "Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him."
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and
the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,
52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen
asleep were raised;
53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy
city and appeared to many.
54 So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the
earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, "Truly
this was the Son of God!"
55 And many women who followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there
looking on from afar,
56 among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the
mother of Zebedee's sons.
- And when they crucified Him, they divided His garments, casting lots for them
to determine what every man should take.
- Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him.
- And the inscription of His accusation was written above: THE KING OF THE JEWS.
- With Him they also crucified two robbers, one on His right and the other on
- So the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "And He was numbered with the
- And those who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads and saying, "Aha!
You who destroy the temple and build it in three days,
- "save Yourself, and come down from the cross!"
- Likewise the chief priests also, mocking among themselves with the scribes,
said, "He saved others; Himself He cannot save.
- "Let the Christ, the King of Israel, descend now from the cross, that we may
see and believe." Even those who were crucified with Him reviled Him.
- Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until
the ninth hour.
- And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eloi, Eloi,
lama sabachthani?" which is translated, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken
- Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, "Look, He is calling
- Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and
offered it to Him to drink, saying, "Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will
come to take Him down."
- And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.
- Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
- So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this
and breathed His last, he said, "Truly this Man was the Son of God!"
- There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene,
Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joses, and Salome,
- who also followed Him and ministered to Him when He was in Galilee; and many
other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary , there they crucified Him,
and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left.
34 Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."
And they divided His garments and cast lots.
35 And the people stood looking on. But even the rulers with them sneered,
saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the chosen of
36 The soldiers also mocked Him, coming and offering Him sour wine,
37 and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself."
38 And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek , Latin , and
Hebrew : THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
39 Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, "If You are
the Christ, save Yourself and us."
40 But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Do you not even fear God,
seeing you are under the same condemnation?
41 "And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this
Man has done nothing wrong."
- Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom."
- And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in
- Now it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth
until the ninth hour.
- Then the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
- And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, "Father, 'into Your
hands I commit My spirit.'" Having said this, He breathed His last.
- So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying,
"Certainly this was a righteous Man!"
- And the whole crowd who came together to that sight, seeing what had been
done, beat their breasts and returned.
- But all His acquaintances, and the women who followed Him from Galilee, stood
at a distance, watching these things.
18 where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, one on either side, and
Jesus in the center.
19 Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was: JESUS
OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20 Then many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified
was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.
21 Therefore the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The
King of the Jews,' but, 'He said, "I am the 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 each soldier a part, and also the tunic. Now the tunic was
without seam, woven from the top in one piece.
24 They said therefore among themselves, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for
it, whose it shall be," that the Scripture might be fulfilled which says: "They
divided My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots." Therefore
the soldiers did these things.
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister,
Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing
by, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!" And from that hour that
disciple took her to his own home.
28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the
Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I thirst!"
29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge
with sour wine, put it on hyssop , and put it to His mouth.
30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And
bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.
