The Crucifixion of Jesus


John 19:16-42

16 Then delivered he him unto them, to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

17 And he bare his own cross, and came into a place named of dead men's Skulls, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha;

18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

19 And Pilate wrote also a title, and put it on the cross, and it was written, 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 near to the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin.

21 Then said the high 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 his coat; and the coat was without seam woven from the top throughout.

24 Therefore they said one to another, Let us not divide it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be. This was that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my garments among them, and on my coat did cast lots. So the soldiers did these things indeed.

25 Then stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 And when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he said unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son.

27 Then said he to the disciple, Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her home unto him.

28 After, when Jesus knew that all things were performed, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, he said, I thirst.

29 And there was set a vessel full of vinegar, and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it about a hyssop stalk, and put it to his mouth.

30 Now when Jesus had received of the vinegar, he said, It is finished. And bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31 The Jews then (because it was the Preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day, for that Sabbath was a high day) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken down.

32 Then came the soldiers and brake the legs of the first, and of the other, which was crucified with Jesus.

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 it.

36 For these things were done, that the Scripture should be fulfilled, Not a bone of him shall be broken.

37 And again another Scripture saith, They shall see him whom they have thrust through.

38 And after these things, Joseph of Arimathea (who was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews) besought Pilate that he might take down the body of Jesus. And Pilate gave him license. He came then and took Jesus' body.

39 And there came also Nicodemus (which first came to Jesus by night) and brought of myrrh and aloes mingled together about a hundred pounds.

40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wrapped it in linen clothes with the odors, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

41 And in that place where Jesus was crucified, was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher, wherein was never man yet laid.

42 There then laid they Jesus, because of the Jews' Preparation day, for the sepulcher was near.
