The Crucifixion

John 19

16 n Then he delivered Him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus 1 and led Him away. 17 o And He, bearing His cross, p went out to a place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha, 18 where they crucified Him, and q two others with Him, one on either side, and Jesus in the center. 19 r Now Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross. And the writing was:
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 s 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:
t "They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots." 2
Therefore the soldiers did these things.
25 u Now there stood by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of v Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and w the disciple whom He loved standing by, He said to His mother, x "Woman, behold your son!" 27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold your mother!" And from that hour that disciple took her y to his own home.
