19:1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and flogged him.
19:3 They said, "Hail, King of the Jews!" and they struck him with their hands.
19:4 Then Pilate went out again, and said to them, "Behold, I bring him out to you, that you may know that I find no basis for a charge against him."
19:5 Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment. Pilate said to them, "Behold, the man!"
19:6 When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, "Crucify! Crucify!" Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves, and crucify him, for I find no basis for a charge against him."
19:8 When therefore Pilate heard this saying, he was more afraid.
19:9 He entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Jesus, "Where are you from?" But Jesus gave him no answer.
19:11 Jesus answered, "You would have no power at all against me, unless it were given to you from above. Therefore he who delivered me to you has greater sin."
19:12 At this, Pilate sought to release him, but the Jews cried out, saying, "If you release this man, you aren`t Caesar`s friend! Everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar!"
19:14 Now it was the Preparation of the Passover, at about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews, "Behold, your King!"
19:15 They cried out, "Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!" Pilate said to them, "Shall I crucify your King?" The chief priests answered, "We have no king but Caesar!"
19:16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus and led him away.
19:18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.
19:19 Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, "JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS."
19:21 The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, "Don`t write, `The King of the Jews,` but that, `he said, I am King of the Jews.`"
19:22 Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
19:23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also the coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
19:24 Then they said to one another, "Let`s not tear it, but cast lots for it, whose it will be," that the scripture might be fulfilled, which says, "They parted my garments among them, For my cloak they cast lots." Therefore the soldiers did these things.
19:26 Therefore when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, "Woman, behold your son!"
19:28 After this, Jesus, seeing that all things were now finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I am thirsty."
19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, "It is finished." He bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
19:31 Therefore the Jews, because it was the Preparation, so that the bodies wouldn`t remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special one), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
19:32 Therefore the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first, and of the other who was crucified with him;
19:33 but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was already dead, they didn`t break his legs.
19:35 He who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, that you also may believe.
19:36 For these things happened, that the scripture might be fulfilled, "A bone of him will not be broken."
19:37 Again another scripture says, "They will look on him whom they pierced."
19:38 After these things, Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away Jesus` body. Pilate gave him permission. He came therefore, and took away his body.
19:42 Then because of the Jews` Preparation (for the tomb was near at hand) they laid Jesus there.
