RF JOH 19:1 Pilate, therefore, took Jesus, and flogged Him.
RF JOH 19:2 And the soldiers, wreathing a crown of thorns, placed it upon His head; and, having clothed Him in a purple robe,
RF JOH 19:3 they approached Him, and said: "Good health to the King of the Judeans!" assaulting Him at the same time.
RF JOH 19:4 Pilate, going out again, said to them: "See! I bring Him out to you, so that you may know that I find nothing criminal in Him."
RF JOH 19:5 Jesus, therefore, came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, when Pilate said to them: "Behold the Man!"
RF JOH 19:6 When, however, the chief priests and officials saw Him, they yelled out, saying: "Crucify! crucify!" Pilate said to them: "Take Him yourselves and crucify; for I find no crime in Him."
RF JOH 19:7 "We have a law, and, according to that law, He ought to die," the Judeans replied to him; "because He made Himself out to be a Son of a God."
RF JOH 19:8 When Pilate, however, heard this statement, he became still more terrified;
RF JOH 19:9 and, re-entering the Palace, he asked Jesus, "Where do You come from?" But Jesus gave him no answer.
RF JOH 19:10 Pilate, addressing Him, therefore said: "Will You not speak to me? Do You not know that I have power to discharge You, and have power to crucify You?"
RF JOH 19:11 Jesus replied to him, "You have no power whatever over Me other than what may be granted to you from above. Therefore, the one who delivered Me up to you is the greater sinner."
RF JOH 19:12 Pilate hereupon endeavored to discharge Him; but the Judeans were shrieking out: "If you discharge Him, you are not the friend of Caesar! Any man setting himself up as king, is a traitor against the Emperor."
RF JOH 19:13 When Pilate, therefore, heard the threats, he brought Jesus out, and seated himself upon the bench in a place named The Pavement [but Gabbatha in Hebrew.]
RF JOH 19:14 It was now the preparation-day for the Passover. It was about twelve o'clock. Addressing the Judeans, he said "Behold your King!"
RF JOH 19:15 "Get off! get off!" they yelled out in reply; "crucify Him!"
"Shall I crucify your King?" exclaimed Pilate to them.
"We have no king but Caesar," was the response of the chief priests.
RF JOH 19:16 He then accordingly delivered Him over to them, that He might be crucified.
RF JOH 19:17 The Crucifixion.
They therefore took Jesus; and He went out, carrying the cross for himself, to the spot called "Skull-field" which in the Hebrew, is named Golgotha;
RF JOH 19:18 Where they crucified him, and with Him two others, one on each side, and Jesus in the middle.
RF JOH 19:19 Pilate had also written an inscription, and placed it upon the cross; and the words were,
RF JOH 19:20 Many of the Judeans, accordingly, read this inscription; because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city: and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.
RF JOH 19:21 The chief priests of the Judeans, therefore, said to Pilate: "Do not write, 'The King of the Judeans'; but merely that 'He said, I am King of the Judeans.'"
RF JOH 19:22 "What I have written," replied Pilate, "I have written."
RF JOH 19:23 Dividing His Garments.
Then, when the soldiers had nailed Jesus to the cross, they took his clothes, and, dividing them into four, gave to each soldier a share. They also took the robe, which, however, was seamless, knitted throughout from the top.
RF JOH 19:24 They accordingly remarked to each other: "Do not let us tear it, but let us throw for it, whose it shall be"; thus verifying the Scripture which said:
This was what the soldiers did.
RF JOH 19:25 Jesus, His Mother, and John.
But there were standing near the cross of Jesus His own mother, His mother's sister, Mary, the Mary of Clopas, as well as Mary the Magdalene.
RF JOH 19:26 When Jesus, therefore, saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved, standing near, He said to His mother: "Mother, see your son!"
RF JOH 19:27 He then said to the disciple: "See, that is your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
RF JOH 19:28 "It is Finished."
After this, Jesus seeing that all was now completed, so that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said: "I THIRST."2
RF JOH 19:29 A vessel full of sour wine was standing at hand; so, filling a sponge with the wine, they fastened it to a cane, and held it up to His mouth.
RF JOH 19:30 Then, when Jesus had received the wine, He said: "It is finished!" and bowing His head, He resigned His spirit.

2. Psa 69:21
RF JOH 19:31 The Judeans, therefore, since it was preparation-day—for that day was the Great Day of the Week of Rest—so that the bodies might not remain on the cross on the Sabbath, requested Pilate that they might be removed after their legs were broken.
RF JOH 19:32 The soldiers, therefore, came and broke the legs of the first, as well as of the other one crucified along with Him;
RF JOH 19:33 but when they came to Jesus, and seeing that He was already dead, they did not break His legs.
RF JOH 19:34 One of the soldiers, however, with a spear pierced His side; when blood and water at once issued from it.
RF JOH 19:35 The Gospel Attested.
And the eye-witness gives this evidence, and his evidence is truthful; and he himself knows that he speaks true, so that you may believe.
RF JOH 19:36 For these events happened, in order that the Scripture might be verified: A BONE OF HIS SHALL NOT BE BROKEN.1
RF JOH 19:37 Again, the Scripture elsewhere says: THEY SHALL GAZE UPON HIM WHOM THEY HAVE PIERCED.2
RF JOH 19:38 Joseph of Aramathea.
After this, Joseph of Arimathea, who was a disciple of Jesus, but a secret one, owing to his dread of the Judeans, begged of Pilate to be allowed to take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate granted him permission. He accordingly came and took away His body.
RF JOH 19:39 And Nicodemus, who in the first instance came to Him by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, weighing about a hundred pounds.
RF JOH 19:40 They, therefore, took the body of Jesus, and wrapped it up in a winding-sheet, along with the aromatics, in accordance with the custom of the Judeans when burying.
RF JOH 19:41 Now, in proximity to the spot where He was crucified, there was a garden; and in this garden there was a new tomb, in which no one had ever been placed.
RF JOH 19:42 There, then, the tomb being near, they deposited Jesus, on account of the preparation-day of the Judeans.
