Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

“Put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection.”

The Crucifixion | Jesus’ Sacrificial, Victorious Love

On the Way to Crucifixion

Mark 15:15-22 KJV

And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged Him, to be crucified. (15)

And the soldiers led Him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band. And they clothed Him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about His head, and began to salute Him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote Him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon Him, and bowing their knees worshiped Him. And when they had mocked Him, they took off the purple from Him, and put His own clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him. (16-20)

And they compel one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear His cross. And they bring Him unto the place (which is called in the Hebrew, from John 19:17 KJV) Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, ‘The place of a skull.’ (21-22)

Luke 23:32-34 KJV

And there were also two other, malefactors, led with Him [Jesus] to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. (32-33)

Then said Jesus, ‘Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.’ And they parted His raiment, and cast lots. (34)

Jesus Takes Care of His Mother Mary

John 19:26-27 KJV

When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple standing by, whom He loved, He saith unto his mother, ‘Woman, behold thy son!’ Then saith He to the disciple, ‘Behold thy mother!’ And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

Jesus Mocked Again

Luke 23:35-38 KJV

And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided Him, saying, ‘He saved others; let Him save himself, if He be Christ, the chosen of God.’ And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming to Him, and offering Him vinegar, and saying, ‘If Thou be the king of the Jews, save Thyself.’ And a superscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, ‘This Is The King Of The Jews.’

The Thieves

Luke 23:39-44 KJV

And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on Him, saying, ‘If thou be Christ, save Thyself and us.’ But the other answering rebuked him, saying, ‘Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.’ (39-41)

And he said unto Jesus, ‘Lord, remember me when Thou comest into Thy kingdom.’ And Jesus said unto him, ‘Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with Me in paradise.’ (42-43)

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. (44)

Jesus’ Last Words before His Death

Matthew 27:46-50 KJV

And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?’ That is to say, ‘My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?’ (46)

Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, ‘This man calleth for Elias.’ And straightway one of them ran, and took a sponge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. The rest said, ‘Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save Him.’ (47-49)

Jesus, when He had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. (50)

John 19:30 KJV

When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, He said, ‘It is finished:’ and He bowed His head, and gave up the ghost.

Luke 23:46 KJV

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, He said, ‘Father, into Thy hands I commend My spirit:’ and having said thus, He gave up the ghost.

Signs and Symbols

Luke 23:45 KJV

And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

Matthew 27:51-52 KJV

And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Witness of the Centurion

Luke 23:47 KJV

Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, ‘Certainly this was a righteous man.’

Mark 15:39 KJV

And when the centurion, which stood over against Him, saw that He so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, ‘Truly this man was the Son of God.’

Matthew 27:54 KJV

Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, ‘Truly this was the Son of God.’
