Lk. 23:26 As they led Jesus away, they
seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, who
was coming from the country, and they
laid the cross on him, and made him
carry it behind Jesus. 27 A great number
of the people followed him, and among
them were women who were beating
their breasts and wailing for him. 28 But
Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me,
but weep for yourselves and for your
children. 29 For the days are surely coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the
barren, and the wombs that never bore,
and the breasts that never nursed.’ 30
Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us’; and to the hills, ‘Cover
us.’ 31 For if they do this when the wood
is green, what will happen when it is
32 Two others also, who were criminals,
were led away to be put to death with
him. 33 When they came to the place
that is called The Skull, they crucified
Jesus there with the criminals, one on his
right and one on his left. 34 [Then Jesus
said, “Father, forgive them; for they do
not know what they are doing.”] And
they cast lots to divide his clothing. 35
And the people stood by, watching; but
the leaders scoffed at him, saying, “He
saved others; let him save himself if he is
the Messiah of God, his chosen one!” 36
The soldiers also mocked him, coming
up and offering him sour wine, 37 and
saying, “If you are the King of the Jews,
save yourself!” 38 There was also an
inscription over him, “This is the King
of the Jews.”
39 One of the criminals who were
hanged there kept deriding him and
saying, “Are you not the Messiah? Save
yourself and us!” 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, “Do you not fear
God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we
are getting what we deserve for our
deeds, but this man has done nothing
wrong.” 42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your
kingdom.” 43 He replied, “Truly I tell
you, today you will be with me in Paradise.”
44 It was now about noon, and darkness
came over the whole land until three in
the afternoon, 45 while the sun’s light
failed; and the curtain of the temple was
torn in two. 46 Then Jesus, crying with a
loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands
I commend my spirit.” Having said this,
he breathed his last. 47 When the centurion saw what had taken place, he
praised God and said, “Certainly this
man was innocent.” 48 And when all the
crowds who had gathered there for this
spectacle saw what had taken place, they
returned home, beating their breasts. 49
But all his acquaintances, including the
women who had followed him from
Galilee, stood at a distance, watching
these things.
50 Now there was a good and righteous
man named Joseph, who, though a
member of the council, 51 had not
agreed to their plan and action. He
came from the Jewish town of Arimathea, and he was waiting expectantly for
the kingdom of God. 52 This man went
to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
53 Then he took it down, wrapped it in
a linen cloth, and laid it in a rock-hewn
tomb where no one had ever been laid.
54 It was the day of Preparation, and
the sabbath was beginning. 55 The
women who had come with him from
Galilee followed, and they saw the tomb
and how his body was laid. 56 Then
they returned, and prepared spices and
ointments. On the sabbath they rested
according to the commandment.
