Matthew 27:33Matthew 27:56

14. Crucified

a. Killed and Mocked by Men

33 And when they had come to a place called 1Golgotha, that is to say, Place of a Skull,

34 aThey gave Him 1wine to drink, mingled with bgall. And when He tasted it, He would 2not drink.

35 And when they had crucified Him, they 1adivided His garments among themselves, casting lots.

36 And they sat down and aguarded Him there.

37 aAnd they set in writing over His head the charge against Him: This Is Jesus, The King Of The Jews.

38 At that time atwo 1robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.

39 And those who were passing by blasphemed Him, awagging their heads

40 And saying, You who adestroy the temple and build it up in three days, bsave Yourself! 1cIf You are the Son of God, come down from the cross!

41 aLikewise also the chief priests with the scribes and elders mocked Him and said,

42 He saved others; Himself He 1cannot save. He is aKing of Israel; let Him come down now from the cross, and we will believe on Him.

43 He trusts in God; let Him arescue Him now if He wants Him, for He said, I am the Son of God.

44 And in the same way the robbers who were crucified with Him also areproached Him.

b. Judged and Forsaken by God

45 aNow from the 1sixth hour darkness fell over all the land until the 1ninth hour.

46 And about the 1ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, aMy God, My God, 2why have You forsaken Me?

47 And some of those standing there, when they heard this, said, This man is calling Elijah.

48 And immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he soaked it with 1avinegar and put it on a reed, and gave it to Him to drink.

49 But the rest said, Let Him be. Let us see if Elijah is coming to save Him.

50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and 1ayielded up His spirit.

c. The Effect of His Crucifixion

51 And behold, the 1aveil of the temple was split in two 2from top to bottom, and the 3earth was shaken and the 4rocks were split,

52 And the 1tombs were opened, and many 2bodies of the saints who had fallen aasleep were raised.

53 And they 1came out of the tombs after His resurrection and entered into the holy city and 2appeared to many.

54 Now the centurion and those with him aguarding Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that happened, became greatly frightened, saying, Truly this was the bSon of God.

55 And many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, aministering to Him,

56 Among whom were aMary the Magdalene, and 1Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the bmother of the sons of Zebedee.
