The Crucifixion
Interwoven Gospels

Now it was the third hour when they crucified Him. And they offered Him wine mingled with myrrh to drink, but when He had tasted it, He would not drink it. And with Him, they crucify two robbers, one on His right hand and one on His left, and Jesus in the midst. (And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, "And He was reckoned with the lawless.") Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."

The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took His garments and made four parts, to each soldier a part; also the coat. Now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore to one another, "Let us not rend it; but let us cast lots for it, whose it shall be": that the scripture might be fulfilled which saith, "They divided My garments among them, And upon My vesture did they cast lots." The soldiers therefore did these things: and sitting down they watched Him there.

Now Pilate also wrote a title and superscription of His accusation, and put it on the cross over His head. And there was written: "THIS IS JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS." This title, therefore, many of the religious leaders read; for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek. Therefore the chief priests said to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The King of the Jews'; but that He said, I am the King of the Jews." Pilate answered, "What I have written, I have written."
