Bible: John 19:17-37
19:23 Now when the soldiers crucified 15 Jesus, they took his clothes and made four shares, one for each soldier, 16 and the tunic 17 remained. (Now the tunic 18 was seamless, woven from top to bottom as a single piece.) 19 19:24 So the soldiers said to one another, “Let’s not tear it, but throw dice 20 to see who will get it.” 21 This took place 22 to fulfill the scripture that says, “They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they threw dice.” 23 So the soldiers did these things.
19:25 Now standing beside Jesus’ cross were his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 24 19:26 So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Woman, 25 look, here is your son!” 19:27 He then said to his disciple, “Look, here is your mother!” From that very time 26 the disciple took her into his own home.
19:28 After this Jesus, realizing that by this time 27 everything was completed, 28 said (in order to fulfill the scripture), 29 “I am thirsty!” 30 19:29 A jar full of sour wine 31 was there, so they put a sponge soaked in sour wine on a branch of hyssop 32 and lifted it 33 to his mouth. 19:30 When 34 he had received the sour wine, Jesus said, “It is completed!” 35 Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. 36
19:31 Then, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies should not stay on the crosses on the Sabbath 37 (for that Sabbath was an especially important one), 38 the Jewish leaders 39 asked Pilate to have the victims’ legs 40 broken 41 and the bodies taken down. 42 19:32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the two men who had been crucified 43 with Jesus, 44 first the one and then the other. 45 19:33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 19:34 But one of the soldiers pierced 46 his side with a spear, and blood and water 47 flowed out immediately. 19:35 And the person who saw it 48 has testified (and his testimony is true, and he 49 knows that he is telling the truth), 50 so that you also may believe. 19:36 For these things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled, “Not a bone of his will be broken.” 51 19:37 And again another scripture says, “They will look on the one whom they have pierced.” 52
