Bible: John 19:18-27

19:18 There they 1  crucified 2  him along with two others, 3  one on each side, with Jesus in the middle. 19:19 Pilate also had a notice 4  written and fastened to the cross, 5  which read: 6  “Jesus the Nazarene, the king of the Jews.” 19:20 Thus many of the Jewish residents of Jerusalem 7  read this notice, 8  because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the notice was written in Aramaic, 9  Latin, and Greek. 19:21 Then the chief priests of the Jews 10  said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The king of the Jews,’ but rather, ‘This man said, I am king of the Jews.’ 19:22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

19:23 Now when the soldiers crucified 11  Jesus, they took his clothes and made four shares, one for each soldier, 12  and the tunic 13  remained. (Now the tunic 14  was seamless, woven from top to bottom as a single piece.) 15  19:24 So the soldiers said to one another, “Let’s not tear it, but throw dice 16  to see who will get it.” 17  This took place 18  to fulfill the scripture that says,They divided my garments among them, and for my clothing they threw dice.” 19  So the soldiers did these things.

19:25 Now standing beside Jesuscross were his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 20  19:26 So when Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing there, he said to his mother, “Woman, 21  look, here is your son! 19:27 He then said to his disciple, “Look, here is your mother!” From that very time 22  the disciple took her into his own home.
