Bible: John 19:31-34
19:31 Then, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies should not stay on the crosses on the Sabbath 1 (for that Sabbath was an especially important one), 2 the Jewish leaders 3 asked Pilate to have the victims’ legs 4 broken 5 and the bodies taken down. 6 19:32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the two men who had been crucified 7 with Jesus, 8 first the one and then the other. 9 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 10 his side with a spear, and blood and water 11 flowed out immediately.
