Bible: Mark 15:24-41

15:24 Then 1  they crucified 2  him and divided his clothes, throwing dice 3  for them, to decide what each would take. 15:25 It was nine o’clock in the morning 4  when they crucified him. 15:26 The inscription 5  of the charge against him read, “The king of the Jews.” 15:27 And they crucified two outlaws with him, one on his right and one on his left. 15:28 [[EMPTY]] 6  15:29 Those who passed by defamed him, shaking their heads and saying, “Aha! You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, 15:30 save yourself and come down from the cross! 7  15:31 In the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law 8 were mocking him among themselves: 9  “He saved others, but he cannot save himself! 15:32 Let the Christ, 10  the king of Israel, come down from the cross now, that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him. 11 

Jesus’ Death

15:33 Now 12  when it was noon, 13  darkness came over the whole land 14  until three in the afternoon. 15  15:34 Around three o’clock 16  Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? 17  15:35 When some of the bystanders heard it they said, “Listen, he is calling for Elijah! 18  15:36 Then someone ran, filled a sponge with sour wine, 19  put it on a stick, 20  and gave it to him to drink, saying, “Leave him alone! Let’s see if Elijah will come to take him down! 15:37 But Jesus cried out with a loud voice and breathed his last. 15:38 And the temple curtain 21  was torn in two, from top to bottom. 15:39 Now when the centurion, 22  who stood in front of him, saw how he died, 23  he said, “Truly this man was God’s Son! 15:40 There were also women, watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, 24  and Salome. 15:41 When he was in Galilee, they had followed him and given him support. 25  Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem 26  were there too.
