Bible: Matt 27:39-44

27:39 Those 1  who passed by defamed him, shaking their heads 27:40 and saying, “You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! 2  If you are God’s Son, come down 3  from the cross! 27:41 In 4  the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law 5  and elders 6 were mocking him: 7  27:42 He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down 8  now from the cross, we will believe in him! 27:43 He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now 9  because he said, ‘I am God’s Son! 27:44 The 10  robbers who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him. 11
