Bible: Matthew 27:35-44

27:35 When 1  they had crucified 2  him, they divided his clothes by throwing dice. 3  27:36 Then they sat down and kept guard over him there. 27:37 Above 4  his head they put the charge against him, 5  which read: 6  “This is Jesus, the king of the Jews.” 27:38 Then two outlaws were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. 27:39 Those 7  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! 8  If you are God’s Son, come down 9  from the cross! 27:41 In 10  the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law 11  and elders 12 were mocking him: 13  27:42 He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down 14  now from the cross, we will believe in him! 27:43 He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now 15  because he said, ‘I am God’s Son! 27:44 The 16  robbers who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him. 17
