Bible: Matthew 27:37-44

27:37 Above 1  his head they put the charge against him, 2  which read: 3  “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 4  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! 5  If you are God’s Son, come down 6  from the cross! 27:41 In 7  the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law 8  and elders 9 were mocking him: 10  27:42 He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down 11  now from the cross, we will believe in him! 27:43 He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now 12  because he said, ‘I am God’s Son! 27:44 The 13  robbers who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him. 14
