Jesus is brought before Pilate, but says nothing. The crowd choose Barrabas to be released, and Jesus is handed over to be scourged and crucified. Jesus is put in a purple robe and made to wear a crown of thorns. He is mocked, and then crucified. The Cyrenian Simon is made to carry Jesus’ cross to Golgotha (Calvary in Latin). Jesus refuses wine mixed with myrrh. The soldiers casts lots for Jesus’ garments. Jesus is mocked by the priests and scribes, and reviled by the robbers crucified with him. My God, my god, why have you forsaken me? (psalm 22). Jesus dies, and the veil of the temple is torn from top to bottom. A centurion says, ‘Truly this man was the Son of God.’ Joseph of Arimathea takes the body, and entombs it.
