again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?
13And they cried out again, Crucify him.
14Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly,

took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.

28And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.
29And they that passed by railed on him, wagging
their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,

31Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes,
He saved others; himself he cannot save.
Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled

an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body
44And Pilate marvelled if he were
already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.
45And when he knew it of the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.

laid him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre.
