The Crucifixion of God’s Son

Mark 15 v 21 – 32

21And they compelled a passerby, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry His cross. 22And they brought Him to the place called Golgotha (which means Place of a Skull). 23And they offered Him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. 24And they crucified Him and divided His garments among them, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take. 25And it was the third hour when they crucified Him. 26And the inscription of the charge against Him read, “The King of the Jews.” 27And with Him they crucified two robbers, one on His right and one on His left.
29And those who passed by derided Him, wagging their heads and saying, “Aha! You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, 30save yourself, and come down from the cross!”
31So also the chief priests with the scribes mocked Him to one another, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save Himself. 32Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe.” Those who were crucified with Him also reviled Him
