Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus
Jesus Mocked by Roman Soldiers (Praetorium)
(If this is not a separate incident, then it is parallel with John 19:1-3)
|MAT 27:27 ¶ Then the soldiers of the governor
took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole Roman cohort around Him.
MAT 27:28 And they stripped Him, and put a scarlet robe on Him.
MAT 27:29 And after weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they kneeled down before Him and mocked Him, saying, "Hail, King of the Jews!"

MAR 15:18 and they began to acclaim Him, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
MAR 15:19 And they kept beating His head with a reed, and spitting at Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him.
Path to Golgotha
|MAT 27:31 And after they had mocked Him, they

they found a man of Cyrene named Simon, whom
they pressed into service to bear His cross.

|JOH 19:17 ¶ They took Jesus therefore, and He
went out, bearing His own cross,
to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha.
First Three Hours of the Crucifixion (Golgotha)
|MAT 27:35 And when they had crucified Him,
MAT 27:38 At that time two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.
MAT 27:36 and sitting down, they began to keep watch over Him there.
MAT 27:44 And the robbers also who had been crucified with Him were casting the same
insult at Him.
|MAR 15:24 And they crucified Him,
MAR 15:27 And they crucified two robbers with Him, one on His right and one on His left.

MAR 15:29 And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him,
wagging their heads, and saying,
"He saved others; He cannot save Himself.
|LUK 23:33a there they crucified Him and the
criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.
LUK 23:34 But Jesus was saying, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."
And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves.

LUK 23:35 And the people stood by, looking on.
|JOH 19:18 There they crucified Him, and with Him
two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.

MAT 27:45 ¶ Now from the sixth hour darkness fell upon all the land until the ninth hour.
MAT 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying,
"Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why hast Thou
MAT 27:48 And immediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour
wine, and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink.
MAT 27:49 But the rest of them said, "Let us see whether Elijah will come to save
MAT 27:50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice,
MAR 15:33 ¶ And when the sixth hour had come, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour.
MAR 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi,

and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour,
LUK 23:45a the sun being obscured;
JOH 19:28 ¶ After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had already been accomplished,
in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, "I am thirsty."
And He bowed His head, and gave up His spirit.
Bystanders at the Crucifixion (Golgotha)
|MAT 27:51 And behold, the veil of the temple was
torn in two from top to bottom, and the earth shook; and the rocks were split,
MAT 27:52 and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
MAT 27:53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many.
MAT 27:54 Now the centurion, and those who were with him keeping guard over Jesus, when they saw the earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, "Truly this was the Son of God!"
MAT 27:55 And many women were there looking on from a distance, who had followed Jesus
from Galilee, ministering to Him,
|MAR 15:38 And the veil of the temple was torn in
two from top to bottom.

|LUK 23:45b and the veil of the temple was
torn in two.
"Certainly this man was innocent."
Request for the Body of Jesus (Golgotha, Praetorium)
MAT 27:57 ¶ And when it was evening,
Then Pilate ordered it to be given over to him.
MAR 15:42 ¶ And when evening had already come, because it was the preparation day,
that is, the day before the Sabbath,
who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God;
LUK 23:50 ¶ And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council,
|JOH 19:31 ¶ The Jews therefore, because it was
the day of preparation, so that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath
(for that Sabbath was a high day), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that
they might be taken away.
JOH 19:32 The soldiers therefore came, and broke the legs of the first man, and of the other man who was crucified with Him;
JOH 19:33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs;
JOH 19:34 but one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately there came out blood and water.
JOH 19:35 And he who has seen has borne witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
JOH 19:36 For these things came to pass, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "Not a bone of Him shall be broken."
JOH 19:37 And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."
JOH 19:38 ¶ And after these things Joseph of Arimathea,
and Pilate granted permission. He came therefore, and took away His body.
Burial (Garden Tomb)
MAT 27:60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock;
and he rolled a large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away.
MAR 15:46 And Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth,
and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock;
and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain.
|JOH 19:39 And Nicodemus came also, who had first
come to Him by night; bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds
JOH 19:40 And so they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen wrappings with the spices, as is the burial custom of the Jews.
JOH 19:41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had yet been laid.
JOH 19:42 Therefore on account of the Jewish day of preparation, because the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.
Watching the Tomb
|MAT 27:61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the
other Mary, sitting opposite the grave.
MAT 27:62 ¶ Now on the next day, which is the one after the preparation, the chief
priests and the Pharisees gathered together with Pilate,
|MAR 15:47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother
of Joses were looking on to see where He was laid.
||LUK 23:55 Now the women who had come with Him out
of Galilee followed after, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid.
LUK 23:56 And they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. ¶ And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
The Empty Tomb
|MAT 28:1 Now after the Sabbath, as it began to
dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at
and sat upon it.
MAT 28:5 And the angel answered and said to the women, "Do not be afraid; for I
know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified.
MAT 28:7 "And go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead;
and behold, He is going before you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have
|MAR 16:1 And when the Sabbath was over, Mary
Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come
and anoint Him.
MAR 16:2 And very early on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen.
MAR 16:3 And they were saying to one another, "Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?"
MAR 16:4 And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away, although it was
MAR 16:5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting at the right, wearing a
white robe; and they were amazed.
MAR 16:7 "But go, tell His disciples and Peter, 'He is going before you into
Galilee; there you will see Him, just as He said to you.'"
|LUK 24:1 But on the first day of the week, at
early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared.
LUK 24:3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
LUK 24:10 Now they were Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James; also
the other women with them were telling these things to the apostles.
LUK 24:11 And these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe
LUK 24:12 [But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the
linen wrappings only; and he went away to his home, marveling at that which had happened.]
|JOH 20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary
Magdalene came early to the tomb, while it was still dark,
and saw the stone already taken away from the tomb.
JOH 20:3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the
