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!"
MAT 27:30 And they spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head.
MAR 15:16 And the soldiers took Him away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium), and they called together the whole Roman cohort.
MAR 15:17 And they dressed Him up in purple, and after weaving a crown of thorns, they put it on Him;

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 took His robe off and put His garments on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.
MAT 27:32 And as they were coming out,

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


MAT 27:33 And when they had come to a place called Golgotha, which means Place of a Skull,
MAT 27:34 they gave Him wine to drink mingled with gall; and after tasting it, He was unwilling to drink.

MAR 15:20 And after they had mocked Him, they took the purple off Him, and put His garments on Him. And they led Him out to crucify Him.
MAR 15:21 And they pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear His cross.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


MAR 15:22 And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.

MAR 15:23 And they tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.

 

 

 

 


LUK 23:26 And when they led Him away, they laid hold of one Simon of Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus.
LUK 23:27 And there were following Him a great multitude of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him.
LUK 23:28 But Jesus turning to them said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
LUK 23:29 "For behold, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.'
LUK 23:30 "Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us,' and to the hills, 'Cover us.'
LUK 23:31 "For if they do these things in the green tree, what will happen in the dry?"
LUK 23:32 And two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him.
LUK 23:33a And when they came to the place called The Skull,

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


they divided up His garments among themselves, casting lots;

 

 

 

 

MAT 27:36 and sitting down, they began to keep watch over Him there.
MAT 27:37 And they put up above His head the charge against Him which read, "THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


MAT 27:39 And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads,
MAT 27:40 and saying, "You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross."
MAT 27:41 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes and elders, were mocking Him, and saying,
MAT 27:42 "He saved others; He cannot save Himself. He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we shall believe in Him.
MAT 27:43 "He trusts in God; let Him deliver Him now, if He takes pleasure in Him; for He said, 'I am the Son of God.'"

 

 

 

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 15:28 [And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, "And He was numbered with transgressors."]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


and divided up His garments among themselves, casting lots for them, to decide what each should take.

 

 


MAR 15:25 And it was the third hour when they crucified Him.

 

 

MAR 15:26 And the inscription of the charge against Him read, "THE KING OF THE JEWS."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


MAR 15:29 And those passing by were hurling abuse at Him,

wagging their heads, and saying,
"Ha! You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,
MAR 15:30 save Yourself, and come down from the cross! "

MAR 15:31 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes, were mocking Him among themselves and saying,

"He saved others; He cannot save Himself.
MAR 15:32 "Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!"

 

 

 

 

 

 



And those who were crucified with Him were casting the same insult at Him.

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 23:38 Now there was also an inscription above Him, "THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LUK 23:35 And the people stood by, looking on.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


And even the rulers were sneering at Him, saying, "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is the Christ of God, His Chosen One."

 

 

 



LUK 23:36 And the soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, offering Him sour wine,
LUK 23:37 and saying, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!"
LUK 23:39 And one of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him,


saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!"
LUK 23:40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation?
LUK 23:41 "And we indeed justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong."
LUK 23:42 And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!"
LUK 23:43 And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

JOH 19:18 There they crucified Him, and with Him two other men, one on either side, and Jesus in between.

 

 

 

 

 



JOH 19:23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took His outer garments and made four parts, a part to every soldier and also the tunic; now the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece.
JOH 19:24 They said therefore to one another, "Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it, to decide whose it shall be"; that the Scripture might be fulfilled, "They divided My outer garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots."
JOH 19:25a Therefore the soldiers did these things.

 

 


JOH 19:19 And Pilate wrote an inscription also, and put it on the cross. And it was written, "JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS."
JOH 19:20 Therefore this inscription many of the Jews read, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and in Greek.
JOH 19:21 And so the chief priests of the Jews were saying to Pilate, "Do not write, 'The King of the Jews'; but that He said,' I am King of the Jews. '"
JOH 19:22 Pilate answered, "What I have written I have written."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

JOH 19:25b  But there were standing by the cross of Jesus His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
JOH 19:26 When Jesus therefore saw His mother, and the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "Woman, behold, your son!"
JOH 19:27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother!" And from that hour the disciple took her into his own household.

Final Three Hours of the Crucifixion (Golgotha and city)


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 forsaken Me?"
MAT 27:47 And some of those who were standing there, when they heard it, began saying, "This man is calling for Elijah."

 

 

 

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 Him."

MAT 27:50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice,


and yielded up His spirit.


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, lama sabachthani?" which is translated, "My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?"
MAR 15:35 And when some of the bystanders heard it, they began

saying, "Behold, He is calling for Elijah."

 

 

 

MAR 15:36 And someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink,

 


saying, "Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down."


MAR 15:37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry,

 

and breathed His last.

LUK 23:44 And it was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour,
LUK 23:45a   the sun being obscured;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


LUK 23:46 And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, "Father, into Thy hands I commit My spirit." And having said this, He breathed His last.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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."
JOH 19:29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop, and brought it up to His mouth.
JOH 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the sour wine,

 



He said, "It is finished!"

 

 

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,
MAT 27:56 among whom was Mary Magdalene, along with Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

MAR 15:38 And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

 

 

 

 


MAR 15:39 And when the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said,


"Truly this man was the Son of God!"

 

 

MAR 15:40 And there were also some women looking on from a distance,


among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Less and Joses, and Salome.

MAR 15:41 And when He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and minister to Him; and there were many other women who had come up with Him to Jerusalem.

LUK 23:45b  and the veil of the temple was torn in two.

 

 

 

 

 


LUK 23:47 Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying,

 

"Certainly this man was innocent."
LUK 23:48 And all the multitudes who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, beating their breasts.
LUK 23:49 And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee, were standing at a distance, seeing these things.

Request for the Body of Jesus (Golgotha, Praetorium)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MAT 27:57 And when it was evening,

 


there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph,


 

 


who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.
MAT 27:58 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

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,

MAR 15:43 Joseph of Arimathea came, a prominent member of the Council,

 

 

 

who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God;
and he gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
MAR 15:44 And Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead.
MAR 15:45 And ascertaining this from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LUK 23:50 And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a member of the Council,

a good and righteous man

LUK 23:51 (he had not consented to their plan and action), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God;
LUK 23:52 this man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.

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,


being a disciple of Jesus, but a secret one, for fear of the Jews,

 

 

 


asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus;

 

 

 

 

 

and Pilate granted permission. He came therefore, and took away His body.

Burial (Garden Tomb)

 

 

 


MAT 27:59 And Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,

 

 

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 he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.

 

 

 


LUK 23:53 And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth,


 

and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain.
LUK 23:54 And it was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

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 weight.
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,
MAT 27:63 and said, "Sir, we remember that when He was still alive that deceiver said, 'After three days I am to rise again.'
MAT 27:64 "Therefore, give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, lest the disciples come and steal Him away and say to the people, 'He has risen from the dead,' and the last deception will be worse than the first."
MAT 27:65 Pilate said to them, "You have a guard; go, make it as secure as you know how."
MAT 27:66 And they went and made the grave secure, and along with the guard they set a seal on the stone.

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 the grave.

 

 

 

 


MAT 28:2 And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone

 

and sat upon it.
MAT 28:3 And his appearance was like lightning, and his garment as white as snow;
MAT 28:4 and the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men.

 

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 28:6 "He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.

 

 

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 told you."
MAT 28:8 And they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy and ran to report it to His disciples.

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 extremely large.

 

 

 

 

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 16:6 And he said to them, "Do not be amazed; you are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who has been crucified.

 

 


He has risen; He is not here; behold, here is the place where they laid Him.

 

 

 

 

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.'"
MAR 16:8 And they went out and fled from the tomb, for trembling and astonishment had gripped them; and they said nothing to anyone, for they were afraid.

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 24:2 And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,

 

 

 

 

 

LUK 24:3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
LUK 24:4 And it happened that while they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling apparel;
LUK 24:5 and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?
LUK 24:6 "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,
LUK 24:7 saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. "

 

 


LUK 24:8 And they remembered His words,
LUK 24:9 and returned from the tomb and reported all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.

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 them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 20:2 And so she ran and came to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, "They have taken away the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid Him."

 

JOH 20:3 Peter therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they were going to the tomb.
JOH 20:4 And the two were running together; and the other disciple ran ahead faster than Peter, and came to the tomb first;
JOH 20:5 and stooping and looking in, he saw the linen wrappings lying there; but he did not go in.
JOH 20:6 Simon Peter therefore also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he beheld the linen wrappings lying there,
JOH 20:7 and the face-cloth, which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself.
JOH 20:8 So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb entered then also, and he saw and believed.
JOH 20:9 For as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.
JOH 20:10 So the disciples went away again to their own homes.
