The Life and Teachings
of Jesus
A Restatement of the Gospels

161. The Crucifixion

        22And they brought him to the place called Golgotha. 33There they crucified him, and the criminals, one on the right and one on the left. 34And Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
        34They offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall;a but when he tasted it, he would not drink it. 37And over his head they put the charge against him, which read, “This is Jesus—the King of the Jews.”
        23When the soldiers had crucified Jesus they took his garments and made four parts, one for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was without seam, woven from top to bottom. 24So they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.” Thus was fulfilled the scripture, “They parted my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” 25So the soldiers did this.

a   “They offered him wine to drink, mingled with gall;”—This drugged wine was intended to help lessen the suffering, but Jesus refused to drink it.
