According to John the Beloved of Jesus Christ…
Gospel of John 851-875
851) 19:9b; But Jesus gave him no answer.
852) 10a; Then said Pilate unto him, “Speak you not unto me?
853) 10b; Know you not that I have power to crucify you, and have power to lose you?”
854) 11; Jesus answered, “You could have no power at all against me, except it were given you from above: therefore he that delivered me unto you, has the greater sin.”
855) 12; From thence forth Pilate sought to lose him, but the Jews cried, saying, “If you deliver him, you are not Caesar’s friend: for whosoever makes himself a King, speaks against Caesar.”
856) 13; When Pilate heard that word, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgement-seat in a place called the Pavement, and in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
857) 14; And it was the Preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he said unto the Jews, “Behold your King.”
858) 15a; But they cried, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him.”
859) 15b; Pilate said unto them, “Shall I crucify your King?”
860) 15c; The high Priests answered, “We have no King but Caesar.”
861) 16a; Then delivered he him unto them, to be crucified.
862) 16b; And they took Jesus, and led him away.
863) 17-18; And he bare his cross, and came into a place named of dead men’s Skulls, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha: *where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.
864) 19; And Pilate wrote also a title and put it on the cross, and it was written, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS
865) 20; This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified, was near to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, Greek and Latin.
866) 21; Then said the high Priests of the Jews to Pilate, “Write not, The King of the Jews, but that he said, I am King of the Jews.”
867) 22; Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
868) 23; Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part, and his coat: and the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
869) 24a; Therefore they said one to another, “Let us not divide it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be.”
870) 24b; This was that the Scripture might be fulfilled, which says, they departed my garments among them, and on my coat did cast lots.
871) 24c; So the soldiers did these things indeed.
872) 25; Then stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene.
873) 26; And when Jesus saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he said unto his mother, “Woman, behold your son.”
874) 27; Then said he to the disciple, “Behold your mother”: and from that hour, the disciple took her home unto him.
875) 28; After, when Jesus knew that all things were performed, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, he said, “I thirst.”
