The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
Posted By Web Team On April 18, 2014 @ 12:33 am In Employees and Culture | 9 Comments
Compassion is closed today to honor Christ’s sacrifice on the cross.
It was the day of Preparation of Passover Week, about the sixth hour.
“Here is your king,” Pilate said to the Jews.
But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”
“Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked.
“We have no king but Caesar,” the chief priests answered.
Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). Here they crucified him, and with him two others — one on each side and Jesus in the middle.
— John 19:17-18 (NIV)
