‘He is not here . . .

for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.’

The Crucifixion

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Then said Jesus, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God."

And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar.

And saying, "If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself."

And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, "This is the King of the Jews."

And one of the malefactors, which were hanged, railed on him, saying, "If thou be Christ, save thyself and us."

But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, "Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?"

And he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom."

And Jesus said unto him, "Verily I say unto thee, today shalt thou be with me in paradise."

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.

And the sun was darkened and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit;" and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

The Resurrection

Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.

And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre.

And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus.

And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments:

And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, "Why seek ye the living among the dead?

"He is not here, but is risen; remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, saying the Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."

And they remembered his words.

– Luke 23:33-46; Luke 24:1-8
