John 19

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;

And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.

10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.

14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!

15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:

18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.

20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.

24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.

25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.

26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.

33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:

34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

38 And after this Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took the body of Jesus.

39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.

40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

  1. Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.

    2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,

    3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.

    4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

    5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

    6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

    7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.

    Little did Pilate think with what holy regard these sufferings of Christ would, in after-ages, be thought upon and spoken of by the best and greatest of men. Our Lord Jesus came forth, willing to be exposed to their scorn. It is good for every one with faith, to behold Christ Jesus in his sufferings. Behold him, and love him; be still looking unto Jesus. Did their hatred sharpen their endeavours against him? and shall not our love for him quicken our endeavours for him and his kingdom? Pilate seems to have thought that Jesus might be some person above the common order. Even natural conscience makes men afraid of being found fighting against God. As our Lord suffered for the sins both of Jews and Gentiles, it was a special part of the counsel of Divine Wisdom, that the Jews should first purpose his death, and the Gentiles carry that purpose into effect. Had not Christ been thus rejected of men, we had been for ever rejected of God. Now was the Son of man delivered into the hands of wicked and unreasonable men. He was led forth for us, that we might escape. He was nailed to the cross, as a Sacrifice bound to the altar. The Scripture was fulfilled; he did not die at the altar among the sacrifices, but among criminals sacrificed to public justice. And now let us pause, and with faith look upon Jesus. Was ever sorrow like unto his sorrow? See him bleeding, see him dying, see him and love him! love him, and live to him!

  2. 4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.

    5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!

    6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him.

    Crucified although innocent – Pilate could find no fault in our Lord and Savior and had no reason to sentence Him to death. Yet the crowd of people would not be satisfied until judgement of death was pronounced upon Him. Good and evil struggling against each other and evil won.

    Much like our day the battle of good and evil is waging in our country. Who will stand for truth? Little by little the privileges of the good are being taken away and destroyed by the works of evil. We must fight the fight for good and right. We must not be ashamed to be a christian and to live a christian life. We are warned that in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Lord. We are living in “those days.”

    We must be awaken to the time…..His coming is being heralded loudly from the pages of the Bible. Don’t allow the voices of the world to pronouncement judgement on the godly morals and values that we live by. We must be willing to march to the beat of a different drummer – the voice of the Spirit of God and His word for the direction for our lives.

  3. THY KINGDOM COME
    THE KING

    19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.
    20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
    21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
    22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

    Compelling and convincing is the fact that JESUS is King. As Pilate identified JESUS by HIS own words “King of The Jews”. It was recorded in the 3 major languages of that day. As well, JESUS said IT and Pilate couldn’t change it.

    We are wise to remember the power of Words of the KING cannot be altered to fit our beliefs, ideas or concepts. TRUTH is TRUTH and none can change it.

    We must KNOW JESUS and we KNOW JESUS when we KNOW HIS WORDS. If the carnal earthly King could not change the words of JESUS, we cannot either.

    John 17:17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

    Church it is HIGH TIME to fall in Love with the WORD of GOD. Your BIBLE should be your favorite book, hobby and habit. Allow The BIBLE to be our Best FRIEND.

  4. John 19
    33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
    34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
    35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
    36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

  5. John 19
    39-42 Nicodemus, who had first come to Jesus at night, came now in broad daylight carrying a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds. They took Jesus’ body and, following the Jewish burial custom, wrapped it in linen with the spices. There was a garden near the place he was crucified, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been placed. So, because it was Sabbath preparation for the Jews and the tomb was convenient, they placed Jesus in it.

    From darkness into light. A public display of yes I know Him Yes I love Him and now I will serve Him, Jesus brought life through His precious death. To many and even those who had cried out to crucify Him. Nicodemus found what he had so longed for. Now in return he publicly cared for the ONE who had shown him the way. Oh such an action of love. We too must serve Him . Our actions attitude and live will display how we feel for the One who died for us. The world cried crucify Him yet there were those who chose not to follow after the coed but took the choice to still serve Him. Will we follow the crowd or choose to separate and serve the One who died for us.

  6. 8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
    9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
    10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
    11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
    12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.

    Pilate went on later in life to commit suicide before of these events, while it was the will of God for the sacrifice to be made, Pilates wife had a dream and told Pilate to have nothing to do with it. But what’s powerful is Jesus telling him that the greater sin has fallen on the ones who delivered and called for Jesus. The crowd later goes in to say that they would take the punishment for the generations to come. Pilate couldn’t find a reason to sentence him to death but for fear of someone’s opinion he asked them what they wanted and washed his hands free of it

  7. 26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
    27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

    Jesus had brothers that would have taken care of his mother but his own family didn’t receive him as the son of God. He placed his mother in the hands and care of his disciple. Even in His agony of the cross, His love and care did not cease.

  8. 9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
    10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
    11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

  9. John 19:26-27 (Amp) So Jesus, seeing His mother there, and the disciple whom He loved standing near, said to His mother, [ Dear] woman, See, [ here is] your son! [27] Then He said to the disciple took her into His own [ keeping,own home]. After this, Jesus that all was now finished [ ended] , said in fulfillment of the Scripture, I thirst. [ Ps.69:21] They gave me also gall [ poisonous and bitter] for my food, and in my thirst they have me vinegar ( a soured wine) to drink. Jesus refused to drink it. Even after all the pain and suffering he did for our sins, He love endures forever and forever.

  10. 10 Then Pilate said to Him, are You not speaking to me? Do You not know that I have power to crucify You, and power to release You? Jesus answered, you could have no power at all against Me unless it had been given you from above. Therefore the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin.

  11. 16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.

    In all of our sin, God still saw us worthy of salvation. To think He took our place on that cross we deserve, is overwhelming. It’s the purest of love that we don’t deserve, but He loves us anyways. Thank You Jesus!

  12. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a GARDEN; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
    John 19:41 KJV
    Sin and death were brought into this world through the first Adam in a garden. It was only fitting that the second Man Adam conquer sin and death in the garden.
    And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15:45 KJV
    Jesus restored the possibility of eternal life to all who will obey Him.
    O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1 Corinthians 15:55‭-‬57 KJV

  13. Convenient Kings

    And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar…

    But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, WE HAVE HAVE NO KING but Caesar.
    John 19:12‭, ‬15 KJV

    God blesses those who are under authority. The Bible tells men to obey those who have the rule over them, women to be subject to their husbands, children to be obedient to their parents, servants to obey their masters, and all to obey His Word. Yet, the heart of man is often unyeilding.

    If the boss is too demanding, we quit. If the pastor is too strict, we change churches. If the husband is too controlling, we divorce. If the parents are too bossy, we rebel or run away. If the Word of God is too judgmental of our lifestyle, we explain It away or toss It altogether.

    It seems that we are always on the lookout for someone who is less concerned about our current behavior. We want what we want and are eager to align ourselves with those who will help us to get it. However, there is a huge difference between aligning ourselves with a convenient authority and submitting ourselves to the proper authority.

    The Pharisees had no intention of submitting their hearts and lives to Caesar. They just needed a quick and temporary allegiance in order to get what they wanted. We must be careful not to have this same spirit in us—one that is always looking to get our own way. For if we do, we will find ourselves in the company of lawless and unethical men, who will have no qualms about using us to get what they want and then disposing of us as we have disposed of others.

    Being under authority is safety. Being without it, is the road to destruction. Let us make Jesus our Lord and King in word and deed.

  14. Jesus’ response to Pilate provides us with confidence as well! Pilate asked if he realized that the power of life and death was in his hand, but ‘Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.’

    Sadly, these words moved Pilate, who then sought to release him while those he came to save would seek to have him crucified. The perfect example for us to follow went from being hailed Hosanna, to being railed at to be crucified, and yet still had a word to speak. That example provides an important perspective for the trial!

    We shouldn’t be downcast and silent when things appear to be going against us, because God is still in control! It couldn’t be happening without him allowing it to be so, which means it has a purpose. It may be for us, or it may be for those around us, so we need to retain our trust and confidence in his plan. We need to lift up our eyes from whence cometh our help and declare our faith and trust in him!

    The enemy may appear to have the advantage at the moment, but God has a greater perspective! God’s intentions are to build, while the enemy seeks only to destroy. We just need to know that all things will truly work together for our good if we’re pursuing God’s purpose in that labor of love! Our purpose may lead us astray, but his purpose will always lead us home! The enemy may seek to bring us down, but with God that very trial can be a victory for Jesus!

  15. 19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus Of Nazareth The King Of The Jews.

    20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.

    21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.

    Reading these specific scriptures it caught my eye when I heard 3 different languages were wrote on the cross. Hebrew, Latin, and Greek, I said hmm is this a coincidence….I think not. So I went ahead and did a quick study.

    Hebrew represents Hebrew religion, Latin represents Roman politics, and Greek represents Greek culture. These three together represent the entire world, all of mankind. This signifies that the Lord Jesus was killed by and for all mankind. Not long after the Lord’s death, certain Jews, Romans, and Greeks were saved. The Lord Jesus was put to death for the entire human race as represented by these three languages.

    Yes Jesus died for the entire world and the chief priest told Pilate to write something different but he had already written what was destined by God. Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews.

  16. iLove the Kingdom

    “Afterward Joseph of Arimathea, who had been a secret disciple of Jesus (because he feared the Jewish leaders), asked Pilate for permission to take down Jesus’ body. When Pilate gave permission, Joseph came and took the body away. With him came Nicodemus, the man who had come to Jesus at night. He brought about seventy-five pounds of perfumed ointment made from myrrh and aloes.”
    ‭‭John‬ ‭19:38-39‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    This is the original Secret Service. Sonetines they do it in secret or in public, Jesus is the king of King and Lord of lords and ultimately people either deny him or accept him. Us as a church, have to be willing to except the service that people give no matter how big or small whether openly or privately for they are ultimately serving Jesus.

  17. 39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight.

    40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.

    41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.

    42 There laid they Jesus therefore because of the Jews’ preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigh at hand.

    The price of Salvation. What Nicodemus and brought to honor the body of his savior was what today would be worth anywhere from $150,000 to $200,000 worth of myrrh and aloe ointment. For Joseph of Arimathea to have a Sepulcher chiseled out of stone just signifies even more just how wealthy this man was so not only was Jesus prepared for burial as a king but he was also put to rest as a king. What do we have in our lives that we would give up so that we can have a closer relationship with our king or we can come to know true salvation or we can even give to the kingdom of God so that others can have a more defining life in Christ? What is it going to take for us to give up for us to truly become a book of Acts Church where they went and sold everything and they brought it into the storehouse all for the work of God?

  18. St. John 19:34-35
    34) But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
    35) And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.

    1 John 5:6, “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.”

  19. I Love To Worship The Lord
    vs 8-9
    When Pilate herd this he was more frightened than ever. He took Jesus back into the palace again and asked him Where are you from but Jesus gave no answer.

  20. Verses 35-37 MSG “The eyewitness to these things has presented an accurate report. He saw it himself and is telling the truth so that you, also, will believe. These things that happened confirmed the Scripture, “Not a bone in his body was broken,” and the other Scripture that reads, “They will stare at the one they pierced.”

    Ezekiel 12:25 NIV “But I the Lord will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious people, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”

  21. 26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!

    27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

    28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.

    29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.

    30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

  22. The testament of LOVE

    As I was reading this. I couldn’t help but wonder what it would have been like to be there? To be apart of the crowd to see this man that they called the King of The Jews. This man that had raised the dead, healed people, and ministered to thousands. Yet the crowd cried “Crucify HIM!” What did this man do that was so bad? Did he do something wrong? I thought all he did was show God’s love to us. Yet some are saying that this is their King, while others are crying out to kill him. Then to see him be beaten then made to carry a wooden cross up this hill. To later be nailed to it and raised for all to see him suffer his last moments on earth. What did he do to deserve this? What kind of LOVE did he have for you and me? What Love for us. For God so Loved the World. That’s how much love he has. Even when we feel unlovable, For God…, When we feel discouraged, For God…, When we are struggling to understand, For God… 1 Corth.13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.NIV

    For God so Loved the World

  23. 12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar’s friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar

    Leaders need to be prayerful about what, how and whom they lead. And at all means seek to fo what is right and not be manipulated by the people or position.

  24. 36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.

    Scripture should be fulfilled. There is no force in the universe that can prevent God’s word from coming to pass The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.(Isaiah 40:8)

  25. 10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

    11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

    Jesus speaks to Pilate about him having no power over him. The truth is that only God has the power.

  26. 10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?

    11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.

    Jesus speaks to Pilate about him having no power over him. Pilate knew he had to so something because Jesus has done nothing wrong. So he turned to the people which he did what they said because overall he has no power.

  27. 12 Then Pilate tried to release him, but the Jewish leaders shouted, “If you release this man, you are no ‘friend of Caesar.’b Anyone who declares himself a king is a rebel against Caesar.”

    Just like a mob mentality, you continue to scream and shout at the opposition, and the head will eventually give in. Pilate felt the pressure from those around him and gave in to their demands.
