John 19:25-35 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
25 Therefore the soldiers did these things. 1But standing by the cross of Jesus were 2His mother, and His mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and 3Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus then saw His mother, and 4the disciple whom He loved standing nearby, He said to His mother, "5Woman, behold, your son !" 27 Then He said to the disciple, "Behold, your mother !" From that hour the disciple took her into 6his own household. 28 After this, Jesus, 7knowing that all things had already been accomplished, 8to fulfill the Scripture, said, "9I am thirsty." 29 A jar full of sour wine was standing there; so 10they put a sponge full of the sour wine upon a branch of hyssop and brought it up to His mouth. 30 Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "11It is finished !" And He bowed His head and 12gave up His spirit.

Care of the Body of Jesus

31 Then the Jews, because it was 13the day of preparation, so that 14the bodies would not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (afor that Sabbath was a 15high day ), asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 So the soldiers came, and broke the legs of the first man and of the other who was 16crucified with Him; 33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately 17blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has 18testified, and his testimony is true ; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you also may believe.
