1Cor.1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
1Cor.1:19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
1Cor.1:20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
1Cor.1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.
1Cor.1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
1Cor.1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Cor.1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.
1Cor.1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Cor.1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Cor.1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Cor.1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Cor.1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Cor.1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Cor.1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.
1Cor.2:1 And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
1Cor.2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

 Matt.27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put him to death:
Matt.27:2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
Matt.27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
Matt.27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that.
Matt.27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
Matt.27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood.
Matt.27:7 And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in.
Matt.27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
Matt.27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value;
Matt.27:10 And gave them for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.
Matt.27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest.
Matt.27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
Matt.27:13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
Matt.27:14 And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly.
Matt.27:15 Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
Matt.27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
Matt.27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
Matt.27:18 For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
Matt.27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
Matt.27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
Matt.27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
Matt.27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
Matt.27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
Matt.27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
Matt.27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
Matt.27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
Matt.27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
Matt.27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
Matt.27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Matt.27:30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.
Matt.27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
Matt.27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
Matt.27:33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
Matt.27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Matt.27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.
Matt.27:36 And sitting down they watched him there;
Matt.27:37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Matt.27:38 Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left.

Luk.23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
Luk.23:40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
Luk.23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
Luk.23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Luk.23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

Matt.27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,
Matt.27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
Matt.27:41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,
Matt.27:42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
Matt.27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God.
Matt.27:44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
Matt.27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
Matt.27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Matt.27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
Matt.27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink.
Matt.27:49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him.
Matt.27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.
Matt.27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;
Matt.27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
Matt.27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
Matt.27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.

John.19:31 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.
John.19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
John.19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
John.19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
John.19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
John.19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
John.19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.

Matt.27:57 When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:

Matt.27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
Matt.27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
Matt.27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.

Hebr.10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus,
Hebr.10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
Hebr.10:21 And having an high priest over the house of God;
Hebr.10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebr.10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Hebr.10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Hebr.10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Hebr.10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
Hebr.10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

 John.18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
John.18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?
John.18:30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
John.18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:
John.18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die.
John.18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
John.18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?
John.18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?

John.18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
John.18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.
John.18:39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews?
John.18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
John.19:1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
John.19:2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
John.19:3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote him with their hands.
John.19:4 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.
John.19:5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
John.19:6 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.
John.19:7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
John.19:8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
John.19:9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
John.19:10 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?
John.19:11 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.
John.19:12 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.
John.19:13 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.
John.19:14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
John.19:15 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.
John.19:16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
John.19:17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
John.19:18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
John.19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
John.19:20 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.
John.19:21 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.
John.19:22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
John.19:23 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.
John.19:24 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.
John.19:25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene.
John.19:26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
John.19:27 Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
John.19:28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
John.19:29 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.
John.19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
John.19:31 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.
John.19:32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
John.19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
John.19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
John.19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
John.19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
John.19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
