Crucify Him


Take This Cup  

Your sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.  

You said, “Father, take this cup from me. Not My will be done, but Your will be done.”  

And there appeared an angel from heaven who strengthened Him.  

And in agony He prayed, “Not My will but your will be done.” 

Peter Wept  

He kissed Jesus; he drew near. He kissed Him, Jesus. 

And Jesus said to him, “Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?”  

Then Peter said, he said, “Woman, I do not know him.”  

And Peter said, “No, man, I am not one.” 

And he said, “I do not know what you’re talking about.” 

And the rooster crowed.  

And the Lord looked, and Peter remembered, “Before the rooster crows today, you will deny me three times.” And Peter wept, and he wept bitterly.  


“Prophesy! Who is it that struck you? If you are the Christ, tell us.” 

“If I tell you, you will not believe. But from now on, the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.”  

So, they said, “Are you the Son of God?” 

“You say that I am.”  

“What further testimony do we need? We have heard it from His own lips.”  

Away with This Man  

Away with this Man…  

And release to us Barabbas. 

“Why, what evil has He done?”  

“Crucify Him! Crucify Him!” 

He delivered Jesus over to their will.  

Crucify Him  

Pilot took Jesus and flogged Him.  

Soldiers, they twisted a crown of thorns. 

And put it on His head and arrayed Him in a purple robe.  

“Hail! The King of the Jews! Hail! The King of the Jews!”  

And they struck him with their hands.  

And when they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the purple robe, and put on His own clothes.  

And they led Him away to crucify Him.  

Simon of Cyrene  

Simon, Simon of Cyrene.  

“Seize him.” 

“Carry the cross, carry the cross behind Jesus.”  

And the women were weeping, and the women were mourning behind Jesus.  

And when they came to the place that is called the Skull,  

There they crucified Him, and He said, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.”  

And they cast lots to divide His garments. 

Two Criminals  

“He saved others, let Him save Himself.  

He saved others, but He cannot save Himself.  

Let Him save Himself.  

Aha! You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,  

save yourself! And come down from that cross.”  

And there were two criminals, one on the right, one on the left.  

One said, “Are you not the Son of God? Save yourself and us!”  

And the other said, “Do you, do you not fear your God?  

We received our due reward of our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong.”  

And he said, “Jesus! Remember me when you come into your kingdom.”  

“Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.”  

Behold Your Mother  

When Jesus saw His mother and the disciple whom He loved standing by,  

He said to His mother, “Woman, behold your son.”  

Then He said to His disciple whom He loved, “Behold your mother, your mother.”  

And from that hour he took her into his own home, his own home.  

It Is Finished  

And when the sixth hour had come,  

there was darkness over the whole land.  

And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice,  

“Eloi, Eloi, Lama Sabachthani.”  

Which means, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?”  

And knowing all was finished, He said, “I thirst.”  

So, they put a sponge full of vinegar and held it to his mouth.  

Jesus cried out with a loud voice,  

“Father into thy hands, I commit my spirit.  

It is finished, it is finished.”  

And He breathed His last.  

And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  

“Truly this man was the Son of God!”  

“Truly this man was the Son of God!”

My Lord and My God

Not a Bone of Him Shall Be Broken 

“Not a bone of Him shall be broken,  

they shall look on Him whom they have pierced.” 

And coming to Jesus they saw He was already dead,  

they did not break His legs.  

“Not a bone of Him shall be broken,  

they shall look on Him whom they have pierced.”  

And one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear,  

and at once, there came out blood and water.  

“Not a bone of Him shall be broken,  

they shall look on Him whom they have pierced.”  

Joseph of Arimathea  

Joseph of Arimathea, a respected member of the council,  

A good and righteous man, a good and righteous man. 

Joseph of Arimathea took the body of Jesus  

and wrapped Him in a clean linen shroud  

And laid him in a tomb,  

which had been hewn out of a rock.  

And he rolled the stone against the door of the tomb.  

Mary Magdalene and Mary, Mother of Jesus, saw where He was laid. 

He Is Risen  

On the first day of the week at early dawn  

the women went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared.  

And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb. 

They did not find the body there.  

And behold, two men in dazzling white robes stood beside them.  

They were frightened 

And bowed their faces to the ground. 

“Why do you seek the living among the dead?  

He is not here, He’s living. He is risen!  

Remember that He told you, ‘the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinners and be crucified, and on the third day rise.”  

They remembered His words.  

And they ran and told the disciples, but they did not believe.  

But Peter rose and ran to the tomb.  

Looking inside it, he saw the linen clothes by themselves,  

and he left wondering what had happened.  

Mary stood by the tomb, weeping. 


“Woman, why are you crying? Who is it you are looking for? 

And thinking that He was a gardener she said,  

“Sir, if you have carried Him away, tell me where you have put Him.”  


She turned and looked at Him and cried out,  

“Rabbi, teacher, Rabboni.”  

So she went to the disciples and said, “I have seen the Lord.”  


That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus  

About seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking about Him.  

And Jesus Himself drew near, but their eyes were kept from recognizing Him. 

“What do you speak of as you walk? What do you speak of as you walk?”  

“Do you not know these things that have happened  

in Jerusalem concerning Jesus of Nazareth?  

He was condemned to death and crucified.  

We had hoped that He would redeem Israel.” 

“O foolish men who do not believe all that the prophets have spoken.  

Was it not necessary that Christ should suffer these things  

and enter into His glory?”  

“And He opened our eyes, and we said, ‘stay with us.’  

And He broke the bread, and He gave it to us.  

And we recognized Him, though He vanished from our sight.  

Did our hearts not burn within us?  

Did our hearts not burn within us?  

He was known in the breaking of the bread.” 

Peace Be with You  

One evening, when the doors were still shut because they were afraid, Jesus came and stood among them and said,  

“Peace be with you.”  

And they were startled and frightened. And they thought they had seen a spirit.  

“Why are you troubled? Why do you question? See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. A spirit has no flesh and bones as you see I have.”  

And He showed them His hands and His feet, and He said to them,  

“Have you anything here to eat?” and they gave Him a piece of broiled fish.  

And He took it and ate it before them. And He said, 

“Peace be with you.” 

My Lord and My God  

Thomas, one of the twelve, was called the twin.  

He was not with them when Jesus came, but they told him, “We have seen the Lord.”  

Thomas said, “Unless I see in His hands the print of nails and place my finger in, and place my hand in His side, I will not believe.”  

And though the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said,  

“Peace be with you.” And He said,  

“Put your finger here and see My hand, put out your hand and place it in My side. Do not be faithless but believe.”  

“My Lord and My God.”  

Let’s Go Fishing  

Peter and Nathaniel of Galilee,  

Thomas and the two sons of Zebedee,  

and two others went fishing, they said, “Let’s go fishing.”  

And they went out into the boat.  

But that night they caught nothing as they fished on the sea. 

Just as day was breaking He stood on the beach,  

but they did not know that it was, did not know that it was Jesus.  

He said, “Children, have you any fish?” 

“No,” they answered, “No.”  

“Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.”  

So they did as He said, and they could not haul it,  

for the quantity of fish was too great.  

“It is the Lord! It is the Lord!”  

The disciple Jesus loved said, “It is the Lord.”  

Peter put on his clothes, and sprang into the sea,  

And Jesus said, “Bring some fish you have just caught.” 

There were a hundred and fifty three. 

But the net was not torn. It was not torn.  

Do You Love Me?  

“Do you love Me more than these?” 

“Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” 

“Feed my lambs.” 

“Peter, do you love me?”  

“Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”  

“Tend my sheep.” 

“Simon Peter, do you love me?” 

“Lord, you know everything, you know that I love you!” 

“Feed my lambs and follow me!”  

“And lo, I am with you, even until the end of the age.”
