Series Title: Jesus From Seven Sources
On the Way to Golgotha
Matthew 27:31b-32 (they took the robe…);
Mark 15:20b-22a (they took off…they bring him); Luke 23:26-32;
John 19:16b-17a (And they took…cross went forth)
And they took Jesus, and took off the purple robe from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify him. And he bearing his cross went forth.
And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus and they laid hold upon him; and on him they laid his cross, and compelled him to bear it after Jesus.
And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
