REMOVAL OF THE BODY OF JESUS FROM THE CROSS
REMOVAL OF JESUS’ BODY FROM THE CROSS.As a result, according to visions of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, Nicodemus and Joseph positioned their ladders beneath the cross and mounted their horses, each carrying a very long piece of linen to which three thick straps were connected.Their hands and knees were tied together to secure Jesus’ torso to the cross’s trunk, and the arms were connected in a similar manner at the wrists.
- Then, by striking Jesus’ hands with powerful pegs that were placed to the points of the nails at the rear of the cross, they were able to pull the nails out of his hands, which had not been significantly shook by the blows.
- The nails were readily removed from the wounds since they had grown in size as a result of the weight of the body, which was now supported by the linen band and so no longer rested on the nails.
- The lower portion of the corpse, which had sunk to the knees in death, now lay in a sitting position on a linen band that had been tied around the wrists on the arms of the cross.
- The lower part of the body had plunged to the knees in death.
- The same way that Joseph was striking out the left nail from the cross and allowing the left arm to gently slip down on the body, Nicodemus was securing the right arm to the cross in the similar manner, as well as the thorn-crowned head that had fallen upon the right shoulder.
- After that, the right nail was driven out, and the arm was allowed to sink into the band that held the rest of the body.
- In the meantime, Abenadar the Centurion had been removing the large nail from the feet, albeit it had taken a great deal of work.
- Cassius reverently picked up the nails as they dropped out of the wall and set them down next to the Blessed Virgin, a touching gesture.
- When they were finished with that, they moved one or two ladders in front of the cross, near to the Holy Body, and unfastened one or two bands from the trunk of the cross, which they placed on one of the ladder’s hooks.
- This was done to the other two bands, which they strung on two of the lower hooks in the same manner.
- In this manner, the Sacred Body began to sink gradually by degrees to the spot where the Centurion Abenadar, erected on moveable stairs, was ready to receive it.
- His lower limbs were clutched in his arms below the knees, and he fell slowly, while Nicodemus and Joseph climbed down the ladders step by step, holding the upper limbs in their arms softly and cautiously, as if they were transporting a valued and gravely wounded friend.
- The most precious, the most horribly mistreated corpse of the Redeemer was brought to the ground in this manner.
- The lowering of Jesus from the crucifixion was a moving experience beyond description.
- Everything was done with such care and sensitivity, as if there was a dread that it would bring the Lord sorrow in any way.
- All of the love and veneration that they had felt for the Holy of Holies during His life was transferred to the Sacred Body, and all who participated were transformed as a result.
- Everyone was staring up with their eyes transfixed, and every action was accompanied by the raising of their hands, tears, and expressions of agony and grief.
- However, not a single word was said.
When the men involved in the sacred activity gave expression to their devout mood, it was as if they were executing some grave duty; and when it was essential to give directives to one another, they did so in a few words and a low tone, as if they were doing so by accident.After hearing the hammer blows used to drive the nails out of the cross, Mary and Magdalen, along with everyone else who had witnessed the Crucifixion, were struck with new sorrow, for the sound reminded them of Jesus’ most terrible nailing to the cross, which they had witnessed on the previous day.They shook, as if expecting to hear His piercing cries for the second time, and wept afresh over His death, which had been announced by the quiet of those holy lips.Once His Mother’s arms were extended out in pain and fervent yearning to receive it, the men covered His Sacred Body from the knees to the waist in linen and lay it on a sheet in His Mother’s arms, which were spread out in sorrow and ardent longing.It appeared like the Blessed Virgin was sitting on a big cover that had been stretched out on the ground, with her right knee lifted a little and her back supported by a type of cushion, probably formed of mantles wrapped together.One might see the poor Mother, worn by grief and exhaustion, sitting in the posture most appropriate for performing one of life’s final, tragic responsibilities to the remains of her killed Son.
- The Sacred Body was placed on a sheet that was put across the Mother’s lap by the men.
- While the gorgeous head of Jesus rested on her slightly elevated knee, Jesus’s torso sprawled extended on the sheet beneath her feet.
- In the Blessed Mother’s breast, she was torn between feelings of love and anguish in equal measure.
- While she held the corpse of her darling Son in her arms, whose protracted martyrdom she had been unable to ease with any loving intervention, she also witnessed the horrendous maltreatment that had been inflicted upon it, and she stared upon the wounds that were now close beneath her eyes.
- During this time, Magdalen knelt before Him, her face lowered, pressing her lips to His blood-stained cheeks.
- In the midst of her unbearable pain, the Blessed Virgin’s strength and fortitude remained unwavering.
Fortunately, her grief was not such that she could let the signs of outrage and torture to stay on the Sacred Body, and she immediately began working diligently and meticulously to wash and purify it of any evidence of ill-usage.She opened the crown of thorns at the back of Jesus’ head with great care, and with the aid of others, she was able to take it off his head.It was necessary to first remove some of the thorns that had gone deeply into the skin in order to prevent the removal of the crown from causing the wounds to swell even more.The crown was placed in close proximity to the nails.
- With a pair of round, yellow pincers, Mary carefully extracted from the wounds the long splinters and jagged thorns that had been lodged in the Lord’s head and displayed them regretfully to the compassionate companions who had gathered around her.
- The thorns were set beside the crown, however it is possible that some of them were saved as mementos of the crucifixion.
- The Lord’s face was almost unrecognizable due to the amount of blood and wounds that had been applied to it.
- The blood had coagulated in the shattered hair on his head and beard.
- Mary cleansed the victim’s head and face and used sponges to soak up the dried blood from her hair.
- During the washing process, the terrible injustices that Jesus had suffered became more obvious, evoking feelings of compassion, grief, and kindness in her as she moved from wound to wound.
- She wiped the blood from the wounds on her head, from the broken eyes, from the nose, and from the ears with a sponge and a small piece of linen wrapped around the fingers of her right hand.
- She cleansed the half-opened mouth, the tongue, the teeth, and the lips with a small piece of linen held between her forefinger and the tip of her index finger.
- She split the strands of His hair that were still left into three halves.
- Three pieces of the puzzle landed on either side of the head, with the third falling over the back.
- She stroked behind His ears the front hair, which she had disengaged and cleansed before doing so.
- After washing the sacred head completely, the Blessed Virgin kissed the cheeks and wrapped her arms around the sacred head.
- Her attention was then focused to the Sacred Body’s neck, shoulders, breasts, and back, as well as the arms and the bloodied hands that had been pulled from their sockets.
- It was only then that the horrible state to which it had been reduced was shown in all its misery.
- Dislocated and stretched were the bones of the breast as well as all of the nerves in the area, resulting in the bones being stiff and inflexible.
- The shoulder on which Jesus had carried the heavy cross had been lacerated to the point where it had become one large wound, and the entire top half of his body was covered in welts and scars caused by the scourges they had used.
- In the left breast, there was a little wound where the tip of Cassius’s spear had penetrated through, and in the right side, the large, broad wound produced by the lance had been opened, piercing His heart from the inside out.
- Mary cleaned and purified all of the wounds, while Magdalen, kneeling before her, periodically offered aid, but she remained at Jesus’ feet for the most of the time, cleaning them for the final time, more with tears than with water, and wiping them with her hair.
- All of the Lord’s blood had been removed from his head, upper body, and feet at this point.
- In Mary’s lap, the Sacred Body sat, its skin bluish white and shimmering like blood-soaked flesh, with brown streaks of coagulated blood that appeared like red moles and red laces where the skin had been ripped off here and there.
The Blessed Virgin covered the body parts while they were being cleansed and then began embalming the wounds, starting with those on the head, until they were completely healed.The holy ladies each knelt by her in turn, each handing her a box from which she removed something like salve or precious ointment with her fingertip and thumb of her right hand, and with which she filled and anointed all the wounds.It seems to me that she applied some to the hair as well, and I saw her take the hands of Jesus in her own left hand, kissing them gently, before filling the large wounds formed by the nails with the ointment or pleasant spices.The ears, nose, and incision on Jesus’ side were all filled with the same substance as well.
Magdalen was primarily concerned with the feet of Jesus, which she did with great diligence.She cleansed and anointed them repeatedly, only to bedew them with her tears again and again, and she knelt for extended periods of time with her face pressed against theirs.When the Blessed Virgin had finished anointing all of the wounds, she wrapped the sacred head in linen, but she did not yet remove the covering for the face, which was attached to the covering for the head at the time.She gently pressed her fingers on Jesus’s half-broken eyes, and she held her hand there for a short time longer.Then she closed her mouth and hugged the Sacred Body of her Son, allowing her face to rest atop His while bitter tears streamed down her cheeks.
- Magdalen’s awe for Jesus did not allow her to come close enough to His face to kiss Him.
- When John approached the Blessed Virgin with the plea that she allow them to take the corpse of Jesus so that they might proceed with the preparations for the burial because the Sabbath was approaching, Joseph and Nicodemus had already been standing at a distance for some time.
Who took Jesus off the cross? What were the names of the other two guys beside Jesus?
In Matthew 27:57-60, we learn that a man called Joseph petitioned Pilate to have the corpse of Jesus taken away and buried in a tomb that he had purchased.Joseph was a religious leader who, in contrast to the other of Jesus’ companions, did not want Jesus to die.Joseph was a devout disciple of Jesus Christ who lived a life of integrity.
- Additionally, we learn in John 19:38-42 that another man called Nicodemus assisted Joseph in the placement of Jesus’ body in the tomb.
- The spices and ointments he carried with him were intended to keep the body from stinking too unpleasant.
- The answer to the second inquiry, ″May you tell me the names of the other two people who were with Jesus?″ can be found in Luke 23:39-42.
- The names of the two convicts who stood next to Jesus are not given to us in the chapter, but we do know that one of them believed that Jesus was the Son of God, according to the verse.
- A few moments before Jesus’ death, he pleads with Jesus to ″remember″ him when He comes into His kingdom.
- He assured him that he would be with him in paradise as a result of his response.
- This demonstrates to us that God’s mercy is extended to anybody who chooses Jesus as their Savior, regardless of their previous actions!
Questions for Bible study groups
- What is the significance of Jesus’ feet still being attached to the cross?
- What do the colors of Mary in blue, Magdalene in red, and the golden fleur-de-lys represent?
- What were the identities of Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus?
Jesus returned to the arms of his mother
‘And now, when the evening had come, Joseph of Arimathaea, an honorable counsellor, who is likewise looking forward to the coming of the kingdom of God, arrived and stepped boldly into Pilate’s presence, pleading for the body of Jesus…And he went out and got some fine linen and brought him down’ (See Mark 15:42-46.) While is customary in depictions of the Deposition, Christ’s feet remain firmly planted on the cross even as his body is lowered.You may imagine this would have been done the other way around, but loosening the feet first would have meant that the wrists and hands would have had to bear the whole weight of Jesus’ body, which would almost certainly have resulted in the flesh of Jesus’ hands being peeled away from his bones.
- Instead, Joseph of Arimathaea, who is on the lowest rungs of his ladder, is supporting the body from below, and Nicodemus, who is higher up, is holding tight to the transverse beam with his left arm while steadiing the corpse with his right arm.
- As a result, the damaged corpse can be gently put into the waiting arms of his mother and other family members and friends.
- When the mantle that had been draped over the Virgin’s head in earlier scenes has been pushed aside, we see a very young mother (in reality, she must have been 46-8 years old) looking up affectionately and reaching out to embrace her son, whose right arm had dropped limply on her shoulder.
- Another lady, maybe Mary Magdalene, stands on the other side of the altar, holding the Crown of Thorns in her reverently covered right hand and a white wimple in her left.
- An further woman (Mary Cleophas?) dressed in green cloak is with her, as is a young guy wielding two nails in his right hand.
- John is seen at the extreme left of the picture, staring at his deceased companion and master, who is also depicted.
- Beautiful arabesque shapes are formed by the figures, which are further accentuated by the ladders, the cross, and the twin peaks in the distance.
- Surfaces are gradually modulated by the artist, who gives them the type of gloss we saw in the Agony of the Commons.
- A stronger sense of sensitivity may be seen in the figures as well, particularly in the Virgin Mary.
Jesus is taken down from the Cross and given to his Mother
|Via Crucis, Scuola Veneta – Sec. XVIII Cattedrale – Padova THIRTEENTH STATIONJesus is taken down from the Cross and given to his Mother V/. Adoramus te, Christe, et benedicimus tibi. R/. Quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemisti mundum. From the Gospel according to Matthew 27:54-55 When the centurion and those who were with him, keeping watch over Jesus, saw the earthquake and what took place, they were filled with awe, and said, �Truly this was the Son of God!� There were also many women there, looking on from afar, who had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to him. MEDITATION Jesus is dead. From his heart, pierced by the lance of the Roman soldier, flow blood and water: a mysterious image of the stream of the sacraments, Baptism and the Eucharist, by which the Church is constantly reborn from the opened heart of the Lord. Jesus� legs are not broken, like those of the two men crucified with him. He is thus revealed as the true Paschal lamb, not one of whose bones must be broken (cf. Es 12:46). And now, at the end of his sufferings, it is clear that, for all the dismay which filled men�s hearts, for all the power of hatred and cowardice, he was never alone. There are faithful ones who remain with him. Under the Cross stand Mary, his Mother, the sister of his Mother, Mary, Mary Magdalen and the disciple whom he loved. A wealthy man, Joseph of Arimathea, appears on the scene: a rich man is able to pass through the eye of a needle, for God has given him the grace. He buries Jesus in his own empty tomb, in a garden. At Jesus�s burial, the cemetery becomes a garden, the garden from which Adam was cast out when he abandoned the fullness of life, his Creator. The garden tomb symbolizes that the dominion of death is about to end. A member of the Sanhedrin also comes along, Nicodemus, to whom Jesus had proclaimed the mystery of rebirth by water and the Spirit. Even in the Sanhedrin, which decreed his death, there is a believer, someone who knows and recognizes Jesus after his death. In this hour of immense grief, of darkness and despair, the light of hope is mysteriously present. The hidden God continues to be the God of life, ever near. Even in the night of death, the Lord continues to be our Lord and Saviour. The Church of Jesus Christ, his new family, begins to take shape. PRAYER Lord, you descended into the darkness of death. But your body is placed in good hands and wrapped in a white shroud (Mt 27:59). Faith has not completely died; the sun has not completely set. How often does it appear that you are asleep? How easy it is for us to step back and say to ourselves: �God is dead�. In the hour of darkness, help us to know that you are still there. Do not abandon us when we are tempted to lose heart. Help us not to leave you alone. Give us the fidelity to withstand moments of confusion and a love ready to embrace you in your utter helplessness, like your Mother, who once more holds you to her breast. Help us, the poor and rich, simple and learned, to look beyond all our fears and prejudices, and to offer you our abilities, our hearts and our time, and thus to prepare a garden for the Resurrection. All: Pater noster, qui es in c�lis: sanctificetur nomen tuum; adveniat regnum tuum; fiat voluntas tua, sicut in c�lo, et in terra. Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie; et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris; et ne nos inducas in tentationem; sed libera nos a malo. Vidit suum dulcem Natum morientem, desolatum, cum emisit spiritum. � Copyright 2005 – Libreria Editrice Vaticana|
Jesus is Taken Down from the Cross – Shameless Popery
V.Adoramus te, Christe, et benedicimus tibi (We love you, Christ, and we bless you).R.
- Quia per sanctam crucem tuam redemisti mundum, tuam redemisti mundum.
- Mark 15:42-43, 46, according to Pope John Paul II And when the evening had arrived, Joseph of Arimathea, a distinguished member of the council who was likewise on a quest for the kingdom of God, went out and purchased a linen shroud, after which he carried the corpse of Jesus down from the Cross.
|Willem Key, Lamentation of Christ (16th c.)|
In our minds’ eye, when the body of Jesus is taken down from the Cross and placed in his Mother’s arms for the first time, we see the moment when Mary accepted the message delivered by the angel Gabriel: ″And behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Jesus; and the Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and of his kingdom there will be no end″ (Lk 1:31-33).The simple response of Mary (Lk 1:38), as if she wished to convey what she was feeling at the time, was a sign of her readiness to do so now.In the mystery of the Redemption, grace – God’s gift to mankind – is intertwined with a ″price″ paid by the human heart, which is symbolized by the cross.
- The gift from on high (Jas 1:17) and the ransom paid by the Son of God are both a source of blessing and a source of redemption in this mystery.
- (Jas 1:17) (cf.
- 1 Cor 6:20; 7:23; Acts 20:28).
- And Mary, who more than anybody has benefited from gifts, is the one who pays the most.
- She did it from the bottom of her heart.
- The astonishing promise made by Simeon during the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple is inextricably linked to this mystery: ″And a sword will pierce through your heart, so that the thoughts of many hearts may be exposed″ (Lk 2:35).
- Additionally, this promise has been fulfilled.
- How many human hearts have bled for the heart of this Mother, who has paid a terrible price for her children!
- When Jesus was born in the stable in Bethlehem (cf.
- Lk 2:16), during the escape into Egypt (cf.
- Mt 2:14), and in Nazareth, he was wrapped in her arms, just as he had been at those times (cf.
- Lk 2:39-40).
- Acknowledgement of Pietà We stretch our arms to Life himself with you, O Mary, Mother of inexpressible grief, and we humbly implore him to accept our plea: Eleison, R.

|Pietro Lorenzetti, Deposition of Christ from the Cross (1320)|
Jesus is no longer alive.He has a wound in his heart, punctured by the spear of a Roman soldier.The blood and water that pour from his wound are a mystical symbol of the stream that flows from the Lord’s heart via the sacraments of Baptism and the Eucharist, by which the Church is perpetually renewed.
- The legs of Jesus, unlike the legs of the two other men who were crucified with him, are not broken.
- As a result, he is exposed as the actual Paschal lamb, none of whose bones must be shattered in order for him to be sacrificed (cf.
- Es 12:46).
- And now, at the conclusion of his ordeal, it is apparent that, despite the dismay that filled men’s souls, despite the strength of hatred and fear, he was never truly alone in their hearts.
- There are others that are loyal to him and remain with him.
- He is surrounded by Mary, his Mother, Mary Magdalene, and the disciple whom he adored, all of whom are seated beneath the Cross of Christ.
- Joseph of Arimathea, a wealthy man, enters on the scene: a wealthy man is able to pass through the eye of a needle because God has granted him the grace to do this feat.
- In a garden, he entombs Jesus in his own empty tomb, which he built himself.
- When Jesus is laid to rest, the cemetery is transformed into a garden, the Eden from which Adam was expelled when he turned his back on the source of all life, his Creator.
- The garden tomb is a symbol of the end of death’s reign of terror over the world.
- Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin, is also there, and it was to him that Jesus had first revealed the secret of rebirth via water and the Spirit.
- The Sanhedrin, which ordered his execution, included a believer, someone who knows and recognizes Jesus even after his death.
- In the midst of enormous pain, darkness, and despair, the light of hope appears to be there in a surprising way.
- The hidden God continues to remain the God of life, who is always close at hand.
- Although we are in the darkness of death, the Lord is still our Lord and Savior.
- The Church of Jesus Christ, his new family, takes shape as he preaches and teaches.
- PRAYER You, Lord, have plunged into the depths of death’s darkness.
- Your corpse, on the other hand, has been placed in excellent care and is shrouded in a white shroud (Mt 27:59).
Faith has not totally died, and the sun has not completely set on this world yet either.Approximately how many times does it look like you are sleeping?It’s amazing how quickly we may take a step back and declare, ″God is no longer alive.″ Please allow us to know that you are still present throughout the hours of darkness.Please do not desert us when we are tempted to give up hope.Please assist us in ensuring that you are not left alone.As your Mother does again, give us the faithfulness to endure periods of perplexity and a love ready to embrace you in your entire helplessness, as if we were your Mother again, nursing you to health at her breast.
- Help us, the poor and the affluent, the simple and the learned, to go past all of our fears and prejudices and to offer you our skills, our hearts, and our time, and in this way, we will create a garden for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Pater noster, et cetera Our Father, who art in Heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name, Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven, said the Spirit of God.Give us our daily bread on this day, and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but rescue us from harm; we beseech you.She looked at her gentle Child, saw Him hang in desolation, and waited till His spirit was summoned.
Why Did Pontius Pilate Have Jesus Executed?
″What is truth?″ Pontius Pilate asks Jesus of Nazareth in the Gospel of John, and Jesus responds with a question.It’s a question that may be raised regarding Pilate’s own personal background as well.As told in the New Testament of the Christian Bible, the Roman ruler of Judea appeared to be a shaky judge who originally exonerated Jesus before bowing to public pressure and executing him on the orders of the mob.
- Non-Biblical sources, on the other hand, present him as a barbaric commander who wilfully rejected the traditions of the Jewish people under his command.
- Which version of the truth was correct?
- WATCH: JESUS: A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE Vault
Pilate’s early life is a mystery.
Before his time as Roman governor of Judea, from 26 and 36 A.D., nothing is known about Pilate’s early life and career.It is believed that he was born into an equestrian family in Italy, however some tales indicate that he was actually born in Scotland, rather than Italy.From the Jewish philosopher Philo of Alexandria emerges one of the earliest—and most damning—accounts of Pilate’s reign as governor.
- Around the year 50 A.D., he denounced the prefect for ″briberies, insults, robberies, outrages and wanton injuries, executions without trial, constantly repeated, endless and extremely severe brutality,″ among other things.
- The early Christian historian Stephen J.
- Patterson, who teaches early Christianity at Willamette University and is the author of several books including The Forgotten Creed: Christianity’s Original Struggle Against Bigotry, Slavery, and Sexism, says that Philo describes Pilate’s rule as ″corrupt and full of bribery.″ Although such behavior would not have been out of the norm in the case of a Roman emperor, Pilate appears to have done so with greater ruthlessness than usual.″ But, as Helen Bond, dean of the University of Edinburgh’s School of Divinity and author of Pontius Pilate in History and Interpretation, points out, it’s difficult to determine how historically accurate Philo’s tale truly was in the first place.
- ″Philo is a really dramatic writer,″ she observes, ″and one who has very apparent biases: persons who maintain Jewish rules are documented in highly favorable ways, whereas people who do not uphold Jewish laws are represented in quite bad ways.
- Given Pilate’s resistance to Jewish law, Philo depicts him as ″very severe″ in his description.
- READ MORE: The Bible Claims That Jesus Was a Real Person.
- Is there any further evidence?
Pilate clashed with the Jewish population in Jerusalem.
As part of his account, Philo claims that Pilate allowed a pair of golden shields emblazoned with the name of the Roman Emperor Tiberius to be brought into King Herod’s former residence in Jerusalem, in defiance of Jewish tradition.Writing more than a half-century later, the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus related a similar story, claiming that Pilate let troops bearing military standards with the likeness of the emperor into Jerusalem, despite Jewish law prohibiting the carrying of images in the holy city.A large number of people journeyed to the Judean city of Caesarea to express their displeasure, and they laid prostrate outside Pilate’s palace for five days until he finally yielded.
- Because Josephus was born in Jerusalem the year Pilate resigned, Bond believes he would have had ″pretty good information,″ according to the historian.
- This account has the ring of a rookie governor experimenting with his powers and entirely underestimating the depth of local opposition to graven images.
- However, Bond points out that the incident demonstrates his readiness to back down and to heed public opinion in the long run.
- Josephus related another event, this one with a bloodier conclusion, in which Pilate used cash from the Temple treasury to construct an aqueduct to provide water to Jerusalem.
- When demonstrators gathered again, Pilate despatched plain-clothed soldiers to enter the mob.
- They were successful.
- When he gave the signal, they withdrew clubs disguised in their clothing and beat many of the demonstrators to death with the clubs they had removed.

The Gospels portray an indecisive Pilate.
Pilate allowed a pair of gold shields bearing the name of the Roman Emperor Tiberius to be brought into King Herod’s former residence in Jerusalem, which was a breach of Jewish rules, according to Philo.Writing more than a half-century later, the Jewish historian Flavius Josephus related a similar story, claiming that Pilate let troops bearing military standards depicting the likeness of the emperor into Jerusalem, despite Jewish law prohibiting the presence of images in the holy city.For five days, a large throng gathered in the Judean capital of Caesarea to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with Pilate’s actions.
- Eventually, Pilate surrendered.
- Because Josephus was born in Jerusalem the year Pilate resigned, Bond believes he would have had ″fairly reliable knowledge.″ This account had the ring of a rookie governor experimenting with his authority and grossly underestimating the power of local opinion when it comes to graven pictures.
- ″ Bond points out that the narrative demonstrates his readiness to back down and respect public opinion at the same time.
- According to Josephus, another event occurred in which Pilate took cash from the Temple treasury in order to construct an aqueduct to provide water to Jerusalem.
- This episode resulted in a bloodier conclusion.
- It was at this point that Pilate despatched plainclothes troops to enter the protestors’ encampment.
- When he gave the signal, they withdrew clubs disguised in their clothing and beat many of the demonstrators to death with their clubs.
- More information may be found at: Where is the Head of Saint John the Baptist located?
Pilate disappears from history after his rule.
After employing disproportionate force to quell a possible Samaritan uprising, according to Josephus and the Roman historian Tacitus, Pilate was dismissed from office and exiled to the city of Rome.Pilate vanished from the historical record as soon as he arrived in Rome.His execution by the Emperor Caligula or his suicide, with his body being thrown into the Tiber River, are two theories that have been floated around.
- In fact, the early Christian author Tertullian said that Pilate had become a disciple of Jesus and had attempted to convert the emperor to Christian beliefs.
- Archaeologists in Caesarea uncovered concrete proof of Pilate’s presence in 1961, according to the Associated Press.
- A portion of a carved stone with Pilate’s name and title etched in Latin on it was discovered face down in an antique theater, where it had been used as a stair.
- According to the evidence available, the ″Pilate Stone″ was initially intended to be used as a dedication plaque for another construction.
- According to a November 2018 article in the Israel Exploration Journal, improved photography showed Pilate’s name engraved in Greek on a 2,000-year-old copper alloy ring found at Herodium, which was previously thought to be a Roman coin.

It was the top priests and the elders that devised their plot against Jesus in order to have him executed.His captors bound him up, marched him away, and gave him over to Pilate, the governor of the Roman Empire.″Do you claim to be the king of the Jews?″ Pilate inquired of Jesus.
- In response to the charges of the top priests and elders, Jesus responded with ″So you say,″ but he said nothing in response to Pilate’s questions about his silence.
- At the Passover celebration, the Roman governor had the authority to release a prisoner selected by the people.
- This copper etching depicting Jesus being brought before Pilate was released around 1850.
- Pilate asked the audience if they wanted Barabbas or Jesus released, and the multitude chose Jesus.
- The chief priest encouraged the multitude to petition Pilate to release Barabbas and execute Jesus in exchange for their support.
- They chanted for Pilate to execute him on the cross.
- After noticing that there was the possibility of a riot, Pilate stood out in front of the crowd and declared, ″I am not responsible for the murder of this man!″ ″Let the burden for his death fall on us and on our children!″ said the entire audience in response.
- After that, Pilate released Barabbas and brought Jesus up to be executed on the cross.
Now that the Jewish officials have determined that Jesus is guilty of a crime deserving of death, they must present him to the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate, for execution.Because Palestine is an occupied nation, only the Romans have the authority to put someone to death.This explains why Jesus is subjected to two separate trials.
- The Sanhedrin has convicted Jesus guilty of blasphemy, a religious offense against the Jewish people.
- This would be of little interest to the Romans, therefore the Jewish leaders must modify the allegation against Jesus from claiming to be the Son of God to claiming that he is the King of the Jews, which would be of greater interest to them.
- They are emphasizing the political consequences of claiming to be the Messiah rather than the theological ramifications of such a claim.
- Romans were quick to respond to political offenses, particularly if they were perceived to be an existential danger to Roman sovereignty.
Understanding the text
- The Jewish authorities must now transport Jesus to the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate, after concluding that he has committed a crime deserving of the death penalty. Only the Romans have the authority to execute someone in Palestine since it is an occupied nation. The reason Jesus had to go through two tribulations is explained in this passage. Christ was declared to be guilty of blasphemy by the Sanhedrin, the Jewish religious tribunal. Due to the fact that the Romans are uninterested in this, the Jewish leaders must alter the allegation against Jesus from claiming to be the Son of God to claiming that he is the King of Israel. They are emphasizing the political consequences of claiming to be the Messiah rather than the theological connotations. Rome would retaliate against those who committed political crimes, particularly those who threatened Roman authority.
For the sake of preserving his position as governor, Pilate releases a guilty man and then has Jesus flogged before handing him over to be killed.

Denial of Peter – Wikipedia
According to the four Gospels of the New Testament, the Apostle Peter committed three acts of denial against Jesus, collectively known as the Denial of Peter (also known as Peter’s Denial).As recorded in all four of the Canonical Gospels, at Jesus’ Last Supper with his followers, he predicts that Peter would deny knowledge of him, claiming that Peter will reject him before the rooster crows the next morning.As a result of Jesus’ imprisonment, Peter denied knowing him three times.
- However, after the third denial, Peter heard the rooster crow and remembered the prophecy as Jesus turned to gaze directly at him.
- Peter then burst into tears of frustration.
- The Repentance of Peter is the name given to this final occurrence.
- For ages, important works of art have shown the tumultuous emotions that accompanied Peter’s rejection and subsequent remorse.
- For example, Caravaggio’s Denial of Saint Peter, which is now on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is a good example.
- This episode has inspired sequences in different films about the life and death of Jesus Christ (for example, when Francesco De Vito played Peter in The Passion of the Christ) and references in musical compositions, both religious and secular, that have been inspired by the occurrence.
When Jesus predicted during the Last Supper that Peter would deny and disown him, he was referring to the events recorded in the Gospel of Matthew 26:33–35, the Gospel of Mark 14:29–31, the Gospel of Luke 22:33–34, and, most recently, the Gospel of John 18:15–27.The narratives of Jesus’ denial in the Gospels are distinct from one another.According to the Gospel of Matthew, Peter said, ″Even though the whole world turns against you because of you, I will never abandon you.″ If you don’t disavow me three times this evening, you will disown me three times the next morning, Jesus said.
- ″I tell you the truth,″ Jesus said in response.
- Nevertheless, Peter stated, ″Even if it means dying with you, I would never abandon you.″ All of the other disciples agreed with this statement.
- Jesus was taken into custody later that night.
- The following is the text of the first rejection to a servant girl in Luke 22:54–57: Then they apprehended him and took him away, taking him into the residence of the high priest.
- Peter kept a safe distance between them, and after they had built a fire in the middle of the courtyard and sat down together, Peter joined them in their seated position.
- A servant girl happened to see him sitting there in the dim light of the fireplace.
- ″This man was with him,″ she stated after taking a good look at him.
- ″This man was with him.″ He, on the other hand, disputed it.
- ″Woman, I’m not familiar with him,″ he said.
- According to Mark 14:69–70, the second denial to the same girl is as follows: ″When the servant girl noticed him there, she exclaimed again to others standing about, ″This person is one of them.″ He denied it once more.
- According to Matthew 26:73–75, the third rejection to a number of individuals is forceful, and he swears as he does so: After a short while, others who were still waiting there approached Peter and stated, ″Surely you are one of them, because your accent reveals your identity.″ Then he began calling down curses on himself, and he vowed to them, ″I don’t know the man!″ He then began to curse himself.
- Immediately, a rooster began to crow.
- That’s when Peter remembered the words Jesus had said to him earlier: ″You will repudiate me three times before the rooster crows.″ And then he walked outside and sobbed uncontrollably.
- The following is how the Gospel of Luke recounts the time of the last denial: Luke 22:59–62 A few minutes after that, another person stated, ″Certainly this man was with him, for he is a Galilean.″ ″Man, I haven’t got a clue what you’re talking about!″ Peter said.
- The rooster crows right as he finishes his sentence.
- In a sudden turn, the Lord fixed Peter with his gaze.
- ″You will repudiate me three times before the rooster crows today,″ the Lord had spoken to Peter earlier.
- Peter remembered what the Lord had said to him.
And then he walked outside and sobbed uncontrollably.The story of the three rejections is given in the Gospel of John 18:13–27, which is as follows: In the company of another disciple, Simon Peter followed Jesus.Because this disciple was well-known to the high priest, he was permitted to accompany Jesus inside the high priest’s courtyard, but Peter was required to remain outside at the entrance, waiting for Jesus.The other disciple, who was well-known to the high priest, returned, talked with the girl who was on duty at the time, and led Peter inside the temple.″You aren’t one
