When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called “The Pavement”, but in Hebrew, “Gabbatha.”
Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, at about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews, “Behold, your King!”
They cried out, “Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar!” So then he delivered him to them to be crucified.
So they took Jesus and led him away. He went out, bearing his cross,
to the place called “The Place of a Skull”, which is called in Hebrew, “Golgotha”, where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the middle.
Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. There was written, “JESUS OF NAZARETH ◆, THE KING OF THE JEWS.”
Therefore many of the Jews read this title, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city;
He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”
He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.”
He said to me, “It is done! “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.
I will give freely to him who is thirsty from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes, I will give him these things. I will be his God, and he will be my son.
But for the cowardly, unbelieving, sinners, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their part is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls, who were loaded with the seven last plagues came, and he spoke with me, saying, “Come here. I will show you the wife, the Lamb’s bride.”
He carried me away in the Spirit to a great and high mountain, and showed me the holy city, Jerusalem ◆, coming down out of heaven from God, having the glory of God.
