Mark 15:22-32 comments; The scene at the Cross

22 ¶  And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.


Golgotha is the Aramaic word while Calvary is from the Latin. Interpreted is translated as in an interpreter at the U.N.


23  And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.

24  And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.


Psalm 22:18  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.


25  And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.


This is nine o’clock in the morning.


26  And the superscription of his accusation was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.

27  And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.


The entire human race is on a cross. Either you are on his left hand or on his right. One will receive Him and one will reject.


28  And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors.


Isaiah 53:12  Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.


29  And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, 30  Save thyself, and come down from the cross.


Proverbs 22:7  All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, 8  He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.


31  Likewise also the chief priests mocking said among themselves with the scribes, He saved others; himself he cannot save. 32  Let Christ the King of Israel descend now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him.


In Luke we find that one of the malefactors hanging on the crosses on either side of Jesus believed on Him.
