<< John 19:8 >>



  • Acts 14:11-19
    When the crowds saw what Paul had done, they shouted, saying in the Lycaonian language,“ The gods have come down to us in human form!”Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul, Hermes, because he was the chief speaker.The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the town, brought bulls and wreaths to the gates because he intended, with the crowds, to offer sacrifice.The apostles Barnabas and Paul tore their robes when they heard this and rushed into the crowd, shouting,“ People! Why are you doing these things? We are people also, just like you, and we are proclaiming good news to you, that you turn from these worthless things to the living God, who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and everything in them.In past generations he allowed all the nations to go their own way,although he did not leave himself without a witness, since he did what is good by giving you rain from heaven and fruitful seasons and filling you with food and your hearts with joy.”Even though they said these things, they barely stopped the crowds from sacrificing to them.Some Jews came from Antioch and Iconium, and when they won over the crowds, they stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, thinking he was dead.
  • John 19:13
    When Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus outside. He sat down on the judge’s seat in a place called the Stone Pavement( but in Aramaic, Gabbatha).
