Mark 15:24

Context
15:24 Then 1  they crucified 2  him and divided his clothes, throwing dice 3  for them, to decide what each would take.

Luke 23:33

Context
23:33 So 4  when they came to the place that is called “The Skull,” 5  they crucified 6  him there, along with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

John 19:18

Context
19:18 There they 7  crucified 8  him along with two others, 9  one on each side, with Jesus in the middle.

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “then” to indicate the implied sequence of events within the narrative.

2 sn See the note on Crucify in 15:13.

3 tn Grk “by throwing the lot” (probably by using marked pebbles or broken pieces of pottery). A modern equivalent, “throwing dice,” was chosen here because of its association with gambling. According to L&N 6.219 a term for “dice” is particularly appropriate.

sn An allusion to Ps 22:18.

4 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “so” to indicate the conclusion of the preceding material.

5 sn The place that is calledThe Skull’ (known as Golgotha in Aramaic, cf. John 19:17) is north and just outside of Jerusalem. The hill on which it is located protruded much like a skull, giving the place its name. The Latin word for Greek κρανίον (kranion) is calvaria, from which the English word “Calvary” derives (cf. Luke 23:33 in the KJV).

6 sn See the note on crucify in 23:21.

7 tn Grk “where they.” This is a continuation of the previous verse in Greek, but contemporary English style tends toward shorter sentences. A literal translation would result in a lengthy and awkward English sentence.

8 sn See the note on Crucify in 19:6.

9 tn Grk “and with him two others.”
