27:32 As they were going out, they found a man from Cyrene named Simon, whom they forced to carry his cross.
27:39 Those who passed by defamed him, shaking their heads
27:40 and saying, “You who can destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are God’s Son, come down from the cross!”
27:41 In the same way even the chief priests – together with the experts in the law and elders – were mocking him:
27:42 “He saved others, but he cannot save himself! He is the king of Israel! If he comes down now from the cross, we will believe in him!
27:43 He trusts in God – let God, if he wants to, deliver him now because he said, ‘I am God’s Son’!”
27:44 The robbers who were crucified with him also spoke abusively to him.
