Matthew 27:27-54 (NIV)
27  Then the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. 28  They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, 29  and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. “Hail, king of the Jews!” they said. 30  They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. 31  After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. 32  As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. 33  They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). 34  There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35  When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. 36  And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. 37  Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS. 38  Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. 39  Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads 40  and saying, “You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!” 41  In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. 42  “He saved others,” they said, “but he can’t save himself! He’s the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. 43  He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.'” 44  In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. 45  From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. 46  About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?”–which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” 47  When some of those standing there heard this, they said, “He’s calling Elijah.” 48  Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. 49  The rest said, “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to save him.” 50  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. 51  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. 52  The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. 53  They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus’ resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. 54  When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, “Surely he was the Son of God!”

Psalm 69:21 (NIV)
21  They put gall in my food and gave me vinegar for my thirst.

Deuteronomy 21:23 (NIV)
23  you must not leave his body on the tree overnight. Be sure to bury him that same day, because anyone who is hung on a tree is under God’s curse.

Psalm 22:18 (NIV)
18  They divide my garments among them and cast lots for my clothing.

Isaiah 53:12 (NIV)
12  Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Amos 8:9-10 (NIV)
9  “In that day,” declares the Sovereign LORD, “I will make the sun go down at noon and darken the earth in broad daylight. 10  I will turn your religious feasts into mourning and all your singing into weeping. I will make all of you wear sackcloth and shave your heads. I will make that time like mourning for an only son and the end of it like a bitter day.

Hebrews 9:1-3 (NIV)
1  Now the first covenant had regulations for worship and also an earthly sanctuary. 2  A tabernacle was set up. In its first room were the lampstand, the table and the consecrated bread; this was called the Holy Place. 3  Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place,

Matthew 27:50-51 (NIV)
50  And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.
51  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split.

Hebrews 10:19-25 (NIV)
19  Therefore, brothers, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20  by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21  and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22  let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. 23  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24  And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. 25  Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
