John 19 (The Message)

So Pilate took Jesus and had him whipped. The soldiers, having braided a crown from thorns, set it on his head, threw a purple robe over him, and approached him with, "Hail the King of the Jews!" Then they greeted him with slaps in the face. Pilate went back out again and said to them, "I present him to you, but I want you to know that I do not find him guilty of any crime." Just then Jesus came out wearing the crown and purple robe.
Pilate announced, "Here he is: The Man."
When the high preists and police saw him, they shouted in a frenzy, "Crucify! Crucify!"
Pilate told them, "You take him. You crucify him. I find nothing wrong with him."
The Jews answered, "We have a law, and by that law he must die because he claimed to be the son of God."
...
He sat down at the judgement seat in the area designated Stone Court. It was the preparation day for Passover. The hour was noon. Pilate said to the Jews, "Here is your king."
They shouted back "Kill him! Kill him! Crucify him!"
Pilate said, "I am to crucify your king?"
The high priests answered "We have no king but Caesar."
Pilate caved in to their demand. He turned him over to be crucified.

They took Jesus away. Carrying his cross, Jesus went out to the place called Skull Hill (Golgothat in Hebrew), where they crucified him, and with two others one on each side, Jesus in the middle. Pilate wrote a sign and had it placed on the cross. It read:

JESUS OF NAZARENE
KING OF THE JEWS.

...
A jug of sour wine was standing by. Someone put a sponge soaked with the wine on a javelin and lifted it to his mouth. After he took the wine, Jesus said, "It is finished." Bowing his head, he offered up his spirit.

wow ... you know I've heard all of that so many times and yet everytime I hear it, it makes me stop and think about what he did for me and what I seem to fall so short of when it comes to the things I should do for him....
Well thanks for posting that I needed it ..
