A man named Simon from Cyrene, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was coming from the fields to the city. The soldiers forced Simon to carry the cross for Jesus. They led Jesus to the place called Golgotha, which means the Place of the Skull. The soldiers tried to give Jesus wine mixed with myrrh to drink, but he refused. The soldiers crucified Jesus and divided his clothes among themselves, throwing lots to decide what each soldier would get.
It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified Jesus. There was a sign with this charge against Jesus written on it: The King of The Jews. (Mark 15: 21-26; NCV)
