Silent Witness:  The Robe

 

Luke 23:1-12 (NRSV)

1Then the assembly rose as a body and brought Jesus before Pilate.  2They began to accuse him, saying, “We found this man perverting our nation, forbidding us to pay taxes to the emperor, and saying that he himself is the Messiah, a king.”  3Then Pilate asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”  He answered, “You say so.”  4Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, “I find no basis for an accusation against this man.”  5But they were insistent and said, “He stirs up the people by teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee where he began even to this place.”  6When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean.  7And when he learned that he was under Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him off to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time.  8When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had been wanting to see him for a long time, because he had heard about him and was hoping to see him perform some sign.  9He questioned him at some length, but Jesus gave him no answer.  10The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing him.  11Even Herod with his soldiers treated him with contempt and mocked him; then he put an elegant robe on him and sent him back to Pilate.  12That same day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other; before this they had been enemies.

Silent Witness:  The Nail

 

John 19:17-22 (NRSV)

17and carrying the cross by himself, he went out to what is called The Place of the Skull, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha.  18There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, with Jesus between them.

19Pilate also had an inscription written and put on the cross. It read, “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.”  20Many of the Jews read this inscription, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, and in Greek.  21Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, “Do not write, ‘The King of the Jews,’ but, ‘This man said, I am King of the Jews.’”  22Pilate answered, “What I have written I have written.”

Silent Witness:  The Spear

 

John 19:31-37 (NRSV)

31Since it was the day of Preparation, the Jews did not want the bodies left on the cross during the sabbath, especially because that sabbath was a day of great solemnity.  So, they asked Pilate to have the legs of the crucified men broken and the bodies removed.  32Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who had been crucified with him.  33But when they came to Jesus and saw that he was already dead, they did not break his legs.  34Instead, one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once blood and water came out.  35(He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe.  His testimony is true, and he knows that he tells the truth.)  36These things occurred so that the scripture might be fulfilled, “None of his bones shall be broken.”  37And again another passage of scripture says, “They will look on the one whom they have pierced.”

Silent Witness:  The Stone

 

Matthew 27:62-28:10 (NRSV)

62The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate 63and said, “Sir, we remember what that impostor said while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise again.’

64Therefore command the tomb to be made secure until the third day; otherwise his disciples may go and steal him away, and tell the people, ‘He has been raised from the dead,’ and the last deception would be worse than the first.”  65Pilate said to them, “You have a guard of soldiers; go, make it as secure as you can.”  66So they went with the guard and made the tomb secure by sealing the stone.

1After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb.  2And suddenly there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord, descending from heaven, came and rolled back the stone and sat on it.  3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow.  4For fear of him the guards shook and became like dead men.  5But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.  6He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay.  7Then go quickly and tell his disciples, ‘He has been raised from the dead, and indeed he is going ahead of you to Galilee; there you will see him.’ This is my message for you.”  8So they left the tomb quickly with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.  9Suddenly Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!”  And they came to him, took hold of his feet, and worshiped him.  10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.”
