Scriptures Fulfilled

And they bring him unto the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. Mark 15:22

Golgotha (Aramaic), which is the hill that Jesus was crucified on, is also referenced as Calvary (Latin) in the book of Luke. The hill was called this because the hill itself looked like a skull, which is where the word Gogotha originated in Aramaic.

Jesus after beaten was forced to carry his own cross all the way to Golgotha, which is believe to be about a mile. The journey was so brutal, they forced a spectator named Simon to help Jesus make it all the way.

 

And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not. And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. Mark 15:23-24

Both of these events actually fulfilled more Biblical prophecies:

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

Psalm 22:18 They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment.

And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors Mark 15:27-28

Isaiah 53:12 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.

And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, Save thyself, and come down from the cross. Mark 15:29-30

Psalm 22:7 All who see me mock me; they hurl insults, shaking their heads

Psalm 109:25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads.
