Matthew 27:32-37

Note: this proposal parallels the journey of the soldiers from Pilate to sitting at Golgotha with reference to the cross and the accusation attached to it (AA’), and parallels two incidents that both fulfil OT prophecy (BB’). 

A. 32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.

B. 33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull, 34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.

C. 35 And they crucified him,

B’. and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

A’. 36 And sitting down they watched him there; 37 And set up over his head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
