Jesus is taunted and subjected to the crown of thorns and the purple robe.

His opponents beat Him and slapped Him and ultimately crucified him between two thieves, placing a sign on His cross that read, “THIS IS THE KING OF ISRAEL”.

His garments were divided and the executioners gambled for them. At the death of Jesus, the veil of the Temple was torn in two, and the sky became dark.

Jesus was later removed from the cross and taken to Joseph’s tomb.

The Gospel of Peter (150-200AD) The Gospel of Peter was first discovered by the French archaeologist, Urbain Bouriant in 1886.

The text also affirms the Old Testament prophetic predictions related to Jesus and the Biblical notion that only those who hear and believe are saved.
