Read John 19 today.

This is the chapter that tells the story of Jesus’ crucifixion.
It is easy to read a chapter like this without letting the words touch us. We can read it for the sake of learning more information. We can read the story without entering it. We let the words of verse 16 become the whole story.
I suggest reading this chapter again, slowly. Put yourself in the place of one witnessing the story. See the events in your mind’s eye. What do you see? What do you hear? What do you smell?
John 19:16 NLT
Then Pilate turned Jesus over to them to be crucified. So they took Jesus away.
