          Crucify Him! Pontius Pilate was confused. Why did they want to crucify Jesus? Pilate was persuaded, the decision was made, the trial was over.
          Jesus had to walk the path that weaves through Jerusalem up to the hill called Golgotha or Calvary, where he would be crucified. He had to carry his wooden cross about one half mile. The cross was big and heavy. Simon of Cyrene was in the crowd. The Roman soldiers ordered him to help Jesus of Nazareth carry his cross. It was a painful and sorrowful journey. A crown of thorns was placed on his head. After all, he was charged with claiming to be the King of the Jews.
          The path that Jesus had to walk was lined with an angry noisy crowd. Many struck Jesus as he walked past. Sweat and blood began to trickle down his back and arms. There were few friends in the crowd. Veronica was there. When Jesus passed, she held out her veil to him so that he could wipe his brow.
