2 John 1:6-11

6

This is love, that we walk according to His commandments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the beginning, you should walk in it.

7

For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.

8

Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.

9

Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

10

If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him;

11

for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.

Mark 15:22-25, 33-41

22

And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.

23

Then they gave Him wine mingled with myrrh to drink, but He did not take it.

24

And when they crucified Him, they divided His garments, casting lots for them to determine what every man should take.

25

Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him.

33

Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

34

And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

35

Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, “Look, He is calling for Elijah!”

36

Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink, saying, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to take Him down.”

37

And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.

38

Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.

39

So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!”

40

There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joses, and Salome,

41

who also followed Him and ministered to Him when He was in Galilee, and many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
