You who would destroy the temple and build it in three days, 30 save yourself, and come down from the cross!’ 31 In the same way the chief priests, along with the scribes, were also mocking him among themselves and saying, ‘He saved others; he cannot save himself. 32 Let the Messiah,[c] the King of Israel, come down from the cross now, so that we may see and believe.’ Those who were crucified with him also taunted him.
