When the soldiers, officials, and high priests saw that Jesus was dead, they laughed and mocked. Mathew 27:41-43, "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself! He's the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, 'I am the Son of God."
