THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MATTHEW - Chapter 27 - Verse 38

Verse 38. Two thieves crucified, etc. Rather, two robbers. Pilate did not reside in Jerusalem, When he came there on the great feasts, or at other times, it was, in part, to hold courts for the trial of criminals. These robbers had been probably condemned at that time; and to show greater contempt for Jesus, he was crucified between men of that abandoned character, and on a cross that should have been occupied by their companion and leader, Barabbas.

{g} "crucified" Isa 53:12
