Matthew 27:28-66 Crucifixion – There were seven basic people types at the crucifixion. We see Simon of Cyrene, those referred to as “they” – soldiers, passersby, chief priests, two thieves, many women, and Joseph of Arimathaea. What we will see is these seven types of people continue to be around the cross of Christ today.
