Notes on illustrations
Casting lots: The garment they were gambling for was his tunic (despite the NIV calling it his ‘undergarment’, this does not mean it was his underwear!)

Soldiers:Most Roman soldiers in Judaea were auxiliaries, not legionaries. They therefore wore mail and had oval shield, instead of the plate armour and rectangular shields of the legionaries.
Background:This changes to black when darkness falls, and remains symbolically dark until the resurrection morning.
