2. (Coins) Matthew 26: 14-15

Then one of the twelve disciples, named Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and asked, "What will you give me if I betray Jesus to you?" They counted out thirty silver coins and gave them to him.

They put a purple robe on Jesus.

4. (Thorns) Matthew 27:29

5. (Scourge-a small piece of rope or thick string) Mark 15:15

Pilate wanted to please the crowd, so he set Barabbas free for them. Then he had Jesus whipped and handed Him over to be crucified.
