Therefore at that time he delivered Him to them that He might be crucified. Therefore they took Jesus.
And bearing the cross for Himself, He went out to the place called the Place of a Skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha,

At Golgotha, “they crucified Him, and with Him two others, one on this side and one on that, and Jesus in the middle” (19:18). This was the fulfillment of the prophecy in Isaiah 53:12, which said that the Messiah would be “numbered with the transgressors.” He was not only put to death in a place of insult and shame, but also was ranked with transgressors, being dealt with as one of the transgressors.
