Jesus before Pilate1Then the whole body of them got up and a brought Him before Pilate. 2 b And they began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this man c misleading our nation and d forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is ▼Christ, a King.” 3So Pilate asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And He answered him and said, f “It is as you say.” 4Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds g “I find no guilt in this man.” 5But they kept on insisting, saying, “He stirs up the people, teaching all over Judea h starting from Galilee even as far as this place.” 6When Pilate heard it, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. 7And when he learned that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to i Herod, who himself also was in Jerusalem ▼
▼ Lit in these daysat that time.
Jesus before Herod8Now Herod was very glad when he saw Jesus; for k he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had been hearing about Him and was hoping to see some ▼
▼ Or attesting miraclesign performed by Him. 9And he questioned Him ▼
▼ Lit in many wordsat some length; but n He answered him nothing. 10And the chief priests and the scribes were standing there, accusing Him vehemently. 11And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, o dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. 12Now p Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been enemies with each other.
Pilate Seeks Jesus’ Release13Pilate summoned the chief priests and the q rulers and the people, 14and said to them, “You brought this man to me as one who r incites the people to rebellion, and behold, having examined Him before you, I s have found no guilt in this man regarding the charges which you make against Him. 15“No, nor has t Herod, for he sent Him back to us; and behold, nothing deserving death has been done by Him. 16“Therefore I will u punish Him and release Him.” 17[ ▼
▼ Early mss do not contain this vNow he was obliged to release to them at the feast one prisoner.] 18But they cried out all together, saying w “Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!” 19(He was one who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection made in the city, and for murder.) 20Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again, 21but they kept on calling out, saying, “Crucify, crucify Him!” 22And he said to them the third time, “Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; therefore I will x punish Him and release Him.” 23But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. 24And Pilate pronounced sentence that their demand be granted. 25And he released the man they were asking for who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, but he delivered Jesus to their will.
Simon Bears the Cross26 y When they led Him away, they seized a man, Simon of z Cyrene, coming in from the country, and placed on him the cross to carry behind Jesus. 27And following Him was a large crowd of the people, and of women who were ▼
▼ Lit beating the breast, ab mourning and lamenting Him. 28But Jesus turning to them said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29“For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘ ac Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.’ 30“Then they will begin to ad say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ 31“For if they do these things ▼
▼ Lit in the green treewhen the tree is green, what will happen ▼
▼ Lit in the drywhen it is dry?” 32 ag Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him.
The Crucifixion33 ah When they came to the place called ▼
▼ In Lat Calvarius; or CalvaryThe Skull, there they crucified Him and the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left. 34 ▼
▼ Some early mss do not contain But Jesus was saying...doingBut Jesus was saying, ak “Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing.” al And they cast lots, dividing up His garments among themselves. 35And the people stood by, looking on. And even the am rulers were sneering at Him, saying, “He saved others; an let Him save Himself if this is the ▼Christ of God, His Chosen One.” 36The soldiers also mocked Him, coming up to Him, ap offering Him sour wine, 37and saying aq “If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!” 38Now there was also an inscription above Him, ar “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” 39 as One of the criminals who were hanged there was ▼
▼ Or blaspheminghurling abuse at Him, saying, “Are You not the ▼Christ? av Save Yourself and us!” 40But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41“And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving ▼
▼ Lit things worthy of what we have donewhat we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong.” 42And he was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come ▼
▼ Or intoin Your kingdom!” 43And He said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in ay Paradise.” 44 az It was now about ▼
▼ I.e. noon, bb the sixth hour, and darkness ▼
▼ Or occurredfell over the whole land until ▼
▼ I.e. 3 p.m.the ninth hour, 45 ▼
▼ Lit the sun failingbecause the sun was obscured; and bf the veil of the temple was torn ▼
▼ Lit in the middlein two. 46And Jesus bh crying out with a loud voice, said, “Father, bi into Your hands I commit My spirit.” Having said this, He breathed His last. 47 bj Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began bk praising God, saying, “Certainly this man was ▼
▼ Lit righteousinnocent.” 48And all the crowds who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return ▼
▼ I.e. as a traditional sign of mourning or contrition, bn beating their breasts. 49 bo And all His acquaintances and bp the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things.
Jesus Is Buried50 bq And a man named Joseph, who was a br member of the Council, a good and righteous man 51(he had not consented to their plan and action), a man from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who was bs waiting for the kingdom of God; 52this man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 53And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain. 54It was bt the ▼
▼ I.e. preparation for the Sabbathpreparation day, and the Sabbath was about to ▼
▼ Lit dawnbegin. 55Now bw the women who had come with Him out of Galilee followed, and saw the tomb and how His body was laid. 56Then they returned and bx prepared spices and perfumes. And by on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.
