Jesus before Pilate1 a Early in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes and the whole ▼
▼ Or Sanhedrin, c Council, immediately held a consultation; and binding Jesus, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate. 2 d Pilate questioned Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?” And He answered him, “It is as you say.” 3 The chief priests began to accuse Him ▼
▼ Or of many thingsharshly. 4 Then Pilate questioned Him again, saying, “Do You not answer? See how many charges they bring against You!” 5 But Jesus f made no further answer; so Pilate was amazed. 6 g Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested. 7 The man named Barabbas had been imprisoned with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the insurrection. 8 The crowd went up and began asking him to do as he had been accustomed to do for them. 9 Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he was aware that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd h to ask him to release Barabbas for them instead. 12 Answering again, Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?” 13 They shouted ▼
▼ Or againback, “Crucify Him!” 14 But Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they shouted all the more, “Crucify Him!” 15 Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus j scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
Jesus Is Mocked16 k The soldiers took Him away into l the ▼
▼ Or courtpalace (that is, the Praetorium), and they called together the whole Roman ▼
▼ Or battalion, o cohort. 17 They dressed Him up in purple, and after twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on Him; 18 and they began to acclaim Him, “Hail, King of the Jews!” 19 They kept beating His head with a ▼
▼ Or staff (made of a reed)reed, and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him. 20 After they had mocked Him, they took the purple robe off Him and put His own garments on Him. And they led Him out to crucify Him. 21 q They pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and r Rufus), to bear His cross.
The Crucifixion22 s Then they brought Him to the place t Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull. 23 They tried to give Him u wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it. 24 And they crucified Him, and v divided up His garments among themselves, casting ▼
▼ Lit a lot uponlots for them to decide ▼
▼ Lit who should take whatwhat each man should take. 25 It was the ▼
▼ I.e. 9 a.m., z third hour ▼
▼ Lit andwhen they crucified Him. 26 The inscription of the charge against Him ▼
▼ Lit had been inscribedread ac “THE KING OF THE JEWS.” 27 They crucified two robbers with Him, one on His right and one on His left. 28 [ ▼
▼ Early mss do not contain this vAnd the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “And He was numbered with transgressors.”] 29 Those passing by were ▼
▼ Or blaspheminghurling abuse at Him, af wagging their heads, and saying, “Ha! You who are going to ag destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, 30 save Yourself, and come down from the cross!” 31 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes, were mocking Him among themselves and saying ah “He saved others; ▼
▼ Or can He not save Himself?He cannot save Himself. 32 “Let this Christ, aj the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” ak Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him. 33 al When the ▼
▼ I.e. noon, an sixth hour came, darkness ▼
▼ Or occurredfell over the whole land until the ▼
▼ I.e. 3 p.m., aq ninth hour. 34 At the ar ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, as “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” which is translated, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” 35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying, “Behold, He is calling for Elijah.” 36 Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying ▼
▼ Lit Permit that we see; or Hold off, let us see“Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down.” 37 au And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last. 38 av And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 aw When the centurion, who was standing ▼
▼ Or opposite Himright in front of Him, saw ▼
▼ Lit that He thusthe way He breathed His last, he said, “Truly this man was ▼
▼ Or a son of God or son of a godthe Son of God!” 40 ba There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of ▼
▼ Or JacobJames bc the ▼
▼ Lit little (either in stature or age)Less and Joses, and be Salome. 41 When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and ▼
▼ Or wait on, bg minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
Jesus Is Buried42 bh When evening had already come, because it was bi the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea came, a bj prominent member of the Council, who himself was bk waiting for the kingdom of God; and he bl gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 44 Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead. 45 And ascertaining this from bm the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. 46 Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. 47 bn Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were looking on to see where He was laid.
