15 And before dawn, the chief priests held a council with the elders, and the scribes, and the whole Council; and bound Jesus and led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate.

Then Pilate asked Him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And He answered, and said to him, “You have said so.”

And the chief priests accused Him of many things.

So Pilate asked Him again, saying, “Do you answer nothing? Behold how many things they witness against You.”

But Jesus answered no more at all, so that Pilate marveled.

Now at the feast, Pilate would deliver a prisoner to them, whoever they desired.

And there was one named Barabbas (who was bound with his fellows) who had made insurrection, during which he had committed murder.

And the people cried aloud and began to desire that Pilate would do as he had always done for them.

Then Pilate answered them, and said, “Should I release to you the King of the Jews?”

10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered Him out of envy.

11 But the chief priests had incited the people to desire Barabbas.

12 And Pilate answered, and said to them again, “What then shall I do with Him Whom you call the King of the Jews?”

13 And they cried again, “Crucify Him!”

14 Then Pilate said to them, “But, what evil has He done?” And they cried even more fervently, “Crucify Him!”

15 So Pilate, willing to content the people, gave them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus - once he had scourged Him - to be crucified.

16 Then the soldiers led Him away into the hall (which is the common hall) and called together the whole band,

17 and clothed Him with purple, and put a crown of thorns on His head,

18 and began to salute Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”

19 And they struck Him on the head with a reed, and spit on Him, and bowed their knees, and did Him reverence.

20 And when they had mocked Him, they took the purple off Him, and put His own clothes back on, and led Him out to crucify Him.

21 And they compelled one who passed by called Simon of Cyrene (who came out of the country, and was father of Alexander and Rufus) to bear His cross.

22 And they brought Him to a place named Golgotha (which is by interpretation, ‘Place of Dead Mens’ Skulls’).

23 And they gave Him wine to drink, mingled with myrrh. But He did not receive it.

24 And when they had crucified Him, they parted His garments, casting lots for what every man should have.

25 And it was the third hour when they crucified Him.

26 And the title of His cause was written above, ‘THE KING OF THE JEWS.’

27 They also crucified two thieves with Him - one on the right and the other on His left.

28 Thus the Scripture was fulfilled which says,“And He was counted among the wicked.”

29 And those who passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads and saying, “Hey, You who would destroy the Temple, and build it in three days,

30 save Yourself! And come down from the cross!”

31 Likewise even the chief priests, also mocking, said among themselves with the scribes, “He saved other men! Himself He cannot save!

32 “Let Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with Him also reviled Him.

33 Now, when the sixth hour had come, darkness arose over all the land until the ninth hour.

34 And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, “Eloi, Eloi, lama-sabachthani?” Which is by interpretation, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”

35 And some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said, “Behold, He calls Elijah!”

36 And one ran and filled a sponge full of vinegar and put it on a reed and gave it to Him, saying, “Let Him alone! Let us see if Elijah will come and take Him down!”

37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice and gave up the ghost.

38 And the veil of the Temple was torn in two, from the top to the bottom.

39 Now when the centurion who stood near Him saw that He, thus crying, gave up the ghost, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God.”

40 There were also women who watched from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome,

41 who also followed Him and ministered to Him when He was in Galilee, and many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.

42 And now when the night had come (because it was the Day of the Preparation that is before the Sabbath)

43 Joseph of Arimathea, an honorable councilman, who also looked for the Kingdom of God, went in boldly to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.

44 And Pilate was surprised that He was already dead, So, he called the centurion and asked him whether He were indeed dead.

45 And when he knew the truth from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph;

46 who bought a linen cloth, and took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb that was hewn out of a rock; and rolled a stone over the door of the sepulcher.

47 And Mary Magdalene and Mary Joses’ mother beheld where He was laid.
