1 And aimmediately in the morning the bchief priests held a cconsultation with the elders and scribes and the whole 1Sanhedrin, and having bound Jesus, they led Him away and ddelivered Him to 2ePilate.
3 And the chief priests aaccused Him of many things.
4 And Pilate again questioned Him, saying, Do You answer nothing? See how many things they are accusing You of.
6 Now at the afeasts he released to them one prisoner whom they requested.
8 And the crowd 1came up and began to ask him to do even as he had been accustomed to do for them.
9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Do you want me to release to you the aKing of the Jews?
10 For he knew that it was because of envy that the chief priests had delivered Him up.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd that instead he should arelease Barabbas to them.
12 And Pilate again answered and said to them, What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?
14 But Pilate said to them, Why, what evil has He done? But they cried out the more, Crucify Him!
19 And they beat His head with a reed and aspat at Him. And kneeling down, they bowed before Him.
22 And they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is interpreted, the aPlace of a Skull.
24 And they crucified Him and divided His garments, casting alots for them to see what each should take.
26 And there was an inscription of the charge against Him inscribed: The aKing Of The JEWS.
27 And with Him they crucified two robbers, one on His right and one on His left.
30 1Save Yourself and come down from the cross!
35 And some of those standing by heard this and said, Behold, He is calling for Elijah.
36 And someone ran and filled a sponge with avinegar, and putting it on a reed, gave it to Him to drink, saying, Let Him be. Let us see if Elijah is coming to take Him down.
37 And Jesus let out a aloud cry and expired.
38 And the aveil of the temple was split in two from top to bottom.
41 Who, when He was in Galilee, followed Him and aministered to Him, as well as many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
43 aJoseph, 1the honorable member of the Council, from Arimathea, who was also himself bawaiting the ckingdom of God, came; and gathering courage, he went in to dPilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
44 And Pilate marveled that He had already died, and calling to him the acenturion, he questioned him whether He had been dead long.
45 And when he found out from the centurion, he granted the corpse to Joseph.
46 And Joseph purchased a piece of fine linen, took Him down, and wrapped Him in the fine linen. And he 1laid Him in a atomb which was hewn out of rock and rolled a stone against the bdoor of the tomb.
