Jesus Delivered to Pilate
(Matthew 27:1–2)

1And anon in the dawning, the hie Priestes helde a Councill with the Elders, and the Scribes, and the whole Council, and bound Iesus, and led him away, and deliuered him to Pilate. 2Then Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Iewes? And hee answered, and sayde vnto him, Thou sayest it. 3And the hie Priestes accused him of many things. 4Wherefore Pilate asked him againe, saying, Answerest thou nothing? beholde howe many things they witnesse against thee. 5But Iesus answered no more at all, so that Pilate marueiled.

The Crowd Chooses Barabbas
(Matthew 27:15–23; Luke 23:13–25)

6Nowe at the feast, Pilate did deliuer a prisoner vnto them, whomesoeuer they woulde desire. 7Then there was one named Barabbas, which was bounde with his fellowes, that had made insurrection, who in the insurrection had committed murther. 8And the people cried aloude, and began to desire that he woulde doe as he had euer done vnto them. 9Then Pilate answered them, and said, Will ye that I let loose vnto you the King of ye Iewes? 10For he knewe that the hie Priestes had deliuered him of enuie. 11But the high Priestes had moued the people to desire that he would rather deliuer Barabbas vnto them.

Pilate Delivers Up Jesus
(Matthew 27:24–26)

12And Pilate answered, and said againe vnto them, What will ye then that I doe with him, whom ye call the King of the Iewes? 13And they cried againe, Crucifie him. 14Then Pilate said vnto them, But what euill hath he done? And they cryed the more feruently, Crucifie him. 15So Pilate willing to content the people, loosed them Barabbas, & deliuered Iesus, when he had scourged him, that he might be crucified.

The Soldiers Mock Jesus
(Isaiah 50:4–11; Matthew 27:27–31; Luke 22:63–65; John 19:1–15)

16Then the souldiers led him away into the hall, which is the common hall, and called together the whole band, 17And clad him with purple, and platted a crowne of thornes, and put it about his head, 18And began to salute him, saying, Haile, King of the Iewes. 19And they smote him on the head with a reede, and spat vpon him, and bowed the knees, and did him reuerence. 20And whe they had mocked him, they tooke the purple off him, and put his owne clothes on him, and led him out to crucifie him.

The Crucifixion
(Psalm 22:1–31; Matthew 27:32–44; Luke 23:26–43; John 19:16–27)

21And they compelled one that passed by, called Simon of Cyrene (which came out of the countrey, and was father of Alexander and Rufus) to beare his crosse.

22And they brought him to a place named Golgotha, which is by interpretation, the place of dead mens skulles. 23And they gaue him to drinke wine mingled with myrrhe: but he receiued it not. 24And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots for them, what euery man should haue. 25And it was the third houre, when they crucified him. 26And ye title of his cause was written aboue, That king of the iewes.

27They crucified also with him two theeues, the one on ye right hand, & the other on his left. 28Thus the Scripture was fulfilled, which sayth, And he was counted among the wicked. 29And they that went by, railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Hey, thou that destroyest the Temple, & buildest it in three dayes, 30Saue thy selfe, and come downe from the crosse. 31Likewise also euen the hie Priests mocking, said among themselues with the Scribes, He saued other men, himselfe he cannot saue. 32Let Christ the King of Israel nowe come downe from the crosse, that we may see, and beleeue. They also that were crucified with him, reuiled him.

The Death of Jesus
(Psalm 22:1–31; Matthew 27:45–56; Luke 23:44–49; John 19:28–30)

33Nowe when the sixt houre was come, darkenesse arose ouer all the land vntill the ninth houre. 34And at the ninth houre Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lamma-sabachthani? which is by interpretation, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 35And some of them that stoode by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. 36And one ranne, and filled a spondge full of vineger, and put it on a reede, and gaue him to drinke, saying, Let him alone: let vs see if Elias will come, and take him downe. 37And Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, and gaue vp the ghost. 38And the vaile of the Temple was rent in twaine, from the toppe to the bottome. 39Nowe when the Centurion, which stoode ouer against him, sawe that he thus crying gaue vp the ghost, he saide, Truely this man was the Sonne of God.

40There were also women, which beheld afarre off, among whom was Marie Magdalene, and Marie (the mother of Iames the lesse, and of Ioses) and Salome, 41Which also when he was in Galile, folowed him, and ministred vnto him, and many other women which came vp with him vnto Hierusalem.

The Burial of Jesus
(Isaiah 53:9–12; Matthew 27:57–61; Luke 23:50–56; John 19:38–42)

42And nowe when the night was come (because it was the day of the preparation that is before the Sabbath) 43Ioseph of Arimathea, an honorable counsellour, which also looked for the kingdome of God, came, and went in boldly vnto Pilate, and asked the body of Iesus. 44And Pilate marueiled, if he were already dead, and called vnto him the Centurion, and asked of him whether he had bene any while dead. 45And when he knewe the trueth of the Centurion, he gaue the body to Ioseph: 46Who bought a linnen cloth, & tooke him downe, and wrapped him in the linnen cloth, and laide him in a tombe that was hewen out of a rocke, and rolled a stone vnto the doore of the sepulchre: 47And Marie Magdalene, and Marie Ioses mother, behelde where he should be layed.
