Jesus before Pilate
(Matthew 27:11–14; John 18:28–40)

1And all the multitude of them rising up, lead Him to Pilate. 2And they began to accuse Him, saying, We found Him perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that He is Christ, a King. 3And Pilate asked Him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And responding to him, He said, Thou sayest it. 4And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, I find nothing criminal in this man. 5And they became stronger and stronger, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee unto this place.

Jesus before Herod

6And Pilate hearing, asked if He is a Galilean man.

7And learning that He is from the jurisdiction of Herod, he sent Him up to Herod, being himself in Jerusalem in those days.

8And Herod seeing Jesus, rejoiced exceedingly: for from a long time, wishing to see Him, because He was hearing about Him; and he was hoping to see some miracle wrought by Him. 9And he asked Him with many words; and He responded to him nothing. 10But the high priest and scribes stood by, accusing Him vehemently. 11But Herod along with his soldiers having indeed treated Him with contempt, and mocked Him, putting on Him a scarlet robe, sent Him back to Pilate. 12And both Herod and Pilate on that day became friends with one another: for they were hitherto in enmity either to other.

The Crowd Chooses Barabbas
(Matthew 27:15–23; Mark 15:6–11)

13Pilate having called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14said to them, You have brought to me this man, as revolutionizing the people: and behold, I, judging Him before you, found nothing in this man criminal of those things which you accuse against Him. 15But Herod did not: for he sent Him back to us; and behold, nothing worthy of death has been done by Him. 16Therefore having scourged Him, I will release Him. 17

18And they unanimously cried out, saying, Take Him away, and release unto us Barabbas: 19who had been cast into prison on account of certain sedition made in the city, and murder. 20Then Pilate again called to them, wishing to release Jesus. 21And they continued to shout aloud, saying, Crucify Him, crucify Him. 22And he spoke to them the third time, For what evil hath He done? I found nothing in Him worthy of death: therefore having scourged Him, I will release Him. 23And they continued to lay on with great voices, demanding that He should be crucified: and the voices of them and the high priests continued to grow stronger. 24And Pilate decided that their request should be granted. 25And released him who on account of sedition and murder had been cast into prison, and delivered up Jesus according to their wish.

The Crucifixion
(Matthew 27:32–44; Mark 15:21–32; John 19:16–27)

26And when they were leading Him away, taking a certain Simon, a Cyrenean, coming from the country, they placed the cross on him, to carry it after Jesus.

27And a great multitude of people followed Him, and of women who were both weeping and bewailing Him. 28And Jesus turning to them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and your children. 29Because behold, the days are coming, in which they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that did not bring forth, and the breasts that did not nurse. 30Then they will begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Hide us. 31Because if they do these things in the green tree, what may be done in the dry?

32And two malefactors were also led away with Him, to be executed.

33And when they came to the place called Calvary. There they crucified Him, and the malefactors, one on the right and one on the left. 34And Jesus said, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they are doing. And dividing His garments, they were casting the lots. 35The people stood looking: and the rulers were even mocking with themselves, saying, He saved others; let Him save Himself, if He is the Christ, the elect of God. 36And the soldiers were also mocking, coming and bringing the vinegar to Him, 37and saying, If thou art the King of the Jews, save thyself. 38And the superscription was also over Him: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

39And one of the malefactors having been hung up, continued to blaspheme Him, saying, If thou art the Christ, save thyself and us. 40But the other one responding, rebuked him saying, Do you not fear God, because you are in the same condemnation? 41and we indeed justly; for we are receiving the deservings of the things we did: but this one has done nothing amiss. 42And he said to Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou mayest come in thy kingdom. 43And Jesus said to him, Truly I say unto thee, This day shalt thou be with me in Paradise.

The Death of Jesus
(Matthew 27:45–56; Mark 15:33–41; John 19:28–30)

44And it was about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 45And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the middle. 46And calling with a loud voice, Jesus said, Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit. And having said this, He expired. 47And the centurion seeing that which took place, glorified God, saying, Surely this was a righteous man. 48And all the multitudes being present at that scene, seeing those things which took place, were going away beating their breasts. 49And all His acquaintances stood a great way off and the women who having followed along with Him from Galilee, seeing these things.

The Burial of Jesus
(Matthew 27:57–61; Mark 15:42–47; John 19:38–42)

50And behold, there was a man by name Joseph, being a councilor, a good and righteous man, 51(for he was not consenting unto their counsel and deed), from Arimathea, a city of the Jews, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God. 52He having come to Pilate, begged the body of Jesus. 53And having taken it down, he wrapped it in linen, and placed it in a hewn sepulcher, where no one ever was laid. 54And it was Preparation day, and the Sabbath was drawing nigh. 55And the women, who had come along with him out of Galilee, having followed down, saw the sepulcher, and where His body was placed. 56And having returned, they prepared aromatics and myrrh: and they kept the Sabbath according to the commandment.
