- And immediately, in the morning, the chief priests having made a consultation, with the elders, and scribes, and the whole sanhedrim, having bound Jesus, did lead away, and delivered [him] to Pilate;
- and Pilate questioned him, `Art thou the king of the Jews?' and he answering said to him, `Thou dost say [it].'
- And the chief priests were accusing him of many things, [but he answered nothing.]
- And Pilate again questioned him, saying, `Thou dost not answer anything! lo, how many things they do testify against thee!'
- and Jesus did no more answer anything, so that Pilate wondered.
- And at every feast he was releasing to them one prisoner, whomsoever they were asking;
- and there was [one] named Barabbas, bound with those making insurrection with him, who had in the insurrection committed murder.
- And the multitude having cried out, began to ask for themselves as he was always doing to them,
- and Pilate answered them, saying, `Will ye [that] I shall release to you the king of the Jews?'
- for he knew that because of envy the chief priests had delivered him up;
- and the chief priests did move the multitude, that he might rather release Barabbas to them.
- And Pilate answering, again said to them, `What, then, will ye [that] I shall do to him whom ye call king of the Jews?'
- and they again cried out, `Crucify him.'
- And Pilate said to them, `Why -- what evil did he?' and they cried out the more vehemently, `Crucify him;'
- and Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus -- having scourged [him] -- that he might be crucified.
- And the soldiers led him away into the hall, which is Praetorium, and call together the whole band,
- and clothe him with purple, and having plaited a crown of thorns, they put [it] on him,
- and began to salute him, `Hail, King of the Jews.'
- And they were smiting him on the head with a reed, and were spitting on him, and having bent the knee, were bowing to him,
- and when they [had] mocked him, they took the purple from off him, and clothed him in his own garments, and they led him forth, that they may crucify him.
- And they impress a certain one passing by -- Simon, a Cyrenian, coming from the field, the father of Alexander and Rufus -- that he may bear his cross,
- and they bring him to the place Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, `Place of a skull;'
- and they were giving him to drink wine mingled with myrrh, and he did not receive.
- And having crucified him, they were dividing his garments, casting a lot upon them, what each may take;
- and it was the third hour, and they crucified him;
- and the inscription of his accusation was written above -- `The King of the Jews.'
- And with him they crucify two robbers, one on the right hand, and one on his left,
- and the Writing was fulfilled that is saying, `And with lawless ones he was numbered.'
- And those passing by were speaking evil of him, shaking their heads, and saying, `Ah, the thrower down of the sanctuary, and in three days the builder!
- save thyself, and come down from the cross!'
- And in like manner also the chief priests, mocking with one another, with the scribes, said, `Others he saved; himself he is not able to save.
- The Christ! the king of Israel -- let him come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe;' and those crucified with him were reproaching him.
- And the sixth hour having come, darkness came over the whole land till the ninth hour,
- and at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a great voice, saying, `Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabachthani?' which is, being interpreted, `My God, my God, why didst Thou forsake me?'
- And certain of those standing by, having heard, said, `Lo, Elijah he doth call;'
- and one having run, and having filled a spunge with vinegar, having put [it] also on a reed, was giving him to drink, saying, `Let alone, let us see if Elijah doth come to take him down.'
- And Jesus having uttered a loud cry, yielded the spirit,
- and the veil of the sanctuary was rent in two, from top to bottom,
- and the centurion who was standing over-against him, having seen that, having so cried out, he yielded the spirit, said, `Truly this man was Son of God.'
- And there were also women afar off beholding, among whom was also Mary the Magdalene, and Mary of James the less, and of Joses, and Salome,
- (who also, when he was in Galilee, were following him, and were ministering to him,) and many other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.
- And now evening having come, seeing it was the preparation, that is, the fore-sabbath,
- Joseph of Arimathea, an honourable counsellor, who also himself was waiting for the reign of God, came, boldly entered in unto Pilate, and asked the body of Jesus.
- And Pilate wondered if he were already dead, and having called near the centurion, did question him if he were long dead,
- and having known [it] from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.
- And he, having brought fine linen, and having taken him down, wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre that had been hewn out of a rock, and he rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre,
- and Mary the Magdalene, and Mary of Joses, were beholding where he is laid.
- And the sabbath having past, Mary the Magdalene, and Mary of James, and Salome, bought spices, that having come, they may anoint him,
- and early in the morning of the first of the sabbaths, they come unto the sepulchre, at the rising of the sun,
- and they said among themselves, `Who shall roll away for us the stone out of the door of the sepulchre?'
- And having looked, they see that the stone hath been rolled away -- for it was very great,
- and having entered into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right hand, arrayed in a long white robe, and they were amazed.
- And he saith to them, `Be not amazed, ye seek Jesus the Nazarene, the crucified: he did rise -- he is not here; lo, the place where they laid him!
- and go, say to his disciples, and Peter, that he doth go before you to Galilee; there ye shall see him, as he said to you.'
- And, having come forth quickly, they fled from the sepulchre, and trembling and amazement had seized them, and to no one said they anything, for they were afraid.
- And he, having risen in the morning of the first of the sabbaths, did appear first to Mary the Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven demons;
- she having gone, told those who had been with him, mourning and weeping;
- and they, having heard that he is alive, and was seen by her, did not believe.
- And after these things, to two of them, as they are going into a field, walking, he was manifested in another form,
- and they having gone, told to the rest; not even them did they believe.
- Afterwards, as they are reclining (at meat), he was manifested to the eleven, and did reproach their unbelief and stiffness of heart, because they believed not those having seen him being raised;
- and he said to them, `Having gone to all the world, proclaim the good news to all the creation;
- he who hath believed, and hath been baptized, shall be saved; and he who hath not believed, shall be condemned.
- `And signs shall accompany those believing these things; in my name demons they shall cast out; with new tongues they shall speak;
- serpents they shall take up; and if any deadly thing they may drink, it shall not hurt them; on the ailing they shall lay hands, and they shall be well.'
- The Lord, then, indeed, after speaking to them, was received up to the heaven, and sat on the right hand of God;
- and they, having gone forth, did preach everywhere, the Lord working with [them], and confirming the word, through the signs following. Amen.
