- Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
- And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and arrayed him in a purple garment;
- and they came unto him, and said, Hail, King of the Jews!
and they struck him with their hands.
- And Pilate went out again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him out to you, that ye may know that I find no crime in him.
- Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.
And [Pilate] saith unto them, Behold, the man!
- When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify [him], crucify [him]!
Pilate saith unto them, Take him yourselves, and crucify him: for I find no crime in him.
- The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by that law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
- When Pilate therefore heard this saying, he was the more afraid;
- and he entered into the Praetorium again, and saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou?
But Jesus gave him no answer.
- Pilate therefore saith unto him, Speakest thou not unto me?
Knowest thou not that I have power to release thee, and have power to crucify thee?
- Jesus answered him, Thou wouldest have no power against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath greater sin.
- Upon this Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou release this man, thou art not Caesar’s friend: every one that maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
- When Pilate therefore heard these words, he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
- Now it was the Preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour.
And he saith unto the Jews, Behold, your King!
- They therefore cried out, Away with [him], away with [him], crucify him!
Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King?
The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.
- Then therefore he delivered him unto them to be crucified.
- They took Jesus therefore: and he went out, bearing the cross for himself, unto the place called The place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew, Golgotha:
- where they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
- And Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross.
And there was written, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
- This title therefore read many of the Jews, for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city;
and it was written in Hebrew, [and] in Latin, [and] in Greek.
- The chief priests of the Jews therefore said to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews;
but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
- Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
- The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part;
and also the coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
- They said therefore one to another, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my garments among them, And upon my vesture did they cast lots.
- These things therefore the soldiers did.
But there were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the [wife] of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene.
- When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
- Then saith he to the disciple, Behold, thy mother!
And from that hour the disciple took her unto his own [home].
- After this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture might be accomplished, saith, I thirst.
- There was set there a vessel full of vinegar: so they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to his mouth.
- When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up his spirit.
- The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, that the bodies should not remain on the cross upon the sabbath (for the day of that sabbath was a high [day]), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and [that] they might be taken away.
- The soldiers therefore came, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him:
- but when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
- howbeit one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and straightway there came out blood and water.
- And he that hath seen hath borne witness, and his witness is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye also may believe.
- For these things came to pass, that the scripture might be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
- And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
- And after these things Joseph of Arimathaea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave [him] leave.
He came therefore, and took away his body.
- And there came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to him by night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.
- So they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
- Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden;
and in the garden a new tomb wherein was never man yet laid.
- There then because of the Jews’ Preparation (for the tomb was nigh at hand) they laid Jesus.
