Jesus before Pilate

1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate.
2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar [Note 1], saying that he himself is Christ a king.
3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it.
4 Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man.
5 And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.
6 When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean

Jesus before Herod

7 And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time.
8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.
9 Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
10 And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him.
11 And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate.
12 And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves.
13 And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people,
14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
17 (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.)
18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.)
20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them.
21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him.
22 And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go.
23 And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.
24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required.
25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will.

The Via Dolorosa

26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus.
27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him.
28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.
29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.
30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.
31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

The crucifixion

32 And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
35 And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God.
36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar,
37 And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself.
38 And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE kING OF THE JEWS.
39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.

The death of Jesus

46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
47 Now when the centurion [Note 2] saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man.
48 And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned.
49 And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things.

The funeral of Jesus

50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just:
51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God.
52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus.
53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.
54 And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
55 And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid.
56 And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment.

1 et surgens omnis multitudo eorum duxerunt illum ad Pilatum
2 coeperunt autem accusare illum dicentes hunc invenimus subvertentem gentem nostram et prohibentem tributa dari Caesari et dicentem se Christum regem esse
3 Pilatus autem interrogavit eum dicens tu es rex Iudaeorum at ille respondens ait tu dicis
4 ait autem Pilatus ad principes sacerdotum et turbas nihil invenio causae in hoc homine
5 at illi invalescebant dicentes commovet populum docens per universam Iudaeam et incipiens a Galilaea usque huc
6 Pilatus autem audiens Galilaeam interrogavit si homo Galilaeus esset
7 et ut cognovit quod de Herodis potestate esset remisit eum ad Herodem qui et ipse Hierosolymis erat illis diebus
8 Herodes autem viso Iesu gavisus est valde erat enim cupiens ex multo tempore videre eum eo quod audiret multa de illo et sperabat signum aliquod videre ab eo fieri
9 interrogabat autem illum multis sermonibus at ipse nihil illi respondebat
10 stabant etiam principes sacerdotum et scribae constanter accusantes eum
11 sprevit autem illum Herodes cum exercitu suo et inlusit indutum veste alba et remisit ad Pilatum
12 et facti sunt amici Herodes et Pilatus in ipsa die nam antea inimici erant ad invicem
13 Pilatus autem convocatis principibus sacerdotum et magistratibus et plebe
14 dixit ad illos obtulistis mihi hunc hominem quasi avertentem populum et ecce ego coram vobis interrogans nullam causam inveni in homine isto ex his in quibus eum accusatis
15 sed neque Herodes nam remisi vos ad illum et ecce nihil dignum morte actum est ei
16 emendatum ergo illum dimittam
17 necesse autem habebat dimittere eis per diem festum unum
18 exclamavit autem simul universa turba dicens tolle hunc et dimitte nobis Barabban
19 qui erat propter seditionem quandam factam in civitate et homicidium missus in carcerem
20 iterum autem Pilatus locutus est ad illos volens dimittere Iesum
21 at illi succlamabant dicentes crucifige crucifige illum
22 ille autem tertio dixit ad illos quid enim mali fecit iste nullam causam mortis invenio in eo corripiam ergo illum et dimittam
23 at illi instabant vocibus magnis postulantes ut crucifigeretur et invalescebant voces eorum
24 et Pilatus adiudicavit fieri petitionem eorum
25 dimisit autem illis eum qui propter homicidium et seditionem missus fuerat in carcerem quem petebant Iesum vero tradidit voluntati eorum
26 et cum ducerent eum adprehenderunt Simonem quendam Cyrenensem venientem de villa et inposuerunt illi crucem portare post Iesum
27 sequebatur autem illum multa turba populi et mulierum quae plangebant et lamentabant eum
28 conversus autem ad illas Iesus dixit filiae Hierusalem nolite flere super me sed super vos ipsas flete et super filios vestros
29 quoniam ecce venient dies in quibus dicent beatae steriles et ventres qui non genuerunt et ubera quae non lactaverunt
30 tunc incipient dicere montibus cadite super nos et collibus operite nos
31 quia si in viridi ligno haec faciunt in arido quid fiet
32 ducebantur autem et alii duo nequam cum eo ut interficerentur
33 et postquam venerunt in locum qui vocatur Calvariae ibi crucifixerunt eum et latrones unum a dextris et alterum a sinistris
34 Iesus autem dicebat Pater dimitte illis non enim sciunt quid faciunt dividentes vero vestimenta eius miserunt sortes
35 et stabat populus expectans et deridebant illum principes cum eis dicentes alios salvos fecit se salvum faciat si hic est Christus Dei electus
36 inludebant autem ei et milites accedentes et acetum offerentes illi
37 dicentes si tu es rex Iudaeorum salvum te fac
38 erat autem et superscriptio inscripta super illum litteris graecis et latinis et hebraicis hic est rex Iudaeorum
39 unus autem de his qui pendebant latronibus blasphemabat eum dicens si tu es Christus salvum fac temet ipsum et nos
40 respondens autem alter increpabat illum dicens neque tu times Deum quod in eadem damnatione es
41 et nos quidem iuste nam digna factis recipimus hic vero nihil mali gessit
42 et dicebat ad Iesum Domine memento mei cum veneris in regnum tuum
43 et dixit illi Iesus amen dico tibi hodie mecum eris in paradiso
44 erat autem fere hora sexta et tenebrae factae sunt in universa terra usque in nonam horam
45 et obscuratus est sol et velum templi scissum est medium
46 et clamans voce magna Iesus ait Pater in manus tuas commendo spiritum meum et haec dicens exspiravit
47 videns autem centurio quod factum fuerat glorificavit Deum dicens vere hic homo iustus erat
48 et omnis turba eorum qui simul aderant ad spectaculum istud et videbant quae fiebant percutientes pectora sua revertebantur
49 stabant autem omnes noti eius a longe et mulieres quae secutae erant eum a Galilaea haec videntes
50 et ecce vir nomine Ioseph qui erat decurio vir bonus et iustus
51 hic non consenserat consilio et actibus eorum ab Arimathia civitate Iudaeae qui expectabat et ipse regnum Dei
52 hic accessit ad Pilatum et petiit corpus Iesu
53 et depositum involvit sindone et posuit eum in monumento exciso in quo nondum quisquam positus fuerat
54 et dies erat parasceves et sabbatum inlucescebat
55 subsecutae autem mulieres quae cum ipso venerant de Galilaea viderunt monumentum et quemadmodum positum erat corpus eius
56 et revertentes paraverunt aromata et unguenta et sabbato quidem siluerunt secundum mandatum
