Jesus Handed Over to Pontius Pilate


1 When morning came, aall the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death.
2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and adelivered Him to 1Pontius Pilate the governor.

3 aThen Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned,

was remorseful and brought back the thirty bpieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!”
5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and adeparted, and went and hanged himself.
6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood.”
7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.
8 Therefore that field has been called athe Field of Blood to this day.
9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, a“And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced,
10 “and agave them for the potter’s field, as the LORD directed me.”

Jesus Faces Pilate

11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. aAnd the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, b“It is as you say.”
12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, aHe answered nothing.
13 Then Pilate said to Him, a“Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?”
14 aBut He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.

Taking the Place of Barabbas

15 aNow at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished.
16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called 1Barabbas.
17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?”
18 For he knew that they had handed Him over because of aenvy.
19 While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent to him, saying, “Have nothing to do with that just Man, for I have suffered many things today in a dream because of Him.”
20 aBut the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus.
21 The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?” They said, a“Barabbas!”
22 Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called

Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”
23 Then the governor said, a“Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a 1tumult was rising, he atook water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this 2just Person. You see to it.”
25 And all the people answered and said, a“His blood be on us and on our children.”
26 Then he released Barabbas to them; and when ahe had 1scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.

The Soldiers Mock Jesus

27 aThen the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the 1Praetorium and gathered the whole 2garrison around Him.
28 And they astripped Him and bput a scarlet robe on Him.
29 aWhen they had 1twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”
30 Then athey spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head.
31 And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, aand led Him away to be crucified.

The King on a Cross

32 aNow as they came out, bthey found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name. Him they compelled to bear His cross.
33 aAnd when they had come to a place called Golgotha, that is to say, Place of a Skull,
34 athey gave Him 1sour wine mingled with gall to drink. But when He had tasted it, He would not drink.
35 aThen they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, 1that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet:

b“They divided My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.”

36 aSitting down, they kept watch over Him there.
37 And they aput up over His head the accusation written against Him:


38 aThen two robbers were crucified with Him, one on the right and another on the left.

page 877

39 And athose who passed by blasphemed Him, wagging their heads
40 and saying, a“You who destroy the temple and build it in three days, save Yourself! bIf You are the Son of God, come down from the cross.”
41 Likewise the chief priests also, mocking with the 1scribes and elders, said,
42 “He asaved others; Himself He cannot save. 1If He is the King of Israel, let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe 2Him.
43 a“He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’ ”
44 aEven the robbers who were crucified with Him reviled Him with the same thing.

Jesus Dies on the Cross

45 aNow from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land.
46 And about the ninth hour aJesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, b“My God, My God,why have You forsaken Me?”
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!”
48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, afilled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
49 The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
50 And Jesus acried out again with a loud voice, and byielded up His spirit.
51 Then, behold, athe veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split,
52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
53 and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
54 aSo when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, b“Truly this was the Son of God!”
55 And many women awho followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering to Him, were there looking on from afar,
56 aamong whom were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and 1Joses, and the mother of Zebedee’s sons.

Jesus Buried in Joseph’s Tomb

57 Now awhen evening had come, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.

asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given to him.
59 When Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
60 and alaid it in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of the tomb, and departed.
61 And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting 1opposite the tomb.

Pilate Sets a Guard

62 On the next day, which followed the Day of Preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees gathered together to Pilate,
63 saying, “Sir, we remember, while He was still alive, how that deceiver said, a‘After three days I will rise.’
64 “Therefore command that the tomb be made secure until the third day, lest His disciples come 1by night and steal Him away, and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead.’ So the last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said to them, “You have a guard; go your way, make it as secure as you know how.”
66 So they went and made the tomb secure, asealing the stone and setting the guard.

He Is Risen


1 Now aafter the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene band the other Mary came to see the tomb.
2 And behold, there was a great earthquake; for aan angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone 1from the door, and sat on it.
3 aHis countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow.
4 And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like adead men.
5 But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
6 “He is not here; for He is risen, aas He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
7 “And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, and indeed aHe is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him. Behold, I have told you.”
8 So they went out quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to bring His disciples word.

The Women Worship the Risen Lord

9 And 1as they went to tell His disciples, behold, aJesus met them, saying, “Rejoice!” So they came and

page 878


held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go and tell aMy brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.”

The Soldiers Are Bribed

11 Now while they were going, behold, some of the guard came into the city and reported to the chief priests all the things that had happened.
12 When they had assembled with the elders and consulted together, they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
13 saying, “Tell them, ‘His disciples came at night and stole Him away while we slept.’
14 “And if this comes to the governor’s ears, we will appease him and make you secure.”

The Great Commission

16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain awhich Jesus had appointed for them.
17 When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some adoubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, a“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.
19 a“Go 1therefore and bmake disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20 a“teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am bwith you always, even to the end of the age.”

God the Refuge of the Righteous

1 O LORD God, ato whom vengeance belongs— O God, to whom vengeance belongs, shine forth!
2 Rise up, O aJudge of the earth; 1Render punishment to the proud.
3 LORD, ahow long will the wicked, How long will the wicked triumph?

4 They autter speech, and speak insolent things; All the workers of iniquity boast in themselves.
5 They break in pieces Your people, O LORD, And afflict Your heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, And murder the fatherless.
7 aYet they say, “The LORD does not see, Nor does the God of Jacob 1understand.”

8 Understand, you senseless among the people; And you fools, when will you be wise?
9 aHe who planted the ear, shall He not hear? He who formed the eye, shall He not see?
10 He who 1instructs the 2nations, shall He not correct, He who teaches man knowledge?
11 The LORD aknows the thoughts of man, That they are futile.

12 Blessed is the man whom You ainstruct, O LORD, And teach out of Your law,
