Jesus before Pilate
1Then the whole body of them got up and brought Him before Pilate. 2And they began to accuse Him, saying, We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is Christ, a King. 3So Pilate asked Him, saying, Are You the King of the Jews? And He answered him and said, It is as you say. 4Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, I find no guilt in this man. 5But they kept on insisting, saying, He stirs up the people, teaching all over Judea, starting from Galilee even as far as this place.
18But they cried out all together, saying, Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas! 19(He was one who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection made in the city, and for murder.) 20Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again, 21but they kept on calling out, saying, Crucify, crucify Him! 22And he said to them the third time, Why, what evil has this man done? I have found in Him no guilt demanding death; therefore I will punish Him and release Him. 23But they were insistent, with loud voices asking that He be crucified. And their voices began to prevail. 24And Pilate pronounced sentence that their demand be granted. 25And he released the man they were asking for who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, but he delivered Jesus to their will.
27And following Him was a large crowd of the people, and of women who were mourning and lamenting Him. 28But Jesus turning to them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, stop weeping for Me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For behold, the days are coming when they will say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed. 30Then they will begin TO SAY TO THE MOUNTAINS, FALL ON US, AND TO THE HILLS, COVER US. 31For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?
32Two others also, who were criminals, were being led away to be put to death with Him.
39One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us! 40But the other answered, and rebuking him said, Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong. 42And he was saying, Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom! 43And He said to him, Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.
44It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour, 45because the sun was obscured; and the veil of the temple was torn in two. 46And Jesus, crying out with a loud voice, said, Father, INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT. Having said this, He breathed His last. 47Now when the centurion saw what had happened, he began praising God, saying, Certainly this man was innocent. 48And all the crowds who came together for this spectacle, when they observed what had happened, began to return, beating their breasts. 49And all His acquaintances and the women who accompanied Him from Galilee were standing at a distance, seeing these things.
