But a certain one of them that stood by drew his sword, 2 Gr. bondservant. and smote the 'servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear.

And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and 53 there come together with him all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. And Peter had fol- 54 lowed him afar off, even within, into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the officers, and warming himself in the light of the fire. Now 55 the chief priests and the whole council sought vitness against Jesus to put him to death; and found it not. For many bare false witness against him, 56 and their witness agreed not together. And there 57 stood up certain, and bare false witness against him, saying, We heard him say, I will destroy this temple 58 that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another made without hands. And not even 59 so did their witness agree together. And the high 60 priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But he held his peace, and an- 61 swered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and saith unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed? And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see 62 the Son of man sitting at the right hand of power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. And the 63 high priest rent his clothes, and saith, What further need have we of witnesses? Ye have heard the blas- 64 phemy: what think ye? And they all condemned him to be worthy of death. And, some began to 65 spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the officers re

after a little while again they that stood by said to Peter, Of a truth thou art one of them; for thou art 71 a Galilæan. But he began to curse, and to swear, I 72 know not this man of whom ye speak. And straightway the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word, how that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

And straightway in the morning the chief priests
with the elders and scribes, and the whole council,
held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried
2 him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. And
Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest.
3 And the chief priests accused him of many things.
4 And Pilate again asked him, saying, Answerest thou
nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee
5 of. But Jesus no more answered anything; inso-
much that Pilate marvelled.


Now at the feast he used to release unto them one 5 Or, a feast 7 prisoner, whom they asked of him. And there was one called Barabbas, lying bound with them that had made insurrection, men who in the insurrection had 8 committed murder. And the multitude went up and

began to ask him to do as he was wont to do unto 9 them. And Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye 10 that I release unto you the King of the Jews? For

he perceived that for envy the chief priests had de11 livered him up. But the chief priests stirred up the

multitude, that he should rather release Barabbas 12 unto them. And Pilate again answered and said

unto them, What then shall I do unto him whom ye 13 call the King of the Jews? And they cried out 14 again, Crucify him. And Pilate said unto them,

Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out 15 exceedingly, Crucify him. And Pilate, wishing to content the multitude, released unto them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.

plaiting a crown of thorns, they put it on him; and 18 they began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote his head with a reed, and did spit 19 upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him. And when they had mocked him, they took off from 20 him the purple, and put on him his garments. And they lead him out to crucify him.

And they 'compel one passing by, Simon of Cy-21 rene, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to go with them, that he might bear his cross. And they bring him unto the place Gol- 22 gotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull. And they offered him wine mingled with 23 myrrh: but he received it not. And they crucify 24 him, and part his garments among them, casting lots upon them, what each should take. And it was the 25 third hour, and they crucified him. And the super- 26 thorities insert scription of his accusation was written over, THE scripture was ful- KING OF THE JEWs.

43 Preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, there
came Joseph of Arimathæa, a councillor of honour-
able estate, who also himself was looking for the
kingdom of God; and he boldly went in unto Pi-

marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto Many

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint 2 him. And very early on the first day of the week, they come to the tomb when the sun was risen. 3 And they were saying among themselves, Who shall

roll us away the stone from the door of the tomb? 4 and looking up, they see that the stone is rolled 5 back: for it was exceeding great. And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, arrayed in a white robe; and they were amazed. 6 And he saith unto them, Be not amazed: ye seek Jesus, the Nazarene, which hath been crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold, the place where they 7 laid him! But go, tell his disciples and Peter, He goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, 8 as he said unto you. And they went out, and fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment had come upon them: and they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.

And afterward he was manifested unto the eleven 14 themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he said unto them, Go ye 15 into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He that believeth and is baptized shall be 16 saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned.
