1 As soon as it was morning, the head cohanim held a council meeting with the elders, the Torah-teachers and the whole Sanhedrin. Then they put Yeshua in chains, led him away and handed him over to Pilate. 1 Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate.
2 Pilate put this question to him: "Are you the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "The words are yours." 2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
3 The head cohanim too made accusations against him, 3 The chief priests accused him of many things.
4 and Pilate again inquired of him, "Aren't you going to answer? Look how many charges they are making against you!" 4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of."
5 But Yeshua made no further response, to Pilate's amazement. 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.
6 Now during a festival, Pilate used to set free one prisoner, whomever the crowd requested. 6 Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested.
7 There was in prison among the rebels who had committed murder during the insurrection a man called Bar-Abba. When the crowd came up and began ask 7 A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising.

9 e asked them, "Do you want me to set free for you the `King of the Jews'?" 9 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate,
10 For it was evident to him that it was out of jealousy that the head cohanim had handed him over. 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.
11 But the head cohanim stirred up the crowd to have him release Bar-Abba for them instead. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.
12 Pilate again said to them, "Then what should I do with the man you call the King of the Jews?" 12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them.
13 They shouted back, "Put him to death on the stake!" 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted.
14 He asked, "Why? What crime has he committed?" But they only shouted louder, "Put him to death on the stake!" 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the mob, set Bar-Abba free for them; but he had Yeshua whipped and then handed him over to be executed on the stake. 15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
16 The soldiers led him away inside the palace (that is, the headquarters build ing) and called together the whole battalion. 16 The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers.

18 Then they began to salute him, "Hail to the King of the Jews!" 18 And they began to call out to him, "Hail, king of the Jews!"
19 They hit him on the head with a stick, spat on him and kneeled in mock worship of him. 19 Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him.
20 When they had finished ridiculing him, they took off the purple robe, put his own clothes back on him and led him away to be nailed to the execution-stake. 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.
21 A certain man from Cyrene, Shim`on, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country; and they forced him to carry the stake. 21 A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross.

23 and they gave him wine spiced with myrrh, but he didn't take it. 23 Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.
24 Then they nailed him to the execution-stake; and they divided his clothes among themselves, throwing dice to determine what each man should get. 24 And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get.
25 It was nine in the morning when they nailed him to the stake. 25 It was the third hour when they crucified him.

29 People passing by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, "Aha! So you can destroy the Temple, can you, and rebuild it in three days? 29 come down from the cross and save yourself !"
30 Save yourself and come down from the stake!" 30 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself !
31 Likewise, the head cohanim and the Torah-teachers made fun of him, saying to each other, "He saved others, but he can't save himself!" 31 Let this Christ, this King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe." Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.
32 and, "So he's the Messiah, is he? The King of Isra'el? Let him come down now from the stake! If we see that, then we'll believe him!" Even the men nailed up with him insulted him. 32 At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour.
33 At noon, darkness covered the whole Land until three o'clock in the afternoon. 33 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ""Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? ""--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"
34 At three, he uttered a loud cry, "Elohi! Elohi! L'mah sh'vaktani?" (which means, "My God! My God! Why have you deserted me?") 34 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, "Listen, he's calling Elijah."
35 On hear ing this, some of the bystanders said, "Look! He's calling for Eliyahu!" 35 One man ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to take him down," he said.
36 One ran and soaked a sponge in vinegar, put it on a stick and gave it to him to drink. "Wait!" he said, "Let's see if Eliyahu will come and take him down." 36 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.
37 But Yeshua let out a loud cry and gave up his spirit. 37 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
38 And the parokhet in the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 38 And when the centurion, who stood there in front of Jesus, heard his cry and saw how he died, he said, "Surely this man was the Son of God!"
39 When the Roman officer who stood facing him saw the way he gave up his spirit, he said, "This man really was a son of God!" 39 Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome.
40 There were women looking on from a distance; among them were Miryam from Magdala, Miryam the mother of the younger Ya`akov and of Yosi, and Shlomit. 40 In Galilee these women had followed him and cared for his needs. Many other women who had come up with him to Jerusalem were also there.

42 Since it was Preparation Day (that is, the day before a Shabbat), as evening approached, 42 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body.
43 Yosef of Ramatayim, a prominent member of the Sanhedrin who himself was also looking forward to the Kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Yeshua's body. 43 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died.
44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead, so he summoned the officer and asked him if he had been dead awhile. 44 When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph.
45 After he had gotten confirmation from the officer that Yeshua was dead, he granted Yosef the corpse. 45 So Joseph bought some linen cloth, took down the body, wrapped it in the linen, and placed it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.
46 Yosef purchased a linen sheet; and after taking Yeshua down, he wrapped him in the linen sheet, laid him in a tomb which had been cut out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb. 46 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.
47 Miryam of Magdala and Miryam the mother of Yosi saw where he had been laid. 47
