Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And as soon as it was morning the chief priests, with the elders and scribes, and the whole council held a consultation; and they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him 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.

10 For he perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up. 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release for them Barab'bas instead. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.

14 And Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil has he done?" But they shouted all the more, "Crucify him." 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
15 So Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released for them Barab'bas; and having scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified. 15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

40 There were also women looking on from afar, among whom were Mary Mag'dalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salo'me, 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.

43 Joseph of Arimathe'a, a respected member of the council, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, took courage and went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. 43 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died.

45 And when he learned from the centurion that he was dead, he granted the body to Joseph. 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.
