Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
1 After he said these things, Jesus went out with his disciples and crossed over to the other side of the Kidron Valley. He and his disciples entered a garden there. 1 When he had finished praying, Jesus left with his disciples and crossed the Kidron Valley. On the other side there was an olive grove, and he and his disciples went into it.
2 Judas, his betrayer, also knew the place because Jesus often gathered there with his disciples. 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.
3 Judas brought a company of soldiers and some guards from the chief priests and Pharisees. They came there carrying lanterns, torches, and weapons. 3 So Judas came to the grove, guiding a detachment of soldiers and some officials from the chief priests and Pharisees. They were carrying torches, lanterns and weapons.
4 Jesus knew everything that was to happen to him, so he went out and asked, "Who are you looking for?" 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?"
5 They answered, "Jesus the Nazarene." He said to them, "I Am." (Judas, his betrayer, was standing with them.) 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.)
6 When he said, "I Am," they shrank back and fell to the ground. 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground.
7 He asked them again, "Who are you looking for?" They said, "Jesus the Nazarene." 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth."
8 Jesus answered, "I told you, ‘I Am.' If you are looking for me, then let these people go." 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go."
9 This was so that the word he had spoken might be fulfilled: "I didn't lose anyone of those whom you gave me." 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me."
10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.) 10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. (The servant's name was Malchus.)
11 Jesus told Peter, "Put your sword away! Am I not to drink the cup the Father has given me?" 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?"
12 Then the company of soldiers, the commander, and the guards from the Jewish leaders took Jesus into custody. They bound him 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him
13 and led him first to Annas. He was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year. ( 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year.
14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jewish leaders that it was better for one person to die for the people.) 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people.
15 Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. Because this other disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard. 15 Simon Peter and another disciple were following Jesus. Because this disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard,
16 However, Peter stood outside near the gate. Then the other disciple (the one known to the high priest) came out and spoke to the woman stationed at the gate, and she brought Peter in. 16 but Peter had to wait outside at the door. The other disciple, who was known to the high priest, came back, spoke to the girl on duty there and brought Peter in.
17 The servant woman stationed at the gate asked Peter, "Aren't you one of this man's disciples?" "I'm not," he replied. 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not."
18 The servants and the guards had made a fire because it was cold. They were standing around it, warming themselves. Peter joined them there, standing by the fire and warming himself. 18 It was cold, and the servants and officials stood around a fire they had made to keep warm. Peter also was standing with them, warming himself.
19 Meanwhile, the chief priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching.
20 Jesus answered, "I've spoken openly to the world. I've always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all the Jews gather. I've said nothing in private. 20 "I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus replied. "I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where all the Jews come together. I said nothing in secret.
21 Why ask me? Ask those who heard what I told them. They know what I said." 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said."
22 After Jesus spoke, one of the guards standing there slapped Jesus in the face. "Is that how you would answer the high priest?" he asked. 22 When Jesus said this, one of the officials nearby struck him in the face. "Is this the way you answer the high priest?" he demanded.
23 Jesus replied, "If I speak wrongly, testify about what was wrong. But if I speak correctly, why do you strike me?" 23 "If I said something wrong," Jesus replied, "testify as to what is wrong. But if I spoke the truth, why did you strike me?"
24 Then Annas sent him, bound, to Caiaphas the high priest. 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest.
25 Meanwhile, Simon Peter was still standing with the guards, warming himself. They asked, "Aren't you one of his disciples?" Peter denied it, saying, "I'm not." 25 As Simon Peter stood warming himself, he was asked, "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it, saying, "I am not."
26 A servant of the high priest, a relative of the one whose ear Peter had cut off, said to him, "Didn't I see you in the garden with him?" 26 One of the high priest's servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, challenged him, "Didn't I see you with him in the olive grove?"
27 Peter denied it again, and immediately a rooster crowed. 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.
28 The Jewish leaders led Jesus from Caiaphas to the Roman governor's palace. It was early in the morning. So that they could eat the Passover, the Jewish leaders wouldn't enter the palace; entering the palace would have made them ritually impure. 28 Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.
29 So Pilate went out to them and asked, "What charge do you bring against this man?" 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
30 They answered, "If he had done nothing wrong, we wouldn't have handed him over to you." 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."
31 Pilate responded, "Take him yourselves and judge him according to your Law." The Jewish leaders replied, "The Law doesn't allow us to kill anyone." ( 31 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected.
32 This was so that Jesus' word might be fulfilled when he indicated how he was going to die.) 32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.
33 Pilate went back into the palace. He summoned Jesus and asked, "Are you the king of the Jews?" 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
34 Jesus answered, "Do you say this on your own or have others spoken to you about me?" 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?"
35 Pilate responded, "I'm not a Jew, am I? Your nation and its chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?" 35 "Am I a Jew?" Pilate replied. "It was your people and your chief priests who handed you over to me. What is it you have done?"
36 Jesus replied, "My kingdom doesn't originate from this world. If it did, my guards would fight so that I wouldn't have been arrested by the Jewish leaders. My kingdom isn't from here." 36 Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jews. But now my kingdom is from another place."
37 "So you are a king?" Pilate said. Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. I was born and came into the world for this reason: to testify to the truth. Whoever accepts the truth listens to my voice." 37 "You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
38 "What is truth?" Pilate asked. After Pilate said this, he returned to the Jewish leaders and said, "I find no grounds for any charge against him. 38 "What is truth?" Pilate asked. With this he went out again to the Jews and said, "I find no basis for a charge against him.
39 You have a custom that I release one prisoner for you at Passover. Do you want me to release for you the king of the Jews?" 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release 'the king of the Jews'?"
40 They shouted, "Not this man! Give us Barabbas!" (Barabbas was an outlaw.) 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
