1 As soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. They bound Jesus, 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 asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You say so." 2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
3 Then the chief priests accused him of many things. 3 The chief priests accused him of many things.
4 Pilate asked him again, "Have you no answer? See how many charges they bring 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 Jesus made no further reply, so that Pilate was amazed. 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.
6 Now at the festival he used to release a prisoner for them, anyone for whom they asked. 6 Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested.

8 So the crowd came and began to ask Pilate to do for them according to his custom. 8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did.
9 Then he answered them, "Do you want me to release 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 he realized that it was out of jealousy that the chief priests had handed him over. 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 Barabbas for them instead. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.
12 Pilate spoke to them again, "Then what do you wish me to 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, "Crucify him!" 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted.
14 Pilate asked 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 Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over 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.

35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they said, "Listen, he is calling for Elijah." 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 And someone ran, filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a stick, and gave it to him to drink, saying, "Wait, let us see whether Elijah will come to take him down." 36 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

38 And the curtain of 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 Now when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, "Truly this man was God's Son!" 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 also women looking on from a distance; among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome. 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 Arimathea, a respected member of the council, who was also himself waiting expectantly for the kingdom of God, went boldly 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.
44 Then Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him whether he had been dead for some time. 44 When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph.
45 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.
