CEB 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. NRS 1 After Jesus had spoken these words, he went out with his disciples across the Kidron valley to a place where there was a garden, which he and his disciples entered. CEB 2 Judas, his betrayer, also knew the place because Jesus often gathered there with his disciples. NRS 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, also knew the place, because Jesus often met there with his disciples. CEB 3 Judas brought a company of soldiers and some guards from the chief priests and Pharisees. They came there carrying lanterns, torches, and weapons. NRS 3 So Judas brought a detachment of soldiers together with police from the chief priests and the Pharisees, and they came there with lanterns and torches and weapons. CEB 4 Jesus knew everything that was to happen to him, so he went out and asked, "Who are you looking for?" NRS 4 Then Jesus, knowing all that was to happen to him, came forward and asked them, "Whom are you looking for?" CEB 5 They answered, "Jesus the Nazarene." He said to them, "I Am." (Judas, his betrayer, was standing with them.) NRS 5 They answered, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus replied, "I am he." Judas, who betrayed him, was standing with them. CEB 6 When he said, "I Am," they shrank back and fell to the ground. NRS 6 When Jesus said to them, "I am he," they stepped back and fell to the ground. CEB 7 He asked them again, "Who are you looking for?" They said, "Jesus the Nazarene." NRS 7 Again he asked them, "Whom are you looking for?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." CEB 8 Jesus answered, "I told you, ‘I Am.' If you are looking for me, then let these people go." NRS 8 Jesus answered, "I told you that I am he. So if you are looking for me, let these men go." CEB 9 This was so that the word he had spoken might be fulfilled: "I didn't lose anyone of those whom you gave me." NRS 9 This was to fulfill the word that he had spoken, "I did not lose a single one of those whom you gave me." CEB 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.) NRS 10 Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it, struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear. The slave's name was Malchus. CEB 11 Jesus told Peter, "Put your sword away! Am I not to drink the cup the Father has given me?" NRS 11 Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword back into its sheath. Am I not to drink the cup that the Father has given me?" CEB 12 Then the company of soldiers, the commander, and the guards from the Jewish leaders took Jesus into custody. They bound him NRS 12 So the soldiers, their officer, and the Jewish police arrested Jesus and bound him. CEB 13 and led him first to Annas. He was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year. ( NRS 13 First they took him to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year. CEB 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jewish leaders that it was better for one person to die for the people.) NRS 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was better to have one person die for the people. CEB 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. NRS 15 Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. Since that disciple was known to the high priest, he went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest, CEB 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. NRS 16 but Peter was standing outside at the gate. So the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out, spoke to the woman who guarded the gate, and brought Peter in. CEB 17 The servant woman stationed at the gate asked Peter, "Aren't you one of this man's disciples?" "I'm not," he replied. NRS 17 The woman said to Peter, "You are not also one of this man's disciples, are you?" He said, "I am not." CEB 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. NRS 18 Now the slaves and the police had made a charcoal fire because it was cold, and they were standing around it and warming themselves. Peter also was standing with them and warming himself. CEB 19 Meanwhile, the chief priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. NRS 19 Then the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. CEB 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. NRS 20 Jesus answered, "I have spoken openly to the world; I have always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all the Jews come together. I have said nothing in secret. CEB 21 Why ask me? Ask those who heard what I told them. They know what I said." NRS 21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who heard what I said to them; they know what I said." CEB 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. NRS 22 When he had said this, one of the police standing nearby struck Jesus on the face, saying, "Is that how you answer the high priest?" CEB 23 Jesus replied, "If I speak wrongly, testify about what was wrong. But if I speak correctly, why do you strike me?" NRS 23 Jesus answered, "If I have spoken wrongly, testify to the wrong. But if I have spoken rightly, why do you strike me?" CEB 24 Then Annas sent him, bound, to Caiaphas the high priest. NRS 24 Then Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest. CEB 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." NRS 25 Now Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. They asked him, "You are not also one of his disciples, are you?" He denied it and said, "I am not." CEB 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?" NRS 26 One of the slaves of the high priest, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, asked, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?" CEB 27 Peter denied it again, and immediately a rooster crowed. NRS 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment the cock crowed. CEB 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. NRS 28 Then they took Jesus from Caiaphas to Pilate's headquarters. It was early in the morning. They themselves did not enter the headquarters, so as to avoid ritual defilement and to be able to eat the Passover. CEB 29 So Pilate went out to them and asked, "What charge do you bring against this man?" NRS 29 So Pilate went out to them and said, "What accusation do you bring against this man?" CEB 30 They answered, "If he had done nothing wrong, we wouldn't have handed him over to you." NRS 30 They answered, "If this man were not a criminal, we would not have handed him over to you." CEB 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." ( NRS 31 Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves and judge him according to your law." The Jews replied, "We are not permitted to put anyone to death." CEB 32 This was so that Jesus' word might be fulfilled when he indicated how he was going to die.) NRS 32 (This was to fulfill what Jesus had said when he indicated the kind of death he was to die.) CEB 33 Pilate went back into the palace. He summoned Jesus and asked, "Are you the king of the Jews?" NRS 33 Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" CEB 34 Jesus answered, "Do you say this on your own or have others spoken to you about me?" NRS 34 Jesus answered, "Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?" CEB 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?" NRS 35 Pilate replied, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?" CEB 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." NRS 36 Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here." CEB 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." NRS 37 Pilate asked him, "So you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." CEB 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. NRS 38 Pilate asked him, "What is truth?" After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again and told them, "I find no case against him. CEB 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?" NRS 39 But you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover. Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?" CEB 40 They shouted, "Not this man! Give us Barabbas!" (Barabbas was an outlaw.) NRS 40 They shouted in reply, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a bandit.
