John 18

GNT 1 After Jesus had said this prayer, he left with his disciples and went across Kidron Brook. There was a garden in that place, and Jesus and his disciples went in. NIV 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. GNT 2 Judas, the traitor, knew where it was, because many times Jesus had met there with his disciples. NIV 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. GNT 3 So Judas went to the garden, taking with him a group of Roman soldiers, and some Temple guards sent by the chief priests and the Pharisees; they were armed and carried lanterns and torches. NIV 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. GNT 4 Jesus knew everything that was going to happen to him, so he stepped forward and asked them, "Who is it you are looking for?" NIV 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?" GNT 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they answered. "I am he," he said. Judas, the traitor, was standing there with them. NIV 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) GNT 6 When Jesus said to them, "I am he," they moved back and fell to the ground. NIV 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground. GNT 7 Again Jesus asked them, "Who is it you are looking for?" "Jesus of Nazareth," they said. NIV 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." GNT 8 "I have already told you that I am he," Jesus said. "If, then, you are looking for me, let these others go. NIV 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go." GNT 9 (He said this so that what he had said might come true: "Father, I have not lost even one of those you gave me.") NIV 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me." GNT 10 Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it and struck the High Priest's slave, cutting off his right ear. The name of the slave was Malchus. NIV 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.) GNT 11 Jesus said to Peter, "Put your sword back in its place! Do you think that I will not drink the cup of suffering which my Father has given me?" NIV 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?" GNT 12 Then the Roman soldiers with their commanding officer and the Jewish guards arrested Jesus, tied him up, NIV 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him GNT 13 and took him first to Annas. He was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was High Priest that year. NIV 13 and brought him first to Annas, who was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest that year. GNT 14 It was Caiaphas who had advised the Jewish authorities that it was better that one man should die for all the people. NIV 14 Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it would be good if one man died for the people. GNT 15 Simon Peter and another disciple followed Jesus. That other disciple was well known to the High Priest, so he went with Jesus into the courtyard of the High Priest's house, NIV 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, GNT 16 while Peter stayed outside by the gate. Then the other disciple went back out, spoke to the girl at the gate, and brought Peter inside. NIV 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. GNT 17 The girl at the gate said to Peter, "Aren't you also one of the disciples of that man?" "No, I am not," answered Peter. NIV 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not." GNT 18 It was cold, so the servants and guards had built a charcoal fire and were standing around it, warming themselves. So Peter went over and stood with them, warming himself. NIV 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. GNT 19 The High Priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching. NIV 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. GNT 20 Jesus answered, "I have always spoken publicly to everyone; all my teaching was done in the synagogues and in the Temple, where all the people come together. I have never said anything in secret. NIV 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. GNT 21 Why, then, do you question me? Question the people who heard me. Ask them what I told them - they know what I said." NIV 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said." GNT 22 When Jesus said this, one of the guards there slapped him and said, "How dare you talk like that to the High Priest!" NIV 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. GNT 23 Jesus answered him, "If I have said anything wrong, tell everyone here what it was. But if I am right in what I have said, why do you hit me?" NIV 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?" GNT 24 Then Annas sent him, still tied up, to Caiaphas the High Priest. NIV 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest. GNT 25 Peter was still standing there keeping himself warm. So the others said to him, "Aren't you also one of the disciples of that man?" But Peter denied it. "No, I am not," he said. NIV 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." GNT 26 One of the High Priest's slaves, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, spoke up. "Didn't I see you with him in the garden?" he asked. NIV 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?" GNT 27 Again Peter said "No" - and at once a rooster crowed. NIV 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow. GNT 28 Early in the morning Jesus was taken from Caiaphas' house to the governor's palace. The Jewish authorities did not go inside the palace, for they wanted to keep themselves ritually clean, in order to be able to eat the Passover meal. NIV 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. GNT 29 So Pilate went outside to them and asked, "What do you accuse this man of?" NIV 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?" GNT 30 Their answer was, "We would not have brought him to you if he had not committed a crime." NIV 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you." GNT 31 Pilate said to them, "Then you yourselves take him and try him according to your own law." They replied, "We are not allowed to put anyone to death. NIV 31 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law." "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected. GNT 32 (This happened in order to make come true what Jesus had said when he indicated the kind of death he would die.) NIV 32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled. GNT 33 Pilate went back into the palace and called Jesus. "Are you the king of the Jews?" he asked him. NIV 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" GNT 34 Jesus answered, "Does this question come from you or have others told you about me?" NIV 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?" GNT 35 Pilate replied, "Do you think I am a Jew? It was your own people and the chief priests who handed you over to me. What have you done?" NIV 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?" GNT 36 Jesus said, "My kingdom does not belong to this world; if my kingdom belonged to this world, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. No, my kingdom does not belong here!" NIV 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." GNT 37 So Pilate asked him, "Are you a king, then?" Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. I was born and came into the world for this one purpose, to speak about the truth. Whoever belongs to the truth listens to me." NIV 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." GNT 38 "And what is truth?" Pilate asked. Then Pilate went back outside to the people and said to them, "I cannot find any reason to condemn him. NIV 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. GNT 39 But according to the custom you have, I always set free a prisoner for you during the Passover. Do you want me to set free for you the king of the Jews?" NIV 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'?" GNT 40 They answered him with a shout, "No, not him! We want Barabbas!" (Barabbas was a bandit.) NIV 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
