John 18

WNT 1 After offering this prayer Jesus went out with His disciples to a place on the further side of the Ravine of the Cedars, where there was a garden which He entered--Himself and His disciples. 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. WNT 2 Now Judas also, who at that very time was betraying Him, knew the place, for Jesus had often resorted there with His disciples. NIV 2 Now Judas, who betrayed him, knew the place, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples. WNT 3 So Judas, followed by the battalion and by a detachment of the Temple police sent by the High Priests and Pharisees, came there with torches and lamps and weapons. 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. WNT 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all that was about to befall Him, went out to meet them. "Who are you looking for?" He asked them. NIV 4 Jesus, knowing all that was going to happen to him, went out and asked them, "Who is it you want?" WNT 5 "For Jesus the Nazarene," was the answer. "I am he," He replied. (Now Judas who was betraying Him was also standing with them.) NIV 5 "Jesus of Nazareth," they replied. "I am he," Jesus said. (And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.) WNT 6 As soon then as He said to them, "I am he," they went backwards and fell to the ground. NIV 6 When Jesus said, "I am he," they drew back and fell to the ground. WNT 7 Again therefore He asked them, "Who are you looking for?" "For Jesus the Nazarene," they said. NIV 7 Again he asked them, "Who is it you want?" And they said, "Jesus of Nazareth." WNT 8 "I have told you," replied Jesus, "that I am he. If therefore you are looking for me, let these my disciples go their way." NIV 8 "I told you that I am he," Jesus answered. "If you are looking for me, then let these men go." WNT 9 He made this request in order that the words He had spoken might be fulfilled, "As for those whom Thou hast given me, I have not lost one." NIV 9 This happened so that the words he had spoken would be fulfilled: "I have not lost one of those you gave me." WNT 10 Simon Peter, however, having a sword, drew it, and, aiming at the High Priest's servant, cut off his right ear. The servant's name 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.) WNT 11 Jesus therefore said to Peter, "Put back your sword. Shall I refuse to drink the cup of sorrow which the Father has given me to drink?" NIV 11 Jesus commanded Peter, "Put your sword away! Shall I not drink the cup the Father has given me?" WNT 12 So the battalion and their tribune and the Jewish police closed in, and took Jesus and bound Him. NIV 12 Then the detachment of soldiers with its commander and the Jewish officials arrested Jesus. They bound him WNT 13 They then brought Him to Annas first; for Annas 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. WNT 14 (It was this Caiaphas who had advised the Jews, saying, "It is to your interest that one man should die for 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. WNT 15 Meanwhile Simon Peter was following Jesus, and so also was another disciple. The latter was known to the High Priest, and went in with Jesus into the court of the High Priest's palace. 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, WNT 16 But Peter remained standing outside the door, till the disciple who was acquainted with the High Priest came out and induced the portress to let Peter in. 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. WNT 17 This led the girl, the portress, to ask Peter, "Are you also one of this man's disciples?" "No, I am not," he replied. NIV 17 "You are not one of his disciples, are you?" the girl at the door asked Peter. He replied, "I am not." WNT 18 Now because it was cold the servants and the police had lighted a charcoal fire, and were standing and warming themselves; and Peter too remained with them, standing and 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. WNT 19 So the High Priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and His teaching. NIV 19 Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and his teaching. WNT 20 "As for me," replied Jesus, "I have spoken openly to the world. I have continually taught in some synagogue or in the Temple where all the Jews are wont to assemble, and I have said nothing 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. WNT 21 Why do you question me? Question those who heard what it was I said to them: these witnesses here know what I said." NIV 21 Why question me? Ask those who heard me. Surely they know what I said." WNT 22 Upon His saying this, one of the officers standing by struck Him with his open hand, asking Him as he did so, "Is that the way you answer 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. WNT 23 "If I have spoken wrongly," replied Jesus, "bear witness to it as wrong; but if rightly, why that blow?" 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?" WNT 24 So Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the High Priest. NIV 24 Then Annas sent him, still bound, to Caiaphas the high priest. WNT 25 But Simon Peter remained standing and warming himself, and this led to their asking him, "Are you also one of his disciples?" He denied it, and said, "No, I am not." 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." WNT 26 One of the High Priest's servants, a relative of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, said, "Did I not see you in the garden with him?" 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?" WNT 27 Once more Peter denied it, and immediately a cock crowed. NIV 27 Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow. WNT 28 So they brought Jesus from Caiaphas's house to the Praetorium. It was the early morning, and they would not enter the Praetorium themselves for fear of defilement, and in order that they might be able to eat the Passover. 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. WNT 29 Accordingly Pilate came out to them and inquired, "What accusation have you to bring against this man?" NIV 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?" WNT 30 "If the man were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you." NIV 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you." WNT 31 "Take him yourselves," said Pilate, "and judge him by your Law." "We have no power," replied the Jews, "to put any man 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. WNT 32 They said this that the words might be fulfilled in which Jesus predicted the kind of death He was to 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. WNT 33 Re-entering the Praetorium, therefore, Pilate called Jesus and asked Him, "Are *you* the King of the Jews?" NIV 33 Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" WNT 34 "Do you say this of yourself, or have others told it you about me?" replied Jesus. NIV 34 "Is that your own idea," Jesus asked, "or did others talk to you about me?" WNT 35 "Am I a Jew?" exclaimed Pilate; "it is your own nation and the High Priests who have 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?" WNT 36 "My kingdom," replied Jesus, "does not belong to this world. If my kingdom did belong to this world, my subjects would have resolutely fought to save me from being delivered up to the Jews. But, as a matter of fact, my kingdom has not this origin." 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." WNT 37 "So then *you* are a king!" rejoined Pilate. "Yes," said Jesus, "you say truly that I am a king. For this purpose I was born, and for this purpose I have come into the world--to give testimony for the truth. Every one who is a friend of the truth listens to my voice." 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." WNT 38 "What is truth?" said Pilate. But no sooner had he spoken the words than he went out again to the Jews and told them, "I find no crime in 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. WNT 39 But you have a custom that I should release one prisoner to you at the Passover. So shall I release to 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'?" WNT 40 With a roar of voices they again cried out, saying, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a robber. NIV 40 They shouted back, "No, not him! Give us Barabbas!" Now Barabbas had taken part in a rebellion.
