CEB 1 The whole assembly got up and led Jesus to Pilate and NRS 1 Then the assembly rose as a body and brought Jesus before Pilate. CEB 2 began to accuse him. They said, "We have found this man misleading our people, opposing the payment of taxes to Caesar, and claiming that he is the Christ, a king." NRS 2 They began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man perverting our nation, forbidding us to pay taxes to the emperor, and saying that he himself is the Messiah, a king." CEB 3 Pilate asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" Jesus replied, "That's what you say." NRS 3 Then Pilate asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" He answered, "You say so." CEB 4 Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no legal basis for action against this man." NRS 4 Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no basis for an accusation against this man. CEB 5 But they objected strenuously, saying, "He agitates the people with his teaching throughout Judea—starting from Galilee all the way here." NRS 5 But they were insistent and said, "He stirs up the people by teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee where he began even to this place." CEB 6 Hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean. NRS 6 When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. CEB 7 When he learned that Jesus was from Herod's district, Pilate sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. NRS 7 And when he learned that he was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him off to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time. CEB 8 Herod was very glad to see Jesus, for he had heard about Jesus and had wanted to see him for quite some time. He was hoping to see Jesus perform some sign. NRS 8 When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had been wanting to see him for a long time, because he had heard about him and was hoping to see him perform some sign. CEB 9 Herod questioned Jesus at length, but Jesus didn't respond to him. NRS 9 He questioned him at some length, but Jesus gave him no answer. CEB 10 The chief priests and the legal experts were there, fiercely accusing Jesus. NRS 10 The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing him. CEB 11 Herod and his soldiers treated Jesus with contempt. Herod mocked him by dressing Jesus in elegant clothes and sent him back to Pilate. NRS 11 Even Herod with his soldiers treated him with contempt and mocked him; then he put an elegant robe on him, and sent him back to Pilate. CEB 12 Pilate and Herod became friends with each other that day. Before this, they had been enemies. NRS 12 That same day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other; before this they had been enemies. CEB 13 Then Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people. NRS 13 Pilate then called together the chief priests, the leaders, and the people, CEB 14 He said to them, "You brought this man before me as one who was misleading the people. I have questioned him in your presence and found nothing in this man's conduct that provides a legal basis for the charges you have brought against him. NRS 14 and said to them, "You brought me this man as one who was perverting the people; and here I have examined him in your presence and have not found this man guilty of any of your charges against him CEB 15 Neither did Herod, because Herod returned him to us. He's done nothing that deserves death. NRS 15 Neither has Herod, for he sent him back to us. Indeed, he has done nothing to deserve death. CEB 16 Therefore, I'll have him whipped, then let him go." NRS 16 I will therefore have him flogged and release him." CEB 18 But with one voice they shouted, "Away with this man! Release Barabbas to us." ( NRS 18 Then they all shouted out together, "Away with this fellow! Release Barabbas for us!" CEB 19 Barabbas had been thrown into prison because of a riot that had occurred in the city, and for murder.) NRS 19 (This was a man who had been put in prison for an insurrection that had taken place in the city, and for murder. CEB 20 Pilate addressed them again because he wanted to release Jesus. NRS 20 Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again; CEB 21 They kept shouting out, "Crucify him! Crucify him!" NRS 21 but they kept shouting, "Crucify, crucify him! CEB 22 For the third time, Pilate said to them, "Why? What wrong has he done? I've found no legal basis for the death penalty in his case. Therefore, I will have him whipped, then let him go." NRS 22 A third time he said to them, "Why, what evil has he done? I have found in him no ground for the sentence of death; I will therefore have him flogged and then release him." CEB 23 But they were adamant, shouting their demand that Jesus be crucified. Their voices won out. NRS 23 But they kept urgently demanding with loud shouts that he should be crucified; and their voices prevailed. CEB 24 Pilate issued his decision to grant their request. NRS 24 So Pilate gave his verdict that their demand should be granted. CEB 25 He released the one they asked for, who had been thrown into prison because of a riot and murder. But he handed Jesus over to their will. NRS 25 He released the man they asked for, the one who had been put in prison for insurrection and murder, and he handed Jesus over as they wished. CEB 26 As they led Jesus away, they grabbed Simon, a man from Cyrene, who was coming in from the countryside. They put the cross on his back and made him carry it behind Jesus. NRS 26 As they led him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, and they laid the cross on him, and made him carry it behind Jesus. CEB 27 A huge crowd of people followed Jesus, including women, who were mourning and wailing for him. NRS 27 A great number of the people followed him, and among them were women who were beating their breasts and wailing for him. CEB 28 Jesus turned to the women and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, don't cry for me. Rather, cry for yourselves and your children. NRS 28 But Jesus turned to them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. CEB 29 The time will come when they will say, ‘Happy are those who are unable to become pregnant, the wombs that never gave birth, and the breasts that never nursed a child.' NRS 29 For the days are surely coming when they will say, "Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.' CEB 30 Then they will say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,' and to the hills, ‘Cover us.' NRS 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, "Fall on us'; and to the hills, "Cover us.' CEB 31 If they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?" NRS 31 For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?" CEB 32 They also led two other criminals to be executed with Jesus. NRS 32 Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. CEB 33 When they arrived at the place called The Skull, they crucified him, along with the criminals, one on his right and the other on his left. NRS 33 When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. CEB 34 Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they're doing." They drew lots as a way of dividing up his clothing. NRS 34 [Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."] And they cast lots to divide his clothing. CEB 35 The people were standing around watching, but the leaders sneered at him, saying, "He saved others. Let him save himself if he really is the Christ sent from God, the chosen one." NRS 35 And the people stood by, watching; but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!" CEB 36 The soldiers also mocked him. They came up to him, offering him sour wine NRS 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine CEB 37 and saying, "If you really are the king of the Jews, save yourself." NRS 37 and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" CEB 38 Above his head was a notice of the formal charge against him. It read "This is the king of the Jews." NRS 38 There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews. CEB 39 One of the criminals hanging next to Jesus insulted him: "Aren't you the Christ? Save yourself and us!" NRS 39 One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, "Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!" CEB 40 Responding, the other criminal spoke harshly to him, "Don't you fear God, seeing that you've also been sentenced to die? NRS 40 But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? CEB 41 We are rightly condemned, for we are receiving the appropriate sentence for what we did. But this man has done nothing wrong." NRS 41 And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong." CEB 42 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." NRS 42 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." CEB 43 Jesus replied, "I assure you that today you will be with me in paradise." NRS 43 He replied, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise." CEB 44 It was now about noon, and darkness covered the whole earth until about three o'clock, NRS 44 It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, CEB 45 while the sun stopped shining. Then the curtain in the sanctuary tore down the middle. NRS 45 while the sun's light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. CEB 46 Crying out in a loud voice, Jesus said, "Father, into your hands I entrust my life." After he said this, he breathed for the last time. NRS 46 Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." Having said this, he breathed his last. CEB 47 When the centurion saw what happened, he praised God, saying, "It's really true: this man was righteous." NRS 47 When the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God and said, "Certainly this man was innocent." CEB 48 All the crowds who had come together to see this event returned to their homes beating their chests after seeing what had happened. NRS 48 And when all the crowds who had gathered there for this spectacle saw what had taken place, they returned home, beating their breasts. CEB 49 And everyone who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance observing these things. NRS 49 But all his acquaintances, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.
