Mark 15

NLT 1 Very early in the morning the leading priests, the elders, and the teachers of religious law—the entire high council —met to discuss their next step. They bound Jesus, led him away, and took him to Pilate, the Roman governor. NIV 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. NLT 2 Pilate asked Jesus, “Are you the king of the Jews?” Jesus replied, “You have said it.” NIV 2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. NLT 3 Then the leading priests kept accusing him of many crimes, NIV 3 The chief priests accused him of many things. NLT 4 and Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer them? What about all these charges they are bringing against you?” NIV 4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of." NLT 5 But Jesus said nothing, much to Pilate’s surprise. NIV 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed. NLT 6 Now it was the governor’s custom each year during the Passover celebration to release one prisoner—anyone the people requested. NIV 6 Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested. NLT 7 One of the prisoners at that time was Barabbas, a revolutionary who had committed murder in an uprising. NIV 7 A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising. NLT 8 The crowd went to Pilate and asked him to release a prisoner as usual. NIV 8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did. NLT 9 “Would you like me to release to you this ‘King of the Jews’?” Pilate asked. NIV 9 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate, NLT 10 (For he realized by now that the leading priests had arrested Jesus out of envy.) NIV 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him. NLT 11 But at this point the leading priests stirred up the crowd to demand the release of Barabbas instead of Jesus. NIV 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead. NLT 12 Pilate asked them, “Then what should I do with this man you call the king of the Jews?” NIV 12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them. NLT 13 They shouted back, “Crucify him!” NIV 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted. NLT 14 “Why?” Pilate demanded. “What crime has he committed?” But the mob roared even louder, “Crucify him!” NIV 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" NLT 15 So to pacify the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to be crucified. NIV 15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. NLT 16 The soldiers took Jesus into the courtyard of the governor’s headquarters (called the Praetorium) and called out the entire regiment. NIV 16 The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace (that is, the Praetorium) and called together the whole company of soldiers. NLT 17 They dressed him in a purple robe, and they wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head. NIV 17 They put a purple robe on him, then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on him. NLT 18 Then they saluted him and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” NIV 18 And they began to call out to him, "Hail, king of the Jews!" NLT 19 And they struck him on the head with a reed stick, spit on him, and dropped to their knees in mock worship. NIV 19 Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him. NLT 20 When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified. NIV 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him. NLT 21 A passerby named Simon, who was from Cyrene, was coming in from the countryside just then, and the soldiers forced him to carry Jesus’ cross. (Simon was the father of Alexander and Rufus.) NIV 21 A certain man from Cyrene, Simon, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they forced him to carry the cross. NLT 22 And they brought Jesus to a place called Golgotha (which means “Place of the Skull”). NIV 22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). NLT 23 They offered him wine drugged with myrrh, but he refused it. NIV 23 Then they offered him wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it. NLT 24 Then the soldiers nailed him to the cross. They divided his clothes and threw dice to decide who would get each piece. NIV 24 And they crucified him. Dividing up his clothes, they cast lots to see what each would get. NLT 25 It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified him. NIV 25 It was the third hour when they crucified him. NLT 26 A sign announced the charge against him. It read, “The King of the Jews.” NIV 26 The written notice of the charge against him read: the king of the jews. NLT 27 Two revolutionaries were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. NIV 27 They crucified two robbers with him, one on his right and one on his left. NLT 28 NLT 29 The people passing by shouted abuse, shaking their heads in mockery. “Ha! Look at you now!” they yelled at him. “You said you were going to destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days. NIV 29 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads and saying, "So! You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, NLT 30 Well then, save yourself and come down from the cross!” NIV 30 come down from the cross and save yourself !" NLT 31 The leading priests and teachers of religious law also mocked Jesus. “He saved others,” they scoffed, “but he can’t save himself! NIV 31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law mocked him among themselves. "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself ! NLT 32 Let this Messiah, this King of Israel, come down from the cross so we can see it and believe him!” Even the men who were crucified with Jesus ridiculed him. NIV 32 Let this Christ, this King of Israel, come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe." Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him. NLT 33 At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o’clock. NIV 33 At the sixth hour darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour. NLT 34 Then at three o’clock Jesus called out with a loud voice, which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” NIV 34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ""Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? ""--which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" NLT 35 Some of the bystanders misunderstood and thought he was calling for the prophet Elijah. NIV 35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, "Listen, he's calling Elijah." NLT 36 One of them ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, holding it up to him on a reed stick so he could drink. “Wait!” he said. “Let’s see whether Elijah comes to take him down!” NIV 36 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. NLT 37 Then Jesus uttered another loud cry and breathed his last. NIV 37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last. NLT 38 And the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. NIV 38 The curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. NLT 39 When the Roman officer who stood facing him saw how he had died, he exclaimed, “This man truly was the Son of God!” NIV 39 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!" NLT 40 Some women were there, watching from a distance, including Mary Magdalene, Mary (the mother of James the younger and of Joseph ), and Salome. NIV 40 Some women were watching from a distance. Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joses, and Salome. NLT 41 They had been followers of Jesus and had cared for him while he was in Galilee. Many other women who had come with him to Jerusalem were also there. NIV 41 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. NLT 42 This all happened on Friday, the day of preparation, the day before the Sabbath. As evening approached, NIV 42 It was Preparation Day (that is, the day before the Sabbath). So as evening approached, NLT 43 Joseph of Arimathea took a risk and went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. (Joseph was an honored member of the high council, and he was waiting for the Kingdom of God to come.) NIV 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent member of the Council, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God, went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus' body. NLT 44 Pilate couldn’t believe that Jesus was already dead, so he called for the Roman officer and asked if he had died yet. NIV 44 Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead. Summoning the centurion, he asked him if Jesus had already died. NLT 45 The officer confirmed that Jesus was dead, so Pilate told Joseph he could have the body. NIV 45 When he learned from the centurion that it was so, he gave the body to Joseph. NLT 46 Joseph bought a long sheet of linen cloth. Then he took Jesus’ body down from the cross, wrapped it in the cloth, and laid it in a tomb that had been carved out of the rock. Then he rolled a stone in front of the entrance. NIV 46 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. NLT 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph saw where Jesus’ body was laid. NIV 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw where he was laid.
