Mark 15

NLT 1 Very early in the morning the leading priests, other leaders, and teachers of religious law -- the entire high council -- met to discuss their next step. They bound Jesus 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, "Yes, it is as you say." 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 accused 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 say something? What about all these charges 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 to release one prisoner each year at Passover time -- 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, convicted along with others for murder during an insurrection. NIV 7 A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising. NLT 8 The mob began to crowd in toward Pilate, asking 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 "Should I give you the 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 mob 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 "But if I release Barabbas," Pilate asked them, "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 crowd only roared the louder, "Crucify him!" NIV 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" NLT 15 So Pilate, anxious to please the crowd, released Barabbas to them. He ordered Jesus flogged with a lead-tipped whip, then turned him over to the Roman soldiers to crucify him. 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 him into their headquarters and called out the entire battalion. 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 made a crown of long, sharp thorns 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, yelling, "Hail! King of the Jews!" NIV 18 And they began to call out to him, "Hail, king of the Jews!" NLT 19 And they beat him on the head with a 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 man named Simon, who was from Cyrene, was coming in from the country just then, and they forced him to carry Jesus' cross. (Simon is 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 Skull Hill). 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 they nailed him to the cross. They gambled for his clothes, throwing dice to decide who would get them. 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 the crucifixion took place. NIV 25 It was the third hour when they crucified him.

Look at you now!" they yelled at him. "You can destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days, can you? 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 two criminals who were being 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 that time Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?" which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

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.
