Matthew 27

NLT 1 Very early in the morning the leading priests and the elders of the people met again to lay plans for putting Jesus to death. NIV 1 Early in the morning, all the chief priests and the elders of the people came to the decision to put Jesus to death. NLT 2 Then they bound him, led him away, and took him to Pilate, the Roman governor. NIV 2 They bound him, led him away and handed him over to Pilate, the governor. NLT 3 When Judas, who had betrayed him, realized that Jesus had been condemned to die, he was filled with remorse. So he took the thirty pieces of silver back to the leading priests and the elders. NIV 3 When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and the elders. NLT 4 “I have sinned,” he declared, “for I have betrayed an innocent man.” “What do we care?” they retorted. “That’s your problem.” NIV 4 "I have sinned," he said, "for I have betrayed innocent blood." "What is that to us?" they replied. "That's your responsibility." NLT 5 Then Judas threw the silver coins down in the Temple and went out and hanged himself. NIV 5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself. NLT 6 The leading priests picked up the coins. “It wouldn’t be right to put this money in the Temple treasury,” they said, “since it was payment for murder.” NIV 6 The chief priests picked up the coins and said, "It is against the law to put this into the treasury, since it is blood money." NLT 7 After some discussion they finally decided to buy the potter’s field, and they made it into a cemetery for foreigners. NIV 7 So they decided to use the money to buy the potter's field as a burial place for foreigners. NLT 8 That is why the field is still called the Field of Blood. NIV 8 That is why it has been called the Field of Blood to this day. NLT 9 This fulfilled the prophecy of Jeremiah that says, “They took the thirty pieces of silver— the price at which he was valued by the people of Israel, NIV 9 Then what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet was fulfilled: "They took the thirty silver coins, the price set on him by the people of Israel, NLT 10 and purchased the potter’s field, as the LORD directed. ” NIV 10 and they used them to buy the potter's field, as the Lord commanded me." NLT 11 Now Jesus was standing before Pilate, the Roman governor. “Are you the king of the Jews?” the governor asked him. Jesus replied, “You have said it.” NIV 11 Meanwhile Jesus stood before the governor, and the governor asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied. NLT 12 But when the leading priests and the elders made their accusations against him, Jesus remained silent. NIV 12 When he was accused by the chief priests and the elders, he gave no answer. NLT 13 “Don’t you hear all these charges they are bringing against you?” Pilate demanded. NIV 13 Then Pilate asked him, "Don't you hear the testimony they are bringing against you?" NLT 14 But Jesus made no response to any of the charges, much to the governor’s surprise. NIV 14 But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor. NLT 15 Now it was the governor’s custom each year during the Passover celebration to release one prisoner to the crowd—anyone they wanted. NIV 15 Now it was the governor's custom at the Feast to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. NLT 16 This year there was a notorious prisoner, a man named Barabbas. NIV 16 At that time they had a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas. NLT 17 As the crowds gathered before Pilate’s house that morning, he asked them, “Which one do you want me to release to you—Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Messiah?” NIV 17 So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, "Which one do you want me to release to you: Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?" NLT 18 (He knew very well that the religious leaders had arrested Jesus out of envy.) NIV 18 For he knew it was out of envy that they had handed Jesus over to him. NLT 19 Just then, as Pilate was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent him this message: “Leave that innocent man alone. I suffered through a terrible nightmare about him last night.” NIV 19 While Pilate was sitting on the judge's seat, his wife sent him this message: "Don't have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him." NLT 20 Meanwhile, the leading priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas to be released and for Jesus to be put to death. NIV 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed. NLT 21 So the governor asked again, “Which of these two do you want me to release to you?” The crowd shouted back, “Barabbas!” NIV 21 "Which of the two do you want me to release to you?" asked the governor. "Barabbas," they answered. NLT 22 Pilate responded, “Then what should I do with Jesus who is called the Messiah?” They shouted back, “Crucify him!” NIV 22 "What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?" Pilate asked. They all answered, "Crucify him!" NLT 23 “Why?” Pilate demanded. “What crime has he committed?” But the mob roared even louder, “Crucify him!” NIV 23 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!" NLT 24 Pilate saw that he wasn’t getting anywhere and that a riot was developing. So he sent for a bowl of water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man’s blood. The responsibility is yours!” NIV 24 When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. "I am innocent of this man's blood," he said. "It is your responsibility!" NLT 25 And all the people yelled back, “We will take responsibility for his death—we and our children!” NIV 25 All the people answered, "Let his blood be on us and on our children!" NLT 26 So 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 26 Then he released Barabbas to them. But he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified. NLT 27 Some of the governor’s soldiers took Jesus into their headquarters and called out the entire regiment. NIV 27 Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him. NLT 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him. NIV 28 They stripped him and put a scarlet robe on him, NLT 29 They wove thorn branches into a crown and put it on his head, and they placed a reed stick in his right hand as a scepter. Then they knelt before him in mockery and taunted, “Hail! King of the Jews!” NIV 29 and then twisted together a crown of thorns and set it on his head. They put a staff in his right hand and knelt in front of him and mocked him. "Hail, king of the Jews!" they said. NLT 30 And they spit on him and grabbed the stick and struck him on the head with it. NIV 30 They spit on him, and took the staff and struck him on the head again and again. NLT 31 When they were finally tired of mocking him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him again. Then they led him away to be crucified. NIV 31 After they had mocked him, they took off the robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him away to crucify him. NLT 32 Along the way, they came across a man named Simon, who was from Cyrene, and the soldiers forced him to carry Jesus’ cross. NIV 32 As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. NLT 33 And they went out to a place called Golgotha (which means “Place of the Skull”). NIV 33 They came to a place called Golgotha (which means The Place of the Skull). NLT 34 The soldiers gave Jesus wine mixed with bitter gall, but when he had tasted it, he refused to drink it. NIV 34 There they offered Jesus wine to drink, mixed with gall; but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. NLT 35 After they had nailed him to the cross, the soldiers gambled for his clothes by throwing dice. NIV 35 When they had crucified him, they divided up his clothes by casting lots. NLT 36 Then they sat around and kept guard as he hung there. NIV 36 And sitting down, they kept watch over him there. NLT 37 A sign was fastened above Jesus’ head, announcing the charge against him. It read: “This is Jesus, the King of the Jews.” NIV 37 Above his head they placed the written charge against him: THIS IS JESUS, THE KING OF THE JEWS. NLT 38 Two revolutionaries were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. NIV 38 Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. NLT 39 The people passing by shouted abuse, shaking their heads in mockery. NIV 39 Those who passed by hurled insults at him, shaking their heads NLT 40 “Look at you now!” they yelled at him. “You said you were going to destroy the Temple and rebuild it in three days. Well then, if you are the Son of God, save yourself and come down from the cross!” NIV 40 and saying, "You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, save yourself ! Come down from the cross, if you are the Son of God!" NLT 41 The leading priests, the teachers of religious law, and the elders also mocked Jesus. NIV 41 In the same way the chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. NLT 42 “He saved others,” they scoffed, “but he can’t save himself! So he is the King of Israel, is he? Let him come down from the cross right now, and we will believe in him! NIV 42 "He saved others," they said, "but he can't save himself ! He's the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. NLT 43 He trusted God, so let God rescue him now if he wants him! For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” NIV 43 He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, 'I am the Son of God.' " NLT 44 Even the revolutionaries who were crucified with him ridiculed him in the same way. NIV 44 In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him. NLT 45 At noon, darkness fell across the whole land until three o’clock. NIV 45 From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land. NLT 46 At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”27:46b Ps 22:1. NIV 46 About 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 47 Some of the bystanders misunderstood and thought he was calling for the prophet Elijah. NIV 47 When some of those standing there heard this, they said, "He's calling Elijah." NLT 48 One of them ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, holding it up to him on a reed stick so he could drink. NIV 48 Immediately one of them ran and got a sponge. He filled it with wine vinegar, put it on a stick, and offered it to Jesus to drink. NLT 49 But the rest said, “Wait! Let’s see whether Elijah comes to save him.” NIV 49 The rest said, "Now leave him alone. Let's see if Elijah comes to save him." NLT 50 Then Jesus shouted out again, and he released his spirit. NIV 50 And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. NLT 51 At that moment the curtain in the sanctuary of the Temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. The earth shook, rocks split apart, NIV 51 At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks split. NLT 52 and tombs opened. The bodies of many godly men and women who had died were raised from the dead. NIV 52 The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. NLT 53 They left the cemetery after Jesus’ resurrection, went into the holy city of Jerusalem, and appeared to many people. NIV 53 They came out of the tombs, and after Jesus' resurrection they went into the holy city and appeared to many people. NLT 54 The Roman officer and the other soldiers at the crucifixion were terrified by the earthquake and all that had happened. They said, “This man truly was the Son of God!” NIV 54 When the centurion and those with him who were guarding Jesus saw the earthquake and all that had happened, they were terrified, and exclaimed, "Surely he was the Son of God!" NLT 55 And many women who had come from Galilee with Jesus to care for him were watching from a distance. NIV 55 Many women were there, watching from a distance. They had followed Jesus from Galilee to care for his needs. NLT 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary (the mother of James and Joseph), and the mother of James and John, the sons of Zebedee. NIV 56 Among them were Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's sons. NLT 57 As evening approached, Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea who had become a follower of Jesus, NIV 57 As evening approached, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who had himself become a disciple of Jesus. NLT 58 went to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. And Pilate issued an order to release it to him. NIV 58 Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus' body, and Pilate ordered that it be given to him. NLT 59 Joseph took the body and wrapped it in a long sheet of clean linen cloth.

Then he rolled a great stone across the entrance and left. NIV 60 and placed it in his own new tomb that he had cut out of the rock. He rolled a big stone in front of the entrance to the tomb and went away. NLT 61 Both Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting across from the tomb and watching. NIV 61 Mary Magdalene and the other Mary were sitting there opposite the tomb. NLT 62 The next day, on the Sabbath, the leading priests and Pharisees went to see Pilate. NIV 62 The next day, the one after Preparation Day, the chief priests and the Pharisees went to Pilate. NLT 63 They told him, “Sir, we remember what that deceiver once said while he was still alive: ‘After three days I will rise from the dead.’ NIV 63 "Sir," they said, "we remember that while he was still alive that deceiver said, 'After three days I will rise again.' NLT 64 So we request that you seal the tomb until the third day. This will prevent his disciples from coming and stealing his body and then telling everyone he was raised from the dead! If that happens, we’ll be worse off than we were at first.” NIV 64 So give the order for the tomb to be made secure until the third day. Otherwise, his disciples may come and steal the body and tell the people that he has been raised from the dead. This last deception will be worse than the first." NLT 65 Pilate replied, “Take guards and secure it the best you can.” NIV 65 "Take a guard," Pilate answered. "Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how." NLT 66 So they sealed the tomb and posted guards to protect it. NIV 66 So they went and made the tomb secure by putting a seal on the stone and posting the guard.
