Luke 23

1 The whole company of them rose up and brought him before Pilate.
2 They began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man perverting the nation, forbidding paying taxes to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Messiah, a king."
3 Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Yehudim?" He answered him, "So you say."
4 Pilate said to the chief Kohanim and the multitudes, "I find no basis for a charge against this man.
5 But they insisted, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Yehudah, beginning from the Galil even to this place."
6 But when Pilate heard Galil mentioned, he asked if the man was a Gelili.
7 When he found out that he was in Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Yerushalayim in those days.
8 Now when Herod saw Yeshua, he was exceedingly glad, for he had wanted to see him for a long time, because he had heard many things about him. He hoped to see some miracle done by him.
9 He questioned him with many words, but he gave no answers.
10 The chief Kohanim and the Sofrim stood, vehemently accusing him.
11 Herod with his soldiers humiliated him and mocked him. Dressing him in luxurious clothing, they sent him back to Pilate.
12 Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before that they were enemies with each other.
13 Pilate called together the chief Kohanim and the rulers and the people,
14 and said to them, "You brought this man to me as one that perverts the people, and see, I have examined him before you, and found no basis for a charge against this man concerning those things of which you accuse him
15 Neither has Herod, for I sent you to him, and see, nothing worthy of death has been done by him.
16 I will therefore chastise him and release him."
17 Now he had to release one prisoner to them at the feast.
18 But they all cried out together, saying, "Away with this man! Release to us Bar-Abba!" --
19 one who was thrown into prison for a certain revolt in the city, and for murder
20 Then Pilate spoke to them again, desiring to release Yeshua,
21 but they shouted, saying, "Crucify! Crucify him!
22 He said to them the third time, "Why? What evil has this man done? I have found no capital crime in him. I will therefore chastise him and release him."
23 But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he might be crucified. Their voices and the voices of the chief Kohanim prevailed.
24 Pilate adjudged that what they asked for should be done.
25 He released him who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Yeshua up to their will.
26 When they led him away, they grabbed one Shim`on of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to carry it after Yeshua.
27 A great multitude of the people followed him, including women who also mourned and lamented him.
28 But Yeshua, turning to them, said, "Daughters of Yerushalayim, don't weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children.
29 For behold, the days are coming in which they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.'
30 Then they will begin to tell the mountains, 'Fall on us!' and to the hills, 'Cover us.'
31 For if they do these things in the green tree, what will be done in the dry?"
32 There were also others, two criminals, led with him to be put to death.
33 When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified him there with the criminals, one on the right and the other on the left.
34 Yeshua said, "Father, forgive them, for they don't know what they are doing." Dividing his garments among them, they cast lots.
35 The people stood watching. The rulers with them also scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others. Let him save himself, if this is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!"
36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming to him and offering him vinegar
37 and saying, "If you are the King of the Yehudim, save yourself!"
38 An inscription was also written over him in letters of Yevanit, Latin, and Hebrew: "THIS IS THE KING OF THE YEHUDIM.
39 One of the criminals who was hanged insulted him, saying, "If you are the Messiah, save yourself and us!"
40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Don't you even fear God, seeing you are in the same condemnation?
41 And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong."
42 He said to Yeshua, "Lord, remember me when you come into your kingdom."
43 Yeshua said to him, "Assuredly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise."
44 It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour.
45 The sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was torn in two.
46 Yeshua, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!" Having said this, he breathed his last.
47 When the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, "Certainly this was a righteous man."
48 All the multitudes that came together to see this, when they saw the things that were done, returned beating their breasts.
49 All his acquaintances, and the women who followed with him from the Galil, stood far away, watching these things.
50 Behold, a man named Yosef, who was a member of the council, a good and righteous man
51 (he had not consented to their counsel and deed), from Ramatayim, a city of the Yehudim, who was also waiting for the kingdom of God:
52 this man went to Pilate, and asked for Yeshua' body.
53 He took it down, and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was cut in stone, where no man had ever yet lain.
54 It was the day of the Preparation, and the Shabbat was coming on.
55 The women, who had come with him out of the Galil, followed after, and saw the tomb, and how his body was laid.
56 They returned, and prepared spices and ointments. On the Shabbat they rested according to the mitzvah.
