187 art one of them: for thou art a Galilæan, and thy speech agreeth thereto. 'One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? Peter then denied again : "he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know not this man of whom ye speak. And immediately, the second time, while he yet spake, the cock crew. And the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord,* how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he 'went out, and wept bitterly. 1 Jno. xviii. 26, 7. Mk. xiv. 71. 3 Lu. xxii. 60. - Mk. xiv. 72. 5 Lu. xxii, 60, 1. (* Jesus,' Mat. and Mark.)

And as soon as it was day, the elders of the 66 Council chamber. people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council, saying, Art 67 thou the Christ ? tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: and if I also ask you, ye will 68 not answer me, nor let me go. Hereafter shall the Son of 69 man sit on the right hand of the power of God. Then said 70 they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say

And they said, What need we 71 any further witness ? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.

And straightway when the morning was come, Mark xv. 1. all the chief priests 3 held a consultation with the John xvii. 28. elders * of the people, and scribes, and the whole Judgment hall. council, 6 against Jesus, to put him to death. And when they had bound him, "the whole multitude of them arose, and led him away from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment, 10 and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor : " and it was early.

have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is 5 that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces

of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged 6 himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and

said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, 7 because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel,

and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers 8 in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, 9 unto this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken

by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty

pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they 10 of the children of Israel did value; and gave them for the

potter's field, as the Lord appointed me.

JESUS PRESENTED TO THE PEOPLE.

189 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation 35 and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done? Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of 36 this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. Pilate 37 therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then ? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth

my

voice. Pilate saith unto him, What 38 is truth? No. 266. * And when he had said this, he went out

again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all. But

39 custom, that I should release unto you one at the passover: will

ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews ? Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, 40 but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.

+ Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and I scourged him.

And the soldiers platted a 2 crown of thorns, and put it on his head ; and they put on him a purple robe, and said, Hail, King of the Jews! and 3 they smote him with their hands. No.268.

Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith 4

unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came 5 Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man ! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they 6 cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. The Jews answered him, We have a law, and 7 * Pilate came out a second time alone, and proposed to release Jesus.

His proposal being refused, he returned into the judgment-ball; and, hoping to satisfy the Jews, he scourged Jesus, and arrayed him in purple.

# Pilate came out a third time, and alone, stating he would bring forth Jesus, decorated in a manner that would convince them that there was nothing dangerous in Jesus' affected royalty. Jesus came forth the first time, and Pilate sought a second time to

PILATE SEEKS TO RELEASE JESUS. by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the 8 Son of God. When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he

was the more afraid ; 9 *And went again into the judgment hall, and

saith unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus 10 gave him no answer. Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest

thou not unto me ? knowest thou not that I have power to 11 crucify thee, and have power to release thee ? Jesus

answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that

delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12 + And from thenceforth Pilate sought to

release him: but the Jews cried out, saying,
If thou let this man go, thou art not Cæsar's friend: who-

soever maketh himself a king, speaketh against Cæsar. 13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, Ino. six. 13, 14.
