46 kissed him. And they laid their hands on him, and apo 47 prehended him. And one of those who stood by drew a

sword, and struck a servant of the high-priest, and cut off 48 his ear. Then Jesus spake and said unto them, “ Are ye

come out as against a robber, with swords and clubs, to 49 take me? I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and ye

did not lay hold on me: but the scriptures are thus 50 fulfilled.” And they all left him, and fled. Now a cer51 tain young man followed him, having a linen cloth cast

about his naked body; and (the young men] lay hold on 52 him. And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them

naked. 53 And they led Jesus away to the high-priest; and all

the chief-priests, and the elders, and the scribes, come 54 together at his house. And Peter followed him at a di

stance, even into the palace of the high-priest: and was

sitting together with the officers, and warming himself, 55 at the fire. And the chief-priests, and the whole coun

cil, sought witness against Jesus to put him to death ; and 56 found it not. For many bare false witness against him, 57 but their testimonies were not sufficient. And some rose 58 up, and bare false witness against him, saying, We

heard him say, I will destroy this temple which is made

by hands, and within three days I will build another not 59 made by hands.” But neither so was their testimony suf60 ficient. Then the high-priest rose up in the midst, and

asked Jesus, saying, “ Answerest thou nothing? what is 61 it which these witness against thee ?”. But he kept si

lence, and answered nothing. Again the high-priest

asked him, and saith unto him, « Art thou the Christ, 62 the son of the Blessed God ?" And Jesus said, “I am : and

ye will see the Son of man sitting on the right hand 63 of power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.” Then

the high-priest rent his vests, and saith, “ What further 64 need have we of witnesses ? Ye have heard the blasphemy:

what appeareth to you?” And they all condemned him

65 to be guilty of death. And some began to spit on him,

and to cover his face, and to strike biin with the fist, and to say unto him, “ Prophesy:" and the officers beat him

with the palms of their hands. 66 And as Peter was in the palace beneath; one of the 67 maid-servants of the high-priest cometh. And when she

saw Peter warming himself, she looked on him, and saith, 68 « And thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.” But he

denied it, saying, “I know not, nor understand what

thou sayest.” And he went out into the porch; and the 69 cock crew. And the same* maid-servant saw him again,

and began to say to those who stood by, “This is one of 70 them." And he denied it again. And after a little time,

those who stood by said again to Peter, “Surely thou art

one of them: for thou art a Galilean, [and thy speech 71 beareth a resemblance."] But he began to curse himself,

and to swear, saying, “ I know not this man of whom ye 72 speak.” And a second time the cock crew. And Peter

called t to mind the words which Jesus said unto him, “ Before the cock crow twice, thou wilt deny me thrice."

And, when he thought thereon, he wept. Ch. xv. And immediately in the morning the chief-priests

and the elders, and scribes, and the whole council, held

a consultation, and bound Jesus, and took him away, and 2 delivered him up to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, “Art

thou the king of the Jews ?” And he answered and said 3 unto him, “Thou sayest truly.And the chief-priests acA cused him of many things. Then Pilate asked him again,

saying, “ Answerest thou nothing ? see how many things 5 they witness against thee.” But Jesus no longer answera

ed any thing: so that Pilate wondered. 6 Now at that feast he was wont to release unto them 7 one prisoner, whomsoever they asked for. And there

was a man named Barabbas, who lay bound with those

that had made insurrection with him, men who had com. 8 mitted murder in the insurrection. And the multitude

cried aloud, and began to ask that he would do as he had 9 always done unto them. Then Pilate answered them, saying, “ Will


that I release unto you the King of the 10 Jews ?” (For he knew that through envy the chief11 priests had delivered him up.) But the chief-priests

stirred up the people to ask that he would rather release 12 Barabbas unto them. And Pilate spake, and said again

unto them, “ What will ye then that I should do unto 13 him whom ye call the King of the Jews?” And they 14 cried out again, “ Crucify him.” Then Pilate said unto

them, “ But what eyil hath he done?” And they cried 15 out exceedingly, “ Crucify him.” So Pilate, willing to

content the people, released Barabbas unto them; and, when he bad scourged Jesus, he delivered him up to be

crucified, 16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, which is

named Pretorium; and they call together the whole band 17 of soldiers : and they clothe him with purple, and plat 18 a crown of thorns, and put it about his head : and they 19 began to salute him, “ Hail, King of the Jews.” And

they struck him on the head with a reed, and spat on 20 him, and, bowing their knees, did him obeisance. And

when they had derided him, they stripped him of the purple, and put his own clothes on him; and lead him out

to crucify him. 21 And one Simon, a Cyrenian, (the father of Alexander

and Rufus,) who passed by, coming from the country, 22 they compel to bear his cross. And they bring him to a

place called Golgotha, which is, being interpreted, A 23 place of skulls. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received it not.

And when they had crucified him, they part among them his garments, casting lots for them, what every man 25 should take. And it was the third hour, when they cru

26 cified him. And the inscription of his accusation was 27 written over; THE KING OF THE Jews. And with him

they crucify two robbers ; one on his right hand, and 28 another on his left. [And the scripture was fulfilled,

which saith, “ And he was numbered among the trans29 gressors."] And those who passed by reviled him, shak

ing their heads, and saying, « Ah, thou that destroyest 30 the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself, 31 and come down from the cross." In like manner the

chief-priests and the scribes also derided him among

themselves, and said, • He saved others; himself he can32 not save. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down

now from the cross, that we may see and believe.” And 33 those who were crucified with him reproached him. And

when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over 34 the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth

hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, “ Eloi, Eloi,

lama sabachthani ?” which is, being interpreted, My 35 God, my God, wherefore hast thou forsaken me? And

some of those who stood by, when they heard it, said, 36 “ Behold, he calleth for Elijah.” And one ran, and

filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it about a reed,

and gave him to drink, saying, “ Forbear ye ; let us see 37 whether Elijah will come to take him down." Then Je

sus sent forth a loud cry, and expired. 98 And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the 39 top to the bottom. And when the centurion, who stood

by over against him, saw that he thus cried out, and ex

pired, he said, “ Truly this man was the son of a god*." 40 And there were women also beholding at a distance ;

among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mo

ther of James the younger and of Joses, and Salomé; A1 (now these, when he was in Galilee, followed him also,

and ministered unto him;) and many other women, who came up with him to Jerusalem.

42 And when evening was now come, because it was the

day of preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath, 43 Joseph of Arimathea, a senator of rank, and who also

himself looked for the kingdom of God, came, and cou

rageously went in to Pilate, and asked for the body of 44 Jesus. And Pilate wondered that he was already dead :

and he called to him the centurion, and asked him whe45 ther Jesus had been any while dead. And whe he knew 46 it from the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph : who

bought linen, and took him down, and wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulchre which had been

hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone to the door of the 47 sepulchre. And Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mo

ther of Joses, beheld where he was laid. CH. XVI. And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene,

and Mary the mother of James, and Salomé, bought sweet spices, that they might go and anoiut him.

And very early in the morning of the first day of the week, they come to the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. 8 And they said among themselves, “ Who shall roll away 4 the stone for us from the door of the sepulchre ?” (But

when they looked, they see that the stone was rolled 5 away:) for it was very great. And they entered into the

sepulchre, and saw a young man sitting on the right

side, clothed in a white robe; and they were astonished. 6 And he saith unto them, “ Be not astonished: ye seek

Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified : he is risen; he is 7 not here; see the place where they laid him. But depart, tell his disciples, and Peter, that he will

And they went out, and fled from the sepulchre ; and trembling and amazement seized them; nor said they

any thing to any one ; for they were afraid. 9 * Now Jesus rose early on the first day of the week;
