Then Judas, who betrayed him,
when he saw that Jesus was condemned,
"I have sinned in that I betrayed innocent blood."But they said,
"What is that to us? You see to it."
He threw down the pieces of silver in the sanctuary, and departed.
The chief priests took the pieces of silver, and said,
"It’s not lawful to put them into the treasury, since it is the price of blood."They took counsel, and bought the potter’s field with them, to bury strangers in.
Therefore that field was called “The Field of Blood” to this day.
“They took the thirty pieces of silver,
“What accusation do you bring against this man?”They answered him,
“If this man weren’t an evildoer,Pilate therefore said to them,
“Take him yourselves, and judge him according to your law.”Therefore the Jews said to him,
“It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,”that the word of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke,
signifying by what kind of death he should die.
“Are you the King of the Jews?”
“Do you say this by yourself,Pilate answered,
“I’m not a Jew, am I?Jesus answered,
“My Kingdom is not of this world.Pilate therefore said to him,
“Are you a king then?”Jesus answered,
“You say that I am a king. For this reason I have been born,Pilate said to him,
“What is truth?”When he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them,
“I find no basis for a charge against him."
“Are you the King of the Jews?”Jesus said to him,
“So you say.”When he was accused by the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
“Don’t you hear how many things they testify against you?”He gave him no answer, not even one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.
“Are you the King of the Jews?”He answered,
“So you say.”The chief priests accused him of many things.
“Have you no answer? See how many things they testify against you!”
They began to accuse him, saying,
"We found this man perverting the nation,Pilate asked him,
"Are you the King of the Jews? "He answered him,
"So you say."Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes,
"I find no basis for a charge against this man."But they insisted, saying,
"He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea,
But when Pilate heard Galilee mentioned, he asked if the man was a Galilean.
When he found out that he was in Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem during those days.
Now when Herod saw Jesus, 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.
He questioned him with many words, but he gave no answers.
The chief priests and the scribes stood, vehemently accusing him.
Herod with his soldiers humiliated him and mocked him.
Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before that they were enemies with each other.
Pilate called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 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.
“Whom do you want me to release to you?For he knew that because of envy they had delivered him up.
“Have nothing to do with that righteous man,
Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the multitudes to ask for Barabbas,
“Which of the two do you want me to release to you?”They said,
“Barabbas!”Pilate said to them,
“What then shall I do to Jesus, who is called Christ?”They all said to him,
“Let him be crucified!”But the governor said,
“Why? What evil has he done?”But they cried out exceedingly, saying,
“Let him be crucified!”So when Pilate saw that nothing was being gained,
but rather that a disturbance was starting,
he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying,
“I am innocent of the blood of this righteous person.All the people answered,
“May his blood be on us, and on our children!”Then he released to them Barabbas,
but Jesus he flogged and delivered to be crucified.
Now at the feast he used to release to them one prisoner, whom they asked of him.
There was one called Barabbas, bound with those who had made insurrection,
The multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do as he always did for them.
Pilate answered them, saying,
"Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"For he perceived that for envy the chief priests had delivered him up.
But the chief priests stirred up the multitude, that he should release Barabbas to them instead.
Pilate again asked them,
"What then should I do to him whom you call the King of the Jews?"They cried out again,
"Crucify him!"Pilate said to them,
"Why, what evil has he done?"But they cried out exceedingly,
"Crucify him!"Pilate, wishing to please the multitude, released Barabbas to them, and handed over Jesus, when he had flogged him, to be crucified.
Now he had to release one prisoner to them at the feast. But they all cried out together, saying,
"Away with this man! Release to us Barabbas!" —one who was thrown into prison for a certain revolt in the city, and for murder.
Then Pilate spoke to them again, wanting to release Jesus, but they shouted, saying,
"Crucify! Crucify him!"He said to them the third time,
"Why? What evil has this man done?But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he might be crucified.
Their voices and the voices of the chief priests prevailed.
Pilate decreed that what they asked for should be done.
He released him who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Jesus up to their will.
"But you have a custom, that I should release someone to you at the Passover.Then they all shouted again, saying,
"Not this man, but Barabbas!"Now Barabbas was a robber.
So Pilate then took Jesus, and flogged him.
The soldiers twisted thorns into a crown, and put it on his head, and dressed him in a purple garment.
They kept saying,
"Hail, King of the Jews!"and they kept slapping him.
Then Pilate went out again, and said to them,
"Behold, I bring him out to you,Jesus therefore came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple garment.
Pilate said to them,
“Behold, the man!"When therefore the chief priests and the officers saw him, they shouted, saying,
“Take him yourselves, and crucify him,The Jews answered him,
"We have a law,When therefore Pilate heard this saying, he was more afraid.
He entered into the Praetorium again, and said to Jesus,
"Where are you from?"But Jesus gave him no answer.
Pilate therefore said to him,
"Aren’t you speaking to me?Jesus answered,
"You would have no power at all against me,At this, Pilate was seeking to release him,
but the Jews cried out, saying,
"If you release this man, you aren’t Caesar’s friend!When Pilate therefore heard these words,
he brought Jesus out, and sat down on the judgment seat
at a place called “The Pavement,” but in Hebrew, “Gabbatha.”
Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, at about the sixth hour.
He said to the Jews,
"Behold, your King!"They cried out,
“Away with him! Away with him!Pilate said to them,
"Shall I crucify your King?"The chief priests answered,
"We have no king but Caesar!"So then he delivered him to them to be crucified.
So they took Jesus and led him away.
