1 aNow when morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people conferred together against Jesus to put Him to death;
4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” But they said, “What is that to us? aSee to that yourself!”
7 And they conferred together and 1with the money bought the Potter’s Field as a burial place for strangers.
8 aFor this reason that field has been called the Field of Blood to this day.
12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, aHe did not answer.
13 Then Pilate * said to Him, “Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?”
17 So when the people gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release for you? Barabbas, or Jesus awho is called Christ?”
20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds to aask for Barabbas and to put Jesus to death.
21 But the governor 1said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?” And they said, “Barabbas.”
23 And he said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they kept shouting all the more, saying, “1Crucify Him!”
24 When Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that aa riot was starting, he took water and bwashed his hands in front of the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of cthis Man’s blood; dsee to that yourselves.”
25 And all the people said, “aHis blood shall be on us and on our children!”
28 They stripped Him and aput a scarlet robe on Him.
30 aThey spat on Him, and took the reed and began to beat Him on the head.
31 aAfter they had mocked Him, they took the scarlet robe off Him and put His own garments back on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.
36 And sitting down, they began to akeep watch over Him there.
38 At that time two robbers * were crucified with Him, one on the right and one on the left.
44 aThe robbers who had been crucified with Him were also insulting Him with the same words.
46 About the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “aEli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
48 aImmediately one of them ran, and taking a sponge, he filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink.
50 And Jesus acried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
53 and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered athe holy city and appeared to many.
54 aNow the centurion, and those who were with him bkeeping guard over Jesus, when they saw cthe earthquake and the things that were happening, became very frightened and said, “Truly this was 1dthe Son of God!”
57 aWhen it was evening, there came a rich man from Arimathea, named Joseph, who himself had also become a disciple of Jesus.
60 and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock; and he rolled aa large stone against the entrance of the tomb and went away.
61 And aMary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the grave.
63 and said, “Sir, we remember that when He was still alive that deceiver said, ‘aAfter three days I am to rise again.’
64 “Therefore, give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day, otherwise His disciples may come and steal Him away and say to the people, ‘He has risen from the dead,’ and the last deception will be worse than the first.”
65 Pilate said to them, “You have a aguard; go, make it as secure as you know how.”
