Christ is delivered bound to Pilate.
Matthew 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chiefe Priests and Elders of the people, tooke counsell against Iesus to put him to death. Matthew 27:2 And when they had bound him, they led him away, and deliuered him to Pontius Pilate the gouernour.
Judas hangeth himself.
Matthew 27:3 Then Iudas, which had betraied him, when he saw that hee was condemned, repented himselfe, and brought againe the thirtie pieces of siluer to the chiefe Priests and Elders, Matthew 27:4 Saying, I haue sinned, in that I haue betraied the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to vs? see thou to that. Matthew 27:5 And hee cast downe the pieces of siluer in the Temple, and departed, and went and hanged himselfe. Matthew 27:6 And the chiefe Priests tooke the siluer pieces, and said, It is not lawfull for to put them into the treasurie, because it is the price of blood. Matthew 27:7 And they tooke counsell, and bought with them the potters field, to burie strangers in. Matthew 27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood vnto this day. Matthew 27:9 (Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Ieremie the Prophet, saying, And they tooke the thirtie pieces of siluer, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value: Matthew 27:10 And gaue them for the potters field, as the Lord appointed me.) Matthew 27:11 And Iesus stood before the gouernour, and the gouernour asked him, saying; Art thou the King of the Iewes? And Iesus sayd vnto him, Thou sayest. Matthew 27:12 And when hee was accused of the chiefe Priests and Elders, he answered nothing. Matthew 27:13 Then saith Pilate vnto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witnesse against thee? Matthew 27:14 And he answered him to neuer a word: insomuch that the Gouernour marueiled greatly. Matthew 27:15 Now at [that] feast the Gouernor was woont to release vnto the people a prisoner, whom they would. Matthew 27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Matthew 27:17 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said vnto them, Whom will ye that I release vnto you? Barabbas, or Iesus, which is called Christ? Matthew 27:18 For hee knew that for enuie they had deliuered him.
Pilate, admonished of his wife,
Matthew 27:19 When he was set downe on the Iudgement seate, his wife sent vnto him, saying, Haue thou nothing to doe with that iust man: for I haue suffered many things this day in a dreame, because of him. Matthew 27:20 But the chiefe Priestes and Elders perswaded the multitude that they should aske Barabbas, & destroy Iesus. Matthew 27:21 The Gouernour answered, and said vnto them, Whether of the twaine will ye that I release vnto you? They said, Barabbas. Matthew 27:22 Pilate said vnto them, What shall I doe then with Iesus, which is called Christ? They all sayde vnto him, Let him be crucified. Matthew 27:23 And the Gouernour said, Why, what euil hath he done? But they cried out ye more, saying, Let him be crucified.
washeth his hands:
Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could preuaile nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, hee tooke water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this iust person: see yee to it. Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood [be] on vs, and on our children.
and looseth Barabbas.
Matthew 27:26 Then released hee Barabbas vnto them, and when he had scourged Iesus, he deliuered him to be crucified. Matthew 27:27 Then the souldiers of the Gouernour tooke Iesus into the common hall, and gathered vnto him the whole band [of souldiers]. Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.
Christ is crowned with thorns,
Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crowne of thornes, they put it vpon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Haile king of the Iewes. Matthew 27:30 And they spit vpon him, and tooke the reed, and smote him on the head. Matthew 27:31 And after that they had mocked him, they tooke the robe off from him, and put his owne raiment on him, and led him away to crucifie him. Matthew 27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to beare his Crosse. Matthew 27:33 And when they were come vnto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
Matthew 27:34 They gaue him vineger to drinke, mingled with gall: and when hee had tasted thereof, hee would not drinke. Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, They parted my garments among them, and vpon my vesture did they cast lots. Matthew 27:36 And sitting downe, they watched him there: Matthew 27:37 And set vp ouer his head, his accusation written, THIS IS IESVS THE KING OF THE IEWES. Matthew 27:38 Then were there two theeues crucified with him: one on the right hand, and another on the left.
Matthew 27:39 And they that passed by, reuiled him, wagging their heads,
Matthew 27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the Temple, & buildest it in three dayes, saue thy selfe: If thou be the Sonne of God, come downe from the Crosse. Matthew 27:41 Likewise also the chiefe Priests mocking him, with the Scribes and Elders, said, Matthew 27:42 He saued others, himselfe he cannot saue: If he be the King of Israel, let him now come downe from the Crosse, and we will beleeue him. Matthew 27:43 He trusted in God, let him deliuer him now if hee will haue him: for he said, I am the Sonne of God. Matthew 27:44 The thieues also which were crucified with him, cast ye same in his teeth. Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth houre there was darkenesse ouer all the land vnto the ninth houre. Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth houre, Iesus cried with a loud voyce, saying, Eli, Eli, Lamasabachthani, that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken mee? Matthew 27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias. Matthew 27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and tooke a spunge, and filled it with vineger, and put it on a reede, and gaue him to drinke. Matthew 27:49 The rest said, Let bee, let vs see whether Elias will come to saue him.
dieth, and is buried:
Matthew 27:50 Iesus, when hee had cried againe with a loud voice, yeelded vp the ghost. Matthew 27:51 And behold, the vaile of the Temple was rent in twaine, from the top to the bottome, and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent. Matthew 27:52 And the graues were opened, and many bodies of Saints which slept, arose, Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graues after his resurrection, and went into the holy citie, and appeared vnto many. Matthew 27:54 Now when the Centurion, and they that were with him, watching Iesus, saw the earthquake, & those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truely this was the Son of God. Matthew 27:55 And many women were there (beholding afarre off) which followed Iesus from Galilee, ministring vnto him. Matthew 27:56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, & Mary the mother of Iames and Ioses, and the mother of Zebedees children. Matthew 27:57 When the Euen was come, there came a rich man of Arimathea, named Ioseph, who also himselfe was Iesus disciple: Matthew 27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Iesus: then Pilate commanded the body to be deliuered. Matthew 27:59 And when Ioseph had taken the body, hee wrapped it in a cleane linnen cloth, Matthew 27:60 And laide it in his owne newe tombe, which he had hewen out in the rocke: and he rolled a great stone to the doore of the sepulchre, and departed. Matthew 27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting ouer against the sepulchre.
Matthew 27:62 Now the next day that followed the day of the preparation, the chiefe Priests and Pharisees came together vnto Pilate, Matthew 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiuer said, while he was yet aliue, After three daies I wil rise againe. Matthew 27:64 Command therfore that the sepulchre be made sure, vntill the third day, lest his disciples come by night, & steale him away, and say vnto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last errour shalbe worse then the first. Matthew 27:65 Pilate said vnto them, Yee haue a watch, goe your way, make it as sure as you can.
his sepulchre is sealed, and watched.
Matthew 27:66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and setting a watch.
