Mark 15

Jesus brought bound, and accused before Pilate.

Mark 15:1 And anone in the dawnyng, the hye priestes held a councel, with the elders, and the scribes, and the whole congregation, and bound Iesus, and ledde hym away, and deliuered hym to Pilate. Mark 15:2 And Pilate asked hym: Art thou the kyng of the Iewes? And he aunswered and sayde vnto hym: thou sayest it? Mark 15:3 And the hye priestes accused hym of many thynges. Mark 15:4 So Pilate asked hym agayne, saying: Aunswerest thou nothyng? Beholde, howe many thynges they witnesse agaynst thee. Mark 15:5 Iesus yet aunswered nothyng, so that Pilate marueyled. Mark 15:6 At that feast, Pilate dyd delyuer vnto them a prisoner, whomsoeuer they woulde desire. Mark 15:7 And there was one, that was named Barabbas, which lay bounde, with them that made insurrection: Which [men] had committed murther also in the insurrection. Mark 15:8 And the people crying aloude, began to desire [hym] that he woulde do, according as he had euer done vnto them. Mark 15:9 Pilate aunswered them, saying: Wyll ye that I let loose vnto you the kyng of the Iewes? Mark 15:10 For he knewe, that the hye priestes had delyuered hym of enuie. Mark 15:11 But the hye priestes moued the people, that he shoulde rather delyuer Barabbas vnto them. Mark 15:12 Pilate aunswered agayne, and sayde vnto them: What wyll ye then that I do vnto hym, whom ye call the kyng of the Iewes? Mark 15:13 And they cryed agayne, crucifie hym. Mark 15:14 Pilate sayde vnto them: What euyll hath he done? And they cryed the more feruently, crucifie hym.

Upon the clamour of the common people, the murderer Barabbas is loosed, and Jesus delivered up to be crucified.

Mark 15:15 And so Pilate, wyllyng to content the people, let loose Barabbas vnto them, and deliuered vp Iesus, when he had scourged hym, for to be crucified. Mark 15:16 And the souldiers led hym away, into the hall, called Praetorium, and called together the whole bande [of souldiers:]

He is crowned with thorns,

Mark 15:17 And they clothed hym with purple, and they platted a crowne of thornes, and crowned hym withall, Mark 15:18 And began to salute hym: Hayle kyng of the Iewes.

spit on, and mocked:

Mark 15:19 And they smote hym on the head with a reede, & did spit vpon him, and bowed their knees, and worshipped hym. Mark 15:20 And when they had mocked hym, they toke the purple of hym, and put his owne clothes on hym, and led hym out to crucifie hym.

fainteth in bearing his cross:

Mark 15:21 And they compelled one that passed by, called Simon of Cyrene (commyng out of the fielde, the father of Alexander and Rufus) to beare his crosse. Mark 15:22 And they brought hym to a place named Golgotha, which is, if a man interprete it, the place of [dead mens] sculles. Mark 15:23 And they gaue hym to drynke, wyne myngled with myrre: but he receaued it not. Mark 15:24 And when they had crucified hym, they parted his garmentes, castyng lottes vpon them, what euery man shoulde take. Mark 15:25 And it was the thyrde houre, and they crucified hym. Mark 15:26 And the title of his cause was written: THE KYNG OF THE IEWES.

hangeth between two thieves:

Mark 15:27 And they crucifed with hym two thieues: the one on the ryght hande, and the other on his left. Mark 15:28 And the Scripture was fulfylled which sayth: He was counted among the wycked.

suffereth the triumphing reproaches of the Jews:

Mark 15:29 And they that went by, rayled on him, wagging their heades, and saying: A wretche, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three dayes, Mark 15:30 Saue thy selfe, and come downe from the crosse. Mark 15:31 Lykewyse also mocked hym the hye priestes among them selues, with the scribes, and sayde: He saued other men, hym selfe he can not saue. Mark 15:32 Let Christe the kyng of Israel descende nowe from the crosse, that we may see, and beleue. And they that were crucified with hym, checked hym also. Mark 15:33 And when the sixth houre was come, darknesse arose ouer all the earth, vntill the nynth houre. Mark 15:34 And at the nynth houre, Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, saying: Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, yf one interprete it, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15:35 And some of them that stoode by, whe they hearde that, sayde: Beholde, he calleth for Elias. Mark 15:36 And one ran, and fylled a spunge full of vineger, and put it on a reede, & gaue hym to drynke, saying: let hym alone, let vs see whether Elias wyll come and take hym downe. Mark 15:37 But Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, and gaue vp the ghost. Mark 15:38 And the vayle of the temple dyd rent in two peeces, from the toppe to the bottome.

but confessed by the centurion to be the Son of God:

Mark 15:39 And when the Centurion, which stoode before hym, sawe, that he so cryed, and gaue vp the ghost, he sayde: Truely this man was the sonne of God. Mark 15:40 There were also women a good way of, beholdyng hym: among whom was Marie Magdalene, and Marie the mother of Iames the litle, and of Ioses, and Salome. Mark 15:41 Which also when he was in Galilee, had folowed hym, and ministred vnto hym: and many other women, which came vp with hym vnto Hierusalem.

Mark 15:43 Ioseph [of the citie] of Aramathia, a noble councellour, which also loked for the kyngdome of God, came, and went in boldely vnto Pilate, and begged of hym the body of Iesu. Mark 15:44 And Pilate marueyled that he was alredy dead: and called vnto hym the Centurion, and asked of hym, whether he had ben any whyle dead. Mark 15:45 And when he knewe the trueth of the Centurion, he gaue the body to Ioseph. Mark 15:46 And he bought a lynnen cloth, & toke hym downe, and wrapped hym in the lynnen cloth, & layde him in a sepulchre, that was hewe out of the rocke, & roulled a stone vnto the doore of ye sepulchre. Mark 15:47 And Marie Magdalene, and Marie Ioses, behelde where he was layde.
