Mark 15

Jesus brought bound, and accused before Pilate.

Mark 15:1 And soone in the mornynge the hye prestes helde a councell wt the elders and scrybes and the whole councell, & bounde Iesus, and led him awaye, and delyuered him vnto Pylate. Mark 15:2 And Pylate axed him: Art thou the kynge of the Iewes? He answered, and sayde vnto him: Thou sayest it. Mark 15:3 And the hye prestes accused him sore. Mark 15:4 But Pylate axed him agayne, and sayde: Answerest thou nothinge? Beholde, how sore they laye to yi charge. Mark 15:5 Neuertheles Iesus answered nomore, in so moch yt Pylate marueyled. Mark 15:6 At that feast of Easter he was wonte to delyuer vnto them a presoner, whom so euer they wolde desyre. Mark 15:7 There was i preson with the sedicious, one called Barrabas, which in the vproure had committed murthur. Mark 15:8 And the people wente vp, and prayed him, that he wolde do, as he was wonte. Mark 15:9 Pylate answered them: wyl ye that I geue lowse vnto you the kynge of the Iewes? Mark 15:10 For he knew, that ye hye prestes had delyuered him of envye. Mark 15:11 But the hye prestes moued ye people, that he shulde rather geue Barrabas lowse vnto them. Mark 15:12 Pylate answered agayne, and sayde vnto them: What wil ye the that I do vnto him, whom ye accuse to be kynge of the Iewes? Mark 15:13 They cried agayne: Crucifie hi. Mark 15:14 Pylate sayde vnto the: What euell hath he done? But they cried yet moch more: Crucifie him.

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

Mark 15:15 So Pylate thought to satisfie the people, and gaue Barrabas lowse vnto them, and delyuered the Iesus, to be scourgd & crucified. Mark 15:16 And the soudyers led him in to the como hall, and called the whole multitude together,

He is crowned with thorns,

Mark 15:17 and clothed him with purple, and plated a crowne of thorne, and crowned him withall, Mark 15:18 and beganne to salute him: Hayle kynge of the Iewes.

spit on, and mocked:

Mark 15:19 And smote him vpon the heade with a rede, and spytted vpo him, and fell vpo the kne, & worshipped him. Mark 15:20 And wha they had mocked him, they toke ye purple of him, and put his clothes vpon him, & led him out, that they might crucifye him.

fainteth in bearing his cross:

Mark 15:21 And they compelled one that passed by, called Symon of Cyren (which came from the felde, and was the father of Alexander and Ruffus) to beare his crosse. Mark 15:22 And they brought him to the place Golgatha, which is by interpretacion: a place of deed mens skulles. Mark 15:23 And they gaue him wyne myxted wt myrre, to drynke, & he toke it not. Mark 15:24 And whan they had crucified him, they parted his garmetes, & cast lottes therfore, what euery one shulde take. Mark 15:25 And it was aboute ye thirde houre, & they crucified him. Mark 15:26 And the tytle of his cause was wrytte ouer aboue him (namely:) The kynge of the Iewes.

hangeth between two thieves:

Mark 15:27 And they crucified him wt two murtherers, one at ye right hande, and one at the left. Mark 15:28 Then was the scrypture fulfilled, which sayeth: He was couted amonge the euell doers.

suffereth the triumphing reproaches of the Jews:

Mark 15:29 And they that wete by, reuyled him, and wagged their heades, and sayde: Fye vpon the, how goodly breakest thou downe ye teple, & buyldest it agayne in thre dayes? Mark 15:30 Helpe yi self now, & come downe fro the crosse. Mark 15:31 The hye prestes also in like maner laughed him to scorne amonge the selues, with the scrybes, & sayde: He hath helped other, himself can he not helpe. Mark 15:32 Yf he be Christ and ye kynge of Israel, let him come downe now fro the crosse, yt we maye se it, & beleue. And they yt were crucified wt hi, checked hi also. Mark 15:33 And wha it was aboute the sixte houre, there was a darcknesse ouer the whole lode, tyll aboute ye nyenth houre. Mark 15:34 And aboute ye nyenth houre Iesus cried loude, and sayde: Eli, Eli, lamma asabthani? which is interpreted: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15:35 And some that stode by, whan they herde yt, they sayde: Beholde, he calleth Elias. Mark 15:36 Then rane there one, & fylled a spoge wt vyneger, & stickte it vpo a rede, & gaue hi to drynke, & sayde: Holde styll, let se, whether Elias wil come, and take him downe. Mark 15:37 But Iesus cried loude, and gaue vp the goost. Mark 15:38 And the vale of the teple rent in two peces, from aboue tyll beneth.

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

Mark 15:39 The captayne that stode thereby ouer agaynst him, wha he sawe yt he gaue vp the goost with soch a crye, he sayde: Verely this man was Gods sonne. Mark 15:40 And there were wemen there also, which behelde this afarre of, amoge who was Mary Magdalene, & Mary of Iames ye litle, & the mother of Ioses, & Salome, Mark 15:41 which had folowed him wha he was in Galile, and mynistred vnto hi: & many other yt wete vp wt hi to Ierusalem.

Mark 15:42 And at euen (for so moch as it was the daye of preparinge, which is the fore Sabbath)

and is honourably buried by Joseph.

Mark 15:43 there came one Ioseph of Arimathia, a worshipfull Senatoure (which loked also for the kyngdome of God) & wete in boldely vnto Pilate, & axed ye body of Iesus. Mark 15:44 But Pylate marueyled yt he was deed all ready, & called ye captayne, & axed hi, whether he had loge bene deed. Mark 15:45 And wha he had gotten knowlege of the captayne, he gaue Ioseph ye body. Mark 15:46 And he bought a lynne cloth, & toke him downe, & wrapped hi in ye lynne clothe, & layed him in a sepulcre, which was hewe out of a rocke, & rolled a stone before ye dore of ye sepulcre. Mark 15:47 But Mary Magdalene and Mary Ioses behelde, where he was layed.
