Christ is delivered bound to Pilate.
Matthew 27:1 And when it was morning all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Jesus so that they might put him to death. Matthew 27:2 And having bound him they led him away, and delivered him up to Pontius Pilate, the governor.
Judas hangeth himself.
Matthew 27:3 Then Judas, who delivered him up, seeing that he had been condemned, filled with remorse, returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, Matthew 27:4 saying, I have sinned [in] having delivered up guiltless blood. But they said, What is that to us? see *thou* [to that]. Matthew 27:5 And having cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, he left the place, and went away and hanged himself. Matthew 27:6 And the chief priests took the pieces of silver and said, It is not lawful to cast them into the Corban, since it is [the] price of blood. Matthew 27:7 And having taken counsel, they bought with them the field of the potter for a burying-ground for strangers. Matthew 27:8 Wherefore that field has been called Blood-field unto this day. Matthew 27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken through Jeremias the prophet, saying, And I took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was set a price on, whom [they who were] of the sons of Israel had set a price on, Matthew 27:10 and they gave them for the field of the potter, according as [the] Lord commanded me. Matthew 27:11 But Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor questioned him, saying, Art *thou* the King of the Jews? And Jesus said to him, Thou sayest. Matthew 27:12 And when he was accused of the chief priests and the elders, he answered nothing. Matthew 27:13 Then says Pilate to him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee? Matthew 27:14 And he answered him not so much as one word, so that the governor wondered exceedingly. Matthew 27:15 Now at [the] feast the governor was accustomed to release one prisoner to the crowd, whom they would. Matthew 27:16 And they had then a notable prisoner, named Barabbas. Matthew 27:17 They therefore being gathered together, Pilate said to them, Whom will ye that I release to you, Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ? Matthew 27:18 For he knew that they had delivered him up through envy.
Pilate, admonished of his wife,
Matthew 27:19 But, as he was sitting on the judgment-seat, his wife sent to him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that righteous [man]; for I have suffered to-day many things in a dream because of him. Matthew 27:20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowds that they should beg for Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. Matthew 27:21 And the governor answering said to them, Which of the two will ye that I release unto you? And they said, Barabbas. Matthew 27:22 Pilate says to them, What then shall I do with Jesus, who is called Christ? They all say, Let him be crucified. Matthew 27:23 And the governor said, What evil then has he done? But they cried more than ever, saying, Let him be crucified.
washeth his hands:
Matthew 27:24 And Pilate, seeing that it availed nothing, but that rather a tumult was arising, having taken water, washed his hands before the crowd, saying, I am guiltless of the blood of this righteous one: see *ye* [to it]. Matthew 27:25 And all the people answering said, His blood [be] on us and on our children.
and looseth Barabbas.
Matthew 27:26 Then he released to them Barabbas; but Jesus, having scourged [him], he delivered up that he might be crucified. Matthew 27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor, having taken Jesus with [them] to the praetorium, gathered against him the whole band, Matthew 27:28 and having taken off his garment, put on him a scarlet cloak;
Christ is crowned with thorns,
Matthew 27:29 and having woven a crown out of thorns, they put it on his head, and a reed in his right hand; and, bowing the knee before him, they mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews! Matthew 27:30 And having spit upon him, they took the reed and beat [him] on his head. Matthew 27:31 And when they had mocked him, they took the cloak off him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him away to crucify. Matthew 27:32 And as they went forth they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name; him they compelled to go [with them] that he might bear his cross. Matthew 27:33 And having come to a place called Golgotha, which means Place of a skull,
Matthew 27:34 they gave to him to drink vinegar mingled with gall; and having tasted [it], he would not drink. Matthew 27:35 And having crucified him, they parted his clothes amongst [themselves], casting lots. Matthew 27:36 And sitting down, they kept guard over him there. Matthew 27:37 And they set up over his head his accusation written: This is Jesus, the King of the Jews. Matthew 27:38 Then are crucified with him two robbers, one on the right hand and one on the left.
Matthew 27:39 But the passers-by reviled him, shaking their heads
Matthew 27:40 and saying, Thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou art Son of God, descend from the cross. Matthew 27:41 [And] in like manner the chief priests also, mocking, with the scribes and elders, said, Matthew 27:42 He saved others, himself he cannot save. He is King of Israel: let him descend now from the cross, and we will believe on him. Matthew 27:43 He trusted upon God; let him save him now if he will [have] him. For he said, I am Son of God. Matthew 27:44 And the robbers also who had been crucified with him cast the same reproaches on him. Matthew 27:45 Now from [the] sixth hour there was darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour; Matthew 27:46 but about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Matthew 27:47 And some of those who stood there, when they heard [it], said, This [man] calls for Elias. Matthew 27:48 And immediately one of them running and getting a sponge, having filled [it] with vinegar and fixed [it] on a reed, gave him to drink. Matthew 27:49 But the rest said, Let be; let us see if Elias comes to save him.
dieth, and is buried:
Matthew 27:50 And Jesus, having again cried with a loud voice, gave up the ghost. Matthew 27:51 And lo, the veil of the temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom, and the earth was shaken, and the rocks were rent, Matthew 27:52 and the tombs were opened; and many bodies of the saints fallen asleep arose, Matthew 27:53 and going out of the tombs after his arising, entered into the holy city and appeared unto many. Matthew 27:54 But the centurion, and they who were with him on guard over Jesus, seeing the earthquake and the things that took place, feared greatly, saying, Truly this [man] was Son of God. Matthew 27:55 And there were there many women beholding from afar off, who had followed Jesus from Galilee ministering to him, Matthew 27:56 among whom was Mary of Magdala, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee. Matthew 27:57 Now when even was come there came a rich man of Arimathaea, his name Joseph, who also himself was a disciple to Jesus. Matthew 27:58 *He*, going to Pilate, begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be given up. Matthew 27:59 And Joseph having got the body, wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, Matthew 27:60 and laid it in his new tomb which he had hewn in the rock; and having rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, went away. Matthew 27:61 But Mary of Magdala was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the sepulchre.
Matthew 27:62 Now on the morrow, which is after the preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees came together to Pilate, Matthew 27:63 saying, Sir, we have called to mind that that deceiver said when he was still alive, After three days I arise. Matthew 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be secured until the third day, lest his disciples should come and steal him away, and say to the people, He is risen from the dead; and the last error shall be worse than the first. Matthew 27:65 And Pilate said to them, Ye have a watch: go, secure it as well as ye know how.
his sepulchre is sealed, and watched.
Matthew 27:66 And they went and secured the sepulchre, having sealed the stone, with the watch [besides].
