Jesus brought bound, and accused before Pilate.
Mark 15:1 And straightway in the morning, the chief priests holding a consultation with the ancients and the scribes and the whole council, binding Jesus, led him away and delivered him to Pilate. Mark 15:2 And Pilate asked him: Art thou the king of the Jews? But he answering, saith to him: Thou sayest it. Mark 15:3 And the chief priests accused him in many things. Mark 15:4 And Pilate again asked him, saying: Answerest thou nothing? Behold in how many things they accuse thee. Mark 15:5 But Jesus still answered nothing: so that Pilate wondered. Mark 15:6 Now on the festival day he was wont to release unto them one of the prisoners, whomsoever they demanded. Mark 15:7 And there was one called Barabbas, who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the sedition had committed murder. Mark 15:8 And when the multitude was come up, they began to desire that he would do as he had ever done unto them. Mark 15:9 And Pilate answered them and said: Will you that I release to you the king of the Jews? Mark 15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up out of envy. Mark 15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them. Mark 15:12 And Pilate again answering, saith to them: What will you then that I do to the king of the Jews? Mark 15:13 But they again cried out: Crucify him. Mark 15:14 And Pilate saith to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more: Crucify him.
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 being willing to satisfy the people, released to them Barabbas: and delivered up Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified. Mark 15:16 And the soldiers led him away into the court of the palace: and they called together the whole band.
He is crowned with thorns,
Mark 15:17 And they clothed him with purple: and, platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon him. Mark 15:18 And they began to salute him: Hail, king of the Jews.
spit on, and mocked:
Mark 15:19 And they struck his head with a reed: and they did spit on him. And bowing their knees, they adored him. Mark 15:20 And after they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him and put his own garments on him: and they led him out to crucify him.
fainteth in bearing his cross:
Mark 15:21 And they forced one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to take up his cross. Mark 15:22 And they bring him into the place called Golgotha, which being interpreted is, The place of Calvary. Mark 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh. But he took it not. Mark 15:24 And crucifying him, they divided his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take. Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour: and they crucified him. Mark 15:26 And the inscription of his cause was written over: THE KING OF THE JEWS.
hangeth between two thieves:
Mark 15:27 And with him they crucify two thieves: the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. Mark 15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith: And with the wicked he was reputed.
suffereth the triumphing reproaches of the Jews:
Mark 15:29 And they that passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads and saying: Vah, thou that destroyest the temple of God and in three days buildest it up again: Mark 15:30 Save thyself, coming down from the cross. Mark 15:31 In like manner also the chief priests, mocking, said with the scribes one to another: He saved others; himself he cannot save. Mark 15:32 Let Christ the king of Israel come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him, reviled him. Mark 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth until the ninth hour. Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour, Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying: Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabacthani? Which is, being interpreted: My God, My God, Why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15:35 And some of the standers by hearing, said: Behold he calleth Elias. Mark 15:36 And one running and filling a sponge with vinegar and putting it upon a reed, gave him to drink, saying: Stay, let us see if Elias come to take him down. Mark 15:37 And Jesus, having cried out with a loud voice, gave up the ghost. Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom.
but confessed by the centurion to be the Son of God:
Mark 15:39 And the centurion who stood over against him, seeing that crying out in this manner he had given up the ghost. said: Indeed this man was the son of God. Mark 15:40 And there were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalen and Mary the mother of James the Less and of Joseph and Salome, Mark 15:41 Who also when he was in Galilee followed him and ministered to him, and many other women that came up with him to Jerusalem.
Mark 15:42 And when evening was now come (because it was the Parasceve, that is, the day before the sabbath),
and is honourably buried by Joseph.
Mark 15:43 Joseph of Arimathea, a noble counsellor, who was also himself looking for the kingdom of God, came and went in boldly to Pilate and begged the body of Jesus. Mark 15:44 But Pilate wondered that he should be already dead. And sending for the centurion, he asked him if he were already dead. Mark 15:45 And when he had understood it by the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph. Mark 15:46 And Joseph, buying fine linen and taking him down, wrapped him up in the fine linen and laid him in a sepulchre which was hewed out of a rock. And he rolled a stone to the door of the sepulchre. Mark 15:47 And Mary Magdalen and Mary the mother of Joseph, beheld where he was laid.
