Mark 15

Jesus brought bound, and accused before Pilate.

Mark 15:1 And anon in the dawning, the hie Priestes helde a Councill with the Elders, and the Scribes, and the whole Council, and bound Iesus, and led him away, and deliuered him to Pilate. Mark 15:2 Then Pilate asked him, Art thou the King of the Iewes? And hee answered, and sayde vnto him, Thou sayest it. Mark 15:3 And the hie Priestes accused him of many things. Mark 15:4 Wherefore Pilate asked him againe, saying, Answerest thou nothing? beholde howe many things they witnesse against thee. Mark 15:5 But Iesus answered no more at all, so that Pilate marueiled. Mark 15:6 Nowe at the feast, Pilate did deliuer a prisoner vnto them, whomesoeuer they woulde desire. Mark 15:7 Then there was one named Barabbas, which was bounde with his fellowes, that had made insurrection, who in the insurrection had committed murther. Mark 15:8 And the people cried aloude, and began to desire that he woulde doe as he had euer done vnto them. Mark 15:9 Then Pilate answered them, and said, Will ye that I let loose vnto you the King of ye Iewes? Mark 15:10 For he knewe that the hie Priestes had deliuered him of enuie. Mark 15:11 But the high Priestes had moued the people to desire that he would rather deliuer Barabbas vnto them. Mark 15:12 And Pilate answered, and said againe vnto them, What will ye then that I doe with him, whom ye call the King of the Iewes? Mark 15:13 And they cried againe, Crucifie him. Mark 15:14 Then Pilate said vnto them, But what euill hath he done? And they cryed the more feruently, 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 Pilate willing to content the people, loosed them Barabbas, & deliuered Iesus, when he had scourged him, that he might be crucified. Mark 15:16 Then the souldiers led him away into the hall, which is the common hall, and called together the whole band,

He is crowned with thorns,

Mark 15:17 And clad him with purple, and platted a crowne of thornes, and put it about his head, Mark 15:18 And began to salute him, saying, Haile, King of the Iewes.

spit on, and mocked:

Mark 15:19 And they smote him on the head with a reede, and spat vpon him, and bowed the knees, and did him reuerence. Mark 15:20 And whe they had mocked him, they tooke the purple off him, and put his owne clothes on him, and led him out to crucifie him.

fainteth in bearing his cross:

Mark 15:21 And they compelled one that passed by, called Simon of Cyrene (which came out of the countrey, and was father of Alexander and Rufus) to beare his crosse. Mark 15:22 And they brought him to a place named Golgotha, which is by interpretation, the place of dead mens skulles. Mark 15:23 And they gaue him to drinke wine mingled with myrrhe: but he receiued it not. Mark 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they parted his garments, casting lots for them, what euery man should haue. Mark 15:25 And it was the third houre, when they crucified him. Mark 15:26 And ye title of his cause was written aboue, That king of the iewes.

hangeth between two thieves:

Mark 15:27 They crucified also with him two theeues, the one on ye right hand, & the other on his left. Mark 15:28 Thus the Scripture was fulfilled, which sayth, And he was counted among the wicked.

suffereth the triumphing reproaches of the Jews:

Mark 15:29 And they that went by, railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Hey, thou that destroyest the Temple, & buildest it in three dayes, Mark 15:30 Saue thy selfe, and come downe from the crosse. Mark 15:31 Likewise also euen the hie Priests mocking, said among themselues with the Scribes, He saued other men, himselfe he cannot saue. Mark 15:32 Let Christ the King of Israel nowe come downe from the crosse, that we may see, and beleeue. They also that were crucified with him, reuiled him. Mark 15:33 Nowe when the sixt houre was come, darkenesse arose ouer all the land vntill the ninth houre. Mark 15:34 And at the ninth houre Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lamma-sabachthani? which is by interpretation, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? Mark 15:35 And some of them that stoode by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias. Mark 15:36 And one ranne, and filled a spondge full of vineger, and put it on a reede, and gaue him to drinke, saying, Let him alone: let vs see if Elias will come, and take him downe. Mark 15:37 And Iesus cryed with a loude voyce, and gaue vp the ghost. Mark 15:38 And the vaile of the Temple was rent in twaine, from the toppe to the bottome.

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

Mark 15:39 Nowe when the Centurion, which stoode ouer against him, sawe that he thus crying gaue vp the ghost, he saide, Truely this man was the Sonne of God. Mark 15:40 There were also women, which beheld afarre off, among whom was Marie Magdalene, and Marie (the mother of Iames the lesse, and of Ioses) and Salome, Mark 15:41 Which also when he was in Galile, folowed him, and ministred vnto him, and many other women which came vp with him vnto Hierusalem.

Mark 15:42 And nowe when the night was come (because it was the day of the preparation that is before the Sabbath)

and is honourably buried by Joseph.

Mark 15:43 Ioseph of Arimathea, an honorable counsellour, which also looked for the kingdome of God, came, and went in boldly vnto Pilate, and asked the body of Iesus. Mark 15:44 And Pilate marueiled, if he were already dead, and called vnto him the Centurion, and asked of him whether he had bene any while dead. Mark 15:45 And when he knewe the trueth of the Centurion, he gaue the body to Ioseph: Mark 15:46 Who bought a linnen cloth, & tooke him downe, and wrapped him in the linnen cloth, and laide him in a tombe that was hewen out of a rocke, and rolled a stone vnto the doore of the sepulchre: Mark 15:47 And Marie Magdalene, and Marie Ioses mother, behelde where he should be layed.
