19:1 Pilate therefore then took Jesus and scourged him.
2 And the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and put it on his head, and threw a purple garment around him,
3 and came to him and said: Hail, King of the Jews; and they struck him with the open hand.
4 Pilate again came forth and said to them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault.
5 Jesus therefore came forth wearing the crown of thorns and purple garment. And he says to them: Behold the man.
6 Therefore when the chief priests and the attendants saw him, they cried out: Crucify, crucify. Pilate says to them: Take you him and crucify him; for I find no fault in him.
7 The Jews answered: We have a law, and according to the law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8 Thereupon when Pilate heard this word, he was the more afraid,
9 and went into the pretorium again, and said to Jesus: Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Pilate says to him: Speakest thou not to me? Knowest thou not that I have authority to release thee and authority to crucify thee?
11 Jesus answered: Thou couldst have had no authority against me, unless it had been given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me to thee has the greater sin.
12 After this Pilate sought to release him; but the Jews cried out, saying: If thou release this man, thou art not a friend of Caesar: every one that makes himself king speaks against Caesar.
13 Then Pilate, after hearing these words, brought Jesus forth, and sat on the judgment-seat in a place called The Pavement, but in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 And it was the preparation of the passover: it was about the sixth hour. And he says to the Jews: Behold your king.
15 They therefore cried out: Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate says to them: Shall I crucify your king? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.
16 Then therefore he delivered him to them to be crucified. They therefore took Jesus;
17 and bearing the cross for himself, he went forth to a place called the place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha,
18 where they crucified him, and with him two others, on this side and on that, but Jesus in the midst.
19 But Pilate wrote a title and put it on the cross; and it was written: JESUS THE NAZARENE, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
20 Many of the Jews therefore read this title, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Latin, in Greek.
21 The chief priests of the Jews then said to, Pilate: Write not: The king of the Jews, but that he said: I am the king of the Jews.
22 Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written.
23 The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, for each soldier a part, and his coat. But the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore one to another: Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be. That the scripture might be fulfilled: They divided my garments among them, and on my raiment they cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
25 But there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Cleopas, and Mary Magdalene.
26 Jesus therefore seeing his mother, and the disciple whom he loved standing by, says to his mother: Woman, behold thy son.
27 Then he says to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
28 After this, Jesus, knowing that all things had been already finished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, says: I thirst.
29 There lay a vessel full of vinegar: having therefore put a sponge full of vinegar on hyssop, they put it to his mouth.
30 When therefore he had received the vinegar, he said: It is finished; and having bowed his head, he gave up the spirit.
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies might not remain on the cross during the sabbath, for that sabbath was a great day, besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
32 Then came the soldiers and broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him;
33 but coming to Jesus, when they saw him already dead, they broke not his legs;
34 but one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and immediately there came forth blood and water.
35 And he that saw it has testified, and his testimony is true, and he knows that he speaks what is true, that you also may believe.
36 For these things took place that the scripture might be fulfilled: A bone of him shall not be broken.
37 And again another scripture says: They shall look on him whom they pierced.
38 But after these things Joseph, who was of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave permission. They came therefore and took him away.
39 But Nicodemus also came, he that had come to him by night at the first, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds.
40 They therefore took the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as is the custom of the Jews to prepare for burial.
41 But there was, in the place where he had been crucified, a garden, and in the garden a new sepulcher, in which no one had ever yet been laid.
42 There then because of the preparation of the Jews, for the sepulcher was near, laid they Jesus.
