15:1 And immediately in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders and the scribes, and the whole Sanhedrim having prepared counsel, bound Jesus and led him away, and delivered him to Pilate.
2 And Pilate asked him: Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered and said to him: Thou sayest.
3 And the chief priests accused him of many things.
4 And Pilate again asked him: Answerest thou nothing? See of how many things they accuse thee,
5 But Jesus no longer answered any thing: so that Pilate wondered.
6 But at every feast he released to them one prisoner whom they chose.
7 And there was one called Barabbas bound with the insurgents who, in the insurrection, had committed murder.
8 And the multitude coming up began to ask that he would do as he was accustomed to do for them.
9 And Pilate answered them, saying: Will you that I release to you the King of the Jews?
10 For he knew that because of envy the chief priests had delivered him up.
11 But the chief priests instigated the multitude that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
12 And Pilate again answered and said to them: What then will you that I shall do with him whom you call King of the Jews?
13 They again cried out: Crucify him.
14 But Pilate said to them: Why, what evil has he done? But they cried out vehemently: Crucify him.
15 And Pilate, willing to satisfy the multitude, released to them Barabbas, and delivered Jesus, after he had scourged him, to be crucified.
16 And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the Pretorium, and called together the whole band.
17 And they clothed him in purple, and having plaited a crown of thorns they put it on him:
18 And began to salute him: Hail, King of the Jews.
19 And they struck his head with a reed, and spit upon him, and bowing the knees they worshipped him.
20 And when they had derided him, they took of from him the purple, and put on him his own clothes. And they led him out to crucify him,
21 And they impressed one, Simon a Cyrenian, as he passed by coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross.
22 And they bring him to the place Golgotha, which is, when translated, the place of a skull.
23 And they gave him wine mingled with myrrh; but he did not receive it.
24 And they crucified him, and divided his garments among them, casting a lot on them what each should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the superscription of his accusation written on him was, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27 And with him they crucify two robbers, one on his right and one on his left.
29 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads and saying: Aha, thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days,
30 Save thyself by coming down from the cross.
31 In like manner also the chief priests deriding among themselves with the scribes said: Others he saved, himself he cannot save.
32 Christ the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reproached him.
33 And when the sixth hour had come, there came a darkness over the whole land till the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice: Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthanei, which is, translated: My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of those that stood by, hearing it, said: Lo, he calls for Elijah.
36 But someone ran and filled a sponge with vinegar, and putting it on a reed, gave him to drink, saying: Wait, let us see if Elijah is coming to take him down.
37 But Jesus having uttered a loud cry expired.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two from top to bottom.
39 And the centurion that stood by opposite to him, seeing that he thus expired, said: Truly this man was the Son of God.
40 And there were women also looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the younger, and the mother of Jesus, and Salome;
41 Who, when he was in Galilee, followed him and ministered to him; and many others came up with him to Jerusalem.
42 And evening having now come, because it was the preparation, which is sabbath-eve,
43 Came Joseph who was of Arimathea, an honorable counsellor, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God, and went in boldly to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
44 But Pilate wondered if he were already dead; and calling to him the centurion, he inquired if he had been dead any time;
45 And learning from the centurion, he gave the corpse to Joseph.
46 And he bought linen, took him down, wrapped him in the linen, and laid him in a sepulcher that had been hewed out of a rock, and rolled a stone to the door of the sepulcher.
47 And Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of Jesus saw where he was laid.
