The Gospel of Jesus Christ - MARK 15
The continuation of the history of the Passion.
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.
2 And Pilate asked him: Art thou the king of the Jews: But he answering, saith to him: Thou sayest it.
3 *And the chief priests accused him in many things.
4 And Pilate again asked him, saying: Answerest thou nothing? behold in how many things they accuse thee.
5 But Jesus still answered nothing; so that Pilate wondered.
6 Now on the festival-day he was wont to release unto them one of the prisoners, whomsoever they demanded.
7 And there was one called Barabbas, who was put in prison with seditious men, who in the sedition had committed murder.
8 And when the multitude was come up, they began to desire that he would do as he had ever done to them.
9 And Pilate answered them, and said: Will you that I release to you the king of the Jews?
10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up through envy.
11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
12 *And Pilate again answering, saith to them: What will you then that I do to the king of the Jews?
13 *But they again cried out: Crucify him.
14 And Pilate saith to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more: Crucify him.
15 So Pilate being willing to satisfy the people, released to them Barabbas, and delivered up Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
16 *And the soldiers led him into the court of the palace, and they called together the whole band.
17 And they clothe him with purple, and platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon him.
18 And they began to salute him: Hail, king of the Jews!
19 And they struck his head with a reed: And they did spit on him, and bowing their knees, they worshipped him.
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.
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.
22 And they bring him into the place called Golgotha, which being interpreted, is, The place of Calvary.
23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he took it not.
24 *And crucifying him, they divided his garments, casting lots upon them what every man should take.
25 And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.
26 And the inscription of his cause was written over: The King of the Jews.
27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
28 *And the Scripture was fulfilled, which saith: And with the wicked he was reputed.
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:
30 Save thyself, coming down from the cross.
31 In like manner also the chief priests, with the Scribes, mocking, said one to another: He saved others, himself he cannot save.
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.
33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole earth, until the ninth hour.
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?
35 And some of the standers-by hearing, said: Behold he calleth Elias.
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.
37 And Jesus having cried out with a loud voice, gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in two, from the top to the bottom.
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.
40 *And there were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of James the less, and of Joseph; and Salome;
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.
42 *And when evening was now come, (because it was the Parasceve, that is, the day before the sabbath),
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.
44 But Pilate wondered that he should be already dead. And sending for the centurion, he asked him if he were already dead.
45 And when he had understood it by the centurion, he gave the body to Joseph.
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.
47 And Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of Joseph, beheld where he was laid.
