Matthew

Jesus Brought before Pilate  Mt.27.1-2 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.27.1-2 → ] - Mk.15.1, Lk.23.1-2, Jn.18.28-32

1WHEN MORNING CAME, the chief priests and the elders of the nation met in conference to plan the death of Jesus. 2They then put him in chains and led him away, to hand him over to Pilate, the Roman Governor.

The Death of Judas  Mt.27.3-10 (Jerusalem) - Ac.1.18-19

3When Judas the traitor saw that Jesus had been condemned, he was seized with remorse, and returned the thirty silver pieces to the chief priests and elders. 4'I have sinned,' he said; 'I have brought an innocent man to his death.' But they said, 'What is that to us? 5See to that yourself.' So he threw the money down in the temple and left them, and went and hanged himself.

6Taking up the money, the chief priests argued: 'This cannot be put into the temple fund; it is blood-money.' 7So after conferring they used it to buy the Potter's Field, as a burial-place for foreigners. 8This explains the name 'Blood Acre', by which that field has been known ever since; 9 [ Zch.11.12-13. ] and in this way fulfilment was given to the prophetic utterance of Jeremiah: 'They took Or: I took. the thirty silver pieces, the price set on a man's head (for that was his price among the Israelites), 10and gave the money for the potter's field, as the Lord directed me.'

Jesus Questioned by Pilate  Mt.27.11-14[ Mt.27.11-14 → ] - Mk.15.2-5, Lk.23.3-5, Jn.18.33-38

11Jesus was now brought before the Governor; and as he stood there the Governor asked him, 'Are you the king of the Jews?' 'The words are yours' Or: It is as you say., said Jesus; 12and to the charges laid against him by the chief priests and elders he made no reply. 13Then Pilate said to him, 'Do you not hear all this evidence that is brought against you?'; 14but he still refused to answer one word, to the Governor's great astonishment.

Jesus Sentenced to Die  Mt.27.15-26 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.27.15-26 → ] - Mk.15.6-15, Lk.23.13-25, Jn.18.39-19.16

15At the festival season it was the Governor's custom to release one prisoner chosen by the people. 16There was then in custody a man of some notoriety, called Jesus Some witnesses omit: Jesus. Bar-Abbas. 17When they were assembled Pilate said to them, 'Which would you like me to release to you Jesus Bar-Abbas, or Jesus called Messiah?' 18For he knew that it was out of spite that they had brought Jesus before him.

19While Pilate was sitting in court a message came to him from his wife: 'Have nothing to do with that innocent man; I was much troubled on his account in my dreams last night.'

20Meanwhile the chief priests and elders had persuaded the crowd to ask for the release of Bar-Abbas and to have Jesus put to death. 21So when the Governor asked, 'Which of the two do you wish me to release to you?', they said, 'Bar-Abbas.' 22'Then what am I to do with Jesus called Messiah?' asked Pilate; and with one voice they answered, 'Crucify him!' 23'Why, what harm has he done?' Pilate asked; but they shouted all the louder, 'Crucify him!'

24Pilate could see that nothing was being gained, and a riot was starting; so he took water and washed his hands in full view of the people, saying, 'My hands are clean of this man's blood; see to that yourselves.' 25And with one voice the people cried, 'His blood be on us, and on our children.' 26He then released Bar-Abbas to them; but he had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.

The Soldiers Mock Jesus  Mt.27.27-31 (Jerusalem)[ Mt.27.27-31 → ] - Mk.15.16-20, Jn.19.2-3

27PILATE'S SOLDIERS then took Jesus into the Governor's headquarters, where they collected the whole company round him. 28First they stripped him and dressed him in a scarlet mantle; 29and plaiting a crown of thorns they placed it on his head, with a cane in his right hand. Falling on their knees before him they jeered at him: 'Hail, King of the Jews!' 30They spat on him, and used the cane to beat him about the head. 31Finally, when the mockery was over, they took off the mantle and dressed him in his own clothes.

Then they led him away to be crucified.

The Crucifixion of Jesus  Mt.27.32-44[ Mt.27.32-44 → ] - Mk.15.21-32, Lk.23.26-43, Jn.19.17-27

32On their way out they met a man from Cyrene, Simon by name, and pressed him into service to carry his cross.

33So they came to a place called Golgotha (which means 'Place of a skull') 34 [ Ps.69.21. ] and there they offered him a draught of wine mixed with gall; but when he had tasted it he would not drink.

35 [ Ps.22.18. ] After fastening him to the cross they divided his clothes among them by casting lots, 36and then sat down there to keep watch. 37Over his head was placed the inscription giving the charge: 'This is Jesus the king of the Jews.'

38Two bandits were crucified with him, one on his right and the other on his left.

39 [ Ps.22.7, Ps.109.25, Lm.2.15. ] The passers-by hurled abuse at him: they wagged their heads 40and cried, 'You would pull the temple down, would you, and build it in three days? Come down from the cross and save yourself, if you are indeed the Son of God.' 41So too the chief priests with the lawyers and elders mocked at him: 42'He saved others,' they said, 'but he cannot save himself. King of Israel, indeed! Let him come down now from the cross, and then we will believe him. 43 [ Ps.22.8. ] Did he trust in God? Let God rescue him, if he wants him—for he said he was God's Son.' 44Even the bandits who were crucified with him taunted him in the same way.

The Death of Jesus  Mt.27.45-56 (Golgotha)[ Mt.27.45-56 → ] - Mk.15.33-41, Lk.23.44-49, Jn.19.28-30

45Darkness fell over the whole land from midday until three in the afternoon; 46 [ Ps.22.1. ] and about three Jesus cried aloud, 'Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?', which means, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' 47Some of the bystanders, on hearing this, said, 'He is calling Elijah.' 48One of them ran at once and fetched a sponge, which he soaked in sour wine, and held it to his lips on the end of a cane. 49But the others said, 'Let us see if Elijah will come to save him.'

50Jesus again gave a loud cry, and breathed his last. 51At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. There was an earthquake, the rocks split 52and the graves opened, and many of God's saints arose from sleep; 53and coming out of their graves after his resurrection they entered the Holy City, where many saw them. 54And when the centurion and his men who were keeping watch over Jesus saw the earthquake and all that was happening, they were filled with awe, and they said, 'Truly this man was a son of God.' Or: the Son of God.

55A NUMBER OF WOMEN were also present, watching from a distance; they had followed Jesus from Galilee and waited on him. 56Among them were Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James and Joseph, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.

The Burial of Jesus  Mt.27.57-61 (The Garden)[ Mt.27.57-61 → ] - Mk.15.42-47, Lk.23.50-56, Jn.19.38-42

57When evening fell, there came a man of Arimathaea, Joseph by name, who was a man of means, and had himself become a disciple of Jesus. 58He approached Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave orders that he should have it. 59Joseph took the body, wrapped it in a clean linen sheet, 60and laid it in his own unused tomb, which he had cut out of the rock; he then rolled a large stone against the entrance, and went away. 61Mary of Magdala was there, and the other Mary, sitting opposite the grave.

The Guard on the Tomb  Mt.27.62-66 (The Garden)

62Next day, the morning after that Friday, the chief priests and the Pharisees came in a body to Pilate. 63'Your Excellency,' they said, 'we recall how that impostor said while he was still alive, "I am to be raised after three days." 64So will you give orders for the grave to be made secure until the third day? Otherwise his disciples may come, steal the body, and then tell the people that he has been raised from the dead; and the final deception will be worse than the first.' 65'You may have your guard,' said Pilate; 'go and make it secure as best you can.' 66So they went and made the grave secure; they sealed the stone, and left the guard in charge.
