Mark: 15

Jesus before Pilate  Mk.15.1-5 (Jerusalem)[ Mk.15.1-5 → ] - Mt.27.11-14, Lk.23.1-5, Jn.18.28-38

1AS SOON AS MORNING CAME the chief priests, having made their plan with the elders and lawyers and all the Council, put Jesus in chains; then they led him away and handed him over to Pilate.

2Pilate asked him, 'Are you the king of the Jews?' He replied, 'The words are yours.' [Or: It is as you say.] 3And the chief priests brought many charges against him. 4Pilate questioned him again: 'Have you nothing to say in your defence? You see how many charges they are bringing against you.' 5But, to Pilate's astonishment, Jesus made no further reply.

Jesus Sentenced to Die  Mk.15.6-15 c. Passover 30ce. (Jerusalem)[ Mk.15.6-15 → ] - Mt.27.15-26, Lk.23.13-25, Jn.18.39-19.16

6At the festival season the Governor used to release one prisoner at the people's request. 7As it happened, the man known as Barabbas was then in custody with the rebels who had committed murder in the rising. 8When the crowd appeared [Some witnesses read: shouted.] asking for the usual favour, 9Pilate replied, 'Do you wish me to release for you the king of the Jews?' 10For he knew it was out of spite that they had brought Jesus before him. 11But the chief priests incited the crowd to ask him to release Barabbas rather than Jesus. 12Pilate spoke to them again: 'Then what shall I do with the man you call king of the Jews?' 13They shouted back, 'Crucify him!' 14'Why, what harm has he done?' Pilate asked. They shouted all the louder, 'Crucify him!' 15So Pilate, in his desire to satisfy the mob, released Barabbas to them; and he had Jesus flogged and handed him over to be crucified.

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

16Then the soldiers took him inside the courtyard (the Governor's headquarters [Greek: praetorium.]) and called together the whole company. 17They dressed him in purple, and having plaited a crown of thorns, placed it on his head. 18Then they began to salute him with, 'Hail, is King of the Jews!' 19They beat him about the head with a cane and spat upon him, and then knelt and paid mock homage to him. 20When they had finished their mockery, they stripped him of the purple and dressed him in his own clothes.

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

21THEN THEY TOOK HIM OUT to crucify him. A man called Simon, from Cyrene, the father of Alexander and Rufus, was passing by on his way in from the country, and they pressed him into service to carry his cross.

22They brought him to the place called Golgotha, which means 'Place of a skull'. 23He was offered drugged wine, but he would not take it.

- divided his garments among them .  Mk.15.24 - Ps.22.18

24Then they fastened him to the cross. They divided his clothes among them, casting lots to decide what each should have.

25The hour of the crucifixion was nine in the morning, 26and the inscription giving the charge against him read, 'The king of the Jews.' 27Two bandits were crucified with him, one on his right and the other on his left." [Some witnesses add: Thus that text of Scripture came true which says, 'He was reckoned among the criminals.'] 28[Some manuscripts add (v.28): Thus that text of Scripture came true which says, 'He was reckoned among criminals.']

29 [ Ps.22.7. ] The passers-by hurled abuse at him: 'Aha!' they cried, wagging their heads, 'you would pull the temple down, would you, and build it in three days? 30Come down from the cross and save yourself!' 31So too the chief priests and the doctors of the law jested with one another: 'He saved others,' they said, 'but he cannot save himself. 32Let the Messiah, the king of Israel, come down now from the cross. If we see that, we shall believe.' Even those who were crucified with him taunted him.

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

33At midday darkness fell over the whole land, which lasted till three in the afternoon; 34 [ Ps.22.1, Ps.109.25. ] and at three Jesus cried aloud, 'Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?', which means, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' [Some witnesses read: My God, My God, why hast thou shamed me?] 35Some of the passers-by, on hearing this, said, 'Hark, he is calling Elijah.' 36 [ Ps.69.21. ] A man ran and soaked a sponge in sour wine and held it to his lips on the end of a cane. 'Let us see', he said, 'if Elijah will come to take him down.'
37Then Jesus gave a loud cry and died. 38And the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. 39And when the centurion who was standing opposite him saw how he died, [Some witnesses read: saw that he died with a cry.] he said, 'Truly this man was a son of God.' [Or: the Son of God.]

40A NUMBER OF WOMEN were also present, watching from a distance. Among them were Mary of Magdala, Mary the mother of James the younger and of Joseph, and Salome, 41who had all followed him and waited on him when he was in Galilee, and there were several others who had come up to Jerusalem with him.

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

42By this time evening had come; and as it was Preparation-day (that is, the day before the Sabbath), 43Joseph of Arimathaea, a respected member of the Council, a man who was eagerly awaiting the kingdom of God, bravely went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. 44Pilate was surprised to hear that he was already dead; so he sent for the centurion and asked him whether it was long since he died. 45And when he heard the centurion's report, he gave Joseph leave to take the dead body. 46So Joseph bought a linen sheet, took him down from the cross, and wrapped him in the sheet. Then he laid him in a tomb cut out of the rock, and rolled a stone against the entrance. 47And Mary of Magdala and Mary the mother of Joseph were watching and saw where he was laid.
