John

Jesus Sentenced to Die  Jn.19.1-16 Passover, c.30ce[ Jn.19.1-16 → ] - Mt.27.15-26, Mk.15.6-15, Lk.23.13-25

1Pilate now took Jesus and had him flogged; 2and the soldiers plaited a crown of thorns and placed it on his head, and robed him in a purple cloak. 3Then time after time they came up to him, crying, 'Hail, King of the Jews!', and struck him on the face.

4Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews, 'Here he is; I am bringing him out to let you know that I find no case against him'; 5and Jesus came out, wearing the crown of thorns and the purple cloak. 'Behold the Man!' said Pilate. 6The chief priests and their henchmen saw him and shouted, 'Crucify! crucify!' 'Take him and crucify him yourselves,' said Pilate; 'for my pan I find no case against him.' 7The Jews answered, 'We have a law; and by that law he ought to die, because he has claimed to be Son of God.'

8When Pilate heard that, he was more afraid than ever, 9and going back into his headquarters he asked Jesus, 'Where have you come from?' But Jesus gave him no answer. 10'Do you refuse to speak to me?' said Pilate. 'Surely you know that I have authority to release you, and I have authority to crucify you?' 11'You would have no authority at all over me', Jesus replied, 'if it had not been granted you from above; and therefore the deeper guilt lies with the man who handed me over to you.'

12From that moment Pilate tried hard to release him; but the Jews kept shouting, 'If you let this man go, you are no friend to Caesar; any man who claims to be a king is defying Caesar.' 13When Pilate heard what they were saying, he brought Jesus out and took his seat on the tribunal at the place known as 'The Pavement' ('Gabbatha' in the language of the Jews). 14It was the eve of Passover, Or: It was Friday in Passover. about noon. Pilate said to the Jews, 'Here is your king.' 15They shouted, 'Away with him! Away with him! Crucify him!' 'Crucify your king?' said Pilate. 'We have no king but Caesar', the Jews replied. 16Then at last, to satisfy them, he handed Jesus over to be crucified.

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

17JESUS WAS NOW TAKEN in charge and, carrying his own cross, went out to the Place of the Skull, as it is called (or, in the Jews' language, 'Golgotha'), 18where they crucified him, and with him two others, one on the right, one on the left, and Jesus between them.

19And Pilate wrote an inscription to be fastened to the cross; it read, 'Jesus of Nazareth King of the Jews.' 20This inscription was read by many Jews, because the place where Jesus was crucified was not far from the city, and the inscription was in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek. 21Then the Jewish chief priests said to Pilate, 'You should not write "King of the Jews"; write, "He claimed to be king of the Jews." ' 22Pilate replied, 'What I have written, I have written.'

23The soldiers, having crucified Jesus, took possession of his clothes, and divided them into four parts, one for each soldier, leaving out the tunic. The tunic was seamless, woven in one piece throughout; 24so they said to one another, 'We must not tear this; let us toss for it'; and thus the text of Scripture came true: 'They shared my garments among them, and cast lots for my clothing.'

25That is what the soldiers did. But meanwhile near the cross where Jesus hung stood his mother, with her sister, Mary wife of Clopas, and Mary of Magdala. 26Jesus saw his mother, with the disciple whom he loved standing beside her. He said to her, 'Mother, there is your son'; 27and to the disciple, 'There is your mother'; and from that moment the disciple took her into his home.

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

28After that, Jesus, aware that all had now come to its appointed end, said in fulfilment of Scripture, 'I thirst.' 29A jar stood there full of sour wine; so they soaked a sponge with the wine, fixed it on a javelin, So one witness; the others read: on marjoram. and held it up to his lips. 30Having received the wine, he said, 'It is accomplished!' He bowed his head and gave up his spirit. Or: breathed out his life.

The Piercing of Jesus' Side  Jn.19.31-37 (Golgotha)

31Because it was the eve of Passover, Or: Because it was Friday in Passover ... the Jews were anxious that the bodies should not remain on the cross for the coming Sabbath, since that Sabbath was a day of great solemnity; so they requested Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32The soldiers accordingly came to the first of his fellow-victims and to the second, and broke their legs; 33but when they came to Jesus, they found that he was already dead, so they did not break his legs. 34But one of the soldiers stabbed his side with a lance, and at once there was a flow of blood and water. 35This is vouched for by an eyewitness, whose evidence is to be trusted. He knows that he speaks the truth, so that you too may believe; 36 [ Ps.34.20, Ex.12.46, Nu.9.12. ] for this happened in fulfilment of the text of Scripture: 'No bone of his shall be broken.' 37 [ Zch.12.10. ] And another text says, 'They shall look on him whom they pierced.'

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

38AFTER THAT, PILATE was approached by Joseph of Arimathaea, a disciple of Jesus, but a secret disciple for fear of the Jews, who Or: of Aramathaea. He was a disciple of Jesus, but had gone into hiding for fear of the Jews. He now ... asked to be allowed to remove the body of Jesus. Pilate gave the permission; so Joseph came and took the body away. 39He was joined by Nicodemus (the man who had first visited Jesus by night), who brought with him a mixture of myrrh and aloes, more than half a hundredweight. 40They took the body of Jesus and wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen cloth according to Jewish burial-customs. 41Now at the place where he had been crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, not yet used for burial. 42There, because the tomb was near at hand and it was the eve of the Jewish Sabbath, they laid Jesus.
