rjpHEN Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! And they smote him with their hands.
4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him.
5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. . ..
7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was the more afraid;
9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? know est thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Cesar's friend: whosoever maketh himself a King speaketh against Cesar.
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment-seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about
C c 3 th« the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
15 But they cried out, Away with kim, away with him, Crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? the chief priests answered, We have no king but Cesar.
1§ Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesus and led him away.
17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place ef a Skull, which is called in the Hebrew, Golgotha:
• 18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and J esus in the midst.
19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
S0 This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
21 •Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
22 Pilate answered, What I have written, I have written.
23 Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout.
24 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots, 'lliese thing? therefore the soldiers did.
25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the icife of Cleophas, and MaryMagdalene.
26 When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
6 27 Then
.27 Then saith he to the disciple. Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.
28 After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst.
29 Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth.
30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
31 The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.
82 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other which was crucified with him.
33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
34 But -one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came thereout blood and water, ,;,
. 35 And he that saw j'r bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. • . i
36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled. A bone of him shall not be broken. .
37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced. ,
38 And after this, Joseph of Arimathea (being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews,) besought Pilate that h« might take away the body of Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore and took the body of Jesus. , ... ., ,
39 And there came also Nicodemus, which at the first came to Jesus by night, and brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about an hundred pound weight. • ,
C c 4 40 Then
40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury.
41 Now in the place where he was crucified there was a garden ; and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid.
42 There laid they Jesus therefore, because of the Jews' preparation day; for the sepulchre was nigli at hand.
CHAP. XXI. 1 Christ appearing again, 15 giveth Peter a charge; 20
and rebuketh his curiosity. A FTER these things Jesus shewed himself again to the
'• disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on this wiser shewed he himself': •'
'' ' 2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas called 'Didwflus, and Nafhanael of Cana in Galilee, and the sons of Zebedee, and two oilier of his disciples. <s" '3 Simon Peter saith onto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went forth, and etitered into a ship immediately; and that night they caught nothing.
i '4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it was Jesus. '3 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have ye any meat? 'They answered him, No.
rj And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of 'lhe'ship,ahd ye shall find. They cast therefore,> imd now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes. "'.' i' Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
8 And the other disciples came in n little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
'D' As soon theii as they were come to land, they saw a fire • of coals there, and tisli laid thereon, and bread.
10 Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye hate . now caught.
\ 1 Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
12 Jesus suith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him. Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord.
13 Jesus then cometh, andtaketh bread, and giveth them, and i is 11 likewise.
14 This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples after that he was risen from the dead.
16 ^ f So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.
1G He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me ? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
18 Verily, verily, 1 say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.
19 This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me.
20 ^f Then Peter turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following, which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee?
21 Peter seeing him, saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do?
22 Jesus saith unto him, if I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.
