馬可福音 15

耶穌在彼拉多面前受審

1清早,祭司長、長老、律法教師和全公會的人商定後,便把耶穌綁起來押送到彼拉多那裡。

彼拉多問耶穌:「你是猶太人的王嗎?」

耶穌回答說:「如你所言。」

祭司長控告耶穌許多罪。

彼拉多又問道:「你看,他們控告你這麼多,你都不回答嗎?」

耶穌仍舊一言不發,彼拉多感到驚奇。

每年逾越節的時候,彼拉多都會照慣例按猶太人的要求釋放一個囚犯。 那時,有一個囚犯名叫巴拉巴,與其他作亂時殺過人的囚犯關在一起。 百姓聚來,要求彼拉多照慣例釋放囚犯。

彼拉多問:「你們要我為你們釋放猶太人的王嗎?」 10 因為他知道祭司長把耶穌押來是出於妒忌。 11 但祭司長卻煽動百姓,叫他們要求彼拉多釋放巴拉巴。

12 彼拉多只好問:「那麼,這位你們稱之為猶太人之王的,我如何處置呢?」

13 他們喊著說:「把祂釘在十字架上!」

14 彼拉多問:「為什麼?祂犯了什麼罪?」

他們卻更大聲地喊:「把祂釘在十字架上!」

15 為了取悅眾人,彼拉多釋放了巴拉巴,命人將耶穌鞭打後帶出去釘十字架。

耶穌受辱

16 於是,衛兵把耶穌帶進總督府的院子,集合了全營的兵。 17 他們給祂穿上紫袍,用荊棘編成王冠戴在祂頭上, 18 向祂行禮,並喊著說:「猶太人的王萬歲!」 19 他們用葦稈打祂的頭,向祂吐唾沫,跪拜祂。 20 戲弄完了,就脫去祂的紫袍,給祂穿上原來的衣服,押祂出去釘十字架。

釘十字架

21 亞歷山大和魯孚的父親古利奈人西門從鄉下來,途經那地方,衛兵就強迫他背耶穌的十字架。 22 他們把耶穌帶到各各他——意思是「髑髏地」, 23 拿沒藥調和的酒給祂喝,但祂不肯喝。 24 他們把耶穌釘在十字架上,還抽籤分祂的衣服。 25 他們釘祂十字架的時間是在上午九點鐘。 26 祂的罪狀牌上寫著「猶太人的王」。

27 他們還把兩個強盜釘在十字架上,一個在祂右邊,一個在祂左邊, 28 這應驗了聖經的話:「祂被列在罪犯中。」 29 過路的人都嘲笑祂,搖著頭說:「哈,你這要把聖殿拆毀又在三天內重建的人啊, 30 救救你自己,從十字架上下來吧!」

31 祭司長和律法教師也嘲諷說:「祂救了別人,卻救不了自己! 32 以色列的王基督,現在從十字架上下來吧!讓我們看看,我們就信了!」與祂同釘十字架的強盜也對祂出言不遜。

耶穌之死

33 正午時分,黑暗籠罩著整個大地,一直到下午三點。 34 大約在三點,耶穌大聲呼喊:「以羅伊,以羅伊,拉馬撒巴各大尼?」意思是:「我的上帝,我的上帝,你為什麼離棄我?」

35 有些站在旁邊的人聽見了,就說:「聽,祂在呼叫以利亞。」

36 有人跑去把一塊海綿蘸滿酸酒,綁在葦稈上送給祂喝,說:「等等,讓我們看看以利亞會不會救祂下來。」

37 耶穌大叫一聲,就斷了氣。 38 聖殿的幔子從上到下裂成兩半。 39 站在對面的百夫長看見耶穌喊叫[a]斷氣的情形,便說:「這人真是上帝的兒子!」

40 有些婦女在遠處觀看,其中有抹大拉的瑪麗亞、小雅各和約西的母親瑪麗亞並撒羅米。 41 耶穌在加利利時,她們已經跟隨祂、服侍祂了。此外還有好些跟著祂上耶路撒冷的婦女。

安葬耶穌

42 那天是猶太人的預備日,也就是安息日的前一天。傍晚, 43 亞利馬太人約瑟鼓起勇氣去見彼拉多,要求領取耶穌的遺體。他是一位德高望重的公會議員,一位等候上帝國降臨的人。 44 彼拉多聽見耶穌已經死了,十分驚訝,便把百夫長召來問個明白, 45 得知耶穌確實已死,便將耶穌的遺體交給約瑟。

46 約瑟把耶穌的遺體取下來,用買來的細麻布裹好,安放在一個在岩壁上鑿出的墓穴裡,又滾來一塊大石頭堵住洞口。 47 抹大拉的瑪麗亞和約西的母親瑪麗亞都親眼看到了安葬耶穌的地方。

Mark 15

Jesus Is Brought to Pilate

1It was very early in the morning. The chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law, and the whole Sanhedrin, made their plans. So they tied Jesus up and led him away. Then they handed him over to Pilate.

“Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate.

“You have said so,” Jesus replied.

The chief priests brought many charges against him. So Pilate asked him again, “Aren’t you going to answer? See how many things they charge you with.”

But Jesus still did not reply. Pilate was amazed.

It was the usual practice at the Passover Feast to let one prisoner go free. The people could choose the one they wanted. A man named Barabbas was in prison. He was there with some other people who had fought against the country’s rulers. They had committed murder while they were fighting against the rulers. The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did.

“Do you want me to let the king of the Jews go free?” asked Pilate. 10 He knew that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him because they wanted to get their own way. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd. So the crowd asked Pilate to let Barabbas go free instead.

12 “Then what should I do with the one you call the king of the Jews?” Pilate asked them.

13 “Crucify him!” the crowd shouted.

14 “Why? What wrong has he done?” asked Pilate.

But they shouted even louder, “Crucify him!”

15 Pilate wanted to satisfy the crowd. So he let Barabbas go free. He ordered that Jesus be whipped. Then he handed him over to be nailed to a cross.

The Soldiers Make Fun of Jesus

16 The soldiers led Jesus away into the palace. It was called the Praetorium. They called together the whole company of soldiers. 17 The soldiers put a purple robe on Jesus. Then they twisted thorns together to make a crown. They placed it on his head. 18 They began to call out to him, “We honor you, king of the Jews!” 19 Again and again they hit him on the head with a stick. They spit on him. They fell on their knees and pretended to honor him. 20 After they had made fun of him, they took off the purple robe. They put his own clothes back on him. Then they led him out to nail him to a cross.

Jesus Is Nailed to a Cross

21 A man named Simon was passing by. He was from Cyrene. He was the father of Alexander and Rufus. Simon was on his way in from the country. The soldiers forced him to carry the cross. 22 They brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha. The word Golgotha means the Place of the Skull. 23 Then they gave him wine mixed with spices. But he did not take it. 24 They nailed him to the cross. Then they divided up his clothes. They cast lots to see what each of them would get.

25 It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified him. 26 They wrote out the charge against him. It read,

the king of the jews.

27-28 They crucified with him two rebels against Rome. One was on his right and one was on his left. 29 Those who passed by shouted at Jesus and made fun of him. They shook their heads and said, “So you are going to destroy the temple and build it again in three days? 30 Then come down from the cross! Save yourself!” 31 In the same way the chief priests and the teachers of the law made fun of him among themselves. “He saved others,” they said. “But he can’t save himself! 32 Let this Messiah, this king of Israel, come down now from the cross! When we see that, we will believe.” Those who were being crucified with Jesus also made fun of him.

Jesus Dies

33 At noon, darkness covered the whole land. It lasted three hours. 34 At three o’clock in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” This means “My God, my God, why have you deserted me?” (Psalm 22:1)

35 Some of those standing nearby heard Jesus cry out. They said, “Listen! He’s calling for Elijah.”

36 Someone ran and filled a sponge with wine vinegar. He put it on a stick. He offered it to Jesus to drink. “Leave him alone,” he said. “Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down.”

37 With a loud cry, Jesus took his last breath.

38 The temple curtain was torn in two from top to bottom. 39 A Roman commander was standing there in front of Jesus. He saw how Jesus died. Then he said, “This man was surely the Son of God!”

40 Not very far away, some women were watching. Mary Magdalene was among them. Mary, the mother of the younger James and of Joseph, was also there. So was Salome. 41 In Galilee these women had followed Jesus. They had taken care of his needs. Many other women were also there. They had come up with him to Jerusalem.

Jesus Is Buried

42 It was the day before the Sabbath. That day was called Preparation Day. As evening approached, 43 Joseph went boldly to Pilate and asked for Jesus’ body. Joseph was from the town of Arimathea. He was a leading member of the Jewish Council. He was waiting for God’s kingdom. 44 Pilate was surprised to hear that Jesus was already dead. So he called for the Roman commander. He asked him if Jesus had already died. 45 The commander said it was true. So Pilate gave the body to Joseph. 46 Then Joseph bought some linen cloth. He took down the body and wrapped it in the linen. He put it in a tomb cut out of rock. Then he rolled a stone against the entrance to the tomb. 47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joseph saw where Jesus’ body had been placed.
