Jesus Sentenced to Be Crucified
1Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. 2The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe 3and went up to him again and again, saying, “Hail, king of the Jews!” And they slapped him in the face.
4Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews gathered there, “Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him.” 5When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, “Here is the man!”
6As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, “Crucify! Crucify!”
But Pilate answered, “You take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.”
7The Jewish leaders insisted, “We have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.”
8When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, 9and he went back inside the palace. “Where do you come from?” he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10“Do you refuse to speak to me?” Pilate said. “Don’t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?”
11Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.”
12From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jewish leaders kept shouting, “If you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar.”
13When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judge’s seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). 14It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon.
“Here is your king,” Pilate said to the Jews.
15But they shouted, “Take him away! Take him away! Crucify him!”
“Shall I crucify your king?” Pilate asked.
“We have no king but Caesar,” the chief priests answered.
16Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
The Crucifixion of Jesus
So the soldiers took charge of Jesus. 17Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (which in Aramaic is called Golgotha). 18There they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle.
19Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: jesus of nazareth, the king of the jews. 20Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”
22Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”
23When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
24“Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”
This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said,
“They divided my clothes among them
and cast lots for my garment.”19:24 Psalm 22:18
So this is what the soldiers did.
25Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to her, “Woman,19:26 The Greek for Woman does not denote any disrespect. here is your son,” 27and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.
The Death of Jesus
28Later, knowing that everything had now been finished, and so that Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” 29A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.
31Now it was the day of Preparation, and the next day was to be a special Sabbath. Because the Jewish leaders did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. 32The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. 33But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. 34Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus’ side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. 35The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe. 36These things happened so that the scripture would be fulfilled: “Not one of his bones will be broken,”19:36 Exodus 12:46; Num. 9:12; Psalm 34:20 37and, as another scripture says, “They will look on the one they have pierced.”19:37 Zech. 12:10
The Burial of Jesus
38Later, Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilate for the body of Jesus. Now Joseph was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly because he feared the Jewish leaders. With Pilate’s permission, he came and took the body away. 39He was accompanied by Nicodemus, the man who earlier had visited Jesus at night. Nicodemus brought a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about seventy-five pounds.19:39 Or about 34 kilograms 40Taking Jesus’ body, the two of them wrapped it, with the spices, in strips of linen. This was in accordance with Jewish burial customs. 41At the place where Jesus was crucified, there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb, in which no one had ever been laid. 42Because it was the Jewish day of Preparation and since the tomb was nearby, they laid Jesus there.
Jesũ Gũtuĩrwo kwambwo Mũtĩ-Igũrũ
119:1 Gũcook 25:3; Isa 50:6Hĩndĩ ĩyo Pilato akĩoya Jesũ, akĩmũhũũrithia iboko. 2Nacio thigari igĩtuma thũmbĩ ya mĩigua, ikĩmwĩkĩra mũtwe, na ikĩmũhumba kanjũ ya rangi wa ndathi, 3igathiiaga harĩ we o ihinda kwa ihinda, ikamũnyũrũragia ikiugaga atĩrĩ, “Ngeithi, mũthamaki wa Ayahudi!” Nacio ikamũgũthaga ũthiũ na hĩ.

No Pilato akĩmacookeria atĩrĩ, “Muoei mũmwambe mũtĩ igũrũ arĩ inyuĩ. Ha ũhoro wakwa, ndirona ũndũ o na ũrĩkũ angĩthitangĩrwo.”

8Rĩrĩa Pilato aiguire ũguo, agĩĩtigĩra mũno makĩria, 919:9 Joh 18:33; Mar 14:61agĩcooka thĩinĩ wa nyũmba ĩyo ya ũthamaki. Ningĩ akĩũria Jesũ atĩrĩ, “Wee-rĩ, uumĩte kũ?” Nowe Jesũ ndaigana kũmũcookeria. 10Pilato akĩmũũria atĩrĩ, “Kaĩ ũkũrega kũnjarĩria? Kaĩ ũtooĩ ndĩ na ũhoti wa gũkuohorithia, kana wa gũkwambithia mũtĩ igũrũ?”
1119:11 Arom 13:1; Joh 18:28-30Nake Jesũ akĩmũcookeria atĩrĩ, “Wee ndũngĩrĩ na ũhoti igũrũ rĩakwa korwo ndũheetwo guo kuuma igũrũ. Nĩ ũndũ ũcio ũrĩa ũũneanire kũrĩwe nĩwe ũrĩ na mehia marĩa manene.”
12Kuuma hĩndĩ ĩyo, Pilato akĩgeria kuohora Jesũ, no Ayahudi magĩthiĩ na mbere kwanĩrĩra atĩrĩ, “Ũngĩrekereria mũndũ ũyũ, wee ndũrĩ mũrata wa Kaisari. Mũndũ o wothe wĩtuaga mũthamaki nĩamenete Kaisari.”

Nake Pilato akĩmooria atĩrĩ, “Nyambithie Mũthamaki wanyu?”
Nao athĩnjĩri-Ngai arĩa anene magĩcookia atĩrĩ, “Ithuĩ tũtirĩ mũthamaki ũngĩ tiga Kaisari.”

22Nake Pilato akĩmacookeria atĩrĩ, “Ũguo ndandĩka nĩndandĩka.”
23Rĩrĩa thigari ciarĩkirie kwamba Jesũ, ikĩoya nguo ciake, igĩcigayania maita mana, o mũndũ yake, no kanjũ yatigarire. Nguo ĩyo ndĩarĩ na rũtumo, yatumĩtwo kuuma igũrũ nginya thĩ ĩrĩ o taama ũmwe.
