The trial and crucifixion of Jesus

1AFTER this prayer, Jesus went out with his disciples across the Kedron ravine. There was a garden there, and he and his disciples went into it.

2The place was known to Judas, his betrayer, because Jesus had often met there with his disciples.

3So Judas made his way there with a detachment of soldiers, and with temple police provided by the chief priests and the Pharisees; they were equipped with lanterns, torches, and weapons.

4Jesus, knowing everything that was to happen to him, stepped forward and asked them, “Who is it you want?”

5“Jesus of Nazareth,” they answered. Jesus said, “I am he.” And Judas the traitor was standing there with them.

6When Jesus said, “I am he,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

7Again he asked, “Who is it you want?” “Jesus of Nazareth,” they repeated.

8“I have told you that I am he,” Jesus answered. “If I am the man you want, let these others go.”

9(This was to make good his words, “I have not lost one of those you gave me.”)

10Thereupon Simon Peter drew the sword he was wearing and struck at the high priest's servant, cutting off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.

11Jesus said to Peter, “Put away your sword. This is the cup the Father has given me; shall I not drink it?”

12THE troops with their commander, and the Jewish police, now arrested Jesus and secured him.

13They took him first to Annas, father-in-law of Caiaphas, the high priest for that year --

14the same Caiaphas who had advised the Jews that it would be to their interest if one man died for the people.

15Jesus was followed by Simon Peter and another disciple. This disciple, who was known to the high priest, went with Jesus into the high priest's courtyard,

16but Peter stayed outside at the door. So the other disciple, the high priest's acquaintance, went back and spoke to the girl on duty at the door, and brought Peter in.

17The girl said to Peter, “Are you another of this man's disciples?” “I am not,” he said.

18As it was cold, the servants and the police had made a charcoal fire, and were standing round it warming themselves. Peter too was standing with them, sharing the warmth.

19The high priest questioned Jesus about his disciples and about his teaching.

20Jesus replied, “I have spoken openly for all the world to hear; I have always taught in synagogues or in the temple, where all Jews congregate; I have said nothing in secret.

21Why are you questioning me? Question those who heard me; they know what I said.”

22When he said this, one of the police standing near him struck him on the face. “Is that the way to answer the high priest?” he demanded.

23Jesus replied, “If I was wrong to speak what I did, produce evidence to prove it; if I was right, why strike me?”

24So Annas sent him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.

25Meanwhile, as Simon Peter stood warming himself, he was asked, “Are you another of his disciples?” But he denied it: “I am not,” he said.

26One of the high priest's servants, a relation of the man whose ear Peter had cut off, insisted, “Did I not see you with him in the garden?”

27Once again Peter denied it; and at that moment a cock crowed.

28FROM Caiaphas Jesus was led into the governor's headquarters. It was now early morning, and the Jews themselves stayed outside the headquarters to avoid defilement, so that they could eat the Passover meal.

29So Pilate came out to them and asked, “What charge do you bring against this man?”

30“If he were not a criminal”, they replied, “we would not have brought him before you.”

31Pilate said, “Take him yourselves and try him by your own law.” The Jews answered, “We are not allowed to put anyone to death.”

32Thus they ensured the fulfilment of the words by which Jesus had indicated the kind of death he was to die.

33Pilate then went back into his headquarters and summoned Jesus. “So you are the king of the Jews?” he said.

34Jesus replied, “Is that your own question, or have others suggested it to you?”

35“Am I a Jew?” said Pilate. “Your own nation and their chief priests have brought you before me. What have you done?”

36Jesus replied, “My kingdom does not belong to this world. If it did, my followers would be fighting to save me from the clutches of the Jews. My kingdom belongs elsewhere.”

37“You are a king, then?” said Pilate. Jesus answered, “‘King’ is your word. My task is to bear witness to the truth. For this I was born; for this I came into the world, and all who are not deaf to truth listen to my voice.”

38Pilate said, “What is truth?” With those words he went out again to the Jews and said, “For my part I find no case against him.

39But you have a custom that I release one prisoner for you at Passover. Would you like me to release the king of the Jews?”

40At this they shouted back: “Not him; we want Barabbas!” Barabbas was a bandit.
