Gospel for Good Friday.


Then 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 m him. 5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple rob?. And Pilate saith unto them, Hehold the man ! 6 "When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saifcb unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him : for I find no fault m him. 7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our law he onglit to die, because, he made himself the Son of God. 8 When Pilate therefore heard that say- i ing, 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 Pxlate onto him, Speakest thou not unto me ? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee ? 11 Jesus answered, Thou oouldest 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 Caesar's friend, whosoever maketh a king speaketh against Caesar. $13 When Pilafe therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down m the judgment seat m a place that is called the Pavement, but m the Hebrew, Qabbatha. 14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King ! 15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him. Crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The ohief priests answered, We have no king but Csesar. 16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be crucified. And they took Jesua and led him away. 17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called m the Hebrew Golgotha : 18 Where they crucified him, and two others with him, on either side one, and Jesus m 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. 20 This title then read many oE the Jews: for the place where Jesus wes crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written m 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 Jew 3. 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 part?, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without Ream, woven from the top throughout. 21 They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose its shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. 25 Now there stood by the cross of Jesus hi 3 mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene 26 When Jesus therefore saw h s mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he eaith unto his mother, Woman behold thy son. 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 spunge 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 th ghost. B 31 The Jews therefore, because ifc was the pieparation, that the bodies shonld no {-, remain upon the cross on the Sabbath day> (for that Sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their lega might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Then came the soldiers, and brake the legs of the first, and of the other whioh 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 there out blood and water. 35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe. 36 For these things were done, that the scripture Bhould 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 Arimathroa being a deciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews, besought Pilate that h might take away the body of Jesus: ande Pilate gave him leave. Ho 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, abj out an hundred pound weight. 40 Then took they the body of Jesus, and wound it m linen clothes with the spices as the manner of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now m the place where he wa3 crucified there was a garden, and m the garden a new sepulchre, wherein was never man yet laid, 42 There laid they Jesus therefore boranse of the Jews' preparation day, for the sepulchre was nigh at hand. 40
