Then the whole assembly arose and led Jesus to Pilate. They began to accuse him, saying, “We found this man perverting * the ¦ our CTthe nation and forbidding us to pay taxes to Caesar, declaring himself to be Christ, a king.” So Pilate asked Jesus, “Are yoʋ the king of the Jews?” Jesus answered him, “Yoʋ have said it yoʋrself.” Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, “I find no fault in this man.” But they kept insisting, “He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea. He started from Galilee and has come even to this place.”
When Pilate heard mention of Galilee ¦ this CTmention of Galilee, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. And when he found out that Jesus was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him over to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem in those days. When Herod saw Jesus he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard many things ¦ — CTmany things about him and was hoping to see him perform some sign. So he questioned him at great length, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10 Meanwhile, the § chief priests and the scribes ¦ scribes and the chief priests ANTchief priests and the scribes stood there, vehemently accusing him. 11 Herod also treated him with contempt and mocked him, as did his soldiers. Then, after dressing Jesus in fine clothing, Herod sent him back to Pilate. 12 That very day * Pilate and Herod ¦ Herod and Pilate ANT CTPilate and Herod became friends with one another; before this they had been enemies.
13 Then Pilate called together the chief priests, the rulers, and the people, 14 and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was misleading the people. And behold, after examining him before you, I have found no fault in this man with respect to the accusations you are making against him, 15 and neither has Herod, for I sent you to him ¦ he sent him back to us CTI sent you to him. Clearly he has done nothing that deserves death. 16 Therefore I will have him flogged and then release him.”

What evil has he done? I have found in him § no grounds for ¦ nothing that deserves ANTno grounds for death.

26 As the soldiers led him away, they took hold of Simon, a Cyrenian man who was coming in from the countryside, and they laid on him the cross, forcing him to carry it behind Jesus. 27 A great multitude of people followed along behind, including women who were mourning and lamenting for Jesus. 28 But Jesus turned to them and said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming when people will say, ‘Blessed are the barren, the wombs that have not given birth, and the breasts that have not nursed ¦ given nourishment CTnursed!’ 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us!’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us!’ 31 For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
32 Now two others, who were criminals, were also being led away to be put to death with Jesus. 33 When they came to the place called the Skull, the soldiers crucified him there along with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. 34  § But Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” 89.3% ¦ — 1% [Note: NA and WH enclose this text with double brackets.]But Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” Then they cast lots to divide his garments. 35 The people stood there looking on, and the rulers * who were with them ¦ — CTwho were with them ridiculed him, saying, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ, the Chosen One of God ¦ Christ of God, the Chosen One CTChrist, the Chosen One of God.” 36 The soldiers also mocked him, coming up to him and offering him sour wine, 37 saying, “If yoʋ are the king of the Jews, save yoʋrself!” 38 There was also an inscription over him written in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew letters ¦ — CTwritten in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew letters, which read: “This is the King of the Jews.”

50 Now there was a good and righteous man named Joseph, who was a member of the council 51 but had not consented to their decision and action.
