23:7 And when he knew that he was of Herod`s jurisdiction, he sent him unto Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in these days.
23:9 And he questioned him in many words; but he answered him nothing.
23:10 And the chief priests and the scribes stood, vehemently accusing him.
23:11 And Herod with his soldiers set him at nought, and mocked him, and arraying him in gorgeous apparel sent him back to Pilate.
23:12 And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day: for before they were at enmity between themselves.

23:14 and said unto them, Ye brought unto me this man, as one that perverteth the people: and behold, I having examined him before you, found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him:
23:15 no, nor yet Herod: for he sent him back unto us; and behold, nothing worthy of death hath been done by him.
23:16 I will therefore chastise him, and release him.
23:17 [Now he must needs release unto them at the feast one prisoner.]
23:18 But they cried out all together, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: --
23:19 one who for a certain insurrection made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.
23:20 And Pilate spake unto them again, desiring to release Jesus;
23:21 but they shouted, saying, Crucify, crucify him.
23:23 But they were urgent with loud voices, asking that he might be crucified. And their voices prevailed.
23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that what they asked for should be done.
23:25 And he released him that for insurrection and murder had been cast into prison, whom they asked for; but Jesus he delivered up to their will.
23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

23:32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death.
23:34 And Jesus said, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And parting his garments among them, they cast lots.
23:36 And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, offering him vinegar,
23:37 and saying, If thou art the King of the Jews, save thyself.
23:38 And there was also a superscription over him, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
23:39 And one of the malefactors that were hanged railed on him, saying, Art not thou the Christ? save thyself and us.
23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
23:42 And he said, Jesus, remember me when thou comest in thy kingdom.
23:43 And he said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To-day shalt thou be with me in Paradise.

23:48 And all the multitudes that came together to this sight, when they beheld the things that were done, returned smiting their breasts.
23:50 And behold, a man named Joseph, who was a councillor, a good and righteous man
23:51 (he had not consented to their counsel and deed), [a man] of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews, who was looking for the kingdom of God:
23:52 this man went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
23:53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb that was hewn in stone, where never man had yet lain.
23:54 And it was the day of the Preparation, and the sabbath drew on.
