1. And when they came near to Jerusalem, to Beth-phage and Bethany, at the Mountain of Olives, he sent two of his disciples,
2. And said to them, Go into the little town opposite: and when you come to it, you will see a young ass with a cord round his neck, on which no man has ever been seated; let him loose, and come back with him.
3. And if anyone says to you, Why are you doing this? say, The Lord has need of him and will send him back straight away.
4. And they went away and saw a young ass by the door outside in the open street; and they were getting him loose.
5. And some of those who were there said to them, What are you doing, taking the ass?
6. And they said to them the words which Jesus had said; and they let them go.
7. And they took the young ass to Jesus, and put their clothing on him, and he got on his back.
8. And a great number put down their clothing in the way; and others put down branches which they had taken from the fields.
9. And those who went in front, and those who came after, were crying, Glory: A blessing on him who comes in the name of the Lord:
10. A blessing on the coming kingdom of our father David: Glory in the highest.
11. And he went into Jerusalem into the Temple; and after looking round about on all things, it being now evening, he went out to Bethany with the twelve.
12. And on the day after, when they had come out from Bethany, he was in need of food.
13. And seeing a fig-tree in the distance with leaves, he went to see if by chance it had anything on it: and when he came to it, he saw nothing but leaves, for it was not the time for the fruit.
14. And he said to it, Let no man take fruit from you for ever. And his disciples took note of his words.
15. And they came to Jerusalem; and he went into the Temple, and sent out those who were trading there, overturning the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who were offering doves for money;
16. And he would not let any man take a vessel through the Temple.
17. And he gave them teaching, and said to them, Is it not in the Writings, My house is to be named a house of prayer for all the nations? but you have made it a hole of thieves.
18. And it came to the ears of the chief priests and scribes, and they took thought how they might put him to death; being in fear of him, because all the people were full of wonder at his teaching.
19. And every evening he went out of the town.
20. And when they were going by in the morning, they saw the fig-tree dead from the roots.
21. And Peter, having a memory of it, said to him, Master, see, the tree which was cursed by you is dead.
22. And Jesus, answering, said to them, Have God's faith.
23. Truly I say to you, Whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and be put into the sea; and has no doubt in his heart, but has faith that what he says will come about, he will have his desire.
24. For this reason I say to you, Whatever you make a request for in prayer, have faith that it has been given to you, and you will have it.
25. And whenever you make a prayer, let there be forgiveness in your hearts, if you have anything against anyone; so that you may have forgiveness for your sins from your Father who is in heaven.
27. And they came again to Jerusalem: and while he was walking in the Temple, there came to him the chief priests and the scribes and those in authority:
28. And they said to him, By what authority do you do these things? or who gave you authority to do these things?
29. And Jesus said to them, I will put to you one question; give me an answer, and I will say by what authority I do these things.
30. The baptism of John, was it from heaven or from men? give me an answer.
31. And they gave thought to it among themselves, saying, If we say, From heaven; he will say, Why then did you not have faith in him?
32. But if we say, From men--they were in fear of the people, because all took John to be truly a prophet.
1. And he gave them teaching in the form of stories. A man had a vine-garden planted, and put a wall about it, and made a place for crushing out the wine, and put up a tower, and let it out to field-workers, and went into another country.
2. And when the time came, he sent a servant to get from the workmen some of the fruit of the garden.
3. And they took him, and gave him blows, and sent him away with nothing.
4. And again he sent to them another servant; and they gave him wounds on the head, and were very cruel to him.
5. And he sent another; and they put him to death: and a number of others, whipping some, and putting some to death.
6. He still had one, a dearly loved son: he sent him last to them, saying, They will have respect for my son.
7. But those workmen said among themselves, This is he who will one day be the owner of the property; come, let us put him to death, and the heritage will be ours.
8. And they took him and put him to death, pushing his body out of the garden.
9. What then will the master of the garden do? He will come and put the workmen to death, and will give the garden into the hands of others.
10. Have you not seen this which is in the Writings: The stone which the builders put on one side, the same was made the chief stone of the building:
11. This was the Lord's doing, and it is a wonder in our eyes?
12. And they made attempts to take him; but they were in fear of the people, because they saw that the story was against them; and they went away from him.
13. Then they sent to him certain of the Pharisees and the Herodians, so that they might make use of his words to take him by a trick.
14. And when they had come, they said to him, Master, we are certain that you are true, and have no fear of anyone: you have no respect for a man's position, but you are teaching the true way of God: Is it right to give taxes to Caesar or not?
15. Are we to give or not to give? But he, conscious of their false hearts, said to them, Why do you put me to the test? give me a penny, so that I may see it.
16. And they gave him one. And he said to them, Whose is this image and name on it? And they said to him, Caesar's.
17. And Jesus said to them, Give to Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and to God the things which are God's. And they were full of wonder at him.
18. And there came to him Sadducees, who say there is no coming back from the dead; and they put a question to him, saying,
19. Master, in the law Moses says, If a man's brother comes to his end, and has a wife still living and no child, it is right for his brother to take his wife, and get a family for his brother.
20. There were seven brothers: and the first took a wife, and at his death there were no offspring;
21. And the second took her, and at his death there were no offspring; and the third the same:
22. And all the seven had no seed. Last of all the woman herself came to her death.
23. In the future life, when they come back from the dead, whose wife will she be? for the seven had her for a wife.
24. Jesus said to them, Is not this the reason for your error, that you have no knowledge of the holy Writings or of the power of God?
25. When they come back from the dead, they do not get married, but are like the angels in heaven.
26. But as to the dead coming back to life; have you not seen in the book of Moses, about the burning thorn-tree, how God said to him, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
27. He is not the God of the dead, but of the living: you are greatly in error.
28. And one of the scribes came, and hearing their argument together, and seeing that he had given them a good answer, put the question to him, Which law is the first of all?
30. And you are to have love for the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.
31. The second is this, Have love for your neighbour as for yourself. There is no other law greater than these.
32. And the scribe said to him, Truly, Master, you have well said that he is one, and there is no other but he:
33. And to have love for him with all the heart, and with all the mind, and with all the strength, and to have the same love for his neighbour as for himself, is much more than all forms of offerings.
34. And when Jesus saw that he gave a wise answer, he said to him, You are not far from the kingdom of God. And every man after that was in fear of questioning him any more.
35. And Jesus, when he was teaching in the Temple, said, How do the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David?
36. David himself said in the Holy Spirit, The Lord said to my Lord, Be seated at my right hand, till I put those who are against you under your feet.
37. David himself gives him the name of Lord; and how then is he his son? And the common people gave ear to him gladly.
38. And in his teaching he said, Be on your watch against the scribes, whose pleasure it is to go about in long robes and be respected in the market-places,
39. And to have the chief seats in the Synagogues and the first places at feasts;
40. Who take away the property of widows, and before the eyes of men make long prayers; these will be judged more hardly.
41. And he took a seat by the place where the money was kept, and saw how the people put money into the boxes: and a number who had wealth put in much.
42. And there came a poor widow, and she put in two little bits of money, which make a farthing.
43. And he made his disciples come to him, and said to them, Truly I say to you, This poor widow has put in more than all those who are putting money into the box:
44. Because they all put in something out of what they had no need for; but she out of her need put in all she had, even all her living.
1. And when he was going out of the Temple, one of his disciples said to him, Master, see, what stones and what buildings!
2. And Jesus said to him, Do you see these great buildings? there is not one stone here resting on another which will not be overturned.
3. And while he was seated on the Mountain of Olives opposite the Temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew said to him privately,
4. Say when these things will be, and what will be the sign when these things are all about to be done.
5. And Jesus said to them, Take care that you are not tricked by anyone.
6. People will come in my name, saying, I am he; and a number will be turned from the true way.
7. And when you have news of wars and talk of wars, do not be troubled; these things have to be, but it is still not the end.
8. Nation will go to war with nation, and kingdom with kingdom: there will be earth-shocks in different places; there will be times when there is no food; these things are the first of the troubles.
9. But take care: for they will give you up to the Sanhedrins; and in Synagogues you will be whipped; and you will be taken before rulers and kings because of me, for a sign to them.
10. And the good news has first to be given to all the nations.
11. And when you are taken and given up to be judged, do not be troubled about what to say: but whatever is given to you in that hour, say: because it is not you who say it, but the Holy Spirit.
12. And brother will give up brother to death, and the father his child; and children will go against their fathers and mothers, and put them to death.
13. And you will be hated by all men, because of my name; but he who goes through to the end will have salvation.
14. But when you see the unclean thing which makes destruction, in the place where it has no right to be (let this be clear to the reader), then let those who are in Judaea go quickly to the mountains:
15. And let him who is on the house-top not go down, or go in, to take anything out of his house:
16. And let not him who is in the field go back to take his coat.
17. And it will be hard for women who are with child and for her who has a baby at the breast in those days.
18. And say a prayer that it may not be in the winter.
19. For in those days there will be sorrow, such as there has not been from the time when God made the world till now, and will not ever be again.
20. And if the Lord had not made the time short, no flesh would have been kept from destruction; but because of the saints he has made the time short.
21. And then if any man says to you, See, here is Christ; or, See, there; have no faith in it:
22. Because there will be false Christs and false prophets, and they will give signs and wonders in the hope of turning even the saints from the true way.
23. But take care; see, I have made all things clear to you before the time.
24. But in those days, after that time of trouble, the sun will be made dark and the moon will not give her light,
25. And the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers which are in the heavens will be moved.
26. And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
27. And then he will send out the angels, and will get together his saints from the four winds, from the farthest part of the earth to the farthest part of heaven.
28. Take an example from the fig-tree: when its branches become soft and put out their leaves, you see that the summer is near;
29. Even so, when you see these things taking place, you may be certain that he is near, even at the doors.
30. Truly, I say to you, This generation will not come to an end till all these things are complete.
31. Heaven and earth will come to an end, but my words will not come to an end.
32. But of that day or that hour no one has knowledge, not even the angels in heaven, or the Son, but the Father.
33. Take care, keep watch with prayer: for you are not certain when the time will be.
34. It is as when a man who is in another country for a time, having gone away from his house, and given authority to his servants and to everyone his work, gives the porter an order to keep watch.
35. So you are to keep watch: because you are not certain when the master of the house is coming, in the evening, or in the middle of the night, or at the cock's cry, or in the morning;
36. For fear that, coming suddenly, he sees you sleeping.
37. And what I say to you, I say to all, Keep watch.
1. It was now two days before the feast of the Passover and the unleavened bread: and the chief priests and the scribes made designs how they might take him by deceit and put him to death:
2. But they said, Not while the feast is going on, for fear there may be trouble among the people.
3. And while he was in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, seated at table, there came a woman with a bottle of perfumed oil of great price; and when the bottle was broken she put the perfume on his head.
4. But some of them were angry among themselves, saying, For what purpose has this oil been wasted?
5. We might have got more than three hundred pence for it, and given the money to the poor. And they said things against her among themselves.
6. But Jesus said, Let her be; why are you troubling her? she has done a kind act to me.
7. The poor you have ever with you, and whenever you have the desire you may do them good: but me you have not for ever.
8. She has done what she was able: she has put oil on my body to make it ready for its last resting-place.
9. And truly I say to you, Wherever the good news goes out through all the earth, what this woman has done will be talked of in memory of her.
10. And Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went away to the chief priests, so that he might give him up to them.
11. And hearing what he said, they were glad, and gave him their word to make him a payment of money. And he took thought how he might best give him up to them.
12. And on the first day of unleavened bread, when the Passover lamb is put to death, his disciples said to him, Where are we to go and make ready for you to take the Passover meal?
13. And he sent two of his disciples, and said to them, Go into the town, and there will come to you a man with a vessel of water: go after him;
14. And wherever he goes in, say to the owner of the house, The Master says, Where is my guest-room, where I may take the Passover with my disciples?
15. And he will take you up himself to a great room with a table and seats: there make ready for us.
16. And the disciples went out and came into the town, and saw that it was as he had said: and they made ready the Passover.
17. And when it was evening he came with the twelve.
18. And while they were seated taking food, Jesus said, Truly I say to you, One of you will be false to me, one who is taking food with me.
19. They were sad, and said to him one by one, Is it I?
20. And he said to them, It is one of the twelve, one who is putting his bread with me into the same plate.
21. The Son of man goes, even as the Writings say of him: but cursed is that man through whom the Son of man is given up! It would have been well for that man if he had never been given birth.
22. And while they were taking food, he took bread, and after blessing it, he gave the broken bread to them, and said, Take it: this is my body.
23. And he took a cup, and when he had given praise, he gave it to them: and they all had a drink from it.
24. And he said to them, This is my blood of the testament, which is given for men.
25. Truly I say to you, I will take no more of the fruit of the vine till the day when I take it new in the kingdom of God.
26. And after a song of praise to God they went out to the Mountain of Olives.
27. And Jesus said to them, You will all be turned away from me: for it is in the Writings, I will put the keeper of the sheep to death, and the sheep will be put to flight.
28. But after I have come back from the dead, I will go before you into Galilee.
29. But Peter said to him, Though the others may be turned away from you, I will not.
30. And Jesus said to him, Truly, I say to you that you, today, even this night, before the cock's second cry, will say three times that you have no knowledge of me.
31. But he said with passion, If I have to be put to death with you, I will not be false to you. And they all said the same.
32. And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he said to his disciples, Be seated here while I say a prayer.
33. And he took with him Peter and James and John, and grief and great trouble came on him.
34. And he said to them, My soul is very sad, even to death: be here a little time, and keep watch.
35. And he went forward a little, and falling down on the earth, made request that, if possible, the hour might go from him.
36. And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible to you; take away this cup from me: but even so let not my pleasure, but yours be done.
37. And he came, and saw them sleeping, and said to Peter, Simon, are you sleeping? were you not able to keep watch one hour?
38. Keep watch with prayer, so that you may not be put to the test; the spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is feeble.
39. And again he went away, and said a prayer, using the same words.
40. And again he came and saw them sleeping, because their eyes were very tired; and they had nothing to say in answer.
41. And he came the third time, and said to them, Go on sleeping now and take your rest: it is enough; the hour has come; see, the Son of man is given up into the hands of evil men.
42. Get up, let us be going; see, he who gives me up is near.
43. And straight away, while he was still talking, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great band with swords and sticks, from the chief priests and the scribes and those in authority.
44. Now he who had been false to him had given them a sign, saying, The one to whom I give a kiss, that is he; take him, and get him away safely.
45. And when he had come, he went straight to him and said, Master; and gave him a kiss.
46. And they put their hands on him, and took him.
47. But a certain one of those who were near took out his sword, and gave the servant of the high priest a blow, cutting off his ear.
48. And Jesus said to them, Have you come out as against a thief, with swords and sticks to take me?
49. I was with you every day in the Temple teaching, and you did not take me; but this is done so that the Writings may come true.
50. And they all went away from him in fear.
51. And a certain young man went after him, with only a linen cloth about his body; and they put their hands on him;
52. But he got away unclothed, without the linen cloth.
53. And they took Jesus away to the high priest; and there came together with him all the chief priests and those in authority and the scribes.
54. And Peter had come after him at a distance, even into the house of the high priest; and he was seated with the captains, warming himself in the light of the fire.
55. Now the chief priests and all the Sanhedrin were looking for witness against Jesus so that they might put him to death; and they were unable to get any.
56. For a number gave false witness against him and their witness was not in agreement.
57. Then some got up and gave false witness against him, saying,
58. He said in our hearing, I will put an end to this Temple which is made with hands, and in three days I will make another without hands.
59. And even so their witness was not in agreement.
60. And the high priest got up in the middle of them, and said to Jesus, Do you say nothing in answer? what is it which these say against you?
61. But he kept quiet and said nothing. Again the high priest questioning him said, Are you the Christ, the son of the Holy One?
62. And Jesus said, I am: and you will see the Son of man seated at the right hand of power, and coming with the clouds of heaven.
63. And the high priest, violently parting his robes, said, What more need have we of witnesses?
64. His words against God have come to your ears: what is your opinion? And they all said it was right for him to be put to death.
65. And some put shame on him and, covering his face, gave him blows and said to him, Now say what is to come: and the captains took him and gave him blows with their hands.
66. And while Peter was down in the open square of the building, one of the servant-girls of the high priest came;
67. And seeing Peter warming himself by the fire, she gave him a look, and said, You were with this Nazarene, even Jesus.
68. But he said, I have no knowledge of him, or of what you are saying: and he went out into the doorway; and there came the cry of a cock.
69. And the girl saw him, and said again to those who were near, This is one of them.
70. But again he said it was not so. And after a little time, again those who were near said to Peter, Truly you are one of them; for you are a Galilaean.
71. But, with curses and oaths, he said, I have no knowledge of the man about whom you are talking.
72. And in the same minute, the cock gave a second cry. And it came to Peter's mind how Jesus had said to him, Before the cock's second cry, you will say three times that you have no knowledge of me. And at this thought he was overcome with weeping.
1. And the first thing in the morning the chief priests, with those in authority and the scribes and all the Sanhedrin, had a meeting, and put cords round Jesus, and took him away, and gave him up to Pilate.
2. And Pilate put a question to him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he, answering, said to him, You say so.
3. And the chief priests said a number of things against him.
4. And Pilate again put a question, Do you say nothing in answer? see how much evil they say you have done.
5. But Jesus gave no more answers, so that Pilate was full of wonder.
6. Now at the feast every year he let one prisoner go free at their request.
7. And there was one named Barabbas, in prison with those who had gone against the government and in the fight had taken life.
8. And the people went up, requesting him to do as he had done for them in other years.
9. And Pilate said in answer to them, Is it your desire that I let the King of the Jews go free?
10. For he saw that the chief priests had given him up through envy.
11. But the people were moved by the chief priests to make him let Barabbas go free.
12. And Pilate again said in answer to them, What then am I to do to him to whom you give the name of the King of the Jews?
13. And they said again loudly, To the cross with him!
14. And Pilate said to them, Why, what evil has he done? But their cry was the louder, To the cross!
15. And Pilate, desiring to do what was pleasing to the people, let Barabbas go free, and gave up Jesus, when he had been whipped, to be put to death on the cross.
16. And the men of the army took him away into the square in front of the building which is the Praetorium, and they got together all the band.
17. And they put a purple robe on him, and twisting a crown of thorns, they put it on him;
18. And, as if honouring him, they said, Long life to the King of the Jews!
19. And they gave him blows on the head with a stick and put shame on him and, going down on their knees, gave him worship.
20. And when they had made sport of him, they took the purple robe off him and put his clothing on him. And they took him out to put him to death on the cross.
21. And they made one, Simon of Cyrene, the father of Alexander and Rufus, who was going by, coming from the country, go with them, so that he might take his cross.
22. And they took him to the place named Golgotha, which is, Dead Man's Head.
23. And they gave him wine mixed with myrrh; but he did not take it.
24. And he was nailed to the cross; and they made a division of his clothing among them, putting to the decision of chance what everyone was to take.
25. And it was the third hour when they put him on the cross.
26. And the statement of his crime was put in writing on the cross, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
27. And they put two thieves on crosses with him, one on his right side, and one on his left.
29. And those who went by made sport of him, shaking their heads, and saying, Ha! you who give the Temple to destruction, and put it up again in three days,
30. Keep yourself from death, and come down from the cross.
31. In the same way the chief priests, laughing at him among themselves with the scribes, said, A saviour of others, he has no salvation for himself.
32. Let the Christ, the King of Israel, come down now from the cross, so that we may see and have belief. And those who were put on crosses with him said evil things against him.
33. And when the sixth hour had come, it was dark over all the land till the ninth hour.
34. And at the ninth hour, Jesus said in a loud voice, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, My God, my God, why are you turned away from me?
35. And some of those who were near, hearing it, said, See, he is crying to Elijah.
36. And one of them went quickly and, getting a sponge full of bitter wine, put it on a rod, and gave it to him for drink, saying, Let be; let us see if Elijah will come to take him down.
37. And Jesus gave a loud cry, and gave up his spirit.
38. And the curtain of the Temple was parted in two from end to end.
39. And when the captain, who was near, saw how he gave up his spirit, he said, Truly this man was a son of God.
40. And there were women watching from a distance: among them were Mary Magdalene, and Mary, the mother of James the less and of Joses, and Salome,
41. Who went with him when he was in Galilee and took care of him; and a number of other women who came up with him to Jerusalem.
42. And when it was evening, because it was the time of getting ready, that is, the day before the Sabbath,
43. There came Joseph of Arimathaea, a responsible man in high honour, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of God; and he went in to Pilate without fear, and made a request for the body of Jesus.
44. And Pilate was surprised that he was dead; and, sending for the captain, he put a question to see if he had been dead for long.
45. And when he had news of it from the captain, he let Joseph have the body.
46. And he got a linen cloth and, taking him down, put the linen cloth round him, and put him in a place for the dead which had been cut out of a rock; and a stone was rolled against the door.
47. And Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of Joses, saw where he was put.
