28. And when he had said this, he went on in front of them, going up to Jerusalem.

29. And it came about that when he got near Beth-phage and Bethany by the mountain which is named the Mountain of Olives, he sent two of the disciples,

30. Saying, Go into the little town in front of you, and on going in you will see a young ass fixed with a cord, on which no man has ever been seated; let him loose and take him.

31. And if anyone says to you, Why are you taking him? say, The Lord has need of him.

32. And those whom he sent went away, and it was as he said.

33. And when they were getting the young ass, the owners of it said to them, Why are you taking the young ass?

34. And they said, The Lord has need of him.

35. And they took him to Jesus, and they put their clothing on the ass, and Jesus got on to him.

36. And while he went on his way they put their clothing down on the road in front of him.

37. And when he came near the foot of the Mountain of Olives, all the disciples with loud voices gave praise to God with joy, because of all the great works which they had seen;

38. Saying, A blessing on the King who comes in the name of the Lord; peace in heaven and glory in the highest.

39. And some of the Pharisees among the people said to him, Master, make your disciples be quiet.

40. And he said in answer, I say to you, if these men keep quiet, the very stones will be crying out.

41. And when he got near and saw the town, he was overcome with weeping for it,

42. Saying, If you, even you, had knowledge today, of the things which give peace! but you are not able to see them.

43. For the time will come when your attackers will put a wall round you, and come all round you and keep you in on every side,

44. And will make you level with the earth, and your children with you; and there will not be one stone resting on another in you, because you did not see that it was your day of mercy.

45. And he went into the Temple and put out those who were trading there,

46. Saying to them, It has been said, My house is to be a house of prayer, but you have made it a hole of thieves.

47. And every day he was teaching in the Temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the rulers of the people were attempting to put him to death;

48. But they were not able to do anything, because the people all kept near him, being greatly interested in his words.

1. And it came about on one of those days, when he was teaching the people in the Temple and preaching the good news,

2. That the chief priests and the scribes and the rulers of the people came to him and said, Make clear to us by what authority you do these things and who gave you this authority.

3. And in answer he said to them, I will put a question to you, and do you give me an answer:

4. The baptism of John, was it from heaven or of men?

5. And they said among themselves, If we say, From heaven; he will say, Why did you not have faith in him?

6. But if we say, Of men; we will be stoned by the people, for they are certain that John was a prophet.

7. And they made answer that they had no idea where it came from.

8. And Jesus said, And I will not make clear to you by what authority I do these things.

9. And he gave the people this story: A man made a vine-garden and gave the use of it to some field-workers and went into another country for a long time.

10. And at the right time he sent a servant to the workers to get part of the fruit from the vines; but the workmen gave him blows and sent him away with nothing.

11. And he sent another servant, and they gave blows to him in the same way, and put shame on him, and sent him away with nothing.

12. And he sent a third, and they gave him wounds and put him out.

13. And the lord of the garden said, What am I to do? I will send my dearly loved son; they may give respect to him.

14. But when the workmen saw him, they said to one another, This is he who will one day be the owner of the property: let us put him to death and the heritage will be ours.

15. And driving him out of the garden they put him to death. Now what will the lord do to these workmen?

16. He will come and put them to destruction and give the garden to others. And when he said this, they said, May it not be so.

17. But he, looking on them, said, Is it not in the Writings, The stone which the builders put on one side, the same has become the chief stone of the building?

18. Everyone falling on that stone will be broken, but the man on whom the stone comes down will be crushed to dust.

19. And the chief priests and the scribes made attempts to get their hands on him in that very hour; and they were in fear of the people, for they saw that he had made up this story against them.

20. And they kept watch on him, and sent out secret representatives, who were acting the part of good men, in order that they might get something from his words, on account of which they might give him up to the government and into the power of the ruler.

21. And they put a question to him, saying, Master, we are certain that your teaching and your words are right, and that you have no respect for a man's position, but you are teaching the true way of God:

22. Is it right for us to make payment of taxes to Caesar or not?

23. But he saw through their trick and said to them,

24. Let me see a penny. Whose image and name are on it? And they said, Caesar's.

25. And he said, Then give to Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and to God the things which are God's.

26. And they were not able to get anything from these words before the people: but they were full of wonder at his answer, and said nothing.

27. And some of the Sadducees came to him, who say that there is no coming back from the dead; and they said to him,

28. Master, Moses said that if a man's brother comes to his end, having a wife, but no children, his brother is to take the wife, and get a family for his brother.

29. Now there were seven brothers, and the first had a wife and came to his end, having no children;

30. And the second;

31. And the third took her; and in the same way, all the seven, without having any children, came to their end.

32. And last of all, the woman came to her end.

33. When they come back from the dead, whose wife will she be? for all the seven had her.

34. And Jesus said to them, The sons of this world are married and have wives;

35. But those to whom is given the reward of the world to come, and to come back from the dead, have no wives, and are not married;

36. And death has no more power over them, for they are equal to the angels, and are sons of God, being of those who will come back from the dead.

37. But even Moses made it clear that the dead come back to life, saying, in the story of the burning thorn-tree, The Lord, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.

38. Now he is not the God of the dead but of the living: for all men are living to him.

39. And some of the scribes, in answer to this, said, Master, you have said well.

40. And they had fear of putting any more questions to him.

41. And he said to them, Why do they say that the Christ is the son of David?

42. For David himself says in the book of Psalms, The Lord said to my Lord, Take your seat at my right hand,

43. Till I put under your feet all those who are against you.

44. David then gives him the name of Lord, so how is it possible for him to be his son?

45. And in the hearing of all the people he said to his disciples,

46. Keep away from the scribes, whose pleasure it is to go about in long robes, and to have words of respect said to them in the market-places, and to take the chief seats in the Synagogues and the first places at feasts;

47. Who take the property of widows and before the eyes of men make long prayers; they will get a greater punishment.

1. And looking up, he saw the men of wealth putting their offerings in the money-box.

2. And he saw a certain poor widow putting in a farthing.

3. And he said, Truly I say to you, This poor widow has given more than all of them:

4. For they gave out of their wealth, having more than enough for themselves: but she, even out of her need, has put in all her living.

5. And some were talking about the Temple, how it was made fair with beautiful stones and with offerings, but he said,

6. As for these things which you see, the days will come when not one stone will be resting on another, but all will be broken down.

7. And they said to him, Master, when will these things be? and what sign will there be when these events are to take place?

8. And he said, Take care that you are not tricked: for a number of people will come in my name, saying, I am he; and, The time is near: do not go after them.

9. And when news of wars and troubled times comes to your ears, have no fear; for these things have to be, but the end will not be now.

10. Then he said to them, Nation will be moved against nation and kingdom against kingdom:

11. There will be great earth-shocks and outbursts of disease in a number of places, and men will be without food; and there will be wonders and great signs from heaven.

12. But before all this, they will take you and be very cruel to you, giving you up to the Synagogues and to prisons, taking you before kings and rulers, because of my name.

13. And it will be turned to a witness for you.

14. So take care not to be troubled before the time comes, about what answers you will give:

15. For I will give you words and wisdom, so that not one of those who are against you will be able to get the better of you, or to put you in the wrong.

16. But you will be given up even by your fathers and mothers, your brothers and relations and friends; and some of you will be put to death.

17. And you will be hated by all men, because of me.

18. But not a hair of your head will come to destruction.

19. By going through all these things, you will keep your lives.

20. But when you see armies all round about Jerusalem, then be certain that her destruction is near.

21. Then let those who are in Judaea go in flight to the mountains; and those who are in the middle of the town go out; and let not those who are in the country come in.

22. For these are the days of punishment, in which all the things in the Writings will be put into effect.

23. It will be hard for women who are with child, and for her with a baby at the breast, in those days. For great trouble will come on the land, and wrath on this people.

24. And they will be put to death with the sword, and will be taken as prisoners into all the nations; and Jerusalem will be crushed under the feet of the Gentiles, till the times of the Gentiles are complete.

25. And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and on the earth, fear among the nations and doubt because of the loud noise of the sea and the waves;

26. Men's strength will go from them in fear and in waiting for the things which are coming on the earth; for the powers of the heavens will be moved.

27. And then they will see the Son of man coming in a cloud, with power and great glory.

28. But when these things come about, let your heads be lifted up, because your salvation is near.

29. And he made a story for them: See the fig-tree, and all the trees;

30. When they put out their young leaves, you take note of it, and it is clear to you that summer is coming.

31. In the same way, when you see these things taking place you may be certain that the kingdom of God is near.

32. Truly I say to you, This generation will not come to an end till all things are complete.

33. Heaven and earth will come to an end, but my words will not come to an end.

34. But give attention to yourselves, for fear that your hearts become over-full of the pleasures of food and wine, and the cares of this life, and that day may come on you suddenly, and take you as in a net:

35. For so it will come on all those who are living on the face of all the earth.

36. But keep watch at all times with prayer, that you may be strong enough to come through all these things and take your place before the Son of man.

37. And every day he was teaching in the Temple and every night he went out to the mountain which is named the Mountain of Olives to take his rest.

38. And all the people came early in the morning to give ear to his words in the Temple.

1. Now the feast of unleavened bread was near, which is called the Passover.

2. And the chief priests and the scribes were looking for a chance to put him to death, but they went in fear of the people.

3. And Satan came into Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve.

4. And he went away and had a discussion with the chief priests and the rulers, about how he might give him up to them.

5. And they were glad, and undertook to give him money.

6. And he made an agreement with them to give him up to them, if he got a chance, when the people were not present.

7. And the day of unleavened bread came, when the Passover lamb is put to death.

8. And Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, Go and make the Passover ready for us, so that we may take it.

9. And they said to him, Where are we to get it ready?

10. And he said to them, When you go into the town you will see a man coming to you with a vessel of water; go after him into the house into which he goes.

11. And say to the master of the house, The Master says, Where is the guest-room, where I may take the Passover with my disciples?

12. And he will take you up to a great room with a table and seats: there make ready.

13. And they went, and it was as he had said: and they made the Passover ready.

14. And when the time had come, he took his seat, and the Apostles with him.

15. And he said, I have had a great desire to keep this Passover with you before I come to my death;

16. For I say to you, I will not take it till it is made complete in the kingdom of God.

17. And he took a cup and, having given praise, he said, Make division of this among yourselves;

18. For I say to you, I will not take of the fruit of the vine till the kingdom of God has come.

19. And he took bread and, having given praise, he gave it to them when it had been broken, saying, This is my body, which is given for you: do this in memory of me.

20. And in the same way, after the meal, he took the cup, saying, This cup is the new testament, made with my blood which is given for you.

21. But the hand of him who is false to me is with me at the table.

22. For it will be done to the Son of man after the purpose of God, but unhappy is that man by whom he is given up.

23. And they were wondering among themselves which of them it was who would do this thing.

24. And there was an argument among them about which of them was the greatest.

25. And he said, The kings of the Gentiles are lords over them, and those who have authority are given names of honour.

26. But let it not be so with you; but he who is greater, let him become like the younger; and he who is chief, like a servant.

27. For which is greater, the guest who is seated at a meal or the servant who is waiting on him? is it not the guest? but I am among you as a servant.

28. But you are those who have kept with me through my troubles;

29. And I will give you a kingdom as my Father has given one to me,

30. So that you may take food and drink at my table in my kingdom, and be seated like kings, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

31. Simon, Simon, Satan has made a request to have you, so that he may put you to the test as grain is tested:

32. But I have made prayer for you, that your faith may not go from you: and when you are turned again, make your brothers strong.

33. And he said to him, Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.

34. And he said, I say to you, Peter, before the cock's second cry today, you will say three times that you have no knowledge of me.

35. And he said to them, When I sent you out without money or bag or shoes, were you in need of anything? And they said, Nothing.

36. And he said to them, But now, he who has a money-bag, or a bag for food, let him take it: and he who has not, let him give his coat for money and get a sword.

37. For I say to you that these words will be put into effect in me, And he was numbered among the evil-doers: for what has been said in the Writings about me has an end.

38. And they said, Lord, here are two swords. And he said, It is enough.

39. And he came out, and went, as his way was, to the Mountain of Olives, and the disciples went with him.

40. And when he came to the place, he said to them, Make a prayer that you may not be put to the test.

41. And he went a little distance away from them and, falling on his knees in prayer, he said,

42. Father, if it is your pleasure, take this cup from me: but still, let your pleasure, not mine, be done.

43. And an angel from heaven came to him, to give him strength.

44. And being in great trouble of soul, the force of his prayer became stronger, and great drops, like blood, came from him, falling to the earth.

45. And, getting up from prayer, he came to the disciples, and saw that they were sleeping for sorrow.

46. And he said, Why are you sleeping? Get up, and give yourselves to prayer, so that you may not be put to the test.

47. And while he was saying these words, there came a band of people, and Judas, one of the twelve, was in front of them, and he came near to Jesus to give him a kiss.

48. But Jesus said to him, Judas, will you be false to the Son of man with a kiss?

49. And when those who were with him saw what was coming, they said, Lord, may we not make use of our swords?

50. And one of them gave a blow to the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear.

51. But Jesus, answering, said, Put up with this, at least. And touching his ear, he made it well.

52. And Jesus said to the chief priests and the captains of the Temple and the rulers, who had come against him, Have you come out as against a thief, with swords and sticks?

53. When I was in the Temple with you every day, your hands were not stretched out against me: but this is your hour, and the authority of the dark power.

54. And they made him a prisoner and took him away to the house of the high priest. But Peter went after them at a distance.

55. And a fire was lighted in the middle of the open square, and they were seated together, and Peter was among them.

56. And a certain woman-servant, seeing him in the light of the fire, and looking at him with attention, said, This man was with him.

57. But he said, Woman, it is not true; I have no knowledge of him.

58. And after a little time, another saw him and said, You are one of them; and he said, Man, I am not.

59. And after about an hour, another man said, with decision, Certainly this man was with him, for he is a Galilaean.

60. And Peter said, Man, I have no knowledge of these things of which you are talking. And straight away, while he was saying these words, there came the cry of a cock.

61. And the Lord, turning, gave Peter a look. And the words of the Lord came to Peter's mind, how he had said, This night, before the hour of the cock's cry, you will be false to me three times.

62. And he went out, weeping bitterly.

63. And the men in whose hands Jesus was, made sport of him and gave him blows.

64. And, covering his eyes, they said to him, Are you prophet enough to say who gave you that blow?

65. And they said a number of other evil things against him.

66. And when it was day, the rulers of the people came together, with the chief priests and the scribes, and they took him before their Sanhedrin, saying,

67. If you are the Christ, say so. But he said, If I say so you will not have belief;

68. And if I put a question to you, you will not give an answer.

69. But in the future the Son of man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God.

70. And they all said, Are you then the Son of God? and he said, You say that I am.

71. And they said, What more need have we of witness? we have the very words of his mouth.

1. And they all went and took him before Pilate.

2. And they made statements against him, saying, This man has to our knowledge been teaching our nation to do wrong, and not to make payment of taxes to Caesar, even saying that he himself is Christ, a king.

3. And Pilate said to him, Are you the King of the Jews? And he said in answer, You say so.

4. And Pilate said to the chief priests and the people, In my opinion this man has done no wrong.

5. But they became more violent than before, saying, He has made trouble among the people, teaching through all Judaea from Galilee to this place.

6. But at these words Pilate said, Is the man a Galilaean?

7. And when he saw that he was under the authority of Herod, he sent him to Herod, who was in Jerusalem himself at that time.

8. Now when Herod saw Jesus he was very glad, having for a long time had a desire to see him, for he had had accounts of him, and was hoping to see some wonders done by him.

9. And he put a great number of questions to him, but he said nothing.

10. And the chief priests and the scribes were there, making statements against him violently.

11. And Herod, with the men of his army, put shame on him and made sport of him, and dressing him in shining robes, he sent him back to Pilate.

12. And that day Herod and Pilate became friends with one another, for before they had been against one another.

13. And Pilate sent for the chief priests and the rulers and the people, and said to them,

14. You say that this man has been teaching the people evil things: now I, after going into the question before you, see nothing wrong in this man in connection with the things which you have said against him:

15. And Herod is of the same opinion, for he has sent him back to us; for, you see, he has done nothing for which I might put him to death.

16. And so I will give him punishment and let him go.

17. []

18. But with loud voices they said all together, Put this man to death, and make Barabbas free.

19. Now this man was in prison because of an attack against the government in the town, in which there had been loss of life.

20. And Pilate again said to them that it was his desire to let Jesus go free.

21. But crying out they said, To the cross with him!

22. And he said to them a third time, Why, what evil has he done? I see no reason for putting him to death: I will give him punishment and let him go.

23. But they went on crying out loudly, Let him be put to death on the cross. And they had their way.

24. And Pilate gave his decision for their desire to be put into effect.

25. And in answer to their request, he let that man go free who had been in prison for acting against the government and causing death, and Jesus he gave up to their pleasure.

26. And while they were taking him away, they put their hands on Simon of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, and made him take the cross after Jesus.

27. And a great band of people went after him, and of women making signs of grief and weeping for him.

28. But Jesus, turning to them, said, Daughters of Jerusalem, let not your weeping be for me, but for yourselves and for your children.

29. For the days are coming in which they will say, Happy are those who have had no children, whose bodies have never given birth, whose breasts have never given milk.

30. And they will say to the mountains, Come down on us, and to the hills, Be a cover over us.

31. For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will they do when it is dry?

32. And two others, evil-doers, were taken with him to be put to death.

33. And when they came to the place which is named Golgotha, they put him on the cross, and the evil-doers, one on the right side, and the other on the left.

34. And Jesus said, Father, let them have forgiveness, for they have no knowledge of what they are doing. And they made division of his clothing among them by the decision of chance.

35. And the people were looking on. And the rulers made sport of him, saying, He was a saviour of others; let him do something for himself, if he is the Christ, the man of God's selection.

36. And the men of the army made sport of him, coming to him and giving him bitter wine,

37. And saying, If you are the King of the Jews, get yourself free.

38. And these words were put in writing over him, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

39. And one of the evil-doers on the cross, with bitter feeling, said to him, Are you not the Christ? Get yourself and us out of this.

40. But the other, protesting, said, Have you no fear of God? for you have a part in the same punishment,

41. And with reason; for we have the right reward of our acts, but this man has done nothing wrong.

42. And he said, Jesus, keep me in mind when you come in your kingdom.

43. And he said to him, Truly I say to you, Today you will be with me in Paradise.

44. And it was now about the sixth hour; and all the land was dark till the ninth hour;

45. The light of the sun went out, and the curtain in the Temple was parted in two.

46. And Jesus gave a loud cry and said, Father, into your hands I give my spirit: and when he had said this, he gave up his spirit.

47. And when the captain saw what was done, he gave praise to God, saying, Without doubt this was an upright man.

48. And all the people who had come together to see it, when they saw the things which were done, went back again making signs of grief.

49. And all his friends and the women who came with him from Galilee, were waiting at a distance, watching these things.

50. Now there was a man named Joseph, a man of authority and a good and upright man

51. (He had not given his approval to their decision or their acts), of Arimathaea, a town of the Jews, who was waiting for the kingdom of God:

52. This man went to Pilate and made a request for the body of Jesus.

53. And he took it down, and folding it in a linen cloth, he put it in a place cut in the rock for a dead body; and no one had ever been put in it.

54. Now it was the day of making ready and the Sabbath was coming on.

55. And the women who had come with him from Galilee went after him and saw the place and how his body had been put to rest;

56. And they went back and got ready spices and perfumes; and on the Sabbath they took their rest, in agreement with the law.
