14:50. Then his disciples, leaving him, all fled away.
14:51. And a certain young man followed him, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body. And they laid hold on him.
14:52. But he, casting off the linen cloth, fled from them naked.
14:53. And they brought Jesus to the high priest. And all the priests and the scribes and the ancients assembled together.
14:54. And Peter followed him afar off, even into the court of the high priest. And he sat with the servants at the fire and warmed himself.
14:55. And the chief priests and all the council sought for evidence against Jesus, that they might put him to death: and found none.
14:56. For many bore false witness against him: and their evidences were not agreeing.
14:57. And some rising up, bore false witness against him, saying:
14:58. We heard him say, I Will destroy this temple made with hands and within three days I will build another not made with hands.
14:59. And their witness did not agree.
14:60. And the high priest rising up in the midst, asked Jesus, saying: Answerest thou nothing to the things that are laid to thy charge by these men?
14:61. But he held his peace and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him and said to him: Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed God?
14:62. And Jesus said to him: I am. And you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of the power of God and coming with the clouds of heaven.
14:63. Then the high priest rending his garments, saith: What need we any further witnesses?
14:64. You have heard the blasphemy. What think you? Who all condemned him to be guilty of death.
14:65. And some began to spit on him and to cover his face and to buffet him and to say unto him: Prophesy. And the servants struck him with the palms their hands.
14:66. Now when Peter was in the court below, there cometh one of the maidservants of the high priest.
14:67. And when she had seen Peter warming himself looking on him, she saith: Thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth.
14:68. But he denied, saying: I neither know nor understand what thou sayest. And he went forth before the court; and the cock crew.
14:69. And again a maidservant seeing him, began to say to the standers by: This is one of them.
14:70. But he denied again. And after a, while they that stood by said again to Peter: Surely thou art one of them; for thou art also a Galilean.
14:71. But he began o curse and to swear, saying: I know not this man of whom you speak.
14:72. And immediately the cock crew again. And Peter remembered the word that Jesus had said unto him: Before the cock crow twice, thou shalt thrice deny me. And he began to weep,
Mark Chapter 15
The continuation of the history of the passion.
15:1. And straightway in the morning, the chief priests holding a consultation with the ancients and the scribes and the whole council, binding Jesus, led him away and delivered him to Pilate.
15:2. And Pilate asked him: Art thou the king of the Jews? But he answering, saith to him: Thou sayest it.
15:3. And the chief priests accused him in many things.
15:4. And Pilate again asked him, saying: Answerest thou nothing?
Behold in how many things they accuse thee.
15:5. But Jesus still answered nothing: so that Pilate wondered.
15:6. Now on the festival day he was wont to release unto them one of the prisoners, whomsoever they demanded.
15:7. And there was one called Barabbas, who was put in prison with some seditious men, who in the sedition had committed murder.
15:8. And when the multitude was come up, they began to desire that he would do as he had ever done unto them.
15:9. And Pilate answered them and said: Will you that I release to you the king of the Jews?
15:10. For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him up out of envy.
15:11. But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
15:12. And Pilate again answering, saith to them: What will you then that I do to the king of the Jews?
15:13. But they again cried out: Crucify him.
15:14. And Pilate saith to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more: Crucify him.
15:15. And so Pilate being willing to satisfy the people, released to them Barabbas: and delivered up Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
15:16. And the soldiers led him away into the court of the palace: and they called together the whole band.
15:17. And they clothed him with purple: and, platting a crown of thorns, they put it upon him.
15:18. And they began to salute him: Hail, king of the Jews.
15:19. And they struck his head with a reed: and they did spit on him.
And bowing their knees, they adored him.
15:20. And after they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him and put his own garments on him: and they led him out to crucify him.
15:21. And they forced one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to take up his cross.
15:22. And they bring him into the place called Golgotha, which being interpreted is, The place of Calvary.
15:23. And they gave him to drink wine mingled with myrrh. But he took it not.
15:24. And crucifying him, they divided his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.
