And straightway, while he 43 yet spake, cometh Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders. Now he that betrayed him had 44 given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that is he; take him, and lead him away safely. And when he was 45 come, straightway he came to him, and saith, Rabbi; and 4 kissed him. And they laid 46 hands on him, and took him. But a certain one of them 47 that stood by drew his sword, and smote the 5 servant of the high priest, and struck off his ear. And Jesus answered and 48 said unto them, Are ye come out, as against a robber, with swords and staves to seize me? I was daily with you in the 49 temple teaching, and ye took me not: but this is done that the scriptures might be fulfilled. And they all left him, 50 and fled.

And a certain young man 51 followed with him, having a linen cloth cast about him, over his naked body: and they lay hold on him; but 52 he left the linen cloth, and fled naked.

And they led Jesus away to 53 the high priest: and there come together with him all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes. And Peter 54 had followed him afar off, even within, into the court of the high priest; and he was sitting with the officers, and warming

himself in the light of the fire.

And straightway in the 15 morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes, and the whole council, held a consultation, and bound Jesus, and carried him away, and delivered him up to Pilate. And Pilate asked him, 2 Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answering saith unto him, Thou sayest. And 3 the chief priests accused him of many things. And Pilate 4 again asked him, saying, Answerest thou nothing? behold how many things they accuse thee of. But Jesus no more 5 answered anything; insomuch that Pilate marvelled.

And the soldiers led him away within the court, which is the 1 Prætorium; and they call together the whole 2 band. 17 And they clothe him with purple, and plaiting a crown of thorns, they put it on him; 18 and they began to salute him,

42 And when even was now come, because it was the Preparation, that is, the day before 43 the sabbath, there came Joseph of Arimathæa, a councillor of honourable estate, who also himself was looking for the kingdom of God; and he boldly went in unto Pilate, and asked 44 for the body of Jesus. And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto 2 The two him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been 45 any while dead. And when he learned it of the centurion, he granted the corpse to Jo46 seph. And he bought a linen cloth, and taking him down, wound him in the linen cloth, and laid him in a tomb which had been hewn out of a rock; and he rolled a stone against 47 the door of the tomb. And Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses beheld where he was laid.

which hath been crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold, the place where they laid him! But go, tell his 7 disciples and Peter, He goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. And they went out, 8 and fled from the tomb; for trembling and astonishment had come upon them; and they said nothing to any one; for they were afraid.

2 Now when he was risen 9 early on the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, from whom he had cast out seven 3 devils. She went and told them that 10 had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, 11 when they heard that he was alive, and had been seen of her, disbelieved.

And after these things he 12 was manifested in another form unto two of them, as they walked, on their way into the country. And they 13 went away and told it unto the rest: neither believed they them.

And afterward he was mani- 14 fested unto the eleven themselves as they sat at meat; and he upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. And he 15 said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to the whole creation. He that believeth and is bap- 16 tized shall be saved; but he that disbelieveth shall be condemned. And these signs shall 17 follow them that believe: in my name shall they cast out 3 devils; they shall speak wit 4 new tongues; they shall


up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall in no wise hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

confirming the word by the
