Mark 15


Mark 15:1 Early in the morning the chief priests with the elders and scribes and the whole Council, immediately held a consultation; and binding Jesus, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate.
Mark 15:2 Pilate questioned Him," Are You the King of the Jews?" And He answered him," It is as you say."
Mark 15:3 The chief priests began to accuse Him harshly.
Mark 15:4 Then Pilate questioned Him again, saying," Do You not answer? See how many charges they bring against You!"
Mark 15:5 But Jesus made no further answer; so Pilate was amazed.
Mark 15:6 Now at the feast he used to release for them any one prisoner whom they requested.
Mark 15:7 The man named Barabbas had been imprisoned with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the insurrection.
Mark 15:8 The crowd went up and began asking him to do as he had been accustomed to do for them.
Mark 15:9 Pilate answered them, saying," Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?"
Mark 15:10 For he was aware that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
Mark 15:11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to ask him to release Barabbas for them instead.
Mark 15:12 Answering again, Pilate said to them," Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?"
Mark 15:13 They shouted back," Crucify Him!"
Mark 15:14 But Pilate said to them," Why, what evil has He done?" But they shouted all the more," Crucify Him!"
Mark 15:15 Wishing to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas for them, and after having Jesus scourged, he handed Him over to be crucified.

Mark 15:18 and they began to acclaim Him," Hail, King of the Jews!"
Mark 15:19 They kept beating His head with a reed, and spitting on Him, and kneeling and bowing before Him.
Mark 15:20 After they had mocked Him, they took the purple robe off Him and put His own garments on Him. And they led Him out to crucify Him.
Mark 15:21 They pressed into service a passer-by coming from the country, Simon of Cyrene (the father of Alexander and Rufus), to bear His cross.
Mark 15:22 Then they brought Him to the place Golgotha, which is translated, Place of a Skull.
Mark 15:23 They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh; but He did not take it.

Mark 15:27 They crucified two robbers with Him, one on His right and one on His left.
Mark 15:28 [ And the Scripture was fulfilled which says," And He was numbered with transgressors."]
Mark 15:29 Those passing by were hurling abuse at Him, wagging their heads, and saying," Ha! You who are going to destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days,
Mark 15:30 save Yourself, and come down from the cross!"
Mark 15:31 In the same way the chief priests also, along with the scribes, were mocking Him among themselves and saying," He saved others; He cannot save Himself.
Mark 15:32 Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!" Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him.
Mark 15:33 When the sixth hour came, darkness fell over the whole land until the ninth hour.
Mark 15:34 At the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice," Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" which is translated," My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?"
Mark 15:35 When some of the bystanders heard it, they began saying," Behold, He is calling for Elijah."
Mark 15:36 Someone ran and filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and gave Him a drink, saying," Let us see whether Elijah will come to take Him down."
Mark 15:37 And Jesus uttered a loud cry, and breathed His last.
Mark 15:38 And the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.
Mark 15:39 When the centurion, who was standing right in front of Him, saw the way He breathed His last, he said," Truly this man was the Son of God!"
Mark 15:40 There were also some women looking on from a distance, among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James the Less and Joses, and Salome.
Mark 15:41 When He was in Galilee, they used to follow Him and minister to Him; and there were many other women who came up with Him to Jerusalem.
Mark 15:42 When evening had already come, because it was the preparation day, that is, the day before the Sabbath,
Mark 15:43 Joseph of Arimathea came, a prominent member of the Council, who himself was waiting for the kingdom of God; and he gathered up courage and went in before Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus.
Mark 15:44 Pilate wondered if He was dead by this time, and summoning the centurion, he questioned him as to whether He was already dead.
Mark 15:45 And ascertaining this from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph.
Mark 15:46 Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb.
Mark 15:47 Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses were looking on to see where He was laid.
