1 Then Pilatos scourged Jeshu.
2 And the soldiers entwined a crown of thorns, and set it on his head; and they covered him with robes of purple,
3 and said, Hail to thee, King of the Jihudoyee! and struck him upon his cheeks.
4 And Pilatos came again forth, and said to them, Behold, I bring him to you forth, that you may know that I find nothing against him, nor one cause (of death).
5 AND Jeshu came forth, having on him the crown of thorns and the robes of purple. And Pilatos said to them, Behold the man!
6 But when the chief priests and officials saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him! Pilatos saith to them, Take you him and crucify him; for I find in him no cause.
7 The Jihudoyee say to him, We have a law, and, according to our law, he is guilty of death, because he made himself the son of Aloha.
8 When Pilatos heard that word, he the more feared.
9 And he entered again the praetorium, and said to Jeshu, Whence art thou? But Jeshu gave him no answer.
10 Pilatos saith to him, With me speakest thou not? Knowest thou not that I have power to release thee, and power to crucify thee?
11 Jeshu saith to him, Thou against ME hast no power, no not any, unless it hath been given to thee from above: wherefore he who delivered me to thee hath a sin greater than thine.
12 On this account Pilatos willed to release him: but the Jihudoyee cried out, If this (man) thou releasest, thou art not the friend of Cesar: for whosoever maketh himself a king is the adversary of Cesar.
13 But when Pilatos heard that word, he brought Jeshu without, and sat down upon the tribunal in the place which is called the Pavement of Stones, but in Hebrew it is called Gaphiphtha.
14 And it was the preparation for the petscha. AND it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jihudoyee, Behold your king!
15 But they cried out, Take him away, take him away! crucify him, crucify him! Pilatos saith to them, Your king shall I crucify? The chief priests say to him, We have no king but Cesar.
16 Then delivered he him to them, that they might crucify him.
17 And they took Jeshu, and led him forth, bearing his cross to a place which is called A Skull, but in Hebrew is Gogultha:
18 there they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jeshu in the midst.
19 And a tablet also wrote Pilatos, and set it on the cross; and it was thus written, This is Jeshu Natsroya, King of the Jihudoyee.
20 And this title many of the Jihudoyee read; for nigh to the city was the place where Jeshu was crucified; and the writing was in Hebrew and Greek and Roman.
21 And the chief priests said to Pilatos, Do not write that he is king of the Jihudoyee, but that he said, I am the king of the Jihudoyee.
22 Pilatos saith, That which I have written, I have written.
23 BUT the soldiers, when they had crucified Jeshu, took his vestments and made four parts, a part unto each one of the soldiers: but his tunic was without seam, from the top woven all of it.
24 And they said one to another, Let us not rend it, but play for it by playing, (to decide) whose it shall be: and fulfilled was the scripture which had said,
25 They divided my garments among them, And upon my raiment did they cast the lot. These things did the soldiers. But there stood by the cross of Jeshu his mother, and the sister of his mother, and Mariam, she who was (the wife) of Cleopha, and Mariam Magdalitha.
26 Jeshu seeth his mother, and that disciple whom he loved, standing; and he said to his mother, Woman, behold thy son!
27 and he said to that disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple received her to be with him.
28 After these Jeshu knew that every thing would be accomplished, and, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said, I thirst.
29 And a vessel was set (there) filled with vinegar: then they filled a sponge from the vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and offered it to his mouth.
30 And when Jeshu had taken the vinegar, he said, Behold, it is finished! And he bowed his head, and delivered up his spirit.
31 THE Jihudoyee, because it was the preparation, said, Let not these bodies remain-all-night upon the cross, because the shabath has lighted: for a great day was the day of that shabath. And they besought of Pilatos that they should break the legs of those (who had been) crucified, and take them down.
32 And the soldiers came, and brake the legs of the first, and of that other who was crucified with him;
33 but when they came unto Jeshu, they saw that he was dead already, and they brake not his legs.
34 But one of the soldiers struck him in his side with the lance, and forthwith there came out blood and water.
35 And he who SAW testifieth, and the truth is his testimony; and he knoweth that the truth he hath said, that you also may believe.
36 For these things were done, that the scripture might be fulfilled, which said, that A bone shall not be broken in him.
37 And again another scripture which said, They shall look upon him whom they pierced.
38 After these Jauseph, he who was of Rometha, begged of Pilatos, for he was a disciple of Jeshu, but secretly for fear of the Jihudoyee, that he might take the body of Jeshu: and Pilatos permitted. And he came and took the body of Jeshu.
39 And Nikodimos also came, he who at first had come to Jeshu by night, and he brought with him a condiment of myrrh and aloes, as a hundred lithreen.
40 And they took the body of Jeshu, and wrapped it in cloths and in balsams, as is the manner of the Jihudoyee to bury.
41 Now in that place where Jeshu was crucified was a garden, and in the garden a new sepulchre where one yet had not been laid.
42 And they laid there Jeshu, because the shabath was coming in and the sepulchre was near.
