heard him say: I will destroy this temple made with hands, and in three days I will build another not made with hands. C. And their evidence did not agree. And the high priest rising up in the midst of them, asked Jesus, saying: S. Dort thou not answer any thing to what is alledged against thee by these people ? C. But he was filent, and answered nothing. The high priest asked him again, and said to him: S. Art thou the Christ, the Son of the blessed God? C. And Jefus faid to him : .+ I am. And you shall see the Son of Man sitting at the · right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven. C. And the high prieft tearing his garments, faid: S. What farther want have we of witnesses? You have heard his blasphemy: what do you think of it? C. And they all declared him guilty of death. And some began to spit on him, and to hoodwink him, and to strike him with their fifts, and to say to him: S. Prophesy. C. And the servants buffeted him. And when Peter was in the court below, there came one of the high priest's maids; and when she had seen Peter warming him, she faith, looking at him: S. Thou also waft with Jesus of Nazareth. C. But he denied it, saying: S. I neither know, nor understand what thou sayest. C. And he went out before the courtdoor, and the cock crew. And again, when the maid saw him, the began to tell those that stood by, that he was one of them. But he again denied it. And a little while after, they again, who stood by, said to Peter : S. Thou certainly art one of them; for thou art a Galilean. C. But he began to curse and swear, saying : I know not the man you speak of. C. And presently the cock crew again. And Peter remembered what Jesus had said to him : Before the cock croweth twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And he began to weep. And early in the morning the chief priests with the elders and Scribes, and the whole council, consulting
together, carried Jesus bound, and delivered him over to Pilate. And Pilate asked him: S. Art thou the King of the Jews? C. But he answering, faid to him: † Thou sayeft it. C. And the chief priests accused him of many things. And Pilate asked him again, saying: S. Answerest thou nothing? See what great things they alledge against thee. C. But Jesus still answered not; so that Pilate wondered. Now on the festival he was accustomed to release them one of the prisoners, whomsoever they Thould desire. And there was one called Barabbas, that was in prison with some rioters, who in the riot had committed murder. And the multitude being come up, began to require what he always granted them. And Pilate anfwered them, and faid: S. Would you have me release to you the King of the Jews ? C. For he knew the chief priefts had delivered him up out of envy. But the priests stirred up the multitude rather to have Barabbas released to them. And Pi. tate anfwering again, said to them: S. What then would you have me do with the King of the fews C. But they again cried out: S. Crucify him. C. And Pilate said to them: S. But what harm hath he done? C. But they cried out the more : S. Crucify him. C. And Pilate, being willing to fatisfy the people, released Barabbas, and delivered up to them Jesus, being first scourged, to be crucified. And the soldiers led him into the court of the palace, and they called together the whole company, and clothed him in purple: and wreathing a crown of thorns they put it on his head. And they began to falute him: Hail, King of the Jews! And they struck him on the head with a seed: and they spit on him, and kneeling down adored him. And after they had thus insulted him, they took off the purple garment, and put on him his own clothes, and led him out to crucify him. And.
they obliged a man that was paffing by, one Simon, a Cyrenean, coming from the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to carry his cross. And they bring him to the place Golgotha, which is interpreted, the place of Calvarya. And they gave him wine mingled with myrrh to drink: and he would not take it. And when they had crucified him, they divided his clothes, casting lots for them, to know what each should take. And it was now the third hour: and they crucified him. And the title of his Cause was thus written: THE KING OF THE JEWS. And they crucify with him two thieves ; one at his right hand, and the other at his left. And the scripture was fulfilled, that faith : And he was reckoned with the wicked. And they that passed by blafphemed against him, wagging their heads, and saying: S. Oh! Thou that destroyest the temple of God, and rebuildeft it in three days, save thyself, and come down from the cross. C. In like manner the chief priests with the Scribes, insulting, faid to one another: S. He saved others; but he cannot save himself. Let the Ch: if, the King of ifrael, now come down from the cross, that we may see and believe. C. And they that were crucified with him, reviled him. And at the fixth hour there was darkness over the whole earth untill the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying : + Eloi, Eloi, lamma sabac. thani? G. Which is interpreted : + My God, my God, why halt thou forsaken me? C. And some of the standers by hearing him, said: S. Behold, he calleth Elias. C. And one running and filling a fpunge with vinegar, and putting it on a reed, gave ië him to drink, saying : S. Hold, let us see, if Elias come to take him down. C. And Jesus crying out with a loud voice, expired *. And the veil of the . temple was rent in two from the top to the bottom. And the Centurion, who stood over-against him,
a Or, Sculls, * Here all knuti, and pause.
seeing that fo crying out he had expired, said: S. Truly this man was the Son of God. C. And there were also some women looking on afar off: among whom was Mary Magdalen, and Mary the mother of James the lefs, and of Joseph, and Salome; and when he was in Galilee, they followed him, and served him; and
other women that were come up with him to Jerusalem.

ND when the evening was come (because it
was the preparation before the Sabbath) Joseph of Arimathea, a noble decurion, who alsó was expecting the kingdom of God, came and went boldly to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. But Pilate wondered that he was dead already. And having fent for the Centurion, he asked him, if he was dead already. And when he knew it from the Centurion, he gave the body to Jofeph. And Jofeph having bought a linen winding-sheet, and taken him down, wrapped him in the winding-sheet, and laid him in a fepulchre that was hewn out of a rock: and he rolled a stone at the entrance of the sepulchre.
