Thinkest thou, that I cannot now entreat my Father, and he will give me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then would the scriptures be fulfilled, that thus it must be?

But he denied it before them all, asserting, I know not what thou art saying. Then as he was going out at the gate, another maid-servant saw him, and saith to those who were there, This fellow also was with Jesus of Nazareth. Then again he denied with an oath, I know not the man.

Daily was I with you in the temple teaching, and ye laid no hold upon me: but [this is done] that the scriptures might be fulfilled. Then they all deserting him, fled. And a certain youth followed him, having a linen cloth wrapped round his naked body; and the young men laid hold of him; and leaving the linen cloth behind, he fled naked from them. And they led Jesus unto the high-priest; and with him were assembled all the chief priests, and the elders, and the scribes. And Peter followed him at a distance, until he came into the palace of the high-priest: and was seated with the servants, and warming himself at the fire.

For many bore false witness against him, and their attestations did not correspond. And certain persons rising up, bore false witness against him, saying, We have heard him affirm, I will destroy this temple made with hands, and after three days I will build another not made with hands. But even then their testimony was not correspondent. So the high-priest rising up in the midst interrogated Jesus, Answerest thou nothing? What is it that these witness against thee? But he kept silence, and made them not a word of reply. Again the high-priest questioned him, and said to him, Art thou the Messiah, the Son of the blessed? Then said Jesus, I am. And ye shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. Then the high-priest rent his clothes, and said, What farther need have we of witnesses? Ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye? And they all adjudged him to be deserving of death. And some began to spit upon him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say to him, Prophesy: and the servants slapped him on the face with their hands. And as Peter was in the hall, at the lower end, there came to him one of the high-priest's maid-servants: and seeing Peter warming himself, stedfastly looking at him, she said, Thou also wast with Jesus of Nazareth. Then he denied it, saying, I do not so much as know him, nor understand what thou art saying. And he went out into the vestibule; and the cock crew. And a maid-servant observing him again; began to say to those who stood by, This man is one of them. Then he denied it again. And after a little while, they who stood by said to Peter, Of a certainty thou art one of them; for thou art a Galilean, and thy speech is correspondent. Then began he to make the most dreadful imprecations, and to swear, I know not the man of whom ye speak. And the second time the cock crew. And Peter remembered the word which Jesus spake unto him, That before the cock crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice. And casting his mantle over his face, he wept.

And while he was yet speaking, behold a multitude, and he who was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and approached Jesus to kiss him. Then said Jesus unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss? Then when they who were about him saw what was ready to happen, they said unto him, Lord, shall we strike with the sword? read more.
And one of them struck at a servant of the high-priest, and cut off his right ear. Then Jesus, addressing them, said, Permit me thus far: and touching his ear, he healed him. Then said Jesus to the chief priests and captains of the temple, and to the elders who were come forth against him, Are ye come out as against a robber, with swords and staves? When I was daily with you in the temple, ye stretched out no hands upon me: but this is your hour, and the power of darkness. Then seizing upon him, they led him away, and brought him into the palace of the high-priest. But Peter followed at a distance. And as they had lighted a fire in the middle of the hall, and had seated themselves in a company, Peter sat down in the midst of them. But a certain maid-servant who sat at the fire, eyeing him, and looking at him stedfastly, said, This man was also with him. But he denied him, saying, Woman, I know him not. And after a little while another seeing him, said, Surely thou art one of them. Then said Peter, Man, I am not. And at about an hour's distance, another person strongly asserted, saying, Of a certainty this fellow was also with him: for he too is a Galilean. And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And instantly, while he was yet speaking, the cock crew. And the Lord, turning round, looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said to him, That before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And Peter going without, wept bitterly. And the men who held Jesus insulted him, beating him with rods; and blindfolding him, smote him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is he that struck thee? And many other things, blaspheming, spake they against him. And when the day broke, the elders of the people and the chief priests and scribes assembled, and brought him into their sanhedrim, saying, If thou art the Messiah, tell us. And he said unto them, If I tell you, ye will not believe: and if I shall ask you any question, ye will neither answer me, nor let me go free. Hereafter shall the Son of man sit at the right hand of the power of God. Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Yourselves say that I am. Then they said, What further need have we of witness? for we have heard it from his own mouth.

As he then spake to them, I am he, they retreated backward, and fell flat on the ground. Again therefore he demanded of them, Whom seek ye? Then they said, Jesus the Nazarean. Jesus answered, I told you that I am he: if therefore ye are seeking me, permit these to go away: that the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, That of those whom thou hast given me, I have not lost one of them. Then Simon Peter having a sword, drew it, and struck a servant of the high-priest, and cut off his right ear. Now the servant's name was Malchas. Then said Jesus to Peter, Put up thy sword into the scabbard: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? The band therefore, and the chief captain, and the inferior officers of the Jews, seized on Jesus, and bound him, and led him away to Annas first; for he was father-in-law to Caiaphas, who was the high-priest of that year. Now Caiaphas was the person who had given his advice to the Jews, that it was expedient that one man should be destroyed instead of the people. Now Simon Peter had followed Jesus, and another disciple: and that disciple was acquainted with the high-priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high-priest. But Peter stood without at the door. Then that other disciple, who was acquainted with the high-priest, went out, and spoke to the porteress, and introduced Peter. Then said the damsel who kept the door to Peter, Art not thou also one of the disciples of this man? He saith, I am not. Now the servants and inferior officers having made a fire, for it was cold, stood and warmed themselves: and there stood Peter with them, and warmed himself. The high-priest then questioned Jesus concerning his disciples, and respecting his doctrine. Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews resorted; and in secret have I spoken nothing. Why dost thou question me? ask those who have heard me, what I have spoken to them: lo, they know what I said. As he was thus speaking, one of the servants who stood by him gave Jesus a slap on the face, saying, Dost thou answer the high-priest in this fashion? Jesus replied to him, If I have spoken in an improper manner, bear witness of the evil deed: but if properly, why strikest thou me? Now Annas had sent him bound to Caiaphas the high-priest. Meanwhile Simon Peter was standing and warming himself. Then said they to him, Art not thou also one of this man's disciples? He denied it, and said, I am not. One of the servants of the high-priest, being a kinsman of him whose ear Peter cut off, said, Did I not see thee in the garden with him? Then again Peter denied: and instantly the cock crew. Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas to the praetorium: and it was early: and they themselves went not into the praetorium, that they should not be defiled; but that they might eat the passover. Pilate then came out to them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? They answered and said to him, If this fellow had not been a malefactor, we should not have delivered him up to thee. Pilate then said to them, Take him yourselves, and according to your own law judge him. The Jews then said to him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death: that the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, intimating by what manner of death he should die. Pilate therefore entered again into the praetorium, and called Jesus, and said to him, Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus answered him, Dost thou speak this from thyself, or did others speak to thee concerning me? Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thy own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee to me: what hast thou done? Jesus replied, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom had been of this world, then would my servants have struggled hard, that I should not have been delivered up to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. Then said Pilate unto him. Art thou not a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. For this end I was born, and for this I came into the world, that I should be a witness for the truth. Every one who is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And having thus spoken, he went out again unto the Jews and saith to them, I find no fault in him. But ye have a custom, that I should release to you one person at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the Jews? Then again they all clamoured, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.


And there was a person whose name was Zaccheus, and he was a principal farmer of the taxes, and the man was rich. And he was desirous to have a sight of Jesus, what sort of person he was; and he could not, because of the crowd, for he was short of stature. So running before, he climbed up a sycamore-tree, in order to get a sight of him: for he was about to pass that way. read more.
And when he was come to the spot, Jesus looking up, saw him, and said to him, Zaccheus, come down speedily; for to-day I must abide at thy house. And he hastened to come down, and entertained him gladly. And when they all saw it, they murmured, saying, That he is gone to lodge with a man, a notorious sinner. Then Zaccheus standing up, said unto the Lord, Behold, the half of my goods, Lord, I give unto the poor; and if I have got any thing from any man, by laying false informations, I am ready to restore fourfold. Then said Jesus unto him, To-day is salvation come to this house, because that he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.


Now the chief priests and elders and the whole sanhedrim, sought false witness against Jesus, that they might put him to death;


And Jesus knowing their reasoning, in reply said to them, Why do ye reason in your hearts?


And going on from thence, he came into their synagogue; and, behold a man was there who had a withered hand. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on sabbath days? that they might accuse him. Then he said to them; What man of you is there who hath one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath, doth he not lay hold on him, and lift him out? read more.
Of how much more value then is a man than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do good on the sabbath days. Then saith he to the man, Stretch out thy hand; and he stretched it out, and it was restored, sound as the other.

And, behold, there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and unable to raise herself at all up. But when Jesus saw her, he called out aloud, and said to her, Woman, thou art delivered from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands upon her: and instantly she became erect, and glorified God. read more.
Then the ruler of the synagogue, indignant, that on the sabbath Jesus had performed the cure, addressing himself to the multitude, said, There are six days in which work is to be done: on these therefore come and be cured, and not on the sabbath-day.
