And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people, and the high priests and scribes, came together, and led him into their council saying, "Art thou very Christ? Tell us." And he said unto them, "If I shall tell you, ye will not believe. And if also I ask you, ye will not answer me, or let me go. Hereafter shall the son of man sit on the righthand of the power of God."

Judas also which betrayed him, stood with them. read more.
But as soon as he had said unto them, "I am he," they went backwards and fell to the ground. And he asked them again, "Whom seek ye?" They said, "Jesus of Nazareth." Jesus answered, "I said unto you, I am he. If ye seek me, let these go their way." That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, "Of them which thou gavest me have I not lost one." Simon Peter had a sword, and drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus. Then said Jesus unto Peter, "Put up thy sword into the sheath: shall I not drink of the cup which my father hath given me?" Then the company, and the Captain, and the ministers of the Jews, took Jesus and bound him, and led him away to Annas, first: For he was father-in-law unto Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year. Caiphas was he that gave counsel to the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people. And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and another disciple: that disciple was known of the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the palace of the high priest. But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other disciple which was known unto the high priest, and spake to the damsel that kept the door, and brought in Peter. Then said the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, "Art not thou one of this man's disciples?" He said, "I am not." The servants and the ministers stood there, and had made a fire of coals. For it was cold, and they warmed themselves. Peter also stood among them and warmed himself. The high priest asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his doctrine. Jesus answered him, "I spake openly in the world. I ever taught in the synagogue and in the temple whither all the Jews resorted: and in secret have I said nothing: why askest thou me? Ask them which heard me, what I said unto them. Behold they can tell what I said." When he had thus spoken, one of the ministers which stood by, smote Jesus on the face saying, "Answerest thou the high priest so?" Jesus answered him, "If I have evil spoken, bear witness of the evil: if I have well spoken, why smitest thou me?" And Annas sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest. Simon Peter stood and warmed himself, and they said unto him, "Art not thou also one of his disciples?" He denied it, and said, "I am not." One of the servants of the high priest, his cousin whose ear Peter smote off, said unto him, "Did not I see thee in the garden with him?" Peter denied it again: and immediately the cock crew. Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas into the hall of judgment. It was in the morning, and they themselves went not into the judgment hall lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the paschal lamb. Pilate then went out unto them and said, "What accusation bring ye against this man?" They answered, and said unto him, "If he were not an evil doer, we would not have delivered him unto thee." Then said Pilate unto them, "Take ye him unto you, and judge him after your own law." Then the Jews said unto him, "It is not lawful for us to put any man to death." That the words of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, "Art thou the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Sayest thou that of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?" Pilate answered, "Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and high priests have delivered thee unto me. What hast thou done?" Jesus answered, "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world then would my ministers surely fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now is my kingdom not from hence." Pilate said unto him, "Art thou a King then?" Jesus answered, "Thou sayest that I am a King. For this cause was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. And all that are of the truth hear my voice." Pilate said unto him, "What thing is truth?" And when he had said that, he went out again unto the Jews, and said unto them, "I find in him no cause at all. Ye have a custom among you, that I should deliver you one loose at Easter. Will ye that I loose unto you the King of the Jews?" Then cried they all again saying, "Not him, but Barabbas." That Barabbas was a robber.


And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was a ruler among the publicans, and was rich also. And he made means to see Jesus, what he should be: and he could not for the press, because he was of a low stature. Wherefore, he ran before, and climbed up into a wild fig tree to see him. For he should come that same way. read more.
And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, "Zach, come down at once: for today I must abide at thy house." And hastily he came down, and received him joyfully. And when they saw that, they all grudged saying, "He is gone in to tarry with a man that is a sinner." And Zacchaeus stood forth and said unto the Lord, "Behold Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor, and if I have done any man wrong, I will restore him four fold." And Jesus said to him, "This day is health come unto this house, forasmuch as he also is become the child of Abraham. For the son of man is come to seek, and to save that which was lost."


The chief priests, and the elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, for to put him to death,


When Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answered and said unto them, "What think ye in your hearts?


And he departed thence, and went into their synagogue, and behold, there was a man, which had his hand dried up. And they asked him, saying, "Is it lawful to heal upon the Sabbath days?" Because they might accuse him. And he said unto them, "Which of you would it be, if he had a sheep fallen into a pit on the Sabbath day, that would not take him and lift him out? read more.
And how much is a man better then a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do a good deed on the Sabbath day." Then said he to the man, "Stretch forth thy hand." And he stretched it forth, and it was made whole again like unto the other.

And behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years: and was bowed together, and could not lift up herself at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said to her, "Woman, thou art delivered from thy disease." And he laid his hands on her, and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God. read more.
And the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because that Jesus had healed on the Sabbath day, and said unto the people, "There are six days in the week, in which men ought to work, in them come and be healed, and not on the Sabbath day."
