15:1 And straightway in the morning the Rashei Hakohanim held a consultation with the Zekenim and Sofrim and the whole council, and bound Yehoshua  (יהושע), and carried [him] away, and delivered [him] to Pilatos.

15:2 And Pilatos asked Him, Art you the King of the Yehudim? And he answering said to Him, You sayest [it].

15:3 And the Rashei Hakohanim accused Him of many things: but he answered nothing.

15:4 And Pilatos asked Him again, saying, Answerest you nothing? behold how many things they witness against you.

15:5 But Yehoshua  (יהושע) yet answered nothing; so that Pilatos marvelled.

15:6 Now at [that] feast he released to them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.

15:7 And there was [one] named Bar Abba, [which lay] bound with them that had made insurrection with Him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

15:8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire [him to do] as he had ever done to them.

15:9 But Pilatos answered them, saying, Will you that I release to you the King of the Yehudim?

15:10 For he knew that the Rashei Hakohanim had delivered Him for envy.

15:11 But the Rashei Hakohanim moved the people, that he should rather release Bar Abba to them.

15:12 And Pilatos answered and said again to them, What will you then that I shall do [to him] whom you call the King of the Yehudim?

15:13 And they cried out again, impale Him.

15:14 Then Pilatos said to them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, impale Him.

15:15 And [so] Pilatos, willing to content the people, released Bar Abba to them, and delivered Yehoshua  (יהושע), when he had scourged [him], to be impaled.

15:16 And the soldiers led Him away into the hall, called praitorion; and they call together the whole band.

15:17 And they clothed Him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his [head],

15:18 And began to salute Him, Greetings, Melekh Yehudim!

15:19 And they smote Him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon Him, and bowing [their] knees worshipped Him.

15:20 And when they had mocked Him, they took off the purple from Him, and put his own clothes on Him, and led Him out to impale Him.

15:21 And they compel one Shimon a Kurenaios, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexandros and Rhoufos, to bear his stauros (Roman stake).

15:22 And they bring Him to the place Gulgotha, which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.

15:23 And they gave Him to drink wine mingled with myrrh: but he received [it] not.

15:24 And when they had impaled Him, they parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what every man should take.

15:25 And it was the third hour, and they impaled Him.

15:26 And the superscription of his accusation was written over, MELEKH YEHUDIM.

15:27 And with Him they impale two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left.

15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which said, And he was numbered with the transgressors.

15:29 And they that passed by railed on Him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, you that destroyest the Heikhal, and buildest [it] in three days,

15:30 Save yourself, and come down from the stauros (Roman stake).

15:31 Likewise also the Rashei Hakohanim mocking said among themselves with the Sofrim, He saved others; himself he cannot save.

15:32 Let Mashiach Melekh Yisrael descend now from the stauros (Roman stake), that we may see and believe. And they that were impaled with Him reviled Him.

15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.

15:34 And at the ninth hour Yehoshua  (יהושע) cried with a loud voice, saying, ELI ELI LAMAH AZAVTANI? which is, being interpreted, My Elohim, my Elohim, why hast you forsaken me?

15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard [it], said, Behold, he calleth Eliyahu.

15:36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put [it] on a reed, and gave Him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Eliyahu will come to take Him down.

15:37 And Yehoshua  (יהושע) cried with a loud voice, and having breathed His last, expired.

15:38 And the veil of the Heikhal was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.

15:39 And when the centurion, which stood over against Him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the Spirit, he said, Truly this man was the Ben Elohim.

15:40 There were also women looking on afar off: among whom was Miryam of Magdala, and Miriyam the mother of Yaakov the less and of Yosi, and Shlomit;

15:41 (Who also, when he was in Galil, followed Him, and ministered to him;) and many other women which came up (ayilah leregel) with Him to Yerushalayim.

15:42 And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Shabbat,

15:43 Yosef of Ramatayim, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the Malkut Elohim, came, and went in boldly to Pilatos, and craved the body of Yehoshua  (יהושע).

15:44 And Pilatos marvelled if he were already dead: and calling [to him] the centurion, he asked Him whether he had been any while dead.

15:45 And when he knew [it] of the centurion, he gave the body to Yosef.

15:46 And he bought fine linen, and took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen, and laid Him in a kever which was hewn out of a rock, and rolled a stone to the door of the kever.

15:47 And Miryam of Magdala and Miriyam [the mother] of Yosi beheld where he was laid.

Yosef of Ramatayim (Mattityahu 27:57, Markos 15:43, Loukas 23:50) and Nakdimon (Yochanan 3:1, Yochanan 7:50) were two highly placed Messianic Jews, both members of the Sanhedrin (Loukas 23:50-51, Yochanan 7:50-52); both secret believers. he should, after acquiring some knowledge enabling him to defend his views (1 Kefa 3:15-16), be willing to set fear aside and stand openly with Yeshua the Messiah. Yochanan does not disparage them for hiding their faith (see Yochanan 9:22, Loukas 12:8-9).
