The Death of Jesus Christ - Matthew 27

When the morning was come, all the chief priests  and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus to put  him to death: Matthew 27:1  KJV

Matthew 27:2 And when they had bound him, they  led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the  governor.

Matthew 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayeth him, when he  saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought  again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and  elders, 

Matthew 27:4 Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed  the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see  thou to that. 

Matthew 27:5 And he cast down the pieces of silver  in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.  

Matthew 27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said,  It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is  the price of blood. 

Matthew 27:7 And they took counsel, and  bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.    

Matthew 27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood,  unto this day. 

Matthew 27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was  spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the  thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued,  whom they of the 
children of Israel did value.

Godly LIving

Matthew 27:10 And  gave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord appointed me.  

Matthew 27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the  governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews?  And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest. 

Matthew 27:12 And when  he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered  nothing. 

Matthew 27:13 Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou  not how many things they witness against thee? 

Matthew 27:14  And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the  governor marvelled greatly. 

Matthew 27:15 Now at that feast the  governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner,  whom they would. 

Matthew 27:16 And they had then a notable  prisoner, called Barabbas. 

Matthew 27:17 Therefore when they  were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will  ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is  called Christ? 

Matthew 27:18 For he knew that for envy they had  delivered him.  

Matthew 27:19 When he was set down on the judgment seat, his  wife sent unto him, saying, 
Have thou nothing to do with  that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a  
dream because of him. 

Matthew 27:20 But the chief priests and  elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask  Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. 

Matthew 27:21 The governor  answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye  that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. 

Matthew 27:22 Pilate  saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is  called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.  

Matthew 27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he  done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be  crucified.  

Matthew 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing,  but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and  washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am  innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.  

Matthew 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His blood  be on us, and on our children.  

Matthew 27:26 Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when  he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.  

Matthew 27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into  the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of  soldiers. 

Matthew 27:28 And they stripped him, and put on him a  scarlet robe.  

Matthew 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns,  they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and  they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying,  Hail, King of the Jews! 

Matthew 27:30 And they spit upon him,  and took the reed, and smote him on the head. 

Matthew 27:31 And  after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from  him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to  crucify him. 

Matthew 27:32 And as they came out, they found a  man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear  his cross. 

Matthew 27:33 And when they were come unto a place  called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,  

Matthew 27:34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with  gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.  

Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments,  casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by  the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and  upon my vesture did they cast lots. 

Matthew 27:36 And sitting  down they watched him there; 

Matthew 27:37 And set up over his  head his accusation written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING  OF THE JEWS. 

Matthew 27:38 Then were there two thieves  crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on  the left.   

Matthew 27:39 And they that passed by reviled him, wagging  their heads, 

Matthew 27:40 And saying, Thou that destroyest the  temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou  be the Son of God, come down from the cross. 

Matthew 27:41  Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the  scribes and elders, said, 

Matthew 27:42 He saved others; himself  he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now  come down from the cross, and we will believe him.  

Matthew 27:43 He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he  will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God. 

Matthew 27:44  The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the  same in his teeth. 

Matthew 27:45 Now from the sixth hour there  was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour. 

Matthew 27:46  And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,  saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God,  my God, why hast thou forsaken me? 

Matthew 27:47 Some of  them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This  man calleth for Elias. 

Matthew 27:48 And straightway one of  them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar,  and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink. 

Matthew 27:49 The  rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save  him.  

Matthew 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice,  yielded up the ghost. 

Matthew 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the  temple was rent in twain from the top to the 
bottom; and the  earth did quake, and the rocks rent; 

Matthew 27:52 And the graves  were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept  arose, 

Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graves after his  resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto  many. 

Matthew 27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were  with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those  things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this  was the Son of God. 

Matthew 27:55 And many women were there  beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee,  ministering unto him: 

Matthew 27:56 Among which was Mary  Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and  the mother of Zebedee’s children. 

Matthew 27:57 When the even  was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named  Joseph, who also himself was Jesus’ disciple: 

Matthew 27:58 He  went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate  commanded the body to be delivered. 

Matthew 27:59 And when  Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen  cloth, 

Matthew 27:60 And laid it in his own new tomb, which he  had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the  door of the sepulchre, and departed. 

Matthew 27:61 And there was  Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against  the sepulchre.  

Matthew 27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the  preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together  unto Pilate, 

Matthew 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that  deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will  rise again. 

Matthew 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre  be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by  night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is  risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the  first. 

Matthew 27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch: go  your way, make it as sure as ye can. 

Matthew 27:66 So they  went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, and  setting a watch.
