And it was morning; and they went not into the hall, that they might not be defiled, but that they might eat the pasch. Pilate therefore went out to them and said : What accusation bring you against: this man? They answered and said to him: It hy; were not a malefactor we would not have delivered, him up to thee. Pilate then said to them: Tako him, you, and judge him according to your lawn The Jews therefore said to him: It is not lawful fefe us to put any man to death. That the word of Jesus, might be fulfilled which he said, siguifying what death he should die: Pilate therefore went into the hall again, and called Jesus and said to him: Art thou the king of the Jews? Jesus answered: Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee, of me? Pilate answered: Am I a Jew? Thy own nation, and the chief priest have delivered thee up, to me: what hast thou done? Jesus answered: Mye kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now my kingdom is not from hence. Pilate therefore said to; him. Art thou a king then? Jesus answered: Thoy, sayest, that. I am a king. For this was I born, and.. for this I came into the world ; that I should give tes timony to the truth. Every one that is of the truth, a heareth my voice. Pilate saith to him: What is the truth? And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them: I find no cause in him. But you have a custom that I should release one unto you at the pasch: will you therefore, that I release unto you the king of the Jews? Then cried they all again saying: Not this man but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. Then therefore Pilate took, Jesus, and scourged him. And the sol diers platting a crown of thorns, put it upon his head; and they put on him a purple garment. And they came to him, and said: Hail, king of the Jews;
Cartary, but in Hebrew Golgotha. Where they orucified him; and with himn two others, one of each side, and Jesus in the midst. And Pijate wrote å title also: and he put it upon the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title therefore many of the Jews did read: because the place where Jesus was crucified, was nigh to the city; and it was written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin. Then the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate: Write not, The king of the Jews; but that he said, I am the king of the Jews. Pilate answered: What I have written, I have written. The soldiers therefore when they had crucified hit; took his garments (and they made four parts, to every soldier à part), and also his coat, Now thie coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said then otie to another: Let us not cut it, but let us cast lots for it whose it shall be ; that the scripture might be fulfilled which faith : st'They have parted my garinents among them and l'upon my vesture they have cast lots." And the soldiers indeed did these things. Now there stood by the cross of Jesus, his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalen. When Jesus therefore had seen his mother, and the disciple standing whom he loved, he saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy Sorí. After that, be Katth to the disciple: Behold thy mother. And front that hour the disciple took her to his own. AfterWarit Jesus knowing that all things
were now accom plished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, said : I thirst Now there was a vessel set'there full of vines gat. And they putting a sponge hill' of vinegar about hyssop put it to his mouth. Jesús therefore when he had taken the vinegar, said it is consummated. And bowing his head; he gave up the ghost*, Tbet the

Jews (because it was the parasceve) that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the sabbath-day (for that was a great sabbath-day), besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came: and they broke the legs of the first, and of the other that was crucified with him. But after they canie to Jesus, when they saw that he was already dead. they did not break his legs. But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side, and immediately there came out blood and water. And he that saw it hath given testimony: and his testimony is true. And he knoweth that he saith true; that you also * * may Lelieve. For these things were done that the scripture might be fulfilled : « You shall not break a bone of him.” And again another scripture saith: ". They shall look on him whom they pierced.” Ilere is said, Cleanse my heart. ORDINARY, p. xx. AND after these things. Joseph of Arimathea (be
cause he was a disciple of Jesus, but secretly for fear of the Jews) besought Pilate that he might take the body of Jesus. And Pilate gave leave. He came therefore and took away the body of Jesus. And Nicodemus also came, he who at the first came to Jesus hy night, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about one hundred pound weight. They took therefore the body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the manner of the Jews is to bury. Now there was in the place, where he was crucified, a garden: and in the garden a new sepulchre, wherein no man had yet been laida There therefore, because of the parasceve of the Jews, they laid Jesus, because the sepulchre was nigh at hand. Then the Priest, standing on the Epistle side, says as
follows. (Let us pray, most dearly beloved brethren, for the
holy Church of God, that the Lord God would le pleased to grant it peace, maintain it in union, and preserve it all over the carth. That he would likewise bring into her bosom, the princes and potens tates of the whole world, and grant us peace and tranquillity in this life, and to glorify God the Father Almighty. ]
