Peters Third Denial of JesusPeter’s Third Denial of Jesus
 
69 Now Peter sat outside in the courtyard. And a servant girl came to him, saying, "You also were with Jesus of Galilee." 
70 But he denied it before them all, saying, "I do not know what you are saying." 
71 And when he had gone out to the gateway, another girl saw him and said to those who were there, "This fellow also was with Jesus of Nazareth." 
72 But again he denied with an oath, "I do not know the Man!" 
73 And a little later those who stood by came up and said to Peter, "Surely you also are one of them, for your speech betrays you." 
74 Then he began to curse and swear, saying, "I do not know the Man!"
    Immediately a rooster crowed. 
75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus who had said to him, "Before the rooster crows, you will deny Me three times." So he went out and wept bitterly. Matt 26:69-75 AMP

Jesus is condemed by Caiaphas/Sanhedrin/Council
Jesus Condemned by Caiaphas and Sanhedrin Council
 
66 As soon as it was day, the assembly of the elders of the people gathered together, both chief priests and scribes; and they led Him into their council (the Sanhedrin), and they said, 67 “If You are the Christ (the Messiah), tell us.”
    But He said to them, 
“If I tell you, you will not believe (trust in, cleave to, and rely on what I say), 68 And if I question you, you will not answer. 
69 But hereafter (from this time on), the Son of Man shall be seated at the right hand of the power of God.” 
70 And they all said, “You are the Son of God, then?” And He said to them, “It is just as you say; I AM.” 
71 And they said, “What further evidence do we need? For we have heard ourselves from His own mouth!”   
Luke 22:66-71 AMP

Suicide Of Judas
Suicide of Judas
 
3 Then Judas, his betrayer, seeing that Jesus had been condemned, deeply regretted what he had done. He returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, "I have sinned in betraying innocent blood." They said, "What is that to us? Look to it yourself." 
5 Flinging the money into the temple, he departed and went off and hanged himself. 
6 The chief priests gathered up the money, but said, "It is not lawful to deposit this in the temple treasury, for it is the price of blood." 7 After consultation, they used it to buy the potter’s field as a burial place for foreigners. 8 That is why that field even today is called the Field of Blood. 
9 Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet, "And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of a man with a price on his head, a price set by some of the Israelites, 10 and they paid it out for the potter’s field just as the Lord had commanded me."  
Matt 27:3-11 TNAB

Jesus before Pilate - First Time
Jesus Before Pilate (First Questioning)
 
1 And the whole company of them rose up, and brought him before Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this man perverting our nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ a King. 
3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said,
   Thou sayest. 4 And Pilate said unto the chief priests and the multitudes, I find no fault in this man. 5 But they were the more urgent, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Judaea, and beginning from Galilee even unto this place. 6 But when Pilate heard it, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean. 7 And when he knew that he was of Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent him unto Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem in these days. Luke 23:1-7 ASV

Jesus Before Herod
Before Herod
 
8 Now when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceedingly glad, for he had eagerly desired to see Him for a long time because of what he had heard concerning Him, and he was hoping to witness some sign (some striking evidence or spectacular performance) done by Him. 9 So he asked Him many questions, but He made no reply. 10 Meanwhile, the chief priests and the scribes stood by, continuing vehemently and violently to accuse Him. 11 And Herod, with his soldiers, treated Him with contempt and scoffed at and ridiculed Him; then, dressing Him up in bright and gorgeous apparel, he sent Him back to Pilate. 12 And that very day Herod and Pilate became friends with each other–[though] they had been at enmity before this.  Luke 23:8-12 AMP

Jesus to be crucified
Second Visit Before Pilate
 
13 Pilate then called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14 And said to them, “You brought this Man before me as One Who was perverting and misleading and turning away and corrupting the people; and behold, after examining Him before you, I have not found any offense (crime or guilt) in this Man in regard to your accusations against Him; 15 No, nor indeed did Herod, for he sent Him back to us; behold, He has done nothing deserving of death. 16 I will therefore chastise Him and deliver Him amended (reformed, taught His lesson) and release Him.” 17 For it was necessary for him to release to them one prisoner at the Feast. 
18 But they all together raised a deep cry [from the depths of their throats], saying, “Away with this Man! Release to us Barabbas!” 19 He was a man who had been thrown into prison for raising a riot in the city, and for murder. 
20 Once more Pilate called to them, wishing to release Jesus; 21 But they kept shouting out, “Crucify, crucify Him!”
22 A third time he said to them, “Why? What wrong has He done? I have found [no offense or crime or guilt] in Him nothing deserving of death; I will therefore chastise Him [in order to teach Him better] and release Him.” 
23 But they were insistent and urgent, demanding with loud cries that He should be crucified. And their voices prevailed (accomplished their purpose). 24 And Pilate gave sentence, that what they asked should be done. 25 So he released the man who had been thrown into prison for riot and murder, for whom they continued to ask, …. Luke 23:13-25 AMP

The Scourging
Roman Soldiers Scourged, Mocked and Placed a Crown of Thorns on Jesus
 
…and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified. 
27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole garrison around Him. 28 And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. 29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on 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!" 30 Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. 31 And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified. Matt 27:26-31 NKJV

Crucifixion of Jesus
Our Messiah Was Crucified
 
26 And when they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon of Cyrene, coming from the country, and laid on him the cross, to bear it after Jesus. 
27 And there followed him a great multitude of the people, and of women who bewailed and lamented him. 28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming, in which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the breasts that never gave suck. 30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 31 For if they do these things in the green tree, what shall be done in the dry?

 32 And there were also two others, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. 33 And when they came unto the place which is called The skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand and the other on the left.  Luke 23:26-33 ASV

They divided his garments by casting lots.Our Savior and Lord on the Cross
 
….34 (Then Jesus said,"Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.")
     They divided his garments by casting lots. 35 The people stood by and watched; the rulers, meanwhile, sneered at him and said, "He saved others, let him save himself if he is the chosen one, the Messiah of God." 
36 Even the soldiers jeered at him. As they approached to offer him wine 37 they called out, "If you are King of the Jews, save yourself." 
38 Above him there was an inscription that read,
 
      "This is the King of the Jews."
 
39 Now one of the criminals hanging there reviled Jesus, saying, "Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us." 
40 The other, however, rebuking him, said in reply, "Have you no fear of God, for you are subject to the same condemnation? 41 And indeed, we have been condemned justly, for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes, but this man has done nothing criminal." 42 Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." 
43 He replied to him, "Amen, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise." Luke 23:34-43 TNAB

Jesus ThirstsOur Savior Gives Up The Spirit
 
45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. 46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" that is, "My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?" 
47 Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, "This Man is calling for Elijah!" 48 Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink. 
49 The rest said, "Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him." 
50 And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. 
51 Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, 52 and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;…  Matt 27:45-52 NKJV

Strike of the LanceJesus speared in the side
 
31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. 32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of the other who was crucified with Him. 33 But when they came to Jesus and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and immediately blood and water came out. 35 And he who has seen has testified, and his testimony is true; and he knows that he is telling the truth, so that you may believe. 36 For these things were done that the Scripture should be fulfilled, "Not one of His bones shall be broken." 37 And again another Scripture says, "They shall look on Him whom they pierced."

Strike of the Lance 
Laid Jesus in the Tomb
 
38
 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked Pilate that he might take away the body of Jesus; and Pilate gave him permission. So he came and took the body of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the body of Jesus, and bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury. 41 Now in the place where He was crucified there was a garden, and in the garden a new tomb in which no one had yet been laid…. John 19:31-41 NKJV

The guards watch the tombThe guards watch the tomb
 
59 And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 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 tomb, and departed…. 
 
62 Now on the morrow, which is the day after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered together unto Pilate, 63 saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said while he was yet alive, After three days I rise again. 64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest haply his disciples come and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: and the last error will be worse than the first…. 
65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a guard: go, make it as sure as ye can. 66 So they went, and made the sepulchre sure, sealing the stone, the guard being with them.  
Matt 27:57-60, 62-66 ASV
