Chapter Eighteen

WHEN IaHUShUA' had spoken these words, He went forth with His disciples over the brook Kedron, where was a garden, into which entered He, and His disciples.
2 And also knew Iahudah, (that had made possible the arrest of Him), himself the place: since IaHUShUA' many times had lead together in that place with these His disciples.
3 Iahudah then, having received a troop (squadron of police) from the chief priests, and from the Pharisees officers, came to that place with torches and lamps also weapons.
4 IaHUShUA' therefore, knowing all things that should come upon Him, went forth, and said to them, Who seek you?
5 They answered Him, IaHUShUA' this NaZIRIaH. says to them, I Am. And stood Iahudah also, which betrayed Him, with them.
6 Even as then He had said to them, I Am, they went toward this behind, and fell to the ground.
7 Then again asked He them, Who seek you? And they said, IaHUShUA' of NaZIRIaH.
8 Answered IaHUShUA',I have told you that I Am: if therefore Me you seek, send forth these to withdraw:
9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which He spoke, "Who You gave Me have I lost of them none".
10 Then Shimeon Kepha having a small sword drew it, and smote the high priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was Malchus.
11 Then said IaHUShUA' to Kepha, Put up the sword into the sheath: the cup which has given Me the Father, not shall I drink it?
12 Then the squadron and the commander and officers (Law enforcement agents) of the Iahudim took IaHUShUA',and bound Him:
13 And led away to Chananiah first; for he was father in law to Kaiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
14 Now Kaiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Iahudim, that it bears together (is expedient), one man should die in behalf of the people.
19 The high priest then asked IaHUShUA' of His disciples, and of His instruction.
20 Answered him IaHUShUA',I openly spoke of this orderly arrangement (i.e. IaHUeH's Kingdom); I every when gave instruction in the synagogue (assembly), and in the temple, whatwhere all the Iahudim come together; and in secret have I said nothing.
21 Why Me ask you? ask them which heard, what I have said to them: behold, they perceived what spoke I.
22 And thus when He had spoken, one which stood by of the officers struck IaHUShUA',saying, Answer You so the high priest?
23 Answered him IaHUShUA',If evil I have spoken, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smite you Me?
24 Then Chananiah sent Him bound to Kaiaphas the high priest.
15 And followed IaHUShUA' Shimeon Kepha and another disciple, Moreover this disciple he was known to the high priest, and went in with IaHUShUA' into the palace of the high priest.
16 But Kepha stood at the door outside. Then went out that other disciple, known to the high priest, and spoke to her that kept the door, and brought in Kepha.
17 Then said the damsel that kept the door to Kepha, Are not also you of this man's disciples? He said, I am not.
18 And stood the servants and officers, who had made a fire of coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves, and was also Kepha with them stood and warmed himself.
25 And they said therefore to him, Are not also you of His disciples? He denied, and said, not I am.
26 One of the servants of the high priest, being kinsman of whose ear Kepha cut off, said, Did not I see you in the garden with Him?
27 Then again denied Kepha: and immediately the cock crew.
28 Then they led IaHUShUA' from Kaiaphas to the judgment hall. And it was early morning. But they went not into the judgement hall, so they would not be defiled, but they might eat of the Passover.
29 Went out then Pilate outside to them, and said, What accusation bring you against This Man?
30 They answered and said to him, If He were not an evildoer, not perhaps unto you would we have delivered Him up.
31 Then said Pilate to them, Take you Him, and according to your law judge Him. Said to him the Iahudim, Not for us is it lawful to put to death any one:
32 (That the saying of IaHUShUA' be fulfilled, which He spoke, indicating what death He should die.)
33 Then entered again into the judgment hall this Pilate, and called IaHUShUA',and said to Him, Are You the King of the Iahudim?
34 Answered IaHUShUA',Of yourself Say you this thing? or did others tell you of Me?
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Iahudi? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You to me: what have You done?
36 Answered IaHUShUA',My Kingdom is not of this world: if of this world were this My Kingdom, My servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Iahudim: but at this time My Kingdom is not from this place.
37 Pilate therefore said to Him, Then a king are You? Answered IaHUShUA',You say that a King I am. I to this end was born, and for this thing came I into the world, in order that I should testify the Truth. Every one that is from the Truth hears My voice.
38 Pilate said to Him, What is truth? And when he had said this, again he went out to the Iahudim, and said unto them, I find in Him no fault.
39 But you have a custom, that I should release to you one at the Passover: will you therefore I release to you this King of the Iahudim?
40 Then cried they again, saying, Not this man, but Barabba. Now Barabba was a robber.
