Luke - Chapter 23

2 They began their accusation by saying, 'We found this man inciting our people to revolt, opposing payment of the tribute to Caesar, and claiming to be Christ, a king.'
6 When Pilate heard this, he asked if the man were a Galilean;
7 and finding that he came under Herod's jurisdiction, he passed him over to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time.
10 Meanwhile the chief priests and the scribes were there, vigorously pressing their accusations.
12 And though Herod and Pilate had been enemies before, they were reconciled that same day.
14 He said to them, 'You brought this man before me as a popular agitator. Now I have gone into the matter myself in your presence and found no grounds in the man for any of the charges you bring against him.
18 But as one man they howled, 'Away with him! Give us Barabbas!'
19 (This man had been thrown into prison because of a riot in the city and murder.)
20 In his desire to set Jesus free, Pilate addressed them again,
27 Large numbers of people followed him, and women too, who mourned and lamented for him.
28 But Jesus turned to them and said, 'Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep rather for yourselves and for your children.
29 For look, the days are surely coming when people will say, "Blessed are those who are barren, the wombs that have never borne children, the breasts that have never suckled!"
30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, "Fall on us!"; to the hills, "Cover us!"
31 For if this is what is done to green wood, what will be done when the wood is dry?'
35 The people stayed there watching. As for the leaders, they jeered at him with the words, 'He saved others, let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.'
41 but in our case we deserved it: we are paying for what we did. But this man has done nothing wrong.'
49 All his friends stood at a distance; so also did the women who had accompanied him from Galilee and saw all this happen.
52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus.
53 He then took it down, wrapped it in a shroud and put it in a tomb which was hewn in stone and which had never held a body.
54 It was Preparation day and the Sabbath was beginning to grow light.
