26When Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said to his disciples, 2"You know that after two days the Passover is coming, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified."
3Then the chief priests and the elders of the people gathered in the palace of the high priest, whose name was Caiaphas,
4and plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill him. 5But they said, "Not during the feast, lest there be an uproar among the people."
14Then one of the twelve, whose name was Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests 15and said, "What will you give me if I deliver him over to you?" And they paid him thirty pieces of silver.
16And from that moment he sought an opportunity to betray him.
24So when Pilate saw that he was gaining nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man's blood;Some manuscripts this righteous blood, or this righteous man's blood see to it yourselves." 25And all the people answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!" 26Then he released for them Barabbas, and having scourgedA Roman judicial penalty, consisting of a severe beating with a multi-lashed whip containing imbedded pieces of bone and metal Jesus, delivered him to be crucified.
35And when they had crucified him, they divided his garments among them by casting lots.
36Then they sat down and kept watch over him there.
