Jesus is accused before Pilate, who sendeth him to Herod. Herod disappointed in his expectations mocketh him, and sendeth him back. Pilate willing to release Jesus, is prevailed on by the clamours of the people to release Barabbas, and give Jesus to be crucified. Being led to the place of execution, Jesus biddeth the women who lamented him to weep rather for themselves and their children: he is crucified between two malefactors: prayeth for his enemies; is scoffed at; reviled by one of the malefactors, but confessed by the other, to whom he promiseth a place in paradise. The unusual darkness, and rending of the veil of the temple: Christ crieth unto God, and expireth: the centurion's confession of him. Joseph of Arimathaea beggeth his body, and burieth it. The women prepare spices for the end of the sabbath.
