Luke Chapters 23-24

Jesus Before Pilate
Luk 23:1  And the whole multitude of them arose, and led him unto Pilate. 
Luk 23:2  And they began to accuse him, saying, We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King. 
Luk 23:3  And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, Thou sayest it
Luk 23:4  Then said Pilate to the chief priests and to the people, I find no fault in this man. 
Luk 23:5  And they were the more fierce, saying, He stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place. 

Jesus Before Herod
Luk 23:6  When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean. 
Luk 23:7  And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time. 
Luk 23:8  And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. 
Luk 23:9  Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing. 
Luk 23:10  And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him. 
Luk 23:11  And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate. 
Luk 23:12  And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves. 
Luk 23:13  And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 
Luk 23:14  Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him: 
Luk 23:15  No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him. 
Luk 23:16  I will therefore chastise him, and release him. 
Luk 23:17  (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.) 

Pilate Delivers Jesus to Be Crucified
Luk 23:18  And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: 
Luk 23:19  (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) 
Luk 23:20  Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. 
Luk 23:21  But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. 
Luk 23:22  And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. 
Luk 23:23  And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. 
Luk 23:24  And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. 
Luk 23:25  And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will. 

The Crucifixion
Luk 23:26  And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear it after Jesus. 
Luk 23:27  And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 
Luk 23:28  But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 
Luk 23:29  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 
Luk 23:30  Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 
Luk 23:31  For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry? 
Luk 23:32  And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. 
Luk 23:33  And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left. 
Luk 23:34  Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots. 
Luk 23:35  And the people stood beholding. And the rulers also with them derided him, saying, He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the chosen of God. 
Luk 23:36  And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, 
Luk 23:37  And saying, If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. 
Luk 23:38  And a superscription also was written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew, THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. 
Luk 23:39  And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. 
Luk 23:40  But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 
Luk 23:41  And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. 
Luk 23:42  And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. 
Luk 23:43  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise. 

The Death of Jesus
Luk 23:44  And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. 
Luk 23:45  And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. 
Luk 23:46  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. 
Luk 23:47  Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. 
Luk 23:48  And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned. 
Luk 23:49  And all his acquaintance, and the women that followed him from Galilee, stood afar off, beholding these things. 

Jesus Is Buried
Luk 23:50  And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: 
Luk 23:51  (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the Jews: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. 
Luk 23:52  This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. 
Luk 23:53  And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid. 
Luk 23:54  And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. 
Luk 23:55  And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. 
Luk 23:56  And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment. 

The Resurrection
Luk 24:1  Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. 
Luk 24:2  And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 
Luk 24:3  And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 
Luk 24:4  And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 
Luk 24:5  And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 
Luk 24:6  He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 
Luk 24:7  Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again. 
Luk 24:8  And they remembered his words, 
Luk 24:9  And returned from the sepulchre, and told all these things unto the eleven, and to all the rest. 
Luk 24:10  It was Mary Magdalene, and Joanna, and Mary the mother of James, and other women that were with them, which told these things unto the apostles. 
Luk 24:11  And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not. 
Luk 24:12  Then arose Peter, and ran unto the sepulchre; and stooping down, he beheld the linen clothes laid by themselves, and departed, wondering in himself at that which was come to pass. 

On the Road to Emmaus
Luk 24:13  And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs. 
Luk 24:14  And they talked together of all these things which had happened. 
Luk 24:15  And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them. 
Luk 24:16  But their eyes were holden that they should not know him. 
Luk 24:17  And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad? 
Luk 24:18  And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?Luk 24:19  And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people: 
Luk 24:20  And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. 
Luk 24:21  But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 
Luk 24:22  Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; 
Luk 24:23  And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive. 
Luk 24:24  And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not. 
Luk 24:25  Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: 
Luk 24:26  Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory? 
Luk 24:27  And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself. 
Luk 24:28  And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further. 
Luk 24:29  But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. 
Luk 24:30  And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. 
Luk 24:31  And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. 
Luk 24:32  And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures? 
Luk 24:33  And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them, 
Luk 24:34  Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. 
Luk 24:35  And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread. 

Jesus Appears to His Disciples
Luk 24:36  And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 
Luk 24:37  But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. 
Luk 24:38  And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? 
Luk 24:39  Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. 
Luk 24:40  And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet. 
Luk 24:41  And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? 
Luk 24:42  And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. 
Luk 24:43  And he took it, and did eat before them. 
Luk 24:44  And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. 
Luk 24:45  Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, 
Luk 24:46  And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: 
Luk 24:47  And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. 
Luk 24:48  And ye are witnesses of these things. 
Luk 24:49  And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high. 

The Ascension
Luk 24:50  And he led them out as far as to Bethany, and he lifted up his hands, and blessed them. 
Luk 24:51  And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. 
Luk 24:52  And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: 
Luk 24:53  And were continually in the temple, praising and blessing God. Amen.
