John Chapter 18
18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples
over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered,
and his disciples.
18:2 And Judas also, which betrayed him, knew the place: for Jesus
ofttimes resorted thither with his disciples.
18:3 Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the
chief priests and Pharisees, cometh thither with lanterns and torches
18:4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went
forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?
18:5 They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am
he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.
18:6 As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward,
and fell to the ground.
18:7 Then asked he them again, Whom seek ye? And they said, Jesus of
18:8 Jesus answered, I have told you that I am he: if therefore ye seek
me, let these go their way:
18:9 That the saying might be fulfilled, which he spake, Of them which
thou gavest me have I lost none.
18:10 Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high
priest's servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant's name was
18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the
cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?
18:12 Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus,
and bound him,
18:13 And led him away to Annas first; for he was father in law to
Caiaphas, which was the high priest that same year.
18:14 Now Caiaphas was he, which gave counsel to the Jews, that it was
expedient that one man should die for the people.
18:15 And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple: that
disciple was known unto the high priest, and went in with Jesus into the
palace of the high priest.
18:16 But Peter stood at the door without. Then went out that other
disciple, which was known unto the high priest, and spake unto her that
kept the door, and brought in Peter.
18:17 Then saith the damsel that kept the door unto Peter, Art not thou
also one of this man's disciples? He saith, I am not.
18:18 And the servants and officers stood there, who had made a fire of
coals; for it was cold: and they warmed themselves: and Peter stood with
them, and warmed himself.
18:19 The high priest then asked Jesus of his disciples, and of his
18:20 Jesus answered him, I spake openly to the world; I ever taught in
the synagogue, and in the temple, whither the Jews always resort; and in
secret have I said nothing.
18:21 Why askest thou me? ask them which heard me, what I have said unto
them: behold, they know what I said.
18:22 And when he had thus spoken, one of the officers which stood by
struck Jesus with the palm of his hand, saying, Answerest thou the high
18:23 Jesus answered him, If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the
evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?
18:24 Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiaphas the high priest.
18:25 And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto
him, Art not thou also one of his disciples? He denied it, and said, I
18:26 One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose
ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him?
18:27 Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew.
18:28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and
it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest
they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye
against this man?
18:30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we
would not have delivered him up unto thee.
18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according
to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us
to put any man to death:
18:32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake,
signifying what death he should die.
18:33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called
Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
18:34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did
others tell it thee of me?
18:35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief
priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom
were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be
delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus
answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for
this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the
truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this,
he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no
fault at all.
18:39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto you one at the
passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the King of the
18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now
Barabbas was a robber.
Go ye therefore, and teach
all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father, and of
the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
