Mat 27:1 When the morning was come, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Jesus [deciding] to put him to death:
Mat 27:2 And when they had bound him [Jesus], they led him away, and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
~ Judas' Remorse
Mat 27:3 Then Judas, which had betrayed him [Jesus], when he [Judas] saw that he [Jesus] was condemned, [Judas] repented himself, and brought again [returned] the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders,
Mat 27:4 Saying, I [Judas] have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood [of Jesus]. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that [that's your responsibility].
Mat 27:5 And he [Judas] cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself.
Mat 27:6 And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood [blood money].
Mat 27:7 And they took counsel, and bought with them [the silver pieces] the potter's field, to bury strangers in.
Mat 27:8 Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day.
Mat 27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy [Jeremiah] the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him [Jesus] that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value [they of the children of Israel did also value Jesus at thirty pieces of silver] ;
Mat 27:10 And gave them [thirty pieces of silver] for the potter's field, as the Lord appointed me. [see Zec 11:12-13, Jer 19:1-13, Jer 32:6-9 ]
~ Jesus before Pilate
Mat 27:11 And Jesus stood before the governor [Pilate]: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest [it is as you say].
Mat 27:12 And when he [Jesus] was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing.
Mat 27:13 Then said Pilate unto him [Jesus], Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?
Mat 27:14 And he [Jesus] answered him to never a word [no reply, not even to a single charge]; insomuch that [at which] the governor marvelled greatly.
Mat 27:15 Now at that [Passover] feast the governor was wont [customary] to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would [choose].
Mat 27:16 And they had then a notable [notorious] prisoner, called Barabbas.
Mat 27:17 Therefore when they [the people] were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye [choose] that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
Mat 27:18 For he [Pilate] knew that for envy they [all the chief priests and elders of the people] had delivered him [Jesus, over to Pilate].
Mat 27:19 When he [Pilate] was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man [Jesus]: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him [Jesus].
Mat 27:20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask [for] Barabbas, and destroy Jesus [have Jesus executed].
Mat 27:21 The governor answered and said unto them, Whether [which] of the twain [two] will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
Mat 27:22 Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him [Jesus] be crucified.
Mat 27:23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he [Jesus] done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
Mat 27:24 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing [was getting nowhere], but that rather a tumult [uproar] was made, he took water, and washed his hands before [in front of] the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person [Jesus]: see ye to it [it is your responsibility].
Mat 27:25 Then answered all the people, and said, His [Jesus'] blood be on us, and on our children.
Mat 27:26 Then released he [ Then Pilate released] Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.
~ The Soldiers Mock Jesus
Mat 27:27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers.
Mat 27:28 And they stripped him [Jesus], and put on him a scarlet robe.
Mat 27:29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his [Jesus'] head, and a reed [staff] in his right hand: and they bowed the knee [knelt] before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!
Mat 27:30 And they spit upon him [Jesus], and took the reed [staff], and smote him [struck him repeatedly] on the head.
Mat 27:31 And after that they had mocked him [Jesus], they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment [clothes] on him, and led him away to crucify him.
Mat 27:32 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear [carry] his [Jesus'] cross.
~ The Crucifixion
Mat 27:33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
Mat 27:34 They gave him [Jesus] vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink.
Mat 27:35 And they crucified him [Jesus], and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my [Jesus'] garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. [ quoting Psa 22:18 ]
Mat 27:36 And sitting down they watched him [Jesus] there;
Mat 27:37 And set up over his [Jesus'] head his accusation [the charge against him] written, THIS IS JESUS THE KING OF THE JEWS.
Mat 27:38 Then were there two  thieves crucified with him [Jesus], one on the right hand, and another on the left.
Mat 27:39 And they that passed by reviled [hurled insults at] him [Jesus], wagging [shaking] their heads,
Mat 27:40 And saying, Thou [Jesus] that destroyest [are going to destroy] the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
Mat 27:41 Likewise also the chief priests mocking him [Jesus], with the scribes and elders, said,
Mat 27:42 He [Jesus] saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.
Mat 27:43 He [Jesus] trusted in God; let him [God] deliver him now, if he [God] will have him [Jesus]: for he [Jesus] said, I am the Son of God.
Mat 27:44 The thieves also, which were crucified with him [Jesus], cast the same in his teeth [heaped insults on him].
Mat 27:45 Now from the sixth hour [of daylight, about noon] there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour [of daylight, about 3 pm].
~ The Death of Jesus
Mat 27:46 And about the ninth hour [of daylight, about 3 pm] Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? [ quoting Psa 22:1 ]
Mat 27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man [Jesus] calleth for Elias [Elijah].
Mat 27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge [sponge], and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed [stick], and gave him [Jesus] to drink.
Mat 27:49 The rest said, Let be [leave him alone], let us see whether Elias [Elijah] will come to save him [Jesus].
Mat 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost [gave up his spirit].
Mat 27:51 And, behold, the veil [curtain] of the temple was rent [torn] in twain [two] from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent [split];
Mat 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,
Mat 27:53 And came out of the graves after his [Jesus'] resurrection, and went into the holy city [Jerusalem], and appeared unto many.
Mat 27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this [Jesus] was the Son of God.
Mat 27:55 And many women were there beholding [watching from] afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:
Mat 27:56 Among which was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of Zebedee's children.
~ Jesus Is Buried
Mat 27:57 When the even [evening] was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple:
[ Today, our 24-hour days begin at midnight, whereas Hebrew days in the Bible (designated by -Heb) began at the previous sundown (about 6 hours before midnight). Therefore, Friday-Heb night (a 12-hour night), and Friday-Heb day (a 24-hour day), both begin at sundown on Thursday (using today's time).]
[ Thursday-Heb day (crucifixion day) ended at sundown Thursday. Friday-Heb night began at sundown Thursday, so it is now Friday-Heb evening (Thursday evening). Friday-Heb day (evening, night, morning, daytime) is the "high sabbath day" (spoken of in Joh 19:31 ) and is also yet another preparation day, the 24-hour day before the Saturday-Heb sabbath (24-hour day). This Saturday-Heb sabbath begins at sundown Friday. ]
[similar to Mar 15:42-47, Luk 23:50-56, Joh 19:31-42 ] [for full details see Crucifixion & Resurrection QBA ]
Mat 27:58 He went to Pilate, and begged [for] the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered [to him].
[ Since it is already evening (see Mat 27:57 above), after sundown, the 3 days (all or part of 3 24-hour days) and 3 nights (all or part of 3 12-hour nights) that Jesus is "in the heart of the earth [sepulchre, tomb]" (see Mat 12:39-40) doesn't start counting until after sundown on Thursday (crucifixion day). Sometime during the evening (after sundown) on Thursday (using today's time), the counting does begin with Friday-Heb night (part of a 12-hour night, that began at sundown Thursday, night#1), and Friday-Heb day (part of a 24-hour day, that began at sundown Thursday, day#1). ]
[ If we continue counting, we get Saturday-Heb night (a 12-hour night, that began at sundown Friday, night#2), and Saturday-Heb day (a 24-hour day, that began at sundown Friday, day#2), followed by Sunday-Heb night (all or part of a 12-hour night, that began at sundown Saturday, night#3, and night#3 counting ended either with Jesus' resurrection sometime before sunrise, or at sunrise Sunday, if Jesus' resurrection occurred on or after sunrise), and Sunday-Heb day (part of a 24-hour day, that began at sundown Saturday, day#3, and day#3 counting ended with Jesus' resurrection before or after sunrise, Resurrection Sunday). ] [for full details see Crucifixion & Resurrection QBA ]
Mat 27:59 And when Joseph had taken the body [of Jesus], he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,
Mat 27:60 And laid it in his [Joseph's] own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.
Mat 27:61 And there was Mary Magdalene, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.
~ The Guard at the Tomb
Mat 27:62 Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto [went to] Pilate,
[ Refer to Joh 19:31 to establish that this "next day" is likely Friday (not Saturday). John tells us in Joh 19:31 that the next day after the crucifixion day was not a Saturday-Heb sabbath day, but rather a high day sabbath day (that could occur on a Friday-Heb day (that begins at sundown Thursday), with its preparation day being on Thursday-Heb day, crucifixion day). ] [for full details see Crucifixion & Resurrection QBA ]
Mat 27:63 Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver [Jesus] said, while he [Jesus] was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
Mat 27:64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure [secure] until the third day, lest his [Jesus'] disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error [this last deception] shall be worse than the first.
Mat 27:65 Pilate said unto them, Ye have a watch [guard]: go your way, make it as sure [secure] as ye can.
Mat 27:66 So
they went, and made the sepulchre sure [secure], sealing
the stone, and setting a watch [posting the guard].
