Herod was very glad to see Jesus; for a long time he had wanted to see Him, because he had heard about Him and was hoping to see some miracle performed by Him.
9
So he kept asking Him questions, but Jesus did not answer him.
10
The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing Him.
11
Then Herod, with his soldiers, treated Him with contempt, mocked Him, dressed Him in a brilliant robe, and sent Him back to Pilate.
12
That very day Herod and Pilate became friends. Previously, they had been hostile toward each other.

Matthew 2:13-16
13
After they were gone, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, "Get up! Take the child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. For Herod is about to search for the child to destroy Him."
14
So he got up, took the child and His mother during the night, and escaped to Egypt.
15
He stayed there until Herod's death, so that what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet might be fulfilled: Out of Egypt I called My Son.
16
Then Herod, when he saw that he had been outwitted by the wise men, flew into a rage. He gave orders to massacre all the male children in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, in keeping with the time he had learned from the wise men.
Luke 13:31-33
31
At that time some Pharisees came and told Him, "Go, get out of here! Herod wants to kill You!"
32
He said to them, "Go tell that fox, 'Look! I'm driving out demons and performing healings today and tomorrow, and on the third day I will complete My work.'
33
Yet I must travel today, tomorrow, and the next day, because it is not possible for a prophet to perish outside of Jerusalem!
Luke 23:7-12
7
Finding that He was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem during those days.
8
Herod was very glad to see Jesus; for a long time he had wanted to see Him, because he had heard about Him and was hoping to see some miracle performed by Him.
9
So he kept asking Him questions, but Jesus did not answer him.
10
The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing Him.
11
Then Herod, with his soldiers, treated Him with contempt, mocked Him, dressed Him in a brilliant robe, and sent Him back to Pilate.
12
That very day Herod and Pilate became friends. Previously, they had been hostile toward each other.
Pontius Pilate
Acts 3:13
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him.
Matthew 27:2
After tying Him up, they led Him away and handed Him over to Pilate, the governor.
Matthew 27:11-36
11
Now Jesus stood before the governor. "Are You the King of the Jews?" the governor asked Him. Jesus answered, "You have said it."
12
And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He didn't answer.
13
Then Pilate said to Him, "Don't You hear how much they are testifying against You?"
14
But He didn't answer him on even one charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed.
15
At the festival the governor's custom was to release to the crowd a prisoner they wanted.
16
At that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas.
17
So when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, "Who is it you want me to release for you-- Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Messiah?"
18
For he knew they had handed Him over because of envy.
19
While he was sitting on the judge's bench, his wife sent word to him, "Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for today I've suffered terribly in a dream because of Him!"
20
The chief priests and the elders, however, persuaded the crowds to ask for Barabbas and to execute Jesus.
21
The governor asked them, "Which of the two do you want me to release for you?" "Barabbas!" they answered.
22
Pilate asked them, "What should I do then with Jesus, who is called Messiah?" They all answered, "Crucify Him!"
23
Then he said, "Why? What has He done wrong?" But they kept shouting, "Crucify Him!" all the more.
24
When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that a riot was starting instead, he took some water, washed his hands in front of the crowd, and said, "I am innocent of this man's blood. See to it yourselves!"
25
All the people answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!"
26
Then he released Barabbas to them. But after having Jesus flogged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
27
Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into headquarters and gathered the whole company around Him.
28
They stripped Him and dressed Him in a scarlet robe.
29
They twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and placed a reed in His right hand. And they knelt down before Him and mocked Him: "Hail, King of the Jews!"
30
Then they spit at Him, took the reed, and kept hitting Him on the head.
31
When they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the robe, put His clothes on Him, and led Him away to crucify Him.
32
As they were going out, they found a Cyrenian man named Simon. They forced this man to carry His cross.
33
When they came to a place called Golgotha (which means Skull Place),
34
they gave Him wine mixed with gall to drink. But when He tasted it, He would not drink it.
35
After crucifying Him they divided His clothes by casting lots.
36
Then they sat down and were guarding Him there.
Mark 15:1-28
1
As soon as it was morning, the chief priests had a meeting with the elders, scribes, and the whole Sanhedrin. After tying Jesus up, they led Him away and handed Him over to Pilate.
2
So Pilate asked Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You have said it."
3
And the chief priests began to accuse Him of many things.
4
Then Pilate questioned Him again, "Are You not answering anything? Look how many things they are accusing You of!"
5
But Jesus still did not answer anything, so Pilate was amazed.
6
At the festival it was Pilate's custom to release for the people a prisoner they requested.
7
There was one named Barabbas, who was in prison with rebels who had committed murder during the rebellion.
8
The crowd came up and began to ask [Pilate] to do for them as was his custom.
9
So Pilate answered them, "Do you want me to release the King of the Jews for you?"
10
For he knew it was because of envy that the chief priests had handed Him over.
11
But the chief priests stirred up the crowd so that he would release Barabbas to them instead.
12
Pilate asked them again, "Then what do you want me to do with the One you call the King of the Jews?"
13
Again they shouted, "Crucify Him!"
14
Then Pilate said to them, "Why? What has He done wrong?" But they shouted, "Crucify Him!" all the more.
15
Then, willing to gratify the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. And after having Jesus flogged, he handed Him over to be crucified.
16
Then the soldiers led Him away into the courtyard (that is, headquarters) and called the whole company together.
17
They dressed Him in a purple robe, twisted together a crown of thorns, and put it on Him.
18
And they began to salute Him, "Hail, King of the Jews!"
19
They kept hitting Him on the head with a reed and spitting on Him. Getting down on their knees, they were paying Him homage.
20
When they had mocked Him, they stripped Him of the purple robe, put His clothes on Him, and led Him out to crucify Him.
21
They forced a man coming in from the country, who was passing by, to carry Jesus' cross. He was Simon, a Cyrenian, the father of Alexander and Rufus.
22
And they brought Jesus to the place called Golgotha (which means Skull Place).
23
They tried to give Him wine mixed with myrrh, but He did not take it.
24
Then they crucified Him and divided His clothes, casting lots for them to decide what each would get.
25
Now it was nine in the morning when they crucified Him.
26
The inscription of the charge written against Him was THE KING OF THE JEWS
27
They crucified two criminals with Him, one on His right and one on His left.
28
[[So the Scripture was fulfilled that says: And He was counted among outlaws.]]
Luke 18:31-33
31
Then He took the Twelve aside and told them, "Listen! We are going up to Jerusalem. Everything that is written through the prophets about the Son of Man will be accomplished.
32
For He will be handed over to the Gentiles, and He will be mocked, insulted, spit on;
33
and after they flog Him, they will kill Him, and He will rise on the third day."
Luke 23:13-38
13
Pilate called together the chief priests, the leaders, and the people,
14
and said to them, "You have brought me this man as one who subverts the people. But in fact, after examining Him in your presence, I have found no grounds to charge this man with those things you accuse Him of.
15
Neither has Herod, because he sent Him back to us. Clearly, He has done nothing to deserve death.
16
Therefore I will have Him whipped and [then] release Him."
17
[[For according to the festival he had to release someone to them.]]
18
Then they all cried out together, "Take this man away! Release Barabbas to us!"
19
(He had been thrown into prison for a rebellion that had taken place in the city, and for murder.)
20
Pilate, wanting to release Jesus, addressed them again,
21
but they kept shouting, "Crucify! Crucify Him!"
22
A third time he said to them, "Why? What has this man done wrong? I have found in Him no grounds for the death penalty. Therefore I will have Him whipped and [then] release Him."
23
But they kept up the pressure, demanding with loud voices that He be crucified. And their voices won out.
24
So Pilate decided to grant their demand
25
and released the one they were asking for, who had been thrown into prison for rebellion and murder. But he handed Jesus over to their will.
26
As they led Him away, they seized Simon, a Cyrenian, who was coming in from the country, and laid the cross on him to carry behind Jesus.
27
A great multitude of the people followed Him, including women who were mourning and lamenting Him.
28
But turning to them, Jesus said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for Me, but weep for yourselves and your children.
29
Look, the days are coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed!'
30
Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us!' and to the hills, 'Cover us!'
31
For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?"
32
Two others-- criminals-- were also led away to be executed with Him.
33
When they arrived at the place called The Skull, they crucified Him there, along with the criminals, one on the right and one on the left.
34
[[Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing."]] And they divided His clothes and cast lots.
35
The people stood watching, and even the leaders kept scoffing: "He saved others; let Him save Himself if this is God's Messiah, the Chosen One!"
36
The soldiers also mocked Him. They came offering Him sour wine
37
and said, "If You are the King of the Jews, save Yourself!"
38
An inscription was above Him: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS
John 19:1-24
1
Then Pilate took Jesus and had Him flogged.
2
The soldiers also twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and threw a purple robe around Him.
3
And they repeatedly came up to Him and said, "Hail, King of the Jews!" and were slapping His face.
4
Pilate went outside again and said to them, "Look, I'm bringing Him outside to you to let you know I find no grounds for charging Him."
5
Then Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. Pilate said to them, "Here is the man!"
6
When the chief priests and the temple police saw Him, they shouted, "Crucify! Crucify!" Pilate responded, "Take Him and crucify Him yourselves, for I find no grounds for charging Him."
7
"We have a law," the Jews replied to him, "and according to that law He must die, because He made Himself the Son of God."
8
When Pilate heard this statement, he was more afraid than ever.
9
He went back into the headquarters and asked Jesus, "Where are You from?" But Jesus did not give him an answer.
10
So Pilate said to Him, "You're not talking to me? Don't You know that I have the authority to release You and the authority to crucify You?"
11
"You would have no authority over Me at all," Jesus answered him, "if it hadn't been given you from above. This is why the one who handed Me over to you has the greater sin."
12
From that moment Pilate made every effort to release Him. But the Jews shouted, "If you release this man, you are not Caesar's friend. Anyone who makes himself a king opposes Caesar!"
13
When Pilate heard these words, he brought Jesus outside. He sat down on the judge's bench in a place called the Stone Pavement (but in Hebrew Gabbatha).
14
It was the preparation day for the Passover, and it was about six in the morning. Then he told the Jews, "Here is your king!"
15
But they shouted, "Take Him away! Take Him away! Crucify Him!" Pilate said to them, "Should I crucify your king?" "We have no king but Caesar!" the chief priests answered.
16
So then, because of them, he handed Him over to be crucified. Therefore they took Jesus away.
17
Carrying His own cross, He went out to what is called Skull Place, which in Hebrew is called Golgotha.
18
There they crucified Him and two others with Him, one on either side, with Jesus in the middle.
19
Pilate also had a sign lettered and put on the cross. The inscription was: JESUS THE NAZARENE THE KING OF THE JEWS
20
Many of the Jews read this sign, because the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and it was written in Hebrew, Latin, and Greek.
21
So the chief priests of the Jews said to Pilate, "Don't write, 'The King of the Jews,' but that He said, 'I am the King of the Jews.'"
22
Pilate replied, "What I have written, I have written."
23
When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took His clothes and divided them into four parts, a part for each soldier. They also took the tunic, which was seamless, woven in one piece from the top.
24
So they said to one another, "Let's not tear it, but toss for it, to see who gets it." [They did this] to fulfill the Scripture that says: They divided My clothes among themselves, and they cast lots for My clothing. And this is what the soldiers did.
John 19:34-24

Isaiah 49:7
This is what the LORD, the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One says to one who is despised, to one abhorred by people, to a servant of rulers: "Kings will see and stand up, and princes will bow down, because of the LORD, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel-- and He has chosen you."
Isaiah 53:3
He was despised and rejected by men, a man of suffering who knew what sickness was. He was like one people turned away from; He was despised, and we didn't value Him.
Zechariah 11:7
So I shepherded the flock intended for slaughter, the afflicted of the flock. I took two staffs, calling one Favor and the other Union, and I shepherded the flock.
Zechariah 11:8
In one month I got rid of three shepherds. I became impatient with them, and they also detested me.
Matthew 20:18
"Listen! We are going up to Jerusalem. The Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn Him to death.
Matthew 20:19
Then they will hand Him over to the Gentiles to be mocked, flogged, and crucified, and He will be resurrected on the third day."
Matthew 21:28
"But what do you think? A man had two sons. He went to the first and said, 'My son, go, work in the vineyard today.'
Matthew 23:37
"Jerusalem, Jerusalem! The city who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her. How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, yet you were not willing!
Matthew 26:3
Then the chief priests and the elders of the people assembled in the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
Matthew 26:4
and they conspired to arrest Jesus in a treacherous way and kill Him.
Matthew 26:59-68
59
The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false testimony against Jesus so they could put Him to death.
60
But they could not find any, even though many false witnesses came forward. Finally, two who came forward
61
stated, "This man said, 'I can demolish God's sanctuary and rebuild it in three days.'"
62
The high priest then stood up and said to Him, "Don't You have an answer to what these men are testifying against You?"
63
But Jesus kept silent. Then the high priest said to Him, "By the living God I place You under oath: tell us if You are the Messiah, the Son of God!"
64
"You have said it," Jesus told him. "But I tell you, in the future you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming on the clouds of heaven."
65
Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "He has blasphemed! Why do we still need witnesses? Look, now you've heard the blasphemy!
66
What is your decision?" They answered, "He deserves death!"
67
Then they spit in His face and beat Him; others slapped Him
68
and said, "Prophesy to us, Messiah! Who hit You?"
Matthew 27:25
All the people answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!"
Matthew 27:40-43
40
and saying, "The One who would demolish the sanctuary and rebuild it in three days, save Yourself! If You are the Son of God, come down from the cross!"
41
In the same way the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked Him and said,
42
"He saved others, but He cannot save Himself! He is the King of Israel! Let Him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in Him.
43
He has put His trust in God; let God rescue Him now-- if He wants Him! For He said, 'I am God's Son.'"
Mark 10:33
"Listen! We are going up to Jerusalem. The Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn Him to death. Then they will hand Him over to the Gentiles,
Mark 14:1
After two days it was the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread. The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a treacherous way to arrest and kill Him.
Mark 14:2
"Not during the festival," they said, "or there may be rioting among the people."
Mark 14:43-65
43
While He was still speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, suddenly arrived. With him was a mob, with swords and clubs, from the chief priests, the scribes, and the elders.
44
His betrayer had given them a signal. "The One I kiss," he said, "He's the One; arrest Him and take Him away under guard."
45
So when he came, he went right up to Him and said, "Rabbi!"-- and kissed Him.
46
Then they took hold of Him and arrested Him.
47
And one of those who stood by drew his sword, struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his ear.
48
But Jesus said to them, "Have you come out with swords and clubs, as though I were a criminal, to capture Me?
49
Every day I was among you, teaching in the temple complex, and you didn't arrest Me. But the Scriptures must be fulfilled."
50
Then they all deserted Him and ran away.
51
Now a certain young man, having a linen cloth wrapped around his naked body, was following Him. They caught hold of him,
52
but he left the linen cloth behind and ran away naked.
53
They led Jesus away to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders, and the scribes convened.
54
Peter followed Him at a distance, right into the high priest's courtyard. He was sitting with the temple police, warming himself by the fire.
55
The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for testimony against Jesus to put Him to death, but they could find none.
56
For many were giving false testimony against Him, but the testimonies did not agree.
57
Some stood up and were giving false testimony against Him, stating,
58
"We heard Him say, 'I will demolish this sanctuary made by [human] hands, and in three days I will build another not made by hands.'"
59
Yet their testimony did not agree even on this.
60
Then the high priest stood up before them all and questioned Jesus, "Don't You have an answer to what these men are testifying against You?"
61
But He kept silent and did not answer anything. Again the high priest questioned Him, "Are You the Messiah, the Son of the Blessed One?"
62
"I am," said Jesus, "and all of you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of the Power and coming with the clouds of heaven."
63
Then the high priest tore his robes and said, "Why do we still need witnesses?
64
You have heard the blasphemy! What is your decision?" And they all condemned Him to be deserving of death.
65
Then some began to spit on Him, to blindfold Him, and to beat Him, saying, "Prophesy!" Even the temple police took Him and slapped Him.
Mark 15:1-3
1
As soon as it was morning, the chief priests had a meeting with the elders, scribes, and the whole Sanhedrin. After tying Jesus up, they led Him away and handed Him over to Pilate.
2
So Pilate asked Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You have said it."
3
And the chief priests began to accuse Him of many things.
Mark 15:31-3
Luke 9:22
saying, "The Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, chief priests, and scribes, be killed, and be raised the third day."
Luke 20:13-19
13
"Then the owner of the vineyard said, 'What should I do? I will send my beloved son. Perhaps they will respect him.'
14
"But when the tenant farmers saw him, they discussed it among themselves and said, 'This is the heir. Let's kill him, so the inheritance will be ours!'
15
So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. "Therefore, what will the owner of the vineyard do to them?
16
He will come and destroy those farmers and give the vineyard to others." But when they heard this they said, "No-- never!"
17
But He looked at them and said, "Then what is the meaning of this Scripture: The stone that the builders rejected-- this has become the cornerstone?
18
Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and if it falls on anyone, it will grind him to powder!"
19
Then the scribes and the chief priests looked for a way to get their hands on Him that very hour, because they knew He had told this parable against them, but they feared the people.
Luke 22:2-6
2
The chief priests and the scribes were looking for a way to put Him to death, because they were afraid of the people.
3
Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, who was numbered among the Twelve.
4
He went away and discussed with the chief priests and temple police how he could hand Him over to them.
5
They were glad and agreed to give him silver.
6
So he accepted [the offer] and started looking for a good opportunity to betray Him to them when the crowd was not present.
Luke 22:47-52
47
While He was still speaking, suddenly a mob was there, and one of the Twelve named Judas was leading them. He came near Jesus to kiss Him,
48
but Jesus said to him, "Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?"
49
When those around Him saw what was going to happen, they asked, "Lord, should we strike with the sword?"
50
Then one of them struck the high priest's slave and cut off his right ear.
51
But Jesus responded, "No more of this!" And touching his ear, He healed him.
52
Then Jesus said to the chief priests, temple police, and the elders who had come for Him, "Have you come out with swords and clubs as if I were a criminal?
Luke 22:63-71
63
The men who were holding Jesus started mocking and beating Him.
64
After blindfolding Him, they kept asking, "Prophesy! Who hit You?"
65
And they were saying many other blasphemous things against Him.
66
When daylight came, the elders of the people, both the chief priests and the scribes, convened and brought Him before their Sanhedrin.
67
They said, "If You are the Messiah, tell us." But He said to them, "If I do tell you, you will not believe.
68
And if I ask you, you will not answer.
69
But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the Power of God."
70
They all asked, "Are You, then, the Son of God?" And He said to them, "You say that I am."
71
"Why do we need any more testimony," they said, "since we've heard it ourselves from His mouth?"
Luke 23:1-5
1
Then their whole assembly rose up and brought Him before Pilate.
2
They began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man subverting our nation, opposing payment of taxes to Caesar, and saying that He Himself is the Messiah, a King."
3
So Pilate asked Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" He answered him, "You have said it."
4
Pilate then told the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no grounds for charging this man."
5
But they kept insisting, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee where He started even to here."
John 1:11
He came to His own, and His own people did not receive Him.
John 18:1-14
1
After Jesus had said these things, He went out with His disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, and He and His disciples went into it.
2
Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place, because Jesus often met there with His disciples.
3
So Judas took a company of soldiers and some temple police from the chief priests and the Pharisees and came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.
4
Then Jesus, knowing everything that was about to happen to Him, went out and said to them, "Who is it you're looking for?"
5
"Jesus the Nazarene," they answered. "I am He," Jesus told them. Judas, who betrayed Him, was also standing with them.
6
When He told them, "I am He," they stepped back and fell to the ground.
7
Then He asked them again, "Who is it you're looking for?" "Jesus the Nazarene," they said.
8
"I told you I am [He]," Jesus replied. "So if you're looking for Me, let these men go."
9
This was to fulfill the words He had said: "I have not lost one of those You have given Me."
10
Then Simon Peter, who had a sword, drew it, struck the high priest's slave, and cut off his right ear. (The slave's name was Malchus.)
11
At that, Jesus said to Peter, "Sheathe your sword! Am I not to drink the cup the Father has given Me?"
12
Then the company of soldiers, the commander, and the Jewish temple police arrested Jesus and tied Him up.
13
First they led Him to Annas, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas, who was high priest that year.
14
Caiaphas was the one who had advised the Jews that it was advantageous that one man should die for the people.
John 18:19-24
19
The high priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and about His teaching.
20
"I have spoken openly to the world," Jesus answered him. "I have always taught in the synagogue and in the temple complex, where all the Jews congregate, and I haven't spoken anything in secret.
21
Why do you question Me? Question those who heard what I told them. Look, they know what I said."
22
When He had said these things, one of the temple police standing by slapped Jesus, saying, "Is this the way you answer the high priest?"
23
"If I have spoken wrongly," Jesus answered him, "give evidence about the wrong; but if rightly, why do you hit Me?"
24
Then Annas sent Him bound to Caiaphas the high priest.
John 18:28-40
28
Then they took Jesus from Caiaphas to the governor's headquarters. It was early morning. They did not enter the headquarters themselves; otherwise they would be defiled and unable to eat the Passover.
29
Then Pilate came out to them and said, "What charge do you bring against this man?"
30
They answered him, "If this man weren't a criminal, we wouldn't have handed Him over to you."
31
So Pilate told them, "Take Him yourselves and judge Him according to your law." "It's not legal for us to put anyone to death," the Jews declared.
32
They said this so that Jesus' words might be fulfilled signifying what sort of death He was going to die.
33
Then Pilate went back into the headquarters, summoned Jesus, and said to Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?"
34
Jesus answered, "Are you asking this on your own, or have others told you about Me?"
35
"I'm not a Jew, am I?" Pilate replied. "Your own nation and the chief priests handed You over to me. What have You done?"
36
"My kingdom is not of this world," said Jesus. "If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I wouldn't be handed over to the Jews. As it is, My kingdom does not have its origin here."
37
"You are a king then?" Pilate asked. "You say that I'm a king," Jesus replied. "I was born for this, and I have come into the world for this: to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to My voice."
38
"What is truth?" said Pilate. After he had said this, he went out to the Jews again and told them, "I find no grounds for charging Him.
39
You have a custom that I release one [prisoner] to you at the Passover. So, do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"
40
They shouted back, "Not this man, but Barabbas!" Now Barabbas was a revolutionary.
John 19:15
But they shouted, "Take Him away! Take Him away! Crucify Him!" Pilate said to them, "Should I crucify your king?" "We have no king but Caesar!" the chief priests answered.
