Pilate Tries Jesus

Matt. 27:1, 2, 11–23; Luke 23:1–5, 13–23; John 18:28–19:15

15 Immediately, ain the morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council; and they bound Jesus, led Him away, and bdelivered Him to Pilate. cThen Pilate asked Him, “Are You the King of the Jews?”

He answered and said to him, It is as you say.”

And the chief priests accused Him of many things, but He danswered nothing. eThen Pilate asked Him again, saying, “Do You answer nothing? See how many things 1they testify against You!” fBut Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.

Now gat the feast he was accustomed to releasing one prisoner to them, whomever they requested. And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion. Then the multitude, 2crying aloud, began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them. But Pilate answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.

11 But hthe chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them. 12 Pilate answered and said to them again, “What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the iKing of the Jews?”

13 So they cried out again, “Crucify Him!”

14 Then Pilate said to them, “Why, jwhat evil has He done?”

But they cried out all the more, “Crucify Him!”

Jesus is Beaten

Matt. 27:26–34; Luke 23:24–32; John 19:16–22

15 kSo Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be lcrucified.
