The Story of Jesus
Immediately, in 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 delivered Him to Pilate. Then Pilate asked Jesus, "Are You the King of the
Jesus answered and said to him, "It is as you say."
And the chief priests accused Jesus of many things, but He answered nothing. Then Pilate
asked Jesus again, saying, "Do You answer nothing? See how many things they testify against
But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled.
Now at 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, crying aloud, began
to ask Pilate to do what he had always done for them. But Pilate answered them saying, "Do you
want me to release to you the King of the Jews?" For he knew that the chief priests had handed
Jesus over because of envy. But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather
release Barabbas to them. Pilate answered and said to them again, "What then do you want me to
do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?"
So they cried out again, "Crucify Him!" Then Pilate said to
them, "Why what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more, "Crucify Him!" So Pilate,
wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had
scourged Him to be crucified.
