The Life and Teachings
of Jesus
A Restatement of the Gospels

155. Jesus Appears before Pilate Again (continued)

        19While he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, “Have nothing to do with this innocent man, for I have suffered much over him in a dream last night.”
        20Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the people to ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. 20Pilate addressed them once more, desiring to release Jesus: 12“Then what shall I do with the man whom you call the King of the Jews?”
        21But they shouted out, “Crucify him, crucify him!”
        14And Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has he done?”
        They shouted all the more, “Crucify him.”
        21The governor again said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release for you?”
        And they said, “Barabbas.”
        22Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Jesus?”
        They all said, “Let him be crucified.”
