155. Jesus Appears before Pilate Again

        13Pilate then called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, 14and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was perverting the people. After examining him I did not find this man guilty of any of your charges. 15Neither did Herod, for he sent him back to us. Behold, nothing deserving death has been done by him. 16I will therefore chastise him and release him.”
        8And the crowd came up and began to ask Pilate to do as he was wont to do for them. 15Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to release for the crowd any one prisoner whom they wanted. 16And they had then a notorious prisoner, called Barabbas, 19a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection started in the city, and for murder. 17So when they gathered, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release for you, Barabbas or Jesus?”
        11But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have him release for them Barabbas instead. 10Pilate perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up. 18But they all cried out together, “Away with this man, and release to us Barabbas.”
