Bible: Luke 23:13-23
Jesus Brought Before the Crowd
23:13 Then 1 Pilate called together the chief priests, the 2 rulers, and the people, 23:14 and said to them, “You brought me this man as one who was misleading 3 the people. When I examined him before you, I 4 did not find this man guilty 5 of anything you accused him of doing. 23:15 Neither did Herod, for he sent him back to us. Look, he has done nothing 6 deserving death. 7 23:16 I will therefore have him flogged 8 and release him.”23:17 [[EMPTY]] 9
23:18 But they all shouted out together, 10 “Take this man 11 away! Release Barabbas for us!” 23:19 (This 12 was a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection 13 started in the city, and for murder.) 14 23:20 Pilate addressed them once again because he wanted 15 to release Jesus. 23:21 But they kept on shouting, 16 “Crucify, crucify 17 him!” 23:22 A third time he said to them, “Why? What wrong has he done? I have found him guilty 18 of no crime deserving death. 19 I will therefore flog 20 him and release him.” 23:23 But they were insistent, 21 demanding with loud shouts that he be crucified. And their shouts prevailed.
