Bible: Jn 19:6-11

19:6 When the chief priests and their officers saw him, they shouted out, “Crucify 1  him! Crucify him!” 2  Pilate said, 3 You take him and crucify him! 4  Certainly 5  I find no reason for an accusation 6  against him! 19:7 The Jewish leaders 7  replied, 8 We have a law, 9  and according to our law he ought to die, because he claimed to be the Son of God! 10 

19:8 When Pilate heard what they said, 11  he was more afraid than ever, 12  19:9 and he went back into the governor’s residence 13  and said to Jesus, “Where do you come from?” But Jesus gave him no answer. 19:10 So Pilate said, 14 Do you refuse to speak to me? Don’t you know I have the authority 15  to release you, and to crucify you? 16  19:11 Jesus replied, “You would have no authority 17  over me at all, unless it was given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you 18  is guilty of greater sin.” 19
