Bible: Lk 23:18-24

23:18 But they all shouted out together, 1 Take this man 2  away! Release Barabbas for us! 23:19 (This 3  was a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection 4  started in the city, and for murder.) 5  23:20 Pilate addressed them once again because he wanted 6  to release Jesus. 23:21 But they kept on shouting, 7 Crucify, crucify 8  him! 23:22 A third time he said to them, “Why? What wrong has he done? I have found him guilty 9  of no crime deserving death. 10  I will therefore flog 11  him and release him.” 23:23 But they were insistent, 12  demanding with loud shouts that he be crucified. And their shouts prevailed. 23:24 So 13  Pilate 14  decided 15  that their demand should be granted.
