Bible: Luke 23:1-7

Jesus Brought Before Pilate

23:1 Then 1  the whole group of them rose up and brought Jesus 2  before Pilate. 3  23:2 They 4  began to accuse 5  him, saying, “We found this man subverting 6  our nation, forbidding 7  us to pay the tribute tax 8  to Caesar 9  and claiming that he himself is Christ, 10  a king.” 23:3 So 11  Pilate asked Jesus, 12 Are you the king 13  of the Jews?” He replied, “You say so.” 14  23:4 Then 15  Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, “I find no basis for an accusation 16  against this man.” 23:5 But they persisted 17  in saying, “He incites 18  the people by teaching throughout all Judea. It started in Galilee and ended up here! 19 

Jesus Brought Before Herod

23:6 Now when Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. 23:7 When 20  he learned that he was from Herod’s jurisdiction, 21  he sent him over to Herod, 22  who also happened to be in Jerusalem 23  at that time.
