Bible: Luke 23:13-25

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. 23:24 So 22  Pilate 23  decided 24  that their demand should be granted. 23:25 He released the man they asked for, who had been thrown in prison for insurrection and murder. But he handed Jesus over 25  to their will. 26
