Bible: Luke 23:20-25

23:20 Pilate addressed them once again because he wanted 1  to release Jesus. 23:21 But they kept on shouting, 2 Crucify, crucify 3  him! 23:22 A third time he said to them, “Why? What wrong has he done? I have found him guilty 4  of no crime deserving death. 5  I will therefore flog 6  him and release him.” 23:23 But they were insistent, 7  demanding with loud shouts that he be crucified. And their shouts prevailed. 23:24 So 8  Pilate 9  decided 10  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 11  to their will. 12
