|28 Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall
of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment
hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What
accusation bring ye against this man?
30 They answered and said unto him, If he were not
a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge
him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is
not lawful for us to put any man to death:
32 That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which
he spake, signifying what death he should die.
33 Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again,
and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews?
34 Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself,
or did others tell it thee of me?
35 Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and
the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou done?
36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world:
if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I
should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence.
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king
then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I
born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness
unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when
he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them,
I find in him no fault at all.
39 But ye have a custom, that I should release unto
you one at the passover: will ye therefore that I release unto you the
King of the Jews?
40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man,
but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber.
1 Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.
2 And the soldiers platted a crown of thorns, and
put it on his head, and they put on him a purple robe,
3 And said, Hail, King of the Jews! and they smote
him with their hands.
4 Pilate therefore went forth again, and saith unto
them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no
fault in him.
5 Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns,
and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man!
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw
him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto
them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find
no fault in him.
7 The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by our
law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
8 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he was
the more afraid;
9 And went again into the judgment hall, and saith
unto Jesus, Whence art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer.
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto
me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have
power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at
all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that
delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
12 And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him:
but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Caesar's
friend: whosoever maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar.
13 When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought
Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called
the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 And it was the preparation of the passover, and
about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King!
15 But they cried out, Away with him, away with him,
crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The
chief priests answered, We have no king but
16 Then delivered he him therefore unto them to be
crucified. And they took Jesus, and led him away.
17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place
called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha:
18 Where they crucified him, and two other with him,
on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross.
And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE
20 This title then read many of the Jews: for the
place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was
written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
21 Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate,
Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
22 Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.
