PILATE INTERCEDES FOR JESUS. unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before

you, have found no fault in this man touching those 15 things whereof ye accuse him: no, nor yet Herod : for I

sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done 16 unto him. *I will therefore chastise him, and release him.

Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people 'one prisoner, whomsoever they desired. *(For of necessity he must release Lu. xxiii. 17-19. one unto them at the feast.) * And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection. And the multitude crying aloud, began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them. 6 Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? + Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ, — the King of the Jews ? For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.

suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude

that they should ask ? that he should rather release Barabbas unto them, 3 and destroy Jesus.

1 Mat. xxvii. 19, 20. And they cried out all at once, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas :(who for a certain sedition made in the city, and Alk, X.21 ; for murder, was cast into prison.) Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again unto them, ? Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with

JESUS DELIVERED TO BE CRUCIFIED.

193 Jesus which is called Christ ? unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews ? And they cried out again, 'saying, Crucify him; 3 Let him be crucified. And the governor said *unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done ? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. “And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him. 6 When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person : see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. ?And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.

* Lu. xxiii. 22, 3. 6 Mat. xxvii. 24, 5.

And so Pilate, willing to content the people, Mk. xv. 15. 'gave sentence that it should be as they required. Lu, xxiii. 24,

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the 19 The same. cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS. This 20 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. Then said the chief 21 priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of th Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate 22 answered, What I have written, I have written. No. 291.

* Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Mat, xxvii. 35. Mart xv. 24. Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to Jno. xix. 23, 24. every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the

coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not 24 rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, ' which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments * among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did. “And it was the third hour, and they crucified him. Jno. xix. 23. 2 Mt. xxvii.35. (* (raiment,' Jno.) 3 Jno. xix. 24.
