Matt 27:23-27

23Then he asked, “Why, what evil has he done?” But they shouted all the more, “Let him be crucified!”Pilate Hands Jesus over to Be Crucified 24So when Pilate saw that he could do nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took some water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of this man's blood; see to it yourselves.”25Then the people as a whole answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!”26So he released Barabbas for them; and after flogging Jesus, he handed him over to be crucified.The Soldiers Mock Jesus 27Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor's headquarters, and they gathered the whole cohort around him.
