" am." Then the high priest rent his clothes, 2 Kin. 18. 65 saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now 66 ye have heard his blasphemy. What think ye? They answered and said, 'He is guilty of death. Lev. 24. L.22.63 And the men that held Jesus mocked him, Mk. 14. and smote him. And some began to spit on 65 him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, M". 26. and to say unto him, 3 Prophesy unto us, thou 68 Christ, who is he that smote thee? And many L. 22.65 other things blasphemously spake they against him.
133. Jesus is taken before Pilate.
WHEN the morning was come, a all the chief Ps. 2. 2. priests and elders of the people took counsel 2 against Jesus to put him to death: and when J. 18. 28 they had bound him, they led him away from M". 27.

unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would 31 not have delivered him up unto thee. Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him 3 Divine. C. 4 præto

he should die. And they began to accuse him, L. 23. Acts 17. saying, We found this fellow perverting the 2 nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Cæsar, saying that he himself is Christ a king. Then J. 18. Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and 33 called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the King of the Jews? Jesus answered him, "Say-34 "est thou this thing of thyself, or did others "tell it thee of me?" Pilate answered, Am I 35 a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief priests have delivered thee unto me: what hast thou 1 Tim. 6. done? Jesus answered, " My kingdom is not 36 "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." Pilate there- 37 fore 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 1 John 3. " is of the truth heareth my voice." Pilate 38 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. And they were the more fierce, saying, He L. 23. stirreth up the people, teaching throughout all 5 Jewry, beginning from Galilee to this place.

134. Pilate sends Jesus to Herod.
WHEN Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whe- A. D. 33. 6, 7 ther the man were a Galilæan. And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself 8 also was at Jerusalem at that time. And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by 9 him. Then he questioned with him in many 10 words; but he answered him nothing. And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently 11 accused him. And Herod with his men of war a Is. 53. 3. set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed
him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to

Now at that feast the governor was wont to 15 release unto the people a prisoner, whom they M. 15. would. And there was one named Barabbas, 7 which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder 8 in the insurrection. And the multitude crying 2 he has done nothing to deserve death. C.
A. D. 33. aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever M*. 15. done unto them. But Pilate answered them, 9
saying, Whom will ye that I release unto you? M". 27. Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ? For 17, 18 he knew that for envy they had delivered him. When he was set down on the judgment seat, 19 his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because aActs 3.14. of him. But the chief priests and elders per- 20 suaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governor an- 21 swered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What 22 shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. L. 23. And he said unto them the third time, Why, 21, 22 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 cried out the more M*. 15. exceedingly, Crucify him.
136. Christ is scourged, crowned with thorns, and
beaten; and is led to be crucified.
THEN Pilate therefore took Jesus, and J. 19.1 scourged him. And the soldiers of the governor M. 27. took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered 27 unto him the whole band of soldiers. And they 28 stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe. Ps. 69.19. And when they had platted a crown of thorns, 29 Is. 53. 3. they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, king of the b Is. 50.6. Jews! And they spit upon him, and took the 30 reed, and smote him on the head. Pilate there- J. 19. fore went forth again, and saith unto them, 4 Behold, I bring him forth to you, that ye may know that I find no fault in him. Then came 5 Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and

J. 19. the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, A. D. 33. 6 Behold the man! When the chief priests there- Acts 3. fore 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
7 fault in him. The Jews answered him, d Wed Lev. 24. have a law, and by our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he 9 was the more afraid; and went again into the judgment hall, and saith unto Jesus, Whence
art thou? But Jesus gave him no answer. © Is. 53.7. 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 12" unto thee hath the greater sin." And from thenceforth Pilate sought to release him: but the Jews cried out, saying, If thou let this man go, thou art not Cæsar's friend: whosoever Acts 17.7. maketh himself a king speaketh against Cæsar.
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pave14 ment, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. And it was the preparation of the passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, 15 Behold your King! 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 Gen. 49. but Cæsar.
When Pilate saw that he could prevail no- Deut.21. 24 thing, but that rather a tumult was made, he Deut. 19. h took water, and washed his hands before the 10. multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood 1 Kin. 2. 25 of this just person: see ye to it.
