John-19:- Jews incited Pilate that Christ Jesus proclaims to be a King but when Pilate understood the nature of His Royal Kingdom, then he knew the hypocrisy of the Jews who want the Blood of Christ Jesus on the Romans and not the Jews. But Pilate washed his hands of Jesus' affairs in the presence of Sun, God, that I have nothing to do with the death of Christ Jesus- 1. John 19
Jesus Sentenced to Be Crucified
1 Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged. 2 The soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head. They clothed him in a purple robe 3 and went up to him again and again, saying, â€œHail, king of the Jews!â€ And they slapped him in the face.
4 Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews gathered there, â€œLook, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him.â€ 5 When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, â€œHere is the man!â€
6 As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, â€œCrucify! Crucify!â€
But Pilate answered, â€œYou take him and crucify him. As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him.â€
7 The Jewish leaders insisted, â€œWe have a law, and according to that law he must die, because he claimed to be the Son of God.â€
8 When Pilate heard this, he was even more afraid, 9 and he went back inside the palace. â€œWhere do you come from?â€ he asked Jesus, but Jesus gave him no answer. 10 â€œDo you refuse to speak to me?â€ Pilate said. â€œDonâ€™t you realize I have power either to free you or to crucify you?â€
11 Jesus answered, â€œYou would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.â€
12 From then on, Pilate tried to set Jesus free, but the Jewish leaders kept shouting, â€œIf you let this man go, you are no friend of Caesar. Anyone who claims to be a king opposes Caesar.â€
13 When Pilate heard this, he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judgeâ€™s seat at a place known as the Stone Pavement (which in Aramaic is Gabbatha). 14 It was the day of Preparation of the Passover; it was about noon.
â€œHere is your king,â€ Pilate said to the Jews.
15 But they shouted, â€œTake him away! Take him away! Crucify him!â€
â€œShall I crucify your king?â€ Pilate asked.
â€œWe have no king but Caesar,â€ the chief priests answered.
16 Finally Pilate handed him over to them to be crucified.
