Then the entire assembly stood up and took him to Pilate.
They began to accuse Jesus by saying, "We found that he stirs up trouble among our people: He keeps them from paying taxes to the emperor, and he says that he is Christ, a king."
Pilate asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "Yes, I am," Jesus answered.
Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowd, "I can't find this man guilty of any crime."
The priests and the crowd became more forceful. They said, "He stirs up the people throughout Judea with his teachings. He started in Galilee and has come here."
When Pilate heard that, he asked if the man was from Galilee.
When Pilate found out that he was, he sent Jesus to Herod. Herod ruled Galilee and was in Jerusalem at that time.
