The whole company of them rose up and brought him before Pilate.
They began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man perverting the nation, forbidding paying taxes to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Messiah, a king."
Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Yehudim?" He answered him, "So you say."
Pilate said to the chief Kohanim and the multitudes, "I find no basis for a charge against this man.
But they insisted, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Yehudah, beginning from the Galil even to this place."
But when Pilate heard Galil mentioned, he asked if the man was a Gelili.
