When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe,1 Pilate said to them, "Here is the man!"
As soon as the chief priests and their officials saw him, they shouted, "Crucify! Crucify!" But Pilate answered, "You take him and crucify him.2 As for me, I find no basis for a charge against him."3
