And the whole assembly of them rose up [and] brought him before Pilate.
And they began to accuse him, saying, "We have found this man misleading our nation and forbidding [us] to pay taxes to Caesar, and saying [he] himself is Christ, a king!"
And Pilate asked him, saying, "Are you the king of the Jews?" And he answered him [and] said, "You say [so]."
So Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no basis for an accusation against this man.
But they insisted, saying, "He incites the people, teaching throughout the whole of Judea and beginning from Galilee as far as here."
Now [when] Pilate heard [this], he asked if the man was a Galilean.
