10SoPilatesaid to Him, "You do not speak to me? Do You not know that I haveauthority to release You, and I haveauthority to crucify You?"
11Jesusanswered, "1You would havenoauthorityaover Me, unless it had beengiven you from above ; for thisreason2he who delivered Me to you has the greatersin."12
As a result of thisPilatebmadeefforts to release Him, but the Jewscried out saying, "3If you releasethisMan, you are nofriend of Caesar ; everyone who makeshimself out to be a kingcopposesCaesar."
13Therefore when Pilateheardthesewords, he broughtJesus out, and 4satdown on the judgmentseat at a placecalleddThe Pavement, but 5in eHebrew, Gabbatha.
14Now it was 6the day of preparation for the Passover ; it was about the f7sixthhour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold, 8your King !"
15So they cried out, "9Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!" Pilatesaid to them, "Shall I crucify your King ?" The chiefpriestsanswered, "We havenoking but Caesar."
16So he then10handed Him over to them to be crucified.
1711They tookJesus, therefore, and He went out, g12bearing His owncross, to the place called13the Place of a Skull, which is called14in hHebrew, Golgotha.
18There they crucified Him, and with Him 15twoothermen, one on eitherside, and Jesus in between.
19Pilatealsowrote an inscription and put it on the cross. It was written, "16JESUS THE NAZARENE, 17THE KING OF THE JEWS."
20Thereforemany of the Jewsreadthisinscription, for the placewhereJesus was crucified was near the city ; and it was written18in iHebrew, Latin and in Greek.
