The Jewsanswered him, "1We have a law, and by that law He ought to diebecause He 2madeHimself out to be the Son of God."
8ThereforewhenPilateheardthisstatement, he was even moreafraid ;
and he 3entered into the aPraetoriumagain and said to Jesus, "Where are You from?" But 4Jesusgave him noanswer.
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, "5You would havenoauthoritybover Me, unless it had beengiven you from above ; for thisreason6he who delivered Me to you has the greatersin."12
As a result of thisPilatecmadeefforts to release Him, but the Jewscried out saying, "7If you releasethisMan, you are nofriend of Caesar ; everyone who makeshimself out to be a kingdopposesCaesar."
13Therefore when Pilateheardthesewords, he broughtJesus out, and 8satdown on the judgmentseat at a placecalledeThe Pavement, but 9in fHebrew, Gabbatha.
14Now it was 10the day of preparation for the Passover ; it was about the g11sixthhour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold, 12your King !"
15So they cried out, "13Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him!" Pilatesaid to them, "Shall I crucify your King ?" The chiefpriestsanswered, "We havenoking but Caesar."
16So he then14handed Him over to them to be crucified.
1715They tookJesus, therefore, and He went out, h16bearing His owncross, to the place called17the Place of a Skull, which is called18in iHebrew, Golgotha.
