They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate.
2 Pilate questioned Him, "Are You the King of the Jews?" And He answered him, "It is as you say." 2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
3 The chief priests began to accuse Him harshly. 3 The chief priests accused him of many things.
4 Then Pilate questioned Him again, saying, "Do You not answer? See how many charges they bring against You!" 4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of."
5 But Jesus made no further answer; so Pilate was amazed. 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.

10 For he was aware that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy. 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.
11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to ask him to release Barabbas for them instead. 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.
12 Answering again, Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?" 12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them.

14 But Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they shouted all the more, "Crucify Him!" 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
