GW 1 Early in the morning the chief priests immediately came to a decision with the leaders and the scribes. The whole Jewish council decided to tie Jesus up, lead him away, and hand him over to Pilate. NIV 1 Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate.

Look how many accusations they're bringing against you!" NIV 4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of." GW 5 But Jesus no longer answered anything, so Pilate was surprised. NIV 5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed. GW 6 At every Passover festival, Pilate would free one prisoner whom the people asked for. NIV 6 Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested. GW 7 There was a man named Barabbas in prison. He was with some rebels who had committed murder during a riot.

NIV 8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did. GW 9 Pilate answered them, "Do you want me to free the king of the Jews for you?" NIV 9 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate, GW 10 Pilate knew that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him because they were jealous. NIV 10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him. GW 11 The chief priests stirred up the crowd so that Pilate would free Barabbas for them instead. NIV 11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead. GW 12 So Pilate again asked them, "Then what should I do with the king of the Jews?" NIV 12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them. GW 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted back. NIV 13 "Crucify him!" they shouted. GW 14 Pilate said to them, "Why? What has he done wrong?" But they shouted even louder, "Crucify him!" NIV 14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate.

GW 19 They kept hitting him on the head with a stick, spitting on him, and kneeling in front of him with false humility. NIV 19 Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him. Falling on their knees, they paid homage to him.

NIV 20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple robe and put his own clothes on him. Then they led him out to crucify him.

You who are going to destroy the temple and build it in three days, GW 30 Come down from the cross, and save yourself!" NIV 30 come down from the cross and save yourself !" GW 31 The chief priests and the scribes made fun of him among themselves in the same way. They said, "He saved others, but he can't save himself.
