John 19:16

He delivered (paredwken). Kappa aorist active of paradidwmi, the very verb used of the Sanhedrin when they handed Jesus over to Pilate ( 1 Samuel 18:30 1 Samuel 18:35 ). Now Pilate hands Jesus back to the Sanhedrin with full consent for his death ( Luke 23:25 ). To be crucified (ina staurwqh). Purpose clause with ina and the first aorist passive subjunctive of staurow. John does not give the dramatic episode in Matthew 27:24 when Pilate washed his hands and the Jews took Christ's blood on themselves and their children. But it is on Pilate also.
