John 19:4

I bring him out to you (agw umin auton exw). Vividly pictures Pilate leading Jesus out of the palace before the mob in front. That ye may know (ina gnwte). Final clause with ina and the second aorist active subjunctive of ginwskw, "that ye may come to know," by this mockery the sincerity of Pilate's decision that Jesus is innocent ( Matthew 18:38 ). It is a travesty on justice and dignity, but Pilate is trying by a bit of humour to turn the mob from the grip of the Sanhedrin.
