Insurrection (stasin). An old word for sedition, standing off, the very charge made against Jesus (and untrue). If Jesus had raised insurrection against Caesar, these accusers would have rallied to his standard. And for murder (kai ponon). They cared nought for this. In fact, the murderer was counted a hero like bandits and gangsters today with some sentimentalists. Was cast (hn blhqei). Periphrastic aorist passive indicative of ballw, a quite unusual form.
