Luke 23:24 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 23:24

And Pilate gave sentence
Resolved, determined, and gave out:

that it should be as they required;
that they should have their request, what they asked for; namely, that Jesus should be crucified, and Barabbas released.

Luke 23:24 In-Context

22 For the third time he demanded, “Why? What crime has he committed? I have found no reason to sentence him to death. So I will have him flogged, and then I will release him.”
23 But the mob shouted louder and louder, demanding that Jesus be crucified, and their voices prevailed.
24 So Pilate sentenced Jesus to die as they demanded.
25 As they had requested, he released Barabbas, the man in prison for insurrection and murder. But he turned Jesus over to them to do as they wished.
26 As they led Jesus away, a man named Simon, who was from Cyrene, happened to be coming in from the countryside. The soldiers seized him and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.
