Luke 23:1-25

ESV 1 Then the whole company of them arose and brought him before Pilate. MSG 1 Then they all took Jesus to Pilate ESV 2 And they began to accuse him, saying, "We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding us to give tribute to Caesar, and saying that he himself is Christ, a king." MSG 2 and began to bring up charges against him. They said, "We found this man undermining our law and order, forbidding taxes to be paid to Caesar, setting himself up as Messiah-King." ESV 3 And Pilate asked him, "Are you the King of the Jews?" And he answered him, "You have said so." MSG 3 Pilate asked him, "Is this true that you're 'King of the Jews'?" "Those are your words, not mine," Jesus replied. ESV 4 Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, "I find no guilt in this man. MSG 4 Pilate told the high priests and the accompanying crowd, "I find nothing wrong here. He seems harmless enough to me. ESV 5 But they were urgent, saying, "He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee even to this place." MSG 5 But they were vehement. "He's stirring up unrest among the people with his teaching, disturbing the peace everywhere, starting in Galilee and now all through Judea. He's a dangerous man, endangering the peace." ESV 6 When Pilate heard this, he asked whether the man was a Galilean. MSG 6 When Pilate heard that, he asked, "So, he's a Galilean?" ESV 7 And when he learned that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him over to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time. MSG 7 Realizing that he properly came under Herod's jurisdiction, he passed the buck to Herod, who just happened to be in Jerusalem for a few days. ESV 8 When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had long desired to see him, because he had heard about him, and he was hoping to see some sign done by him. MSG 8 Herod was delighted when Jesus showed up. He had wanted for a long time to see him, he'd heard so much about him. He hoped to see him do something spectacular. ESV 9 So he questioned him at some length, but he made no answer. MSG 9 He peppered him with questions. Jesus didn't answer - not one word. ESV 10 The chief priests and the scribes stood by, vehemently accusing him. MSG 10 But the high priests and religion scholars were right there, saying their piece, strident and shrill in their accusations. ESV 11 And Herod with his soldiers treated him with contempt and mocked him. Then, arraying him in splendid clothing, he sent him back to Pilate. MSG 11 Mightily offended, Herod turned on Jesus. His soldiers joined in, taunting and jeering. Then they dressed him up in an elaborate king costume and sent him back to Pilate. ESV 12 And Herod and Pilate became friends with each other that very day, for before this they had been at enmity with each other. MSG 12 That day Herod and Pilate became thick as thieves. Always before they had kept their distance. ESV 13 Pilate then called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, MSG 13 Then Pilate called in the high priests, rulers, and the others ESV 14 and said to them, "You brought me this man as one who was misleading the people. And after examining him before you, behold, I did not find this man guilty of any of your charges against him MSG 14 and said, "You brought this man to me as a disturber of the peace. I examined him in front of all of you and found there was nothing to your charge ESV 15 Neither did Herod, for he sent him back to us. Look, nothing deserving death has been done by him. MSG 15 And neither did Herod, for he has sent him back here with a clean bill of health. It's clear that he's done nothing wrong, let alone anything deserving death. ESV 16 I will therefore punish and release him." MSG 16 I'm going to warn him to watch his step and let him go." ESV 18 But they all cried out together, "Away with this man, and release to us Barabbas"-- MSG 18 At that, the crowd went wild: "Kill him! Give us Barabbas!" ESV 19 a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection started in the city and for murder MSG 19 (Barabbas had been thrown in prison for starting a riot in the city and for murder. ESV 20 Pilate addressed them once more, desiring to release Jesus, MSG 20 Pilate still wanted to let Jesus go, and so spoke out again. ESV 21 but they kept shouting, "Crucify, crucify him! MSG 21 But they kept shouting back, "Crucify! Crucify him! ESV 22 A third time he said to them, "Why, what evil has he done? I have found in him no guilt deserving death. I will therefore punish and release him." MSG 22 He tried a third time. "But for what crime? I've found nothing in him deserving death. I'm going to warn him to watch his step and let him go." ESV 23 But they were urgent, demanding with loud cries that he should be crucified. And their voices prevailed. MSG 23 But they kept at it, a shouting mob, demanding that he be crucified. And finally they shouted him down. ESV 24 So Pilate decided that their demand should be granted. MSG 24 Pilate caved in and gave them what they wanted. ESV 25 He released the man who had been thrown into prison for insurrection and murder, for whom they asked, but he delivered Jesus over to their will. MSG 25 He released the man thrown in prison for rioting and murder, and gave them Jesus to do whatever they wanted.
