Mark 15:7; Matthew 27:16; Luke 23:19; John 18:40
A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising.
At that time they had a well-known prisoner whose name was Jesus Barabbas.
(Barabbas had been thrown into prison for an insurrection in the city, and for murder.)
They shouted back, “No, not him! Give us Barabbas!” Now Barabbas had taken part in an uprising.
