Jesus Brought to Pilate

Found in Matthew 27:2,11-14, Mark 15:1-5, Luke 23:1-7 and John 18:28-38

Matthew 27:2 

And when they had bound Jesus, they led him away (from Caiaphas to the hall of judgment – John 18:28), and delivered him to Pontius Pilate the governor.

Luke tells us “the whole multitude arose, and led him to Pilate.” (23:1)

John 18:28-29 

And they did not go into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover. 

Pilate went out to them. 

Pilate: What accusation do you bring against this man? 

Luke 23:2 

And they began to accuse Jesus.

The Jews: We found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is Christ a King. 

John 18:30

The Jews: If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up to you. 

Matthew 27:12-14 

When Jesus was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing. 

Pilate (to Jesus): Do you not hear how many things they witness against you? 

And Jesus answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marveled greatly. 

John 18:31-38

Pilate: Take him and judge him according to your law. 

The Jews: It is not lawful for us to put any man to death.

That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spoke, signifying what death he should die. 

Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and called Jesus.

Pilate: Are you the King of the Jews? 

Jesus: Do you say this thing of yourself, or did others tell it of me?

Pilate: Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered you to me: what have you done? 

Jesus: My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then my servants would fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but my kingdom is not from here. 

Pilate: Are you a king then? 

Jesus: You say that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause I came into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Every one that is of the truth hears my voice. 

Pilate: What is truth? 

And when Pilate had said this, he went out again to the Jews.

Pilate (to the Jews): I find no fault at all in him.

Luke 23:5-7

And the Jews were the more fierce. 

The Jews: He stirs up the people, teaching throughout all Judaea, beginning from Galilee to this place. 

When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether Jesus was a Galilaean. 

And as soon as he knew that Jesus belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, Pilate sent Jesus to Herod, who was also at Jerusalem at that time.
