Jesus Brought Before Pilate

31 So, Pilate said to them, "Take him yourselves and judge him according to your [own] law." [But] the Jews replied to him, "It is not permissible for us to put anyone to death." 32 [They said this] so that the words Jesus had spoken would be fulfilled, regarding the kind of death He would die. [Note: Jesus had predicted he would be "lifted up," indicating a Roman crucifixion. See 12:32-33]. 33 So, Pilate went back into his headquarters and called for Jesus. He said to Him, "Are you the King of the Jews?"
