Pilate Attempts To Release Jesus

6 As soon then as the High Priests and the officers saw Him, they shouted "To the cross! To the cross!" "Take him yourselves and crucify him," said Pilate; "for I, at any rate, find no crime in him." 7 "We," replied the Jews, "have a Law, and in accordance with that Law he ought to die, for having claimed to be the Son of God." 8 More alarmed than ever, Pilate no sooner heard these words than he re-entered the Praetorium and began to question Jesus.
