Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
The man named Barabbas had been imprisoned with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the insurrection.
But they cried out all together, saying, “
Away with this man, and release for us Barabbas!”
So they cried out again, saying, “
Not this Man, but Barabbas.” Now Barabbas was a robber.
But you disowned
the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you,
and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of
death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
