« They were all filled Rich man and Lazarus He has Risen. Mark 16:1-8 »
Bible Quote 15:1 Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision. They bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate.
15:2 "Are you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate. "Yes, it is as you say," Jesus replied.
15:3 The chief priests accused him of many things.
15:4 So again Pilate asked him, "Aren't you going to answer? See how many things they are accusing you of."
15:5 But Jesus still made no reply, and Pilate was amazed.

15:6 Now it was the custom at the Feast to release a prisoner whom the people requested.
15:7 A man called Barabbas was in prison with the insurrectionists who had committed murder in the uprising.
15:8 The crowd came up and asked Pilate to do for them what he usually did.
15:9 "Do you want me to release to you the king of the Jews?" asked Pilate,
15:10 knowing it was out of envy that the chief priests had handed Jesus over to him.

15:11 But the chief priests stirred up the crowd to have Pilate release Barabbas instead.
15:12 "What shall I do, then, with the one you call the king of the Jews?" Pilate asked them.
15:13 "Crucify him!" they shouted.
15:14 "Why? What crime has he committed?" asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, "Crucify him!"
15:15 Wanting to satisfy the crowd, Pilate released Barabbas to them. He had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
