John 18:28-32

Jesus Before Pilate

28 aThen they led Jesus bfrom the house of Caiaphas to cthe governor’s headquarters.
Greek  the praetorium
It was early morning. They themselves did not enter the governor’s headquarters, eso that they would not be defiled, fbut could eat the Passover.
29 gSo Pilate went outside to them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this man?” 30They answered him, “If this man were not doing evil, we would not have delivered him over to you.” 31Pilate said to them, hTake him yourselves and judge him by your own law.” The Jews said to him, “It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death.” 32 iThis was to fulfill the word that Jesus had spoken jto show by what kind of death he was going to die.
