John 18:36-40

36Jesus answered, aMy kingdom bis not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, cmy servants would have been fighting, that dI might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” 37Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, eYou say that I am a king. fFor this purpose I was born and for this purpose gI have come into the worldhto bear witness to the truth. iEveryone who is jof the truth klistens to my voice.” 38Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”

After he had said this, lhe went back outside to the Jews and told them, mI find no guilt in him.
39 nBut you have a custom that I should release one man for you at the Passover. So do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?” 40They cried out again, oNot this man, but Barabbas!” Now Barabbas was a robber.
Or  an insurrectionist
