23:3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Are you the King of the Jews? And he answered him and said, You say.
23:4 And Pilate said to the chief priests and the multitudes, I find no fault in this man.

23:21 but they shouted, saying, Crucify, crucify him.
23:22 And he said to them the third time, Why, what evil has this man done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him and release him.
