Matthew 27:15-23 15 Now it was the governoräó»s custom at the festival to release a prisoner chosen by the crowd. 16 At that time they had a well-known prisoner whose name was Jesus Barabbas. 17 So when the crowd had gathered, Pilate asked them, äóìWhich one do you want me to release to you: Jesus Barabbas, or Jesus who is called the Messiah?äó 18 For he knew it was out of self-interest that they had handed Jesus over to him. 19 While Pilate was sitting on the judgeäó»s seat, his wife sent him this message: äóìDonäó»t have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.äó 20 But the chief priests and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for Barabbas and to have Jesus executed. 21 äóìWhich of the two do you want me to release to you?äó asked the governor. äóìBarabbas,äó they answered. 22 äóìWhat shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called the Messiah?äó Pilate asked. They all answered, äóìCrucify him!äó 23 äóìWhy? What crime has he committed?äó asked Pilate. But they shouted all the louder, äóìCrucify him!äó
