27 Revised Standard Version Passage

15Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to release for the crowd any one prisoner whom they wanted.Jesus Sentenced to Die Mt.27.15-26 (Jerusalem) | Mk.15.6-15 | Lk.23.13-25 | Jn.18.39-19.16
16And they had then a notorious prisoner, called Other ancient authorities read: Jesus Barabbas Barab'bas. 
17So when they had gathered, Pilate said to them, "Whom do you want me to release for you, Other ancient authorities read: Jesus Barabbas Barab'bas or Jesus who is called Christ?" 
18For he knew that it was out of envy that they had delivered him up. 
19Besides, while he was sitting on the judgment seat, his wife sent word to him, "Have nothing to do with that righteous man, for I have suffered much over him today in a dream." 
20Now the chief priests and the elders persuaded the people to ask for Barab'bas and destroy Jesus. 
21The governor again said to them, "Which of the two do you want me to release for you?" And they said, "Barab'bas." 
22Pilate said to them, "Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?" They all said, "Let him be crucified." 
23And he said, "Why, what evil has he done?" But they shouted all the more, "LET HIM BE CRUCIFIED." 
24So when Pilate saw that he was gaining nothing, but rather that a riot was beginning, he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, "I am innocent of this man's blood Other authorities read: this righteous blood; Or: this righteous man's blood; see to it yourselves." 
25And all the people answered, "His blood be on us and on our children!" 
26Then he released for them Barab'bas, and having scourged Jesus, delivered him to be crucified.
