Nov 29 While Pilate sat on his judgment seat, this message came from his wife, “Do nothing to that innocent man,3 I suffered much today in a dream because of him.” But the chief priests and elders incited the mob to ask for Barabbas, when Pilate asked, “Which one shall I release?” They shouted, “Barabbas.”

Then Pilate flogged Jesus. The soldiers crowned him with plaited thorns and dressed him in a purple robe.

Then they struck him in the face, saying, “Hail, the king of Jews!”

Pilate returned and said, “I bring him out to let you know, I find him not guilty.4 I will flog him and release him.” Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe. “Behold the man!” Pilate exclaimed, wishing to free Jesus. What shall I do with Jesus who is called the Christ? They all shouted, “Crucify Him! Crucify Him!”
