John 19:11 The Passion Translation (TPT)

11 Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me at all, unless it was given to you from above. This is why the one who betrayed[a] me is guilty of an even greater sin.”


  1. John 19:11 Or “handed me over.” This is the same Greek verb translated “betray” in John 6:71. It would obviously point to Judas. However, some expositors believe it was Caiaphas who handed over Jesus to Pilate, and is referred to here. But in fact, it was the evil spirits of darkness who were controlling Pilate and moving in the hearts of all involved to crucify Jesus. These dark powers would be the ones to experience the tremendous judgment unleashed on them by the power of the cross and resurrection.
