Matthew 27:23-25 The Voice (VOICE)

Pilate: 23 Why? What crime has this man committed?

Crowd (responding with a shout): Crucify Him!

It is clear Pilate has laid his own trap. He realizes he has given the crowd a choice, but the crowd doesn’t choose as he expects them to.

24 Pilate saw that unless he wanted a riot on his hands, he now had to bow to their wishes. So he took a pitcher of water, stood before the crowd, and washed his hands.

Pilate: You will see to this crucifixion, for this man’s blood will be upon you and not upon me. I wash myself of it.

Crowd: 25 Indeed, let His blood be upon us—upon us and our children!
