Jesus Faces Pilate(A)

11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. (B)And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”

Jesus said to him, (C)It is as you say.” 12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, (D)He answered nothing.

13 Then Pilate said to Him, (E)“Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.

34 Jesus answered him, “Are you speaking for yourself about this, or did others tell you this concerning Me?”

35 Pilate answered, “Am I a Jew? Your own nation and the chief priests have delivered You to me. What have You done?”

36 (E)Jesus answered, (F)“My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”
