Luke 23:1-12 NIV

Luke 23:1-12 NIV [1] Then the whole assembly rose and led him off to Pilate. [2] And they began to accuse him, saying, "We have found this man subverting our nation. He opposes payment of taxes to Caesar and claims to be Messiah, a king." [3] So Pilate asked Jesus, "Are you the king of the Jews?" "You have said so," Jesus replied. [4] Then Pilate announced to the chief priests and the crowd, "I find no basis for a charge against this man." [5] But they insisted, "He stirs up the people all over Judea by his teaching. He started in Galilee and has come all the way here." [6] On hearing this, Pilate asked if the man was a Galilean. [7] When he learned that Jesus was under Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time. [8] When Herod saw Jesus, he was greatly pleased, because for a long time he had been wanting to see him. From what he had heard about him, he hoped to see him perform a sign of some sort. [9] He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer. [10] The chief priests and the teachers of the law were standing there, vehemently accusing him. [11] Then Herod and his soldiers ridiculed and mocked him. Dressing him in an elegant robe, they sent him back to Pilate. [12] That day Herod and Pilate became friends-before this they had been enemies.
