Barabbas Released - Jesus Crucified

Mark Chapter 15

15:6 Now at that feast he released unto them one prisoner, whomsoever they desired.    
15:7 And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.    
15:8 And the multitude crying aloud began to desire him to do as he had ever done unto them.    
15:9 But Pilate answered them, saying, Will ye that I release unto you the King of the Jews?    
15:10 For he knew that the chief priests had delivered him for envy.    
15:11 But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.    
15:12 And Pilate answered and said again unto them, What will ye then that I shall do unto him whom ye call the King of the Jews?    
15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him.    
15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.    
15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.    
15:16 And the soldiers led him away into the hall, called Praetorium; and they call together the whole band.    
15:17 And they clothed him with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head,    
15:18 And began to salute him, Hail, King of the Jews!    
15:19 And they smote him on the head with a reed, and did spit upon him, and bowing their knees worshipped him.    
15:20 And when they had mocked him, they took off the purple from him, and put his own clothes on him, and led him out to crucify him.
