Read: Matthew 27:11–25
“When Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere, but that instead an uproar was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. ‘I am innocent of this man’s blood,’ he said. ‘It is your responsibility!’
“All the people answered, ‘His blood is on us and on our children!’” (Matthew 27:24–25 NIV).
