When morning came the chief priests, having made their plan with the elders and lawyers and all the Council, put Jesus in chains; then they led him away and handed him over to Pilate.
Pilate asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”
He replied, “The words are yours.”
And the chief priests brought many charges against him.
Pilate questioned him again: “Have you nothing to say in your defence? You see how many charges they are bringing against you.”
But to Pilate’s astonishment, Jesus made no reply.
