Previous Verse < Matthew 27 > Next Verse

So when Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man; see ye [to it]. (ASV)

Pro

Pontius Pilate comes off as remarkably wimpy and cowardly in the Gospels, letting himself be bullied by a lynch mob. This is a dramatic contrast to the portrayal of him by Philo and Josephus as a ruthless and tyrannical leader.

Also, please refer to the error discussed at Mark_15:6.
