    governor Pontius Pilate. Pilate had Jesus sent to King Herod because Jesus was a Galilean after questioning Jesus and not receiving the reaction or response he desired. Herod sent Jesus back to Pilate (Collins, n.d.), when Jesus went back before Pilate he was flogged, beaten or whipped. (Cohn, 2008) Soldiers then made him a crown to mock him as King.

He turned to Jesus and asked him what part of the land he came from. Jesus made no remark. This angered Pilate and he told Jesus that his life is in his hands that he could kill him or set him free.

    While giving the account of Jesus before Annas (18:12-24), and then the account before Pilate (18:28-40), the text omits what occurs while Jesus is in Caiaphas’ own home (18:24, 28). As if Annas’ house was a common place for people to hang out in the dead of night, Peter and the beloved disciple are confronted with quite a crowd just waiting around…in the dead of night. If this is not shady enough for you, then consider the role of Malchus’ relative (18:26). For such a person to be present…
