Pilate found no reason to put Jesus to death. The crowds however would not be calmed. They wanted Jesus to be crucified. Pilate took water and washed his hands saying that he was not responsible for shedding innocent blood. The people said that they and their children would take the blame for His death. That is still true. He died for our sins. His blood covers over them ALL. We can only be free from sin when we accept His gift of salvation for us!!
