The chief priests, elders, & scribes questioned Jesus, if He was the Son of God.
Jesus said to them, " You will see Me sitting on the right hand of the power of God, and coming in the clouds of heaven."
The decision of this counsel was death for Jesus.
They bound Jesus & delivered Him to Pontius Pilate, the governor.
The governor did not want to kill Jesus, so he looked for a chance to free Him.
He gave people a choice to free one of the prisoners.
" Whom will you release Barabbas or Jesus?" he asked.
Barabbas was a bad man, but the high priest convinced the people to crucify Jesus, and let Barabbas go free.
The governor answered, " I am innocent of the blood of this good person.”
