33. Then Pilate entered into the judgment hall again, and

called Jesus, asked him saying, asked him, asked him, saying,

and said unto him, Art thou the king of the Jews ? Art thou the king of the Jews? Art thou the king of the Jews? Art thou the king of the Jews?

34. Jesus answered him, Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me?

35. Pilate answered, Am I a Jew? Thine own nation and the chief Priests have delivered thee unto me. What hast thou done ?

36. Jesus answered, My king, dom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews. But now is my kingdom not from hence.

37. Pilate therefore said unto

him, Art thou a king then ? And Jesus said unto him, Thou And he answering, said unto And he answered him, and said Jesus answered, Thou say est sayest. him, Thou sayest it. Thou sayest it.

that I am a king.
To this end was I born : and
for this cause came I into the
world ; that I should bear
witness unto the truth. Every
one that is of the truth heareth

my voice.

6. When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked, whether the man were a Galilean ?

7. And, as soon as he knew that he belonged to Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod : who himself was at Jerusalem at that time.

8. | And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad. For he was desirous to see him of a long season: because he had heard many things of him : and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him.

9. Then he questioned with him in many words. But he answered him nothing.
