Chapter 4 Paragraph 1

Mark 15:6-15
6 ‘Now at the feast he was accustomed to releasing one prisoner to them, whomever they requested.
7 ‘And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion.
8 'Then the multitude, crying aloud, began to ask him to do just as he had always done for them.
9 ‘But Pilate answered them, saying, "Do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?"
10 ‘For he knew that the chief priests had handed Him over because of envy.
11 ‘But the chief priests stirred up the crowd, so that he should rather release Barabbas to them.
12 ‘Pilate answered and said to them again, "What then do you want me to do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?"
13 ‘So they cried out again, "Crucify Him!"
14 ‘Then Pilate said to them, "Why, what evil has He done?" But they cried out all the more, "Crucify Him!"
15 ‘So Pilate, wanting to gratify the crowd, released Barabbas to them; and he delivered Jesus, after he had scourged Him, to be crucified.’
Psalm 2:1-3
1 ‘Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing?
2 ‘The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and against His Anointed, saying,
3 ‘"Let us break Their bonds in pieces and cast away Their cords from us."
Luke 19:37-40
37 ‘Then, as He was now drawing near the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole multitude of the disciples began to rejoice and praise God with a loud voice for all the mighty works they had seen,
38 ‘saying: " 'Blessed is the King who comes in the name of the Lord!' Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!"
39 ‘And some of the Pharisees called to Him from the crowd, "Teacher, rebuke Your disciples."
40 ‘But He answered and said to them, "I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out."
Psalm 42:3-4
3 ‘My tears have been my food day and night, while they continually say to me, "Where is your God?"
4 ‘When I remember these things, I pour out my soul within me. For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept a pilgrim feast.
