The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleMatthew 27:23
And the governor said, why, what evil hath he done?
What reason can be given, why he should be crucified? what sin has
he committed, that deserves such a death? From whence it is clear,
that of all the things they had accused him, they had not, in
Pilate's account, given proof of one single action, that was
criminal, nor had he done any: he came into the world without sin,
he did none in it; he knew no sin, nor could any be found in him, by
Satan, nor his accusers, nor his judge:
but they cried out the more, saying, let him be crucified:
they saw Pilate inclined to favour him, and pleaded for him, and
attested his innocence; the more clamorous, outrageous, and urgent
they were to have him crucified.
