Pilate Washing his hands (A)
He Qi, China
"What, then, shall I do with Jesus called the Messiah?" Pilate asked them.
"Crucify him!" they all answered.
But Pilate asked, "What crime has he committed?"
Then they started shouting at the top of their voices: "Crucify him!"
When Pilate saw that it was no use to go on, but that riot might break out, he took some water, washed his hands in front of the crowd, and said, "I am not responsible for the death of this man! This is your doing!"
(Matthew 27:22-24)
