But Jesus made no reply, not even to a single charge--to the great amazement of the governor.
Then the governor's soldiers took Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole company of soldiers around him.
He plied him with many questions, but Jesus gave him no answer.
Then the Jewish leaders took Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness they did not enter the palace, because they wanted to be able to eat the Passover.
