They all asked, "Are you then the Son of God?" He replied, "You say that I am."
So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"
Pilate then went back inside the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, "Are you the king of the Jews?"
"You are a king, then!" said Pilate. Jesus answered, "You say that I am a king. In fact, the reason I was born and came into the world is to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me."
