EXPOSITORY (ENGLISH BIBLE)Matthew 27.
Mr 15:1-20. Jesus Is Brought before Pilate—At a Second Hearing, Pilate, after Seeking to Release Him, Delivers Him Up—After Being Cruelly Entreated, He Is Led Away to Be Crucified. ( = Mt 26:1, 2, 11-31; Lu 23:1-6, 13-25; Joh 18:28-19:16).
See on Joh 18:28-19:16.See Poole on "Mark 15:2" Luke 23:22;
why, what evil hath he done? worthy of death. They had charged him with many things, but proved nothing against him. Pilate could find no fault in him, and judged him an innocent person, and therefore was loth to condemn him:
and they cried out the more exceedingly; with louder voices, and greater vehemency, the more they found he was inclined to save him:Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
EXEGETICAL (ORIGINAL LANGUAGES)Mark 15:14. This final speech of Pilate presents a subtle combination of honesty and craft. He says what he really thinks: that Jesus is innocent, and he makes sure that the people really mean to stand to what they have said.—περισσῶς, beyond measure: the positive here is stronger than the comparative περισσοτέρως (T.R.), and it is far better attested.14. But they cried out the more] “Why and wherefore?” There were no questions with them. They were resolved to have His life. Nothing else would satisfy. The cry was kept up unbroken, Away with this man, Crucify Him! Crucify Him! In vain Pilate expostulated. In vain he washed his hands openly before them all (Matthew 27:24) in token of his conviction of the perfect innocence of the Accused. His wavering in the early stage of the trial was bringing on its terrible consequences.
