Matthew 27:1,2 – Jesus handed over to Pilate

27 When morning came, all the chief priests and the elders of the people consulted together against Jesus to put him to death.+  After binding him, they led him off and handed him over to Pilate, the governor.+

Matthew 27:27-37

27  Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the governor’s residence and gathered the whole body of troops together around him.+ 28  And disrobing him, they draped him with a scarlet cloak,+ 29  and they braided a crown out of thorns and put it on his head and put a reed in his right hand. And kneeling before him, they mocked him, saying: “Greetings,* you King of the Jews!”30  And they spat on him+ and took the reed and began hitting him on his head. 31  Finally, after they had mocked him, they stripped him of the cloak and put his outer garments on him and led him off to be nailed to the stake.+32  As they were going out, they found a man of Cy·re′ne named Simon. This man they compelled into service to carry his torture stake.*+ 33  And when they came to a place called Gol′go·tha, that is, Skull Place,+ 34  they gave him wine mixed with gall* to drink;+ but after tasting it, he refused to drink it. 35  When they had nailed him to the stake, they distributed his outer garments by casting lots,+ 36  and they sat there keeping watch over him. 37  They also posted above his head the charge against him, in writing: “This is Jesus the King of the Jews.”+
