Going across the city to Pilate's residence in Jerusalem (the Antonia Fortress), the assembly presented Jesus for the next round of interrogation. The religious leaders charged him with, among other things, subverting their nation and claiming to be Christ, a King.
Pilate asked Jesus whether he was king of the Jews. Jesus answered:
Yes, it is as you say.
Bewildered why the Jews were charging Jesus, Pilate told them he could find no fault (the oldest surviving copy of that New Testament verse is from about 125 AD) in the man.
So what if he claimed to be a king? Who had he harmed?
