Easter Countdown Day 5: Pilate Washes His Hands/Jesus is Delivered to be Crucified

Easter Countdown Day 5


When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.” Then answered all the people and said, “His blood be on us, and on our children.” Then released he Barabbas, unto them: and when he scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Matthew 27:24-26

...Pilate believed Jesus to be innocent, and he had the political power to save him from death. Why didn't he?
