Moved The People
Mark 15:11 (KJV) But the chief priests moved the people, that he should rather release Barabbas unto them.
This verse tells us that the chief priests, out of jealousy, worked the assembled crowd into a frenzy, pushing them to ask Pilate for Barabbas’ release rather than freeing this innocent man, Jesus Christ.
