Innocent Blood

Then when Judas, his betrayer, saw that Jesus was condemned, he repented himself and brought back the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and the elders, saying, 

“I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.” They said, “What is that to us? See to it yourself.” And throwing down the pieces of silver into the temple, he departed, and he went and hanged himself.
11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. “Are You the King of the Jews?” the governor asked Him.
Jesus answered, “You have said it.”
12 And while He was being accused by the chief priests and elders, He didn’t answer.
13 Then Pilate said to Him, “Don’t You hear how much they are testifying against You?” 
14 But He didn’t answer him on even one charge, so that the governor was greatly amazed.

 22 Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said, “Let him be crucified!” 23 And he said, “Why, what evil has he done?” But they shouted all the more, “Let him be crucified!”

 ...he took water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, 

“I am innocent of this just man's blood; see to it yourselves.”  

25 And all the people answered, “His blood be on us and on our children!”

Matthew 27
