“But they cried out, Away with him, away with him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The chief priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.”
King James Version (KJV)
Joh 19:15 We have no king but Caesar. They had not now. They had rejected the divine King, and chosen Barabbas instead, for life, and now make choice of Caesar as their king instead of the Lord's Anointed. To Caesar's tender mercies they committed themselves, and in about a generation Caesar will trample them in the wine press of wrath. The choice they had made sealed the fate of their city and nation.
