Pilate questions Jesus, sends him to Herod (who sends Him back), still finds nothing wrong with him, but sends him to be crucified anyway: Mark 15:2–5; Matthew 27:11–14; Luke 23:1–12; John 18:28–40; Mark 15:6–15; Matthew 27:15–26; Luke 23:13–25; John 19:1–16; Mark 15:16–20; Matthew 27:27–31

Jesus’ visit with Herod Antipas didn’t last long. Herod had already imprisoned John the Baptist, only to behead him. What did Herod want? To see a miracle.

No surprise then that Jesus, who already wasn’t answering anyone’s questions nor defending Himself, refused to answer Herod’s questions. Jesus refused to put on a show.

Luke 23:9-10 He asked Jesus question after question, but Jesus refused to answer. Meanwhile, the leading priests and the teachers of religious law stood there shouting their accusations. Then Herod and his soldiers began mocking and ridiculing Jesus.
