Who Killed Jesus?

Then Pilate took Jesus and had him flogged... [and] he brought Jesus out and sat down on the judgment seat at a place called The Pavement, and in Hebrew, Gabbatha ... He said to the Jews, “Behold your King!” They cried out, “Away with him, away with him, crucify him!” Pilate said to them, “Shall I crucify your King?” The chief priests answered, “We have no king but Caesar.” Then he handed him over to them to be crucified. (John 19:1,13,15-16)
