And there was one named Barabbas, which lay bound with them that had made insurrection with him, who had committed murder in the insurrection.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

15:7 Barabbas. Barabbas was a robber (John 18:40), as well as a seditionist (Luke 23:25), insurrectionist and murderer. Yet the priests and the multitude preferred him to Jesus. Pilate, knowing Jesus was innocent, released Barabbas and had Jesus crucified! What a commentary on human nature!
