John 19:7

_ _ The Jews answered him, We have a law, and by oar law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God — Their criminal charges having come to nothing, they give up that point, and as Pilate was throwing the whole responsibility upon them, they retreat into their own Jewish law, by which, as claiming equality with God (see John 5:18 and John 8:59), He ought to die; insinuating that it was Pilate’s duty, even as civil governor, to protect their law from such insult.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on John 19:1-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

John 19:7

By our law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God — Which they understood in the highest sense, and therefore accounted blasphemy.
