Luke 23:19

23:19 (This 1  was a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection 2  started in the city, and for murder.) 3 

Luke 23:25

23:25 He released the man they asked for, who had been thrown in prison for insurrection and murder. But he handed Jesus over 4  to their will. 5 

1 tn Grk “who” (a continuation of the previous sentence).

2 sn Ironically, what Jesus was alleged to have done, started an insurrection, this man really did.

3 sn This is a parenthetical note by the author.

4 tn Or “delivered up.”

5 sn He handed Jesus over to their will. Here is where Luke places the major blame for Jesus’ death. It lies with the Jewish nation, especially the leadership, though in Acts 4:24-27 he will bring in the opposition of Herod, Pilate, and all people.
