Now the governor’s custom at the feast was to release to the crowd any one prisoner whom they wanted. Bible other translations

“Now the governor’s custom at the feast.” Matthew blends Jesus’ two trials before Pilate as if they were one trial. However, by studying all four Gospels together we can see that this mention of Barabbas was part of Jesus’ second trial before Pilate (see commentary on Matt. 27:11).
