Proverbs 28:23 - He who rebukes a man, will find "more favor" afterward, Than he who flatters with the tongue (NKJV)
Notice: Favor can grow/increase! If you do something correctly, then afterwards more favor can come! In other words "Doing what's right, multiplies favor".

In all Jesus had 3 religious trials and 3 civil trials, 6 trials in all.
Pilate is a very interesting character. He ruled as governor from 26 to 36 A.D. If you want to understand why Pilate is having such a struggle because he will admit to the crowd that there's nothing wrong with Jesus. He didn't commit any crime. "I find no fault with this man."
How Pilate took office is very interesting.
