I was the prisoner the people wanted released instead of Jesus.

What is my name?

Matthew 27:15-26

   15: Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would.
   16: And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas.
   17: Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?
   18: For he knew that for envy they had delivered him.
   19: When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him.
   20: But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus.
   21: The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas.
   22: Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified.
   23: And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
   24: When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.
   25: Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.
   26: Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified.

Answer: Barabbas
