Rome had succeeded in gaining dominance as a world power, divided its subject territories into provinces for administration, and gave them a fair degree of freedom so long as they were submissive and cooperative. The Jews were allowed to govern themselves by making/enforcing laws and by trying/punishing law-breakers. Rome could intervene at its discretion but normally would not do so except for execution. Jerusalem was swelled with people at Passover season and Pilate , the Roman Governor of Judea, was himself in Jerusalem and beared the responsibility of dealing with the Jews for the fate of Jesus.
