The Carpenters Pageant of The Resurrection - original text - modernised text.
 
Spin doctoring is nothing new. In this play Pilate and the two high priests are initially very disturbed by the tomb having been found empty. But then Pilate works out a suitable story and calm is restored.

Pilate: Harken what that ye shall say To ilka man both night and day: That ten thousand men in good array Came you until, With force of arms bore him away Against your will. Thus shall ye say in ilka land, And thereto on that same covenant A thousand pound have in your hand To your reward — And friendship, sirs, ye understand, Shall not be spared.
Thus shall the sooth be bought and sold, And treason shall for truth be told.
