A deranged peasant or the Son of God?


Early in the morning, they brought Jesus to the Roman governor, Pilate. The governor came out impatiently perplexed as to why such matters needed his attention.

“What charges are you bringing against this man?” he gruffly asked.

With offended arrogance, the religious leaders responded, “If he were not a criminal, we would not have handed him over to you.”

Pilate saw through their game. They already found Jesus guilty so why bother the governor with the matter?

With sarcastic condescension, Pilate ordered, “Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law.”

Pilate didn’t want to be bothered.

But the religious leaders objected saying, “But we have no right to execute anyone.”

There is no end to their hypocrisy. They tried to kill Jesus on more than one occasion.  However, they wanted Jesus to be crucified so that he would appear to be cursed by God (see: Galatians 3:13).
