Jesus’ Trials (7)

Bible Reading: Matthew 27:11-26
Saturday, April 19, 2014

Jesus’ Trials (7)Herod sent Jesus back to Pilate. Pilate did not want to say that Jesus was guilty. So he did something, hoping Jesus would be released.

Every year at Passover time, it was a custom for the governor to release one prisoner. Pilate asked the Jews if he should free Jesus or Barabbas. Barabbas was “a man in prison who was known to be very bad” (verse 16b).

The crowd shouted for Pilate to release Barabbas and crucify Jesus. Pilate was afraid there would be a riot, so he freed Barabbas. Then he told the soldiers to beat Jesus and hang Him on a cross.

Pilate did not care about Jesus. He only cared about himself and his riches. There are many people in the world like that today. We should not care about money or possessions. We should focus our lives on Jesus and His wonderful gift of salvation.

Take time today to think about Jesus and what He did so that you can live forever with Him. — DF

“Then Pilate set Barabbas free. And he told some soldiers to beat Jesus with whips. Then he handed him over to the soldiers to be killed on a cross.” Matthew 27:26

PRAYER: Lord, help me to always be faithful to Jesus. In His name. Amen.
