Jesus, Barabbas, and Pontius Pilate
Do you believe that Jesus is who he says he is?
Pilate’s Two Responses:
1. Pilate was amazed (v.5)
• Curiosity is a good first step, but it is not enough (Jn. 6)
2. Pilate decides to appease the crowd (v.15)
• We all have to decide: are you with Jesus or against him? (Lk. 11.23)
Encouragement: Jesus is in fact the Messiah and King, and he sits now, “enthroned at the right hand of Power,” just as he promised (Mk. 14.62).
Challenge: Choose today to put your full faith in Jesus as your Savior and King.
