The Crucifixion Of Jesus
Jesus Did Not Have A Legal Trial
It is recorded in Matthew 27:22-26,
“Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!” Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done? “But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!” When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a tumult was rising, he took water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this just Person. You see to it.” And all the people answered and said, “His blood be on us and on our children.” Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified”.
Pilate never condemned Jesus for doing anything wrong. Pilate simply asked the crowd what they wanted to do with Jesus Christ, and the crowd, inspired by the Sanhedrin, cried out for Him to be crucified. Pontius Pilate washed his hands, and said that he was innocent of Jesus’ Blood. The Roman Legal System had failed, and Pontius Pilate said to the crowd, “You see to it”.
Everyone has to make a decision in their lives about what to do with Jesus Christ.
