Matthew 27, The governor’s custom was to release one Jewish prisoner each year during the Passover celebration anyone they wanted. This year there was a particularly notorious criminal in jail named Barabbas, and as the crowds gathered before Pilate’s house that morning he asked them, “Which shall I release to you Barabbas, or Jesus your Messiah?” For he knew very well that the Jewish leaders had arrested Jesus out of envy because of his popularity with the people. Just then, as he was presiding over the court, Pilate’s wife sent him this message: “Leave that good man alone; for I had a terrible nightmare concerning him last night.” When the governor asked again, “Which of these two shall I release to you?” the crowd shouted back their reply: “Barabbas!” “Then what shall I do with Jesus, your Messiah?” Pilate asked. And they shouted, “Crucify him!” “Why?” Pilate demanded. “What has he done wrong?” But they kept shouting, “Crucify! Crucify!” When Pilate saw that he wasn’t getting anywhere and that a riot was developing, he sent for a bowl of water and washed his hands before the crowd, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this good man. The responsibility is yours!” They spat on him and grabbed the stick and beat him on the head with it. After the mockery, they took off the robe and put his own garment on him again, and took him out to crucify him. FRIENDS, WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH OUR MESSIAH? GLORIFY HIS NAME FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR US! Isaiah 53:3-4, He was despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows.
