What is truth? Pontius Pilate asked that question of Jesus two thousand years ago and the world has been asking it in various ways since Cain. Spiritual Warfare relies upon a God revealed truth, that Jesus Christ is the Messiah and that newness of life can be found through repentance and faith in Him. In this installment we talk about the importance of sanctification in spiritual warfare.
TEXT: 1 Corinthians 15:1-4
Today, we are continuing with the fourth message in this series as we look at the Biblical basis for the statement of faith known as the Apostles' Creed.
Today, we are looking at the next line of the creed which reads: "...who under Pontius Pilate was crucified, and buried." The longer form of the creed says Jesus "suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead and buried." Notice three things from the biblical foundation for this belief.
1. We see the guiltiness of mankind. Luke 23:23-25 says, "And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed. And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will."
2. We see the certainty of Christ's death. In First Corinthians 15:3 Paul writes, "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures." The death of Christ is extremely important for the Christian faith. Death is the sentence that God laid down for sin. If Jesus Christ did not die, then He did not pay our sin debt.
3. We see the fulfillment of prophecy. Notice how Paul couches his statements concerning Jesus' death and burial in First Corinthians. He says, "Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And he was buried, and he rose again the third day according to the scriptures." Paul tells us that these things happened "according to the Scriptures."

Vs. 23. And being let go, they went to their own company, and reportd all the chief priest and elders had said unto them. Vs. 24. And when they heard that they lifted up their voice to God with one accord and said Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
Vs. 25. Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things ? Vs. 26. The Kings Of The earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against Christ.
Vs. 27. For of a truth against the Holy Child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together. Vs. 28. For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
Vs. 29. And Now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, Vs. 30. By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that sign and wonders may be done by nthe name of thy Holy Child Jesus.
[ ANSWER TO THEIR PRAYER ]
Vs. 31. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.
Vs. 32. And the multitude of them that believed were of one soul; neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
Vs. 33. And with great power gave the apostles witness......
When I was working on this sermon series for the Easter season I was thinking on different people that are mentioned in the gospels that either somehow played a part or were an eyewitness to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I usually have the titles before I have the sermons all prepared. This week in preparing for this message I realized that you can say everything there is to say in the Bible about Barabbas in one sentence. If you really stretch if out you can say about two sentences. That’s probably why you haven’t heard very many sermons about Barabbas.
ACTS 3:6-21 HEALING OF THE MAN AT THE GATE BEAUTIFUL.
Vs. 6. Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

Vs. 9. And all the people saw him walking and praising God: Vs. 10. And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.
Vs. 11. And as the lame man which was healed held peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering.
[Peter's second Sermon. This Miracle confirms the deity and claims of Jesus Christ. John 5:36, 10:37,38 ]
Vs. 12. And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this ? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk ?
Vs. 13. The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
Vs. 14. But ye denied the Holy One and the just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; Vs. 15. And killed the Prince of Life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
JOHN 18:24-40/ PETER'S SECOND AND THIRD DENIALS
vs. 24. Now Annas had sent him bound unto Caiphas the high priest. vs. 25. And Simon Peter stood and warmed himself. They said therefore unto him, Art not thou also one of his disciples ? He denied it, and said I am not.
vs. 26. One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him ? vs. 27. Peter then denied again and immediately the cock crew.
JESUS BEFORE PILATE: ( Mt. 27:1, 11; Mk. 15:1; Lk. 23:1 )
vs. 28. Then led they Jesus from Caiphas unto the hall of judgement: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgement hall, lest they would be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
vs. 29. Pilate the went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man ? vs. 30. They answered and said unto him. If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
vs. 31. Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death.;
vs. 32. That the saying of Jesus might be fulfilled, which he spake, signifying what death he should die. vs. 33. The Pilate entered into the judgement hall again, and called Jesus, and said unto him, Art thou the king Of the Jews ?
vs. 34. Jesus answered him, sayest thou this thing of thyself, or did others tell it thee of me ?
