In a effort to appease the angry mob, Pilate offered to release one of two men, hoping they would choose Jesus. Instead, they shouted for Barrabas. "What shall I do with Jesus?" Pilate asked. "Away, away; crucify Him" they chanted.
It wasn't a pretty sight, the night the light's went out in Jeruaslem! They lied about Jesus, beat Him, scourged Him, spit on Him and mocked Him. He stood like God's Man and took it.
Many people watched and responded differently. Priests, elders and scribes mocked. Women watched. Roman soldiers shook with fear. (And dead people were raised after Jesus!)
Then, they took Him down, wrapped Him up and intered Him in a new, not-yet-used tomb.
