Are you the messiah jesus answered? If i said yes, you wouldn’t believe me. If i ask you what you meant by your question, you wouldn’t answer me so here’s. What i have to say from here on the son of man takes his place at god’s right hand the place of power. So you admit your claim to be the son of god you’re, the ones who keep saying it. Why do we need any more evidence? We’Ve all heard him as good as say it himself. Why didn’t jesus answer them well for one he’s fulfilling a prophecy that the messiah wouldn’t protest, his innocence when he was accused? Also, the pharisees had asked the same question of jesus for years and he answered them with miracles and parables, but they refused to listen. He wouldn’t answer them again. They all took jesus to pilate and began to bring up charges against him. They said we found this man undermining our law in order for bidding taxes to be paid to caesar setting himself up as messiah king pilate asked him. Is this true that you’re king of the jews – those are your words, not mine. I find nothing wrong here. He seems harmless enough to me pilate. He stirring up on rest among the people with his teaching disturbing the peace everywhere starting in galilee and now all through judea he’s, a dangerous man endangering the peace so he’s. A galilean pilot then sent him to herod.
The ruler of galilee herod was delighted when jesus showed up. He had wanted for a very long time to see him he’d heard so much about him. He’D hoped to see him do something spectacular. He peppered him with questions, but jesus didn’t answer not one word. The whole time the high priest and religious scholars were right. There shouting their accusations, then herod and his soldiers began taunting and mocking jesus. Then they dressed him up in an elaborate king costume and sent him back to pilate. You brought this man to me as the server of the peace. I examined him in front of all of you and found there’s nothing to your charge and neither did harold, for he has sent him back here with a clean slate it’s clear that he’s done nothing wrong, let alone anything deserving death i’m, going to warn him to Watch his step and let him go at that the crowd went wild. They wanted to get rid of jesus. Would you rather i release barabbas from prison. It was a custom during the passover to let the crowd choose a prisoner to be released when pilate asked this question. The chief priest and the elders persuaded the crowd to ask for barabbas no give us babies. What do they ask for barabbas who’s? That barabbas had been thrown in prison for starting a riot in the city and for murder. He was definitely guilty, but the religious leaders who wanted to kill an innocent jesus convinced the mob to set barabbas free.
Instead, pilate still wanted to. Let jesus go and so spoke out again. So what should i do with jesus crucified? Crucify him, but for what crime? I found nothing in him deserving death. Crucify, him crucify! Him pilate caved in and gave them what they wanted. He released the man thrown in prison for rioting and murder and gave them jesus to do with him whatever they wanted. Thanks for joining us this week, today’s content is pretty heavy, so if you’re watching with kids take time to help them process what they see and hear, in spite of the cruel treatment and false accusations, jesus chose not to resist at the end.
