Matthew 27:15 - 27:26

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg delves into Matthew 27:15-26, which portrays the auction-like environment surrounding Jesus as a criminal with Pilate asking the Jewish crowd to choose between him and another criminal called Barabbas. The crowd, driven by public sentiments, chose Barabbas and demanded Jesus to be crucified. Pilate's wife warned him about the innocent Jesus, but Pilate, fearing Caesar's reaction, succumbed to the crowd's pressure and released Barabbas while condemning Jesus to be flogged and eventually crucified. Throughout the story, Jesus remains committed to his non-worldly kingdom and loyal to Rome, deflecting Pilate's attempts to place the responsibility on him.
