The Jewish leaders were insistent that Jesus be put to death. Pilate, caring nothing for the Jews’ religious disputes, saw no reason to condemn Jesus and sought for political means to avoid adjudicating Jesus. He even gave them a choice between Jesus and a known murderer, believing the people would not want a murderer back on the streets. To the surprise of Pilate, they chose to release a criminal, instead of the innocent Christ. Pilate asked, “What shall I do then with Jesus?”. Little did he know that his question would confront every human heart who would ever hear the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The same question is asked of you and me. In this broadcast of Let the Bible Speak, we look at the forces that molded Pilate’s decision of what to do with Jesus Christ and how those same things lead many today to reject Him and crucify Him afresh.
