Answering again, Pilate said to them, “Then what shall I do with Him whom you call the King of the Jews?” They shouted back, “Crucify Him!” Mark 15:12-13
As Jesus was wrongfully put on trial, the crowd had an option. Either release the killer Barabbas or release the Son of God. The crowd choose to free a killer and kill the Messiah. What fools we think, isn’t this what happens everyday in the world? People mock Jesus today, they curse in his name, they ban him from being mentioned in public places , they are choosing the killer Barabbas
Even though Jesus never harmed anyone, they shouted to “Crucify Him”! Were we once in this crowd? Did we ever reject Christ in our lives? When we understand that Jesus died for us even when we didn’t deserve it, that’s Amazing Grace
But Pilate said to them, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they shouted all the more, “Crucify Him!” Mark 15:14
Again the people shouted “Crucify Him”! even though Pilate declared Jesus was innocent. This is not justice, this is murder! Why did these people choose Barabbas over Jesus? Why do people today continue to choose Barabbas and crucify Christ?
People will say , this happened over 2,000 years ago and has nothing to with me! Your either a slave to sin or a slave to Jesus Christ, there is no other option. If you reject Christ, your guilty of trampling on his blood and shouting “Crucify him”! Which way will you choose? The way of Life or the way of Death?
