“Crucify Him”

Pilate tries to avoid giving in to the mob whipped up by Jewish leaders.  Just five days earlier the people were crying “Hosanna” to this same man!  Pilate orders Jesus flogged – which often results in death.  By now, the Roman soldiers have mocked him with a crown of thorns – paying Jesus scornful homage.

Last chance for a pardon … but the crowd chooses Barabbas for release instead of Jesus. Ironically, ‘Barabbas’ means ‘Son of the Father’. 

Jesus will be crucified – and he will carry his own cross beam to the place of execution outside the city: Golgotha.

Jesus has now been rejected by Jew and Gentile.
