A Murderer Released; the Messiah Rejected
Our passage this morning brings us one step closer to the death of Jesus Christ on the cross. He has been arrested by his enemies, tried by the religious authorities, and condemned by false testimony and wrong accusations. In our text today, we will see that Jesus is rejected by the civil authorities and by the Roman governor who condemns Him to death. Everyone in our text today rejected the Lord Jesus Christ. Be sure that the same isn't true of you.
