I've been reading Matthew today. Mainly the end of Jesus' life. Pilate washes his hands clean of Jesus blood, because he finds no fault in Him. He tells the crowd, "I am innocent of this man's blood. It is your responsibility." It's ironic, the crowd says, "Let his blood be on us and our children!" How true that was. That was the whole point. It's sad, and beautiful.

We just discussed this in Bible study Wednesday night. Pilate had the power and opportunity to free Jesus. Did "washing his hands" really free him of the guilt of handing him over to the crowd? It is a shame what politicians will do b/c of pressure from the populace.

Isn't it interesting that God took the time to send a message to his wife in a dream warning him to have nothing to do with this situation.

I believe God's plan for our salvation would have worked out no matter what but the fact that He gave Pilot the chance to not be involved with Jesus' death shows His wonderful mercy.
