23 And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified.
Jesus stood before the people he came to redeem, and they betrayed him. They denied him. They did not want someone like him to be their messiah. He was just a lowly carpenter’s son. They wanted a mighty king. Well now we have a king that has conquered death hell and the grave. Jesus has risen to become the mighty king that Israel wanted, and yet people today don’t want him. He is went to the cross for them, rose from the grave for them, and is making intersections to God on their behalf. Yet, they still deny him. We need to pray that they open their eyes before it is to late.
