three years as a hypocrite. Small

game for the whisperings of
Satan which ied him to ap-

the right to carry out the death
penalty. They could condemn a
man to death, but the actual
sentence had to be ordered by
a Roman officer. Thus, the Jews
brought Christ to Pontius Pilate.
After questioning Christ, Pi-
late was convinced of His Inno-
cence, but found his hands tied
"Pilate saith unto them. What ahaXl J do than with Jean*
which is called Christ T They all say unto him, Let him be

Because the verses dealing

have been so often assigned to
than# lessons, we are going to
deal with them but briefly. The
words of our Lord at the table
regarding Die meaning of His
broken body and shed blood are
easily the most important and
profound words spoken that
night. Nevertheless, we must
not forget that our Lord actual-
ly gave more attention to the

Under Roman law. which was
famous for its justness, Pilate,
has but one course: he must de-
clare Jesus innocent (which he
doee), set Him free, and dare
the Jews to lay their hands
upon Him. But Pilate wss weak
and cowardly; his position in
the Roman hierarchy w'as none
too secure, and. politically, he
could not afford revolt among
the highly-placed Jews. Well
aware of this, the high prieet
had maneuvered Pilate Into a
situation where he had no other
choice but to condone the San-
hedrin's actions and condemn
Jesus to death.
Yet Pilate grasped at one fi-
nal straw in his attempt to free
Jesus. It was customary for one
prisoner, chosen by the people,
to be freed during the Passover.
Pilate offered the mob gathered

Barabhas and Jesus. But the
