HI There

As a follower of Jesus the Messiah I wanted to post a poem for today - Good Friday.  Thank you for letting me be here and express my thoughts and beliefs.  I appreciate your generosity and welcome

Introduction

John 19:5  When Jesus came out wearing the crown of thorns and the purple robe, Pilate said to them, "Here is the man!" 

And Pilate said, “Behold the man!”

The man who was born of a virgin

The man who resisted temptation

The man who pleased God

The man who taught about love

The man who walked on water

The man who fed 5,000

The man who described God’s Kingdom

The man who healed the blind

The man who made the lame walk

The man who cast out evil

The man who raised the dead

The man who loved the outcast

The man who ate with ‘sinners’

The man who forgave sins

The man who stood for justice

The man who was the Son of David

The man who washed dirty feet

The man who was betrayed by friends

The man who was whipped

The man who was nailed to a cross

The man who died alone

The man who rose from the dead

The man who is King.

And Pilate is a 'bad guy'?

It just shows that he was weak like many of us and caved into society and peer pressure in order to save his own skin.

Then why was Pilate recalled to Rome to answer for his barbarity. Rome of all places. Tiberius was reacting to a complaint from the Syrian Governor who also killed people.

Yes Pilate wasn't a nice guy.  But he was a historical figure around at the time of Jesus the Messiah.  Non Christian historical acounts and archioligical discoveries add credibility to the Gospel accounts of the trial of Jesus the Messiah.

The challenge for us is to face the question that Pilate had to face - Who is this person and what is our response to him?

Mostly Josephus (joe-see-fuss) and as was discovered in the Renaissance his writings were altered to include "chis!ian and jewish things" he did not actually write about.

The accounts of Jesus the Messiah in the Injil present a godly person who taught about entering God's kingdom and engaged with people with the authority of God.  The accounts agree he died and rose from the dead and then assended to heaven.  These are unique to Jesus the Messiah.  How do we respond to these unique historical facts?  Do we reduce them to 'normal' and 'unimportant' and ignore them or do we see them as events which point to a unique person who demands aligence?
