Jesus Was There For Them

Jesus Was There For Them

Pastor Dan Davidson

The Royal Servant

In the continuing effort to have Jesus put to death, the Jewish religious leaders bring Him before Pilate, the procurator of Judea, since only the Roman government had the authority to declare a sentence of death. Pilate had already treated the Jews with an unholy contempt (Luke 13:1). Pilate’s only loyalty was to Rome, and even that was for his own selfish ends. Jesus is at the end of the illegal trial process, and Pilate is struggling with what to do with Him (John 18:28-19:16). In facing the wicked ruler, the hateful Jewish crowds and the arrogant soldiers, Jesus gives us the example of perfect love and grace, because Jesus was there for their sake! May God help us to learn that example today!

Mark 15:1-20
