Jesus’ Trials (5)

Jesus was next taken to the Roman governor’s palace. The Roman governor was Pilate. The time was still early in the morning.
Pilate probably was like other Romans. He looked down on the Jews and didn’t want to have anything to do with them. But Pilate still talked with Jesus. Jesus told Pilate (verse 37b), “You are right to say that I am a king. I was born for this: to tell people about the truth. That is why I came into the world. And everyone who belongs to the truth listens to me.”
Luke 23:5-7 tells us that Pilate had a plan to have someone else listen to Jesus’ case. Pilate was the governor over Judea. Jesus was from the area of Galilee. The ruler over Galilee was Herod. Herod was in Jerusalem that day, so Pilate sent Jesus to him.
The Jews and the Romans were not willing to pay attention to God’s truth. And they didn’t even want to associate with God’s Son. What about you today? Are you ready to pay attention to God’s truth in the Bible and follow His Son?
