Holy Saturday, pressing toward Easter Vigil!
Let us continue to “Behold The Man” (John 19: 5)… Ecce Homo!
See also John 19: 6, the pronouns “yourselves” and “Him” have an emphatic force indicating Pilate’s disgust and indignation at the Jews for their callousness toward Jesus. But the Jewish leadership still presses their charge of blasphemy toward Jesus… “WE have a law..” And their so-called “law” did NOT see or understand that GOD could and would become “incarnate”! Even the pagan Pilate could sense this idea in verse 9, “Where are YOU from?” (to Jesus) And of course see Jesus answer verse 11, the greater sin lies with the Jewish leaders!
