“It was as if he was the one in control.” I can imagine this thought going through Pilate’s mind, Lesley. I wonder what his wife said to him when she saw him later; he should have listened to her! I enjoyed reading this. 🙂

Wow!!! I loved reading this perspective. You know, I thought it was remarkable that he publicly washed his hands off the death of Jesus. I never thought further about how he must have felt after. It was a great read.

I love this perspective! Thanks so much for the fresh take on a familiar narrative! May it be a fresh reality as we prepare to celebrate the resurrection next week!

I loved reading about Pilate in story form. Perspective is everything and you provided us the chance to see it from Pilate’s point of view. Thank you for taking us on this journey today.

Lesley, hi!

Whenever I come to visit you here, these words knock me out in all the best ways –>’Read His Words Before Ours!’

It’s a reminder I need in front of me each morning. I appreciate this more than words can say.

Lesley, you brought Pilate’s struggle to life for me. To be such a man of the world, and yet to possibly feel angst of the outcome of Jesus’ trial . . . I can’t say how many times I’ve regretted choosing to please people rather than stand firm in what God shared with me. I’m thankful for God’s grace and forgiveness when I choose wrongly. And I’m ever grateful for the redemption He’s given us!

I know i’ve often fought the same battle “people vs God”. Too often I choose “people”. How grateful I am for the true reality Pilate’s story helps us see, and for immeasurable grace to keep having opportunities to please God! Thanks for sharing, Jeanne!

Thank you for taking us back to this very important day. It is so difficult when we are forced to make a decision between pleasing God and people. I am feeling pulled at this very moment and your post helped me to see it clearly. Thank you.

I loved reading the scripture in this way, felt like I was there with them. Would love to watch a movie from this POV.

It is always interesting to try to step into the shoes of another. This post adds depth to the struggle Pilate may have felt. We all will face choices in this life. May we pray for strength to choose well. Blessings!

It is interesting to imagine what people may have thought or what we would have done.

I wonder what I would have done as well, Rebecca. It’s easy to look from our vantage point and criticize, but would I have done differently? I know I’ve acted as Pilate did countless times. Judas too.
