They went up to him, said, “Long live the king of the Jews!” and slapped his face. Pilate...told the Jews, “I’m bringing him out to you...I don’t find this man guilty of anything.” Jesus went outside...wearing the crown of thorns and the purple cape. Pilate said, “Look, here’s the man!” When the chief priests and the guards saw Jesus, they shouted, “Crucify him! Crucify him!” Pilate told them, "I don’t find this man guilty of anything.” (John 19:1-6 GWT) What an indictment! Condemning the only truly innocent Man! And yet, all humanity shares this shame without exception. ©Word-Strong_2013
