Jesus Before Pilate (John 18:28-19:16)

PDF of Lesson Notes

The Jewish leader Caiaphas hands Jesus over to Pilate to be questioned, tortured and murdered. When we consider that Jesus' life was characterized by kindness to the poor, healing the sick, and a message of love for all mankind, why was it that so many people wanted to kill him? This lesson seeks to answer this question, involving Jesus as a witness to the truth. The lesson also addresses whether some sins are greater than others, which appears to be assumed in Jesus' exchange with Pilate.
