THE CRUCIFIXION AND THE RESURRECTION
When the morning came, the priests met once more with all the chief Jews,
and said Jesus must die. But the Jews could not put anyone to death. The
Romans would not allow it. So they took Jesus to the Roman governor,
whose name was Pontius Pilate.
40
When Judas saw that the priests had made up their minds to kill Jesus, he
began to feel very unhappy. He did not care for the money now. He came
to the Temple, and brought it back to the priest, and said, ‘It was very wrong
of me to give Jesus up to you. He had done nothing wrong.’ But their
hearts were as hard as stone. They said to Judas, ‘What is that to us? See
thou to that.’ Then Judas had no hope left. He flung the thirty pieces of
silver down in the Court of the Priests, and went and hung himself. But oh!
what a pity that he did not go to Jesus and ask Jesus to forgive him, instead
of going to the priests!
Jesus is a good, kind, loving Master. When we do wrong, if we are very
sorry, like Peter, and will come and ask Jesus, He will forgive us. For
‘THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST, GOD’S SON, CLEANSETH US
FROM ALL SIN.’
Pilate took Jesus inside his splendid palace, away from the Jews, and asked
Him, ‘Art thou a King then?’
41
‘Yes,’ Jesus said, ‘but My kingdom is not of this world. I came into this
world to teach people the truth. That is the reason I was born.’
‘What is truth?’ said Pilate. But he did not wait for an answer. He went out
again to the Jews.
When the Jews saw Pilate again, they began to tell him lies which they had
been making up about Jesus. And Jesus stood by and said nothing.
Presently Pilate said to Jesus, ‘See what a number of things they are saying
against you. Have you nothing to say?’
But Jesus did not answer one single word, and Pilate was greatly surprised.
He felt sure that the quiet prisoner was right and that the Jews were wrong;
and he said to the priests and to the people, ‘I find in Him no fault at all.’
It was the custom for Pilate at Passover time to set free from prison any one
prisoner the people liked to ask for. So Pilate said to the crowd, ‘Shall I let
Jesus go?’ Then the priests told the people what to say, and they shouted,
‘Not this man, but Barabbas.’
Pilate wanted very much to let Jesus go, and he said, ‘What shall I do then
with Jesus?’
The crowd shouted, ‘Let Him be crucified! Crucify Him! Crucify Him!’
‘Why,’ said Pilate, ‘what has He done wrong? He does not deserve to die. I
will scourge Him and let Him go.’
Then the people cried out more loudly than ever, ‘Let Him be crucified!
Crucify Him!’
But Pilate did not want to be shouted at for five or six days and nights again.
And, besides, he rather wanted to please the Jews if he could, because he had
done many things to vex them; so he thought, ‘I will do what they wish.’
But first he had a basin of water brought, and he washed his hands before all
the people, and said, ‘I have nothing to do with the blood of this good Man.
See ye to it.’ And all the people answered and said, ‘His blood be on us, and
on our children.’ Sometimes now, when we don’t want to have anything to
do with a thing, we say, ‘I wash my hands of it.’ But Pilate did have
something to do with the death of Jesus, and water would not wash away
that sin.
And at last, wishing to please them, Pilate had Barabbas brought out of
prison, and gave Jesus up to be beaten. The Roman soldiers seized Jesus,
42
and took off His clothes and put a scarlet dress on Him, to imitate the
Emperor’s purple robe; and they twisted pieces of a thorny plant which
grows round Jerusalem into the shape of a crown, and put it on His head;
and they put a reed in His hand for a sceptre. And then all the soldiers fell
down before Jesus, and said, ‘Hail, King of the Jews.’ And then they spit at
Jesus, and slapped Him; and they snatched the reed out of His hands and
struck Him on the head, so as to drive in the thorns.
Outside the city gate, on the north side of Jerusalem, there is a round hill,
called the Place of Stoning. On one side of that hill there is a straight yellow
cliff, and prisoners used sometimes to be thrown down from that cliff, and
then stoned. And sometimes they were taken to the top of that round hill
and crucified. It is very likely that this is where the soldiers took Jesus.
