Christ Presented to the People, or “Ecce Homo”.  Drypoint print by Rembrandt van Rijn, the eight state of this work.

“This innocent man,” is how Pilate’s wife described Jesus.

“I am innocent,” Pilate proclaimed as he sentenced Jesus to death.

Clearly, they could not both be innocent. The judge was either guilty of condemning an innocent person, or he was innocent and the accused was guilty.

As was so often the case when people met Jesus, we see Pilate’s character revealed. Pilate concluded “there was nothing he could do.”

When God’s people thought of the temple, they thought of the very presence of God. It was the throne seat of God. They traveled from around the world to enter and, in God’s very presence, to offer their thanksgiving, to receive healing, to pray for their needs, to be taught from scripture, and to be forgiven for their sins.

Jesus had been travelling from one town to another, doing just those things.

Jesus is now the centre of God very presence on earth.

Whoever wants to speak with God, whoever is seeking healing or forgiveness, whoever wishes to thank come, must now come to Jesus. Jesus’ prophetic actions against the temple predicted it’s destruction – it was no longer needed. This event likely sealed his fate with with the powers that be in Jerusalem.

 

By Whose Authority…

“By Whose Authority…”
AUTHORITY….We live in a society dependent upon authority. In Jesus day, religious authority was extremely important. However, in Matt. 21: 23-32, the Pharisees asked Jesus what his authority was for the things he was proclaiming. Jesus was caught in what we might refer to today as a “catch 22” situation. Jesus knew that if he gave a straight answer this would result in the final crisis before he had finished his work. Jesus responded using a Rabbinic tradition. What was that tradition?

Questions to be answered: How did Jesus explain where is his authority came from? Is the Bible just a human book? Or does the Bible have divine authority? Is Jesus described as the Word of God in the scriptures? Is the Bible referred to as the Word of God? How you answer these questions influences your life journey immensely. Hearing and reading about the teachings of Jesus is not enough. We must apply these teachings to our daily lives. Talking the talk is not enough. Good intentions are not enough. We must walk the walk.

As followers of Jesus Christ, what is required of us?
