Today we continue a new series called “Journey to the Cross.” We begin by taking an in-depth look at the characters at the foot of the cross. This episode looks at The Priests and the crowd.
Here are the key points from this episode:
The priests easily manipulate the crowd
– A week earlier they were praising Jesus as He entered on Palm Sunday
– Corrupt leaders are capable of inducing a bad choice
Even though they chose Barabbas, they still had to make a decision about Jesus
– You don’t get rid of Jesus just because you choose another god
– Even today, the crowd will choose almost anything other than Jesus
“His blood be on us and on our children” was a prophetic statement, though they didn’t know that at the time.
– In AD 70 the city of Jerusalem was completely destroyed
– The blood of Jesus was shed for them and their children
Jesus still died for the priests and for the crowd.
