Josh discusses the stories of Jesus before Pilate and the Roman soldiers mocking Jesus before the crucifixion. We see Pilate's amazement at Jesus standing silently in the face of the accusations being brought against Him. We hear the crowd's choice for the freedom of Barabbas over the true Son of the Father. We are left to consider what it means to serve and suffer for the sake of another -- sitting in silence with another or suffering in silence for another -- as Jesus did for the sake of all of us. Mark 15:1-20; Luke 23:1-5; Matthew 27:16; John 1:14; Philippians 2:1-11.
