It's Day 51 and we're in John 19.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 30 - He didn't say "I am finished," as though it overwhelmed Him. He said, "It is finished," meaning that His mission was accomplished.
- Verse 11 - Among those responsible in this travesty of justice, Pilate bore the lesser share.
- Verse 12 - Pilate was an embattled leader by this point in his career and could not chance another uprising without potentially losing his throne. So when the people said that refusing to do this made him "no friend of Caesar," they were hitting him where it hurt: the potential loss of his power.
