This is always an emotional section of the Gospel for me. It paints the picture of how much Jesus suffered on the cross. One of the areas that stood out to me this morning was how obviously innocent Jesus really was. How many times did the religious leaders hear they were killing an innocent man; Judas in verse 4 says, “I have sinned,” he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood.”; in verse 19 Pilate’s wife testifies to Pilate, “Don’t have anything to do with this innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.”. How blind did the religious leaders need to be to go after such a blatantly innocent man? In the end, the requirement for the forgiveness of our sin was the sacrifice of perfection. I feel unworthy and humbled by my savior’s love for me.
