John 19:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him. 11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
In the text Jesus has been delivered to Pilate to be crucified. Pilate was wrestling with the fact that Jesus was going to be killed, but he gave the okay of the crucifixion of our Lord as it was foretold.
What stands outs out to me is Jesus’ response to Pilate. ” Therefore the one who delivered me to you has the greater sin”. How many times are people charged wrongly and they are innocent? We see this on a daily basis. God knows the injustice. He knows how great the wrong. The one who committed the wrong will be judged!
Psalm 50: 1-2,4-6 King James Version (KJV)
The mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof.
2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.
4 He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth, that he may judge his people.
5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
6 And the heavens shall declare his righteousness: for God is judge himself. Selah.
