Pilate’s perception

 The crowd perceived that Jesus was more menacing than the murderer, Barabas. Pilate perceived that the crowd was driven by envious chief priests. What is our perception of Jesus? Is it influenced by what others have said or by the Word of God, the Bible- most authenticated compilation of ancient literature in all time. – Teresa

Mark 15: 6-10 (ESV)
“6 Now at the feast he used to release for them one prisoner for whom they asked. 7 And among the rebels in prison, who had committed murder in the insurrection, there was a man called Barabbas. 8 And the crowd came up and began to ask Pilate to do as he usually did for them. 9 And he answered them, saying, “Do you want me to release for you the King of the Jews?” 10 For he perceived that it was out of envy that the chief priests had delivered him up.”
