John 18:28-40. After appearing before Annas, Caiaphas and The Sanhedrin, it is clear that the jewish leaders want christ to be put to death once and for all. The death sentence not being in their power, they take jesus to the Roman govenor to see that sentence carried out. In this amazing passage of scripture we see Jesus stand before Pilate in those final moments before he is sentenced to be scourged and crucified as Barabbas is set free.
