A CHRISTIAN SOCIAL NETWORK & CHRISTIAN NEWS PAPER IN MALAYALAM
Pilate does everything he can to win Jesus' release, short of releasing him. Three times he says publicly that Jesus is innocent. We see him turning, twisting, squirming as he tries to avoid standing up for what he knows to be true. His final verdict: "He handed Jesus over to them to deal with as they wished." Pilate leaves the scene, a pathetic figure.
The last phrase in the above passage would be more accurately translated, "he handed Jesus over to their will," Jesus had wrestled with his will, and the Father's will ("not my will but yours be done"). Now he faces "their will." It doesn't seem fair.
