Jesus and Pilate

Scripture: Matthew 27:2-32, Mark 15:1-22, Luke 23:1-31, John 18:28-19:16

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will learn the Romans knew Jesus did not deserve to die, but finally gave in to the pressure from the Jewish leaders.
  • Students will learn Roman soldiers mocked and beat Jesus before he was nailed to the Cross.
  • Students will learn Jesus did not use the power he had to stop his sacrifice for our sins, even though he could have at any point in time.

Interesting Facts:

  • Beatings were with a leather whip that had many ends. Sharp objects were tied to these ends causing gashes in the flesh of anyone beaten. Forty lashes was considered the maximum beating and Jews routinely stopped after thirty-nine lashes to make sure the victim did not die from the beating.
  • The Praetorium was the governor’s mansion – in this case home to Pilate.
