  • Christ Before Pilate, Pilate Before Christ

    Contributed by John Gaston on Feb 13, 2017

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Apr 30, 2016
    based on 1 rating

    Pilate's Wife Matt. 27:11-26 The chief priests with the elders and scribes and the whole council of the Sanhedrin had decided to put Jesus to death. They had Jesus brought before Pilate the governor to pronounce the death sentence. (Mark 15:1; Luke 22:66; 23:1) Pontius Pilate was the fifth more

  • Passover Jesus To Pilate

    Contributed by Geoffrey Foot on Mar 24, 2018
