The Strangest of Foursomes

Artwork for The King's Commission: A Study of Matthew 21-28

Jesus was a completely innocent man. However, He faced, not one, but six trials—each one more bizarre than the last.

Matthew 27:11–26 tells of a rather strange group at the fourth trial: Jesus the innocent captive, Pilate the vacillating judge, Barabbas the notorious prisoner, and Mrs. Pilate the judge’s wife.

Each of these people had a story to tell, and Pastor Chuck Swindoll explains how each of their examples are instructive for Christians today.
