We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.

 

Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.

 

  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

 

# 221 Escape Route from Conviction

By Arla, Mar 5 2019 02:00AM

The priests panic, if Pilate knows their charge is religious, he'll dismiss it! Perjuring themselves, pretending, they yell, "He was speaking against Rome, forbidding taxes, saying he's king!"


Pilate turns to Jesus and asks, "Are you king of the Jews?"


"You would say so," says Jesus his face lighting from within.


Angry priests demand his death, stirring the mob into an uproar with help from Satan and his evil angels.


Pilate looks at Jesus and knows their charges are false. "Aren't you going to answer their charges?"


Jesus' silence causes Pilate to move him further inside and ask again, "Are you king of the Jews?"


"Are you asking? Or repeating what you've heard?" Jesus gives Spirit time to work.


Pilate understands the question, but pride stifles conviction, "Am I a Jew? Your own people have brought you. What have you done?"


"My kingdom isn't from this world, if it were my servants would fight."


"You are a king then?"


"That is what you would call it. I was born and came into the world to give witness to the truth. Everyone who wants truth responds to me."


"What is truth?" Pilate feels a desire to know, but he doesn't wait for an answer, noise from outside distracting him.


Going out he motions for quiet and says, "I find no fault in him."


Rebuked, rage-crazy priests know Pilate's weakness and threaten him with losing Caesar's favor. "He stirs up everyone from Galilee to here!"


Galilee! Herod's jurisdiction! Pilate sees his escape, seizes opportunity, and sends Jesus to Herod.


Matthew 27:11-14,  Mark 15:2-5,  Luke 23:1-7,  John 18:33-38
