The Death Sentence
Topic: New Testament Scripture: Matthew 27:1–27:26
While the Jewish leadership could condemn Jesus to death, they actually didn't have the authority to execute Him. For that, they would need the involvement of the Roman Governor, Pontus Pilate. This Sunday we will look at the passage where Jesus is given the death sentence by the Romans - a sentence that will be carried out within hours of it being handed down. A sentence that, in reality, should be ours.
