Matthew 27:2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pontius Pilate the governor.
I find this part of the story very interesting. Jesus was taken to Pilate, and he is the one ruler who sees that Jesus is innocent. He knows that Jesus has done nothing wrong and does not deserve crucifixion. However, Pilate is a lot like us. He sees that the people want Jesus dead, and he scummbs to their will. Thank Jesus for the price He paid.
Matthew 27:23 Then the governor said, “Why, what evil has He done?” But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
