Pilate asked him, “Are you the ‘King of the Jews’?”
He answered, “If you say so.” The high priests let loose a barrage of accusations. Mark 15;2
They tried and tried to tangle our Lord in barbed wire with questions ,clever questions they thought.
But nothing they said could hold him fast upon the wire.
He replied to their questions not with the answers that were hoped for,
for he answered not with words that would condemn him,
he answered with questions which challenged their authority and understanding of the scriptures.
They tangled him in the wire because he knew his hour had come.
Nailed to the Cross for us and for our salvation,rising on the 3rd day, no longer held by the wire.
Escaping the wire that held him, setting us free to bear witness to his teaching here on earth.
