Judges are often not popular people. When a verdict is determined, the
judge is condemning someone to punishment. Good judges have the
responsibility to punish wrong doing. In one sense Pilate was a bad judge
because Christ did not deserve to die – He had done nothing wrong. But in
another sense, Pilate was a good judge because He sentenced Jesus to the
punishment that was required – Christ’s death for our sin! Jesus Christ,
the True Judge, get’s judged for our wrong doing. Because of that, you and
I are forgiven and free. Thanks be to God!
