Pilate

Matthew 27:19  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of Him.
Pilate’s wife sent a very clear message to her husband to leave Jesus alone - to not condemn Him. Pilate did not listen to his wife’s warning and history records that he soon lost his place of power and honor as well as his life - possibly by suicide. After death is the judgment. Pilate now waits righteous judgment by the very One he judged unrighteously. “What do you think of Christ?” is a question that Jesus asked a few days before His death. Pilate’s answer determined his destiny. Your eternal destiny also hangs on your answer to that question.
