Pilate did not know what to do with Jesus, and when the governor learned that Jesus was from Galilee, Pilate sought to hand Jesus over to someone else,
“When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked if the Man were a Galilean. And as soon as he knew that He belonged to Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Him to Herod, who was also in Jerusalem at that time” (Luke 23:6-7).
That may have worked with other people, but no one can so easily dispense with Jesus, for He is the Son of God, and we must all make a decision about Him.
Whom have you decided He is?
