"The opening statement in our study is frightening (at least it should be). God knows our hearts! Not the one we rationalize sin away with—our real hearts!

"(Pilot) was not innocent. Even not knowing (or caring) about who Jesus was, Pilate was responsible to God to guard his position of authority and do what is right!

Every one of us has to make our own decision about Jesus—what we are going to do with Him."
