I Am Barabbas – Mark 15:6-15

In an effort to free Jesus, Pilate offered the Jews the opportunity to choose between Jesus, the innocent Lamb of God, and Barabbas, a known insurrectionist and murderer.  The people chose Barabbas, and Jesus went to the cross instead.  Each one of us is in the place of Barabbas.  We deserve the punishment, but Jesus took our place in order to set us free.
