Passion for life – Rejected

Jesus has been arrested, subject to an illegal trial, and is now led before Pilate, the Roman prefect of Judea. The Jews claim he is a ‘political threat to Rome’. Jesus explains to Pilate that his ‘kingdom is not of this world’ and that his reason for coming to earth was to ‘testify to the truth’. Pilate sees no evidence for any political charge to be brought against Jesus – the Jew’s, however, want Jesus dead and will stop at nothing to see this accomplished.
