The Verdict: Innocent but Crucify (Luke 23:13-25)
Introduction: The Jesus of History is the Christ of Faith Jesus before Pilate Again: (23:13-17)
Jesus is clearly proclaimed to be the Innocent Messiah in the midst of false charges.
• False Charges (23:13-14a)
• Proclaimed Innocent (23:14b-15)
• Appeasing Punishment (23:16)
Jesus as a Substitute for a Sinner: (23:18-25)
Jesus is condemned to die while truly innocent and Barabbas is released from his condemnation while truly guilty.
• Substitute Demanded (23:18-19)
• Plea Rejected (23:20-21)
• Proclaimed Innocent (23:22)
• Substitution Secured (23:23-25)
Jesus was declared to be innocent and became a substitute for a guilty man.
