Reading:  Matthew 27:1-2; 11-66

Dear Friends, Barabbas is a shocking character.  Not  shocking in the sense of what happens to him.  Shocking in the sense of his connection to Jesus.  Shocking in what it reveals about us and why Jesus suffered, bled and died.  Tonight we mourn.  We mourn our sin.  But, we also rejoice.  Rejoice in the love of Jesus for us.

Peace, Pastor Dave
