Pilate wanted to govern wisely, and probably he thought wisely means shrewdly, he knew the truth, yet to flow along with the circumstance he ordered the Lord to be crucified and before the Crucifixion he ordered our Lord's scourging and beating, after which He was beyond recognition and then Pilate presents Him before the people saying....
"Now it was the Preparation Day of the Passover, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Jews, "Behold your King!" "
John 19:14 (New King James Version)
Pilate scourged Jesus to please the crowd, he mockingly said 'Behold your King!', yet with His sacrifice for us, our Lord truly is the King of our lives.
The kings of the world may conquer enemies or neighbouring kingdoms for their people, our Lord has conquered death for us. He is the King!!!
The Kings of the world may provide money and security to their people, our Lord has provided us the peace that surpasses all understanding. He is the King!!!
The Kings of the world desire all goodness for themselves first, our God has considered us above all and laid down His life for us. Truly, He is the King!!!
The people at that time did mock Jesus our Lord, yet He remained quiet, for He knew that its only a process for our forgiveness, sanctification and glory..
He is the King!!!
