Excellent job of depicting the famous Biblical story/passages. The dialogue, the interaction, and the overall entry was a very worthy and compelling read.

This will score well with the judges for sure!

Thanks. God bless~
This is frighteningly true and so powerfully written. Just excellent. I think your lines 'I sense a depth beyond mine' and 'personal comfort disappearing' highlight so accurately some of the issues going on within Pilate. Your title is perfect, and tragic. Thank you for writing such a great piece - only you could stand with such an amazing first sentence!!
Let those ideas bubble up some more! I so enjoyed this. The "first degree healing" line made me giggle. Good depiction of Pilate. Keep writing!
Another fine job here. I look forward to your stories every week. I think this one will do very well. God BLess
I know a common comment around here is show not tell, however, because of my love for drama this is a perfect soliloquy! You caught his voice - arrogant, unsure, grasping for control, and a little fear. Well done.
Well - here's another of your adoring fans with nothing left to say. It's been said already. You are just sooo good at this! But I think this tops 'em all.
Pilate's story is one that has haunted the ages. You've taken us into his thoughts, which at times made me smile when he considered the hypocrisy of the religious leaders. Your topic tie-in with the note written above the cross has the power to send chills. This is a powerful piece of writing.
Rivetting! "purr icily" - terrific word picture! I truly enjoyed this. Thank you.
What began with a fanciful line that made me smile as I'm a 'don't get your knickers in a bunch' gal, rapidly developed into an amazing and quite probable inner dialogue Pilate might have had. Your entries always captivate and intrigue!
Now to see it on stage!

I love how your title plays into the end. That twist was just right. Great work and showing just how things might have been playing through his head. I absolutely loved every word of it. Brilliant writing!
I love it! You've expressed the MC's character pretty much how I've imagined him to be, and you've given a familiar scene new life.
