Once more Pilate came out and said to the Jews gathered there, "Look, I am bringing him out to you to let you know that I find no basis for a charge against him."
Pilate shows a few times that he could find no charge worthy of death for Jesus. He knows this, but goes on to let the crowd determine what Jesus' fate will be, he feels uncomfortable, but won't take a stand. This, of course, fulfills scripture.
Do we take stand, as well as back it up, when confronted with anything that's against what Jesus would want? It's often easy to know what to do when we're not under pressure, but harder to act when the pressure is on. I pray for strength that I would take that stand and back it up when under pressure.
