replied that he wasn't part of those that killed Jesus. But then rev Stegen explained to
him that Jesus died so that we could have peace with God and the wall of enmity be
removed. He replied that he never saw it like that before but now he understood and saw
Jesus for the first time. As he said that his eyes were opened.

They wrote what they wrote just to mock Him. Pilot was playing politics. He was mocking
both Jesus and the Jews.
