Why, when put to a vote did the people choose Barabbas over Jesus Christ, the unholy over the holy?  


Why did the multitude choose to crucify Jesus Christ?  


What crime did Jesus commit to warrant death in this cruel manner?  


Why the betrayal by Judas?  


Could it have been for power?


Power of Caesar. Power of kings.


During those crossroads in time, critical junctures, abuse of power, greed for power, ruled the day.  


The multitude failed to rise up and protect the holy from harm and do good.  


Yet, history does not have Jesus Christ destroyed, annihilated in death, in crucifixion.  


History has Jesus Christ transcending death and temporal bonds of Caesar, breathing life into our world and guiding the way in truth and salvation.  


False idols come and go, just as Caesars come and go, never will anything lacking in true substance last in the sands of time.  


It would be nice if people can rise above the noise and the clammer for power, protect from harm and do what the Lord requires in loving thy neighbor as self and live as Jesus would in the way, the truth and life.
