Stations of The Cross

First Station: Jesus is condemned to death.

The chief priests with the elders and the scribes, that is, the whole Sanhedrin, held a council. They bound Jesus, led him away, and handed him over to Pilate. “Are you the king of the Jews?” Pilate asked him. Jesus replied, “You say so.”

The chief priests accused him of many things. Again Pilate questioned him, “Have you no answer? See of how many things they accuse you!”

Jesus gave him no further answer.  To that Pilate was amazed. Pilate, wishing to satisfy the crowd, released Barabbas, and handed Jesus over to be crucified. Mark 15: 1-5, 15.

The crowd in the streets were jubilant, they would see this man executed, this preacher from Galilee who raised doubts about their faith.

Further away, Peter was sobbing after denying Jesus three times. Judas returned to the elders of the city desperate to return their money. It was too late. Judas fled to meet his own death.

In the courtyard, the procession was ready, the gates were opened. The soldiers led the way, Jesus followed. He's weak, hardly able to stand but with great dignity He moves forward.
