TODAY’S MESSAGE COMES FROM        John 18:33-37

33 Pilate went back into the palace and called for Jesus.  He said, “Are you the ‘King of the Jews’?”  34 Jesus answered, “Are you saying this on your own, or did others tell you this about me?”  35 Pilate said, “Do I look like a Jew?  Your people and your high priests turned you over to me.  What did you do?”  36 “My kingdom,” said Jesus, “doesn’t consist of what you see around you.  If it did, my followers would fight so that I wouldn’t be handed over to the Jews.  But I’m not that kind of king, not the world’s kind of king.”  37 Then Pilate said, “So, are you a king or not?”  Jesus answered, “You tell me.  Because I am King, I was born and entered the world so that I could witness to the truth. Everyone who cares for truth, who has any feeling for the truth, recognizes my voice.”
