    3. No Voice for Safety (Matthew 27:13-14; John 19:9-11)
  2. THE SOLUTION OF PILATE (Matthew 27:15-18)

    2. To Give a Choice (Matthew 27:16-17; Deuteronomy 30:15-20)

Conclusion: John 1:10-12 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
