Jesus had been up all night. He was hungry, tired, and had been walked from place to place in Jerusalem. The soldiers guarding him spat on him and called him names. He had been accused of lots of things that he had not done, and now he was facing the man who could release him or judge him. Jesus knew that his life was in danger, and yet he is calm and quietly answers Pilate’s questions. If you read the whole passage in the Bible, Pilate offers the crowds a chance to have Jesus released, but the same people who had been cheering him earlier in the week, shouted “crucify!”. Christians believe that when people blame you for something you haven’t done, Jesus is with you and strengthens you.
