Nov 25 Pilate went inside the palace, called Jesus, and asked, “Are you the king of the Jews?”
Jesus asked, “Is that your idea or others’?”
Pilate replied, “I am not a Jew, am I? Your people and their chief priests brought you to me. What have you done?”
“My kingdom2 is not earthly, if it were, my officers would fight to prevent my arrest. My kingdom is elsewhere,” Jesus replied.
“You are a real king!” Pilate exclaimed.
Jesus answered, “As you say, I’m a king. I was born3 into this world to testify to this truth.4 Everyone who is of the truth believes me.”
