HOPE , because during this whole episode in the last week of Jesus life here on earth, the religious leaders thought that they were manoeuvring events, when in fact Jesus was totally in control. Even during Jesus' 'trial' he frustrated the religious leaders no end, and Pilate eventually decided to give up. By directing all the proceedings, (unbeknown to those around him) this was Jesus' time to show his ultimate obedience to his Father and love for all people, thus giving us HOPE in resurrection and eternal life.
There is so much hatred and bitterness in our world, and especially directed towards Christians, that it is easy to become dragged down with all the gloom and doom, yet God has given us this wonderful promise of HOPE.
As you relive the events of Easter, "May the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit "( Romans 15:13.)
