Passage: John 19:15-18, 36-37

1.  What do you think motivated the response of the Chief Priests in verse 15?  What answer would you have expected a priest of the most high God to have given instead?

2.  In verse 15, we see the people abruptly turning on Jesus, whom they had openly praised just a few days earlier.  What lesson can we learn from this about following the crowd?

3.  Try to imagine yourself in Pilate’s position.  How do you think he felt about having been manipulated into crucifying Jesus?  Would you have done differently in his position?

4.  Application:   If you have accepted Jesus, you have a new & eternal life ahead of you.  Are you living today as if you’ll be alive forever, and what does that mean to you?
