As this section concludes, the people demand that Barabbas be released instead of Jesus.  It was customary during the Passover for one prisoner to be released.  Barabbas was guilty, but Jesus was innocent.  Yet, Jesus is condemned instead of Barabbas. 

What we see in that scene is the innocent condemned in the place of the guilty.  Is this not what Jesus has done for His people? Listen to “Condemned He Stood” from Luke 23:1-25
