Just a few thoughts. Why did God allow Pilate to free Barabbas?
The name means, 2 parts Bar-son and Abba is father. So son of the father. And not just any son but Abba’s son, a closer connection.
So God allowed a man from the Rome insurrection to be set free and Jesus died in his place, just as He did for all mankind. So that we could be with Him forever with no end, wow.
