JESUS IS CONDEMDED TO DEATH (The Fourth Cup & Lamb of God)
In John, it says, “It was preparation day for Passover, and it was about noon. And he (Pilate) said to the Jews, "Behold, your king!" (John 19:14) Jesus was condemned to death at noon. What time were the lambs chosen for slaughter by the high priests? Noon. Pilate says, “Behold, your king.” Now the lambs were chosen for slaughter - they were declared unblemished. This is the priest’s duty to select the unblemished lambs. Well Jesus is the unblemished lamb of this Passover. Who determines if Jesus is the new lamb and if He is unblemished? None other than Pontius Pilate himself. It’s recorded in Luke, “Pilate then addressed the chief priests and the crowds, "I find this man not guilty." (Luke 23:4) Pilate declares three times that this man is not guilty. And also in Luke it’s recorded that “The centurion who witnessed what had happened glorified God and said, "This man was innocent beyond doubt." (Luke 23:47)
