Pilate therefore went forth again, and said to them, Behold, I bring him forth to you, that you may know that I find no fault in him.
Alas! it was discoursing to wolves about the innocence of the lamb.
(W. H. Van Doren, D. D.)It is very noteworthy that this expression is used three times by Pilate in the same Greek words in St. John's account of the passion (chap. John 18:38; 19:4-6). It was meet and right that he who had the chief hand in slaying the Lamb of God, the Sacrifice for our sins, should three times publicly declare that he found no spot or blemish in Him. He was proclaimed a Lamb without spot or fault, after a searching examination, by him that slew Him.
