What does the Great Commission have to do with mobile devices? More than you might think.
27 When morning came, aall the chief priests and elders of the people plotted against Jesus to put Him to death. 2 And when they had bound Him, they led Him away and bdelivered Him to 1Pontius Pilate the governor.
3 cThen Judas, His betrayer, seeing that He had been condemned, was remorseful and brought back the thirty dpieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, 4 saying, “I have sinned by betraying innocent blood.”
And they said, “What is that to us? You see to it!”
5 Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and edeparted, and went and hanged himself.
6 But the chief priests took the silver pieces and said, “It is not lawful to put them into the treasury, because they are the price of blood.” 7 And they consulted together and bought with them the potter’s field, to bury strangers in. 8 Therefore that field has been called fthe Field of Blood to this day.
9 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by Jeremiah the prophet, saying, g“And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the value of Him who was priced, whom they of the children of Israel priced, 10 and hgave them for the potter’s field, as the Lord directed me.”
11 Now Jesus stood before the governor. iAnd the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?”
13 Then Pilate said to Him, l“Do You not hear how many things they testify against You?” 14 But He answered him not one word, so that the governor marveled greatly.
15 mNow at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished. 16 And at that time they had a notorious prisoner called 2Barabbas. 17 Therefore, when they had gathered together, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to release to you? Barabbas, or Jesus who is called Christ?” 18 For he knew that they had handed Him over because of nenvy.
20 oBut the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitudes that they should ask for Barabbas and destroy Jesus. 21 The governor answered and said to them, “Which of the two do you want me to release to you?”
They said, p“Barabbas!”
They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”
23 Then the governor said, q“Why, what evil has He done?”
But they cried out all the more, saying, “Let Him be crucified!”
24 When Pilate saw that he could not prevail at all, but rather that a 3tumult was rising, he rtook water and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of this 4just Person. You see to it.”
25 And all the people answered and said, s“His blood be on us and on our children.”
