Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture/Principles are Aims for each Division):

1.Pilate offers to release Jesus when he can find no basis to charge him, but the Jews want Barabbas. (18:28-40)

Principle: Jesus should be our priority if we are on the side of truth.

2.Jesus is flogged, mocked with a crown of thorns and a purple robe, and carries his own cross to Golgotha. (19:1-17)

Principle: All power and authority exercised on earth is given from God above.

Obedience to authority on earth is obedience to God.


Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure showing exactly where you are in Scripture):

Pilate releases Barabbas and Jesus carries His cross to Golgotha.


Aim (“To Cause My Audience To…” Know, See, etc.):

TCMATK When Jesus is a believer’s first priority, Christ equips that believer to do whatever is necessary to accomplish God’s will.


Application (not yes or no question.  Meant to bring about life change):

1.What do you want more than you want Jesus and how might you change your behavior to make Christ your priority?

How are you prioritizing Jesus over other things in your life and how have you experienced His pleasure for doing so?

2.In what way are you allowing your witness for Christ to be negatively influenced by the people around you rather than positively directed by God and how will you silence those voices and take a stand for Jesus?

How are you encouraging believers you know to take a stand for Christ?
