Though there is a sense in which these people—the priests and scribes and Pharisees, the members of the Sanhedrin—knew very well what they were doing—they were murdering an innocent man—yet it is probably also true that in their spiritual blindness and the hardness of their own hearts they did not fully understand to Whom they were doing it.
What’s a man to do? That’s a great question! . . . precisely because being a man has never been about WHAT we do. It’s always been about WHO we are.
