Sometimes things get pretty turned around. Shine bright anyways!
Engaged and it was only three weeks before he was to be married, but Bonhoeffer was taken to the gallows in Germany and then executed at age 39. Man! Hate that when decent people die and evil folk live on. So many inequities.
At 33 innocent, blameless, and sinless Jesus suffered not one illegal trial but six of em (see Mk. 15, Lk. 23). Very serious all that happened.
"Then Pilate asked Him again, saying, 'Do you answer nothing? See how many things they testify against You!' But Jesus still answered nothing, so that Pilate marveled" (vv. 4-5).
It's part of the irony of eartly exsistence when common sense is trumped by hard or even soft-core folly. It still happens.
"Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong on the throne." ~ James Russell Lowell
That will change. Will we before it's too late....allow Christ to change us from the inside out?
