Tim Johnson: Sitting, standing, running, rising
When reading the events of and surrounding the crucifixion of Christ, it is interesting to watch how people respond. The self-righteousness of Caiaphas, the high priest, refuses to put the blood money that came from the treasury back into the coffers. Gov. Pilate struggles with his agonizing question, “What is truth?” Peter, in tears, goes from expressing loyalty till death to thrice denying Jesus within a handful of hours. Hopeless John, deserted by the other apostles and unable to save his Savior, does what he can to support and console Jesus’ mother, Mary. Judas, the traitor, overwhelmed with guilt ends his life by hanging in a tree.
