I really enjoy the Coffee With Jesus cartoons from Radio Free Babylon and I especially like this one about Pontius Pilate.
I've always felt that Pilate got a bit of an unnecessarily unfair press for his role in Jesus' crucufiction. He was between a rock and a hard place thanks to the religious leaders of the day and they manipulated the situation to get the outcome they wanted.
The Nicene Creed tells us that "For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate", and whilst this is technically correct, it was the religious leaders that did the real damage.
Regardless of how we feel about Pilate and his guilt, we're all equally guilty with him! John 8:7
