RKS Literature: Passage of the Day: Pontus Pilate’s View of Jesus

“Pilate had awakened, washed, anointed himself with aromatic oil, and was pacing nervously back and forth on the high solarium of his tower. He had never liked this Passover Day. The Jews drunk with their God, would work themselves into a frenzy, come to blows again with the Roman soldiers-and this year another massacre might break out, which was not in the best interest of Rome. This Passover he had a crucial worry. The Hebrews would by all means crucify the poor Nazarene, the crazy one….disgraceful race!”

Nikos Kazantzakis “The Last Temptation”, 1962
