    That seems highly unlikely.

    The release of a Jewish prisoner was customary at the feast of Passover (Mark 15:6). The choice Pilate set before the crowd that day could not have been more clear-cut: Jesus Barabbas, a high-profile killer and agitator who was unquestionably guilty, or Jesus of Nazareth, a teacher and miracle-worker who was obviously innocent. The crowd chose Barabbas to be released.

    I Am Barabbas

    1. He was a rebel.

    I, too, am a rebel. Despite the benevolent rule of my King, I have both willingly and by my very nature participated in heinous acts of rebellion against the rightful rule of the God of the Universe.

    2. He was a murderer.

    I, too, am a murderer. Not just of my fellow man, having wished them harm, but of Jesus Christ whose life I have chanted for through my varied and sundry acts of despicable sin. I have chanted along with the crowd, “Crucify! Crucify!” for I saw Him as a threat to my commitment to my own desires.

    3. He, though guilty, was released and an innocent was punished in his stead.

    I, too, have been released. The punishment that was rightfully due to me has been handed down to another. Someone – an innocent man – has been crucified in my place.

    I am Barabbas.

    You, too, are Barrabas.

    "Anybody can believe in God. What it means to be a Christian is to believe God, to trust him when he speaks, which does not require a leap of faith or a crucifixion of the intellect. It requires a crucifixion of pride."

    RC is a bit of a douche but always liked this one

    Nothing could be more irrational than the idea that something comes from nothing.
    even though he stole it.

    All the best thoughts are stolen. Thieves are always smarter than those who were taught.

    I love how that would also mean that Christianity is irrational

    Faith in the supernatural is inherently irrational, yet the beauty in a faith that accepts divinity is unknowable, understands nothing is absolute and where doubt is felt through not conquered is a wonder to behold. I can only imagine what it is to experience this particular passion. Rarely a jealous man, I am wise enough to fleetingly, in moments when the glory of creation slows me, wish to know it.

    The sermon of St John Chrysostom, sung during the Paschal service. Happy Pascha everyone. Christ is risen!

    If anyone is devout and a lover of God, let him enjoy this beautiful and radiant festival.

    If anyone is a wise servant, let him, rejoicing, enter into the joy of his Lord.

    If anyone has wearied himself in fasting, let him now receive his recompense.

    If anyone has labored from the first hour, let him today receive his just reward.
    If anyone has come at the third hour, with thanksgiving let him keep the feast.
    If anyone has arrived at the sixth hour, let him have no misgivings; for he shall suffer no loss.
    If anyone has delayed until the ninth hour, let him draw near without hesitation.
    If anyone has arrived even at the eleventh hour, let him not fear on account of his delay.
    For the Master is gracious and receives the last, even as the first; he gives rest to him that comes at the eleventh hour, just as to him who has labored from the first.
    He has mercy upon the last and cares for the first; to the one he gives, and to the other he is gracious.
    He both honors the work and praises the intention. Enter all of you, therefore, into the joy of our Lord, and, whether first or last, receive your reward.
    O rich and poor, one with another, dance for joy!
    O you ascetics and you negligent, celebrate the day!
    You that have fasted and you that have disregarded the fast, rejoice today!
    The table is rich-laden; feast royally, all of you!
    The calf is fatted; let no one go forth hungry!
    Let all partake of the feast of faith.
    Let all receive the riches of goodness.

    Let no one lament his poverty, for the universal kingdom has been revealed.
    Let no one mourn his transgressions, for pardon has dawned from the grave.
    Let no one fear death, for the Saviour's death has set us free.
    He that was taken by death has annihilated it!
    He descended into hades and took hades captive!
    He embittered it when it tasted his flesh!

    And anticipating this Isaiah exclaimed, "Hades was embittered when it encountered thee in the lower regions."
    It was embittered, for it was abolished!
    It was embittered, for it was mocked!
    It was embittered, for it was purged!
    It was embittered, for it was despoiled!
    It was embittered, for it was bound in chains!
    It took a body and met God!

    It took earth and encountered heaven!
    It took what it saw but crumbled before what it had not seen!

    "O death, where is thy sting? O hades, where is thy victory?"

    Christ is risen, and you are overthrown!
    Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen!
    Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice!
    Christ is risen, and life reigns!
    Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in a tomb!

    For Christ, being raised from the dead, has become the First-fruits of them that slept.
    To him be glory and might unto ages of ages. Amen.
