“Jesus enters Pilate’s world. It’s not like Jesus is just witnessing to Pilate. He is doing that, but it is inseparable from incarnating, entering his world."
“Love moves toward people."
“Jesus forbears. It’s one of the fruits of the spirit, usually translated as patience, but a better translation would be forbearance. It’s the activity of absorbing someone’s evil. If forgiveness erases the guilt, forbearance absorbs the pain of the sin… What forgiveness and forbearance do is they clear the playing field for love."
