“What I Have Written, I Have Written” John 19:19-24

The Word of God is so much more than some pages written between two covers of a book.  Listen today as Pastor Bob discusses some of the reasons for why God’s Word is so important, and why would never try to add to it, subtract from it, or change it in any way.  Rather we should allow it to guide our lives as we follow it faithfully.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 19:16-18

The Crucifixion of Jesus

19 Pilate had a notice prepared and fastened to the cross. It read: Jesus of Nazareth, the king of the jews. 20 Many of the Jews read this sign, for the place where Jesus was crucified was near the city, and the sign was written in Aramaic, Latin and Greek. 21 The chief priests of the Jews protested to Pilate, “Do not write ‘The King of the Jews,’ but that this man claimed to be king of the Jews.”

22 Pilate answered, “What I have written, I have written.”

23 When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.

24 “Let’s not tear it,” they said to one another. “Let’s decide by lot who will get it.”

This happened that the scripture might be fulfilled that said,

“They divided my clothes among them

    and cast lots for my garment.”[a]

So this is what the soldiers did.
