I was struck by the irony of the actions of the religious leaders.
"Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas
to the palace of the Roman governor.
By now it was early morning,

the Jews did not enter the palace;
they wanted to be able to eat the Passover." Jn 18:28
In the beginning of John's record of Jesus
he begins with;
"The next day John (the Baptist)
saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
"Look, the Lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world!" " Jn 1:29
These Jews who didn't want to be disqualified from

Who's Blood would save all
who believed in Him....
They 'missed' Him
of whom the ceremony was a foretelling shadow
