40 Days of Reflection - Wednesday-Saturday of Holy Week

When day came, the assembly of the elders of the people, both chief priests and scribes, gathered together, and they brought Jesus to their council. They said, “If you are the Messiah, tell us.” He replied, “If I tell you, you will not believe; and if I question you, you will not answer. But from now on the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the power of God. (Lk 22: 66-69)
Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, “I find no basis for an accusation against this man.” But they…. Said, “He stirs up the people by teaching throughout all Judea, from Galilee where he began even to this place.” Pilate… asked whether the man was a Galilean. When he learned that he was under Herod’s jurisdiction, he sent Jesus off to Herod, who was himself in Jerusalem at that time. When Herod saw Jesus, he was very glad, for he had been wanting to see him for a long time, because he heard about him and was hoping to see him perform some sign. He questioned him at some length, but Jesus gave him no answer… Then Herod put an elegant robe on Jesus, and sent him back to Pilate. (Lk 23: 4-11)
As they led Jesus away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, and they laid the cross on him, and made him carry it behind Jesus (Lk 23:26)
As the soldiers approached to offer Jesus wine, they called out, “If you are King of the Jews, save yourself.” Above him there was an inscription that read, “This is the King of the Jews.” (Lk 23: 36-38)
