Pontius Pilate the Politician: GodArchy Podcast Episode 2.6

You can’t trust politicians!

Pontius Pilate is the archetypical politician, and the way Pilate handled Jesus’s trial teaches a lot of lessons about political power, the political process, democracy — and why we shouldn’t trust any of it.

In this episode of the GodArchy podcast, I talk about some of these lessons.

Walking through the account of Jesus’s trial before Pilate, I delve into a number of spiritual and political issues including the characteristics that make Pilate the quintessential politician, the implications of the crowd choosing Barabbas over Jesus, the danger of democracy, and why we shouldn’t ever count on the political process to make the world a more peaceful or prosperous place.
