Two Sons – v4

Their names are important
nothing is by chance
rich meaning
in these words

Both of them are
“sons of the father”
their names parallel
but such different paths

Jesus Barabbas
The revolutionary
insurrectionist, zealot,
trying to overthrow Rome

Jesus of Nazareth
The preacher
Messiah, the Son,
bringing love instead

Both standing before Pilate
the seat of power
the judgment of man
Jerusalem in fire that day

Barabbas to be freed
love going to the cross
to die for all our sin
to heal the breach within
