This is a story that can happen anywhere at any time, and we are as likely to be the perpetrators as the victims. I doubt that many of us will end up playing Annas, Caiaphas or Pilate, however. They may have been the ones who gave Jesus the death sentence, but a large part of him had already died before they ever got to him – the part Judas killed off, then Peter, then all those who fled. Those are the roles with our names on them – not the enemies but the friends.
