Today is Good Friday, the day Jesus was condemned to be crucified that is recognized in Christian tradition. What most people don’t know is today is also “give us Barabbas day”, that coincides with Pilates release of Barabbas who was chosen over Jesus to be released.
Scan the headlines to find out who was released. It works every time. I have been doing this now for about 8 years. Its almost like a twilight zone episode. Sometimes their obscure but you can still find them. Sometimes its a day during Holy Week, so its really “Give us Barabbas week”, but why split hairs.
Its a day or week when the innocent are condemned and guilty are freed.
Todays headline 4-2-21
“Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker granted a sentence commutation Thursday to a 57-year-old inmate who has served nearly three decades behind bars following his conviction in a 1990 Chicago double murder case.
The Democrat governor’s move came after a Cook County judge ruled last year that Gerald Reed should remain in prison because his rights were never violated, as he had claimed, according to The Associated Press.”
