Day 52 – Barabbas

Who is the man that is spared in place of Jesus?

Little is known about him for certain. Some authorities say he is a thief, others a murderer. Some suggest that he was a political revolutionary that killed a Roman soldier in a riot. Sometimes he is called “Jesus Barabbas”, sometimes just “Barabbas”.

But one thing we know for certain, the name “Barabbas” is “Bar” and “Abba”, meaning “Son of the Father.” So when Jesus is condemned to death we see the true son of the Father being exchanged for a false one. Therefore, one must be vigilant to avoid making the same mistake in our own lives.
