He had been wanting to see Jesus (Luke 23:6-12)

Pastor Michael Eichstadt, March 4, 2020
Part of the Advent series, preached at a Midweek Lent service

Luke 23:6-12
He had been wanting to see Jesus
Pilate sent Jesus to Herod. Herod, who could do almost anything he wanted, had an unfulfilled desire to see Jesus. It was ironic that he wanted to see Jesus only for entertainment, to see a miracle, not to see Jesus and believe in Him as his Lord and Savior. Our Lenten theme this year: “The Ironies of the Passion.”

Luke 23:6-12

6When Pilate heard of Galilee, he asked whether the man were a Galilaean. 7And as soon as he knew that he belonged unto Herod's jurisdiction, he sent him to Herod, who himself also was at Jerusalem at that time. 8And when Herod saw Jesus, he was exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a long season, because he had heard many things of him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by him. 9Then he questioned with him in many words; but he answered him nothing. 10And the chief priests and scribes stood and vehemently accused him. 11And Herod with his men of war set him at nought, and mocked him, and arrayed him in a gorgeous robe, and sent him again to Pilate. 12And the same day Pilate and Herod were made friends together: for before they were at enmity between themselves. (KJV)
