blasphemy as a cause for death, the
charge against Jesus, before Pilate,
was a totally different one, namely.
that Jesus was a seditionist and raiser
of disturbance; that he claimed to be
a king and that his freedom was in

prity and gentle dignity, it must have
seemed ridiculous that such a person
should be arraigned as a seditionist
