    John 18:40 Then cried they all again, saying, Not this man, but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Jesus came to die for all sinners. Jesus is the redeemer.

    The Israelites DID NOT STEAL from the Egyptians; God took the Egyptians wealth and gave it to His people, for all that they suffered from the Egyptians. The LORD gave the lands of the Canaanites to His people, because the Canaanites were a completely ruined and filthy race; and God saw NOTHING in them worth saving! So shall it be when the time is up for the world; all shall be given to the Saints!

    V40, interesting that the Jews saved a thief. The Jews were thieves when leaving Egypt. When someone borrows something they refuse to return, that is theft. Steal from a Jew, the punishment is death. Deuteronomy 24:7 But if a Jew steals from a Jew when caught he just has to pay double, no death sentence.

    Jn. 18:38 - "What is truth?" From the book, "The Bible; it's origin and Use" by Word Aflame Elective Series; "Truth, the revelation of God and all things as He sees them, can only be found in the Scriptures."

    Jesus, in His earthly life, would not have 'signed' a contract with anybody. If He would have - He would also have called down angels to free Him.
