Barabbas or Jesus...The Trial of Your Mind

Here we will share with you a mystical version of the trial of Jesus. This trial takes place in the mind, not in the pages of history. Pontious Pilate is the personification of Logic and Reasoning. He asks Jesus, who is the personification of Truth, "What is the Truth?"  Jesus does not answer because he knows that there is no way for Logic and Reasoning to understand the Truth. Pilate gives up and turns him over to the crowd who clamour to release Barabbas, the robber, and crucify Jesus. Barabbas is the personification of that which denies, or robs, you of your desires... and he has been turned loose on the crowd ever since. Jesus is also synonomous with the Imagination and it is your Imagination that creates your salvation.

Here it is in this transcribed lecture of Neville Goddard. You can also read our last year's Good Friday post with this link

Tonight's subject is "Barabbas or Jesus." This is the greatest trial that ever took place in eternity. You have read of trials in countries where billions are involved. It means nothing compared to this trial. This is the greatest of all trials. When we read the scriptures we find things like the raising of Lazarus, which is the most fantastic thing you can imagine. A man who was dead for four days and his sister said: "By this time there is an odor" and he raises Lazarus, and yet only one Evangelist records it - only John tells the story. Matthew, Mark, and Luke do not mention the story of Lazarus. How could you tell the story of a man in this world who could raise someone who had decayed and bring him back to life, as we understand life, and not tell it as part of his biography? I could take you through the many stories and show you that one story is told by two, and sometimes three, and only by one, but here, in this story of the trial, all mention it. It has tremendous significance. The story of the greatest trial that ever took place in eternity.

May I tell you: it is taking place here tonight and you are the witnesses. You are the ones who will
