Very often in our everyday life we, consciously or unconsciously, use ideas and expressions which are biblical, but do we know the meaning and significance of these invaluable words? Aren’t we using them inappropriately, out of place? The show “Reflections” touches upon these issues.
This expression is used in the following sense: to refuse some responsibility, not to get involved, not to take part in something. The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27:11-26, describes the trial of Jesus by the Roman court. Pilate asked, “Then what should I do with Jesus who is called Christ?” They all said, “Crucify him!” Pilate saw that he was getting nowhere and that a riot was starting. So he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. “I’m innocent of this man’s blood,” he said, “It’s your problem.” All the people replied, “Let his blood be on us and on our children.”
