Pontius Pilate

My key figure is Pontius Pilate. Pontius Pilate was a leader in Judea who was persuaded by the Jewish authorities to crucify Jesus against his will.  He did not believe that Jesus had done anything wrong, but he didn't want anything to do with it and he didn't want to start a riot, so he said it was up to them and he didn't want anything to do with it.

Pontius Pilate was a strong leader in Judea, but he still bowed down to the Jewish high priests and authorities, who wanted Jesus dead.  Because Pontius Pilate gave in to the authorities, Jesus died on the cross. That tells me that if we give in to people telling you to do something wrong when you can stop it, something bad might happen.

In my opinion, Pontius Pilate was not necessarily a bad person, he just made a bad choice. In some ways it was good that Pontius Pilate made that decision, because if he hadn't, then Jesus wouldn't have died on the cross to save our sins.

It was a beautiful day in the grass green forest when I saw the most amazing sight ever. It was a great waterfall cascading into the clear sparkling water below. There were two freshwater dolphins leaping about at the base of the marvelous waterfall. In the the background, behind the waterfall, there were two looming mountains peaking out from behind the water.

It was a beautiful day in the dense forest. The birds were singing, the crickets chirping and lots of small animals scuttling around the forest floor. Thats when we saw it. It was long and straight, and it was half red half a dull white. It was covered in red-brown blotchy marks, confirming it was as old as my grandfather at least. The thing was lurking in the middle of a sunlit clearing.
