Bible Text: |

Eric Clapton "Unplugged" is the greatest-selling 'live' album in history.  One of the first songs on that album is a 1950's guitar tune entitled "Before You Accuse Me".  It features the famous lyric, "Before you accuse me, take a look at yourself..."  In Matthew 27, the gospel writer records the ironic accusations that were leveled at Jesus on the Friday afternoon He was crucified.  The great irony is that while Jesus was completely innocent, it was the religious leaders who were guilty!  As we examine this famous text, what three ironic accusations did the religious elites speak against Jesus?  What was the real truth they didn't understand?  ~Good Friday 2018
