    Archaeologists might have uncovered the site of the trial of Jesus. While excavating the floors underneath an abandoned building next to the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem, archaeologists came across the foundation walls and sewage system that lay beneath Herod the Greatís Jerusalem palace. According to scholars, this is most likely the place ...

    Tower of David. Credit: Ricardo Tulio Gandelman via Flickr (CC by 2.0). Washington D.C., Jan 5, 2015 / 02:32 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Archeologists believe they may have discovered the place where Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate took place in Jerusalem. In an effort to expand The Tower of David Museum, archeologists began excavating an adjacent, abandoned prison building, the Washington Post reports. As they stripped away layers of the prison floor, they realized they were likely uncovering a missing link in the puzzle of the Holy Land’s history. Although the discovery began over a decade ago, the site is just...

    The exact spot upon which Jesus stood as he was sentenced to death, may have been pinpointed by archaeologists in Jerusalem. Discovered around 15 years ago, the remains of Herod the Greatís palace have been carefully examined and a place between a gate and uneven stone pavement has been identified as fitting the description of the event in the Gospel of John. Pilgrims and tourists will be able to visit the Biblical site, because tours are being offered by the Tower of David Museum, which is located nearby.

    JERUSALEM ó It started 15 years ago with plans to expand the Tower of David Museum. But the story took a strange turn when archaeologists started peeling away layers under the floor in an old abandoned building adjacent to the museum in Jerusalemís Old City. They knew it had been used as a prison when the Ottoman Turks and then the British ruled these parts. But, as they carefully dug down, they eventually uncovered something extraordinary: the suspected remains of the palace where one of the more famous scenes of the New Testament may have taken place ó the trial...

The Jewish settlers who started the dig with the help of Israel's Antiquities Authority say they want to turn it into an archaeological park to celebrate its historical significance.

    As a rule I abhor the modern English language practice of using nouns as verbs. However, given that it is Holy Week and given that it is the perfect allusion, allow me to paraphrase Daniel Henninger: Big Guy just ďPontius PilatedĒ the Ukraine. It is an accurate, if awkward, construction. "The White House reiterated that no lethal assistance was planned" to help Ukraine defend itself. The U.S., however, did send ready-to-eat meals. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney's comments were antiseptic: "The Ukrainian government has a responsibility to provide law and order." It is fitting that churchgoers the world over...

    Archdiocese of Washington ^ | 4/16/2014 | Msgr. Charles Pope
    In the Matthean Passion account, we come to the trial before Pilate. Pontius Pilate is a study in evasion and vacillation. Despite being a man of great political and worldly power, Pilate is indecisive, inwardly troubled, and quite incapable of doing what he knows is right. Despite the outward power he had, inwardly he was weak and morally compromised. And in his weakness, he does something very awful: he violates his own conscience and sentences an innocent man to death.Letís look at his story in five stages.I. Attempted Avoidance - At a professional level, Pilate thought the whole matter brought...

    Ecce Homo by Antonio Ciseri The reading of the Passion according to Saint Matthew yesterday featured one of the most mysterious verses in the whole New Testament.It was this: While Pilate was sitting on the judge‚Äôs seat, his wife sent him this message: ‚ÄėDon‚Äôt have anything to do with that innocent man, for I have suffered a great deal today in a dream because of him.‚Äô (Matthew 27:19).

    PONTIUS PILATEHis name provides two valuable clues to his background and ancestry. The family name, Pontius was that of a prominent clan among the Samnites, hill cousins of the Latin Romans. They had almost conquered Rome in several fierce wars. The Pontii were of noble blood, but when Rome finally absorbed the Samnites, their aristocracy was demoted to the Roman equestrian or middle-class order, rather than the senatorial order. It is Pilate‚Äôs personal name Pilatus that proves almost conclusively that he was of Samnite origin. Pilatus means ‚Äúarmed-with-a-javelin‚ÄĚ. The pilum or javelin was six feet long, half wooden and...

    As revealed last autumn, Warners are planning to add to the recent spate of proposed Biblical epics with its own yarn based around Roman prefect Pontius Pilate. Deadline now reveals that Brad Pitt is circling the lead role. Reports that it's because he wants to wash his hands of World War Z remain unverified. The familiar version of Pilate is more or less the one played - rather well - by Hristo Shopov in Mel Gibson's The Passion Of The Christ, and by David Bowie in Scorsese's The Last Temptation Of Christ - although perhaps you prefer Telly Savalas in...

    When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, ĎI am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.íĒ (Matthew 27:24)On August 9, the Federal Open Market Committee and its chairman, Ben Bernanke, released its bi-monthly statement. To promote economic growth and ensure that the velocity of inflation was kept at bay, the committee once again concluded that exceptionally low interest rates were warranted. The target range for the federal funds rate would remain in the 0%-.25% range. No...

Whenever a police officer or soldier is killed, the loss is even more profound, for they are the ones who stand between our way of life and total anarchy.

Lawyer Jim Hensley described Abdulhakim Muhammad as an impressionable youth driven to public service in an impoverished Middle Eastern country. But teachings by "hardened" terrorists in Yemen and experiences with Afghan child refugees who were missing limbs drove him to become someone his parents didn't recognize, Hensley said.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - It seemed like Jeb Bush was in a no-win situation by taking up the cause of trying to keep Terri Schiavo alive. He was going against polls that showed two out of three people thought government shouldn't get involved. Then when courts stopped him from stepping in, some of his conservative Christian base criticized him for not doing more. But many people agree the Schiavo case was not a political issue for Bush and that the governor will not be hurt by it - especially since he doesn't have plans to run for office again any time...

Bush wouldn't, couldn't, shouldn't because he is just obeying orders. The Governor of Florida follows orders from a Pinellas County Circuit judge. In matters of life and death. In issues of cruel and unusual punishment. When due process is denied. The Constitution of Florida says The People are sovereign ó like kings.

    Gov. Bush Washes Hands of Schiavo Matter by Scott Ott (2005-03-27) -- In a symbolic move, designed to show Terri Schiavo's supporters that he has done all he can do to spare her life, Gov. Jeb Bush today publicly used a disposable moist towlette to "wash his hands of the matter." "I find nothing deserving death in this woman, but I'm only the supreme executive of Florida," the governor told a crowded news conference. "Perhaps if our constitution called for a balance of powers to protect our citizens against judicial abuse, I could do something. But as it stands, she...

    Keyes: 'Jeb Bush has the authority' to save TerriDecries judicial arrogance in appearance on Hannity Show On Wednesday, Mar. 23, Alan Keyes told Sean Hannity that Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is authorized by the Florida and national constitutions to intervene and spare brain-damaged Terri Schiavo from starvation. "The governor at any point has the right to intervene," said Keyes. "And if he fails to act, he is failing to do his duty." Unfortunately, Keyes noted, the courts have argued for years that "they are, in a sense, the makers of the law, and above the law, and that once they...

Jeb Bush to use his executive powers to save Terri Schaivo's life. Klayman, a candidate last year for the U.S. Senate from Florida, believes that since Bush "is the supreme executive power of the state of Florida, he has the right and duty to step in and, in effect, pardon Terri Schaivo...

    Five Briefs Say Gov. Bush Has the Legal Authority to Save Terri Schiavo To: National Desk Contact: Gary McCullough Media Advisory, March 24 /Christian Wire Service/ Posted on the internet are five legal briefs that explain to Govenor Jeb Bush that he has the legal authority to save Terri Schiavo.

    "Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said the new information "raises serious concerns and warrants immediate action. But Florida statute 2004-Ch0415-Section%201051#0415.1051"415.1051 seems to contradict Felos' claim. The statute states, "If it appears that the vulnerable adult ... is likely to incur a risk of death or serious physical injury if such person is not immediately removed from the premises, then the representative of the department shall transport or arrange for the transportation of the vulnerable adult to an appropriate medical or protective services facility in order to provide emergency protective services."

    Dear Governor Bush, It appears that you and only you can save Terri Schiavo from premeditated judicial murder. Terri is dying a painful and inhumane death at this very moment. We, your voting base, implore you to immediately exercise your perfectly legal executive authority, take custody of Terri Schiavo, and have her feeding tube re-inserted. There are now new and very credible allegations, accompanied by compelling evidence, which indicate that Michael Schiavo, Terriís former husband who is common-law married to another woman and has children by her, may have been systematically abusing Terri since she became incapacitated. You are perfectly...

    Clicking on the Source link will take you to the PDF file hosted on MichaelSavage.Com which is the Thomas More Law center's Response to Jeb Bush's request for their legal opinion on the Schiavo case, dated 10/15/2003. Read it for yourself and be appalled at Gov Bush's inaction for over 2 years. He knew over 2 years ago that DCFS had the power to take custody of Terri. He knew that there was a strong posibility that abuse and neglect was taking place over 2 years ago. From page two, typed by me: "In the final analysis, the fact of...

    WASHINGTON, March 24 - Gov. Jeb Bush's last-minute intervention in the case of Terri Schiavo, even after the president had ended his own effort to keep her alive, may have so far failed in a legal sense, but it has cemented the religious and social conservative credentials of a man whose political pedigree is huge and whose political future remains a subject of intense speculation. On one level, the Florida governor's emergence as the most prominent politician still fighting, despite a string of court and legislative defeats, to have a feeding tube reinserted in Ms. Schiavo was very much in...
