Before we wash our hands of all the drama of Season 12, join us for our villainous season finale in which we unpack Pontius Pilate. We all know him as the sealer of Jesus’ fate, but is there more going on than what we can see depicted in an Easter season church play? Join us as we explore that classic tension of choosing less drama over justice while also being responsible for fulfilling a prophecy of eternal significance. This final villain just may turn out to be the most relatable character yet.
