- Did they paint Pilate with more kindness than he actually possessed?

- The pain of being mocked and tormented before and during death must have been agonising.

- (I should read N.T. Wright's commentary on Matthew.)

- Feeling like the mission had failed, like everything he stood for and wanted was being mocked. Feeling abandoned even by God.

- Not sure what to make of the accounts about the raising of the dead/tearing of the Temple curtain.

- The account that the tomb was sealed is good evidence in favour of the resurrection. (At the time, I'm aware it may be more difficult to verify now.)
