Visorstuff, not sure if I got this one quite right either. Happy re-editing.

It seems ironic also that his wife tells Pilate she "suffered many things" because of Christ when Christ atoned for our sins to alleviate suffering.

--Matthew Faulconer 07:36, 28 Mar 2005 (CEST)

I think this is very interesting quote. How can anyone suffer because of Christ? Even Peter and Paul were happy to "suffer" in the name of Christ (although this is more persecution, not the emotional suffering as Pilate's wife had). Why? His atonement alieviates suffering. We suffer a minimal amount of what we really could because of the atonement. -Visorstuff 00:35, 30 Mar 2005 (CEST)
