      I wonder if Barabbas, though still riddled with sin, didn’t start going to church. Now, I know its speculation. But its not as far fetched as you might think. Richard Bauckham, in his marvelous book Jesus and the Eyewitnesses, writes, Many characters in . Barabbas was also a murderer and a rebel: "And there was one named Barabbas, who was chained with his fellow rebels; they had committed murder in the rebellion" (Mark ). And we learn more about Barabbas in Matthew 15 Now at the feast the governor was accustomed to releasing to the multitude one prisoner whom they wished.

    Barabbas (/ b ə ˈ r æ b ə s /; Aramaic: ישוע בר אבא ‎ Yeshua Bar ʾAbbaʾ, literally "son of the father" or "son of the teacher") is a figure mentioned in the New Testament, in which he is an insurrectionary held by the Roman governor at the same time as Jesus, and whom Pontius Pilate freed at the Passover feast in Jerusalem, while keeping Jesus as a prisoner. The book is chilling, challenging and a very unusual take on the Christian theme. I struggled along to way to make sense of it, constantly thinking this will take some change of direction, something will HAPPEN, and in some sense nothing happens other than the full logic of the opposite of Jesus and Barabbas plays itself out to the end.
