Creative discussion - Barabbas or Jesus: 'Why doesn't Jesus defend himself?'

Jesus didn't defend himself - should we?

In the Bible book of Isaiah, the prophet writes about Jesus: "God's servant was abused, but he did not resist. He remained silent..." Does this mean for example that children have to keep their mouths shut when they are bullied? This is a good way to think about this question.

This idea is part of a complete Sunday School lesson on the Bible story of Jesus, Barabbas and Pontius Pilate ( Matthew 27: 1-2, 11-26 ).
