Pontius Pilate washed his hands to declare his innocence - we are going to wash our hands to declare our thankfulness to God
Pontius Pilate makes a show of washing his hands. He is really saying that he is innocent of Jesus' death. Actually, he was just too scared to do the right thing.
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 ).
