When you hear the words of the Lord Jesus Christ to Pilate, “…unless it had been given you from above”, do not think that Pilate is innocent of transgression. The Lord said, “…the one who delivered Me to you has the greater sin”; this shows that Pilate sinned.
+ Saint John Chrysostom

When He did not answer, He was silent like a lamb; and when He answered, He taught us as a Shepherd. Therefore, may we learn the lesson as the Apostle also says, “…there is no authority except from God” (Rom 13:1).
+ St Augustine

Personal Question
Do you often worry about what people in charge think of us or treat us when we say we are Christian? Should this change your actions, and make you keep your beliefs hidden?
