Psalm 22:16 reads: “For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.”

Isaiah 53, a Messianic prophecy, states in verse 7: “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.”

Christ spoke to Pilate, but he would not answer Herod a word. The connection of the metaphor of dogs to Canaanites, which is also evident in Matthew chapter 15, and the connection of Herod "the Great" to the dragon of Revelation 12, which is also the serpent and satan, are facts of history, and should alone make it without doubt that it was the children of the serpent, and not the children of God, who were ultimately responsible for the murder of God. So Yahshua tells Pilate that “he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin”, Himself indicating that the Edomites of the Herodians were indeed responsible for His death.
