    1. For surely to every good and peaceable man it must in nature needs be a hatefull thing to be the displeaser, and molester of thousands; much better would it like him doubtlesse to be the messenger of gladnes and contentment, which is his chief intended busines, to all mankind, but that they resist and oppose their own true happinesse.

      This reminds me of Jesus Christ.

    1. YetPilate's wife finds her present moral strength through her original defeat,for had she been successful in preventing the Crucifixion she would haveblocked humanity's redemption.

      This reminds me of the verse Ecclesiastes 3:1-15, which states how God sets the time for everything that happens in the world. I assume Pilate's wife would also relate to that sentiment because she didn't block humanity's redemption.

    1. Loe where she comes along with portly pace Lyke Phoebe from her chamber of the East, Arysing forth to run her mighty race, Clad all in white, that seemes a virgin best. So well it her beseemes that ye would weene Some angell she had beene.

      I am getting the idea that Phoebe represents much more than a girl but a goddess. The color white is heavily associated with her sexual nature because it tells the reader that she is pure and innocent. I also believe that Phoebe is fighting against societal pressures in life because it is very common for dignified women to remain humble in uncomfortable situations.
