Jesus Put On Trial

So much has happened since we left Jesus praying in the garden. Judas has led the guards to Jesus, and He’s arrested and then tried by the High Priest, the high council, Pilate, and finally Herod. These “trials” are the very definition of a sham trial, a miscarriage of justice.

Jesus was without sin. They beat Him, put a crown of thorns on His Head. Mocked Him, spit on Him and He did not defend himself.

Then they led Him to Calvary where they nailed Him to a cross.

The amazing thing is that Jesus did all of that willingly. Why? Because of love for you and me. He suffered all that humiliation because it was the only way for us to have our sins forgiven!

Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, Matthew 26:67

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
