What trials did Jesus face before His crucifixion? — reblogged

cross2Tomorrow is Good Friday. Now is about the time Jesus would have been seized, tried repeatedly, mocked again and again, beaten, scourged and crowned with thorns, and sentenced to die.

Who should have been mocked? Who should have been punished? Who should have been left to die? It was not Jesus.

In his post altruistico thoughtfully considers the miscarriage of justice. For comparison, I have provided other links.




If you want to understand what Jesus came to save us from, consider His trial. Then look around the world, even our nation. Where is justice to be found among men?

The night of Jesus’ arrest, He was brought before Annas, Caiaphas, and an assembly of religious leaders called the Sanhedrin (John 18:19-24; Matthew 26:57). After this He was taken before Pilate, the Roman Governor (John 18:23), sent off to Herod (Luke 23:7), and returned to Pilate (Luke 23:11-12), who finally sentenced Him to death.

There were six parts to Jesus’ trial: three stages in a religious court and three stages before a Roman court. Jesus was tried before Annas, the former high priest; Caiaphas, the current high priest; and the Sanhedrin. He was charged in these “ecclesiastical” trials with blasphemy, claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah. (continued here)

    1. Thank you and God bless you.

      It is about Easter. On Easter we all have cause to be blessed. On Easter we remember how our Lord blesses whoever believes in Him.

      John 3:14-17 New King James Version (NKJV)

      14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
