The Trial of Jesus

Posted by Elaine March 18, 2015 at 12:00 AM AEDT

It makes no sense! Where was justice? This man Jesus, who when He was just a boy astounded the religious leaders with knowledge no-one had ever taught Him about their ancient Holy Scriptures, who healed the sick, turned water into wine, who brought dead people back to life, freed others dominated by evil spirits, restoring them to sanity…. The crucifixion of Jesus was a fact of history, so why was He crucified?

Today people would protest at this injustice, but that wasn’t what happened in Jesus’ day.

This beautiful artwork Depicted by Madrazo, 1803, shows Jesus about to be struck in front of the High Priest Annas, as recorded in John 18:22 – When he said this, one of the policemen standing there slapped Jesus across the face, saying, “How dare you speak to the Chief Priest like that!”

Finally, some men stood up to testify against him with this lie:
We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this Temple made with human hands, and in three days I will build another, made without human hands. But even then they didn’t get their stories straight!

Then the high priest stood up before the others and asked Jesus, “Well, aren’t you going to answer these charges? What do you have to say for yourself?”

Jesus made no reply. Then the high priest asked him, “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the blessed God?” Jesus said, “I am, and you will see me, the Son of Man, sitting at God’s right hand in the place of power and coming back on the clouds of heaven.” Mark 14:61-62
