Jesus on Trial – Arrest

Last week we talked about how the execution of Christ all began with a conspiracy. The “chief priests” (religious leaders) and the “elders of the people” (political leaders) conspired together to kill Jesus.

This conspiracy led to the ARREST of Jesus. Before you can have a trial and sentencing you must first have the incarceration.

Jesus was conscious of all the events that He was about to face.

He knew He would be UNLAWFULLY arrested. He knew He would be UNFAIRLY tried. He knew He would be UNJUSTLY convicted and He knew He would be UNMERCIFULLY executed.

Jesus laid down His life so that those who believe in Him will live.
