The Trial

April 7, 2017 Preacher: Jeramie Rinne Series: The Road to the Cross

Topic: Topical Scripture: Mark 14:53– 15:15

Synopsis: People hate unjust authority figures. We are disgusted by corrupt politicians, biased judges, and cowardly rulers. The greatest, most disturbing miscarriage of justice ever was the legal proceedings against Jesus. After his arrest, Jesus stood trial before two courts: 1) the Sanhedrin, which was the supreme ruling council of the Jews, and then 2) Pilate, the Gentile ruler in charge of Jerusalem. Both trials were the height of irony. The true and righteous king was condemned to death by corrupt and cowardly leaders. And yet it was in this most profound miscarriage of justice that Jesus was securing our ultimate acquittal.
