Jesus on Trial

Week Four: Jesus on Trial
Lord, what a faithful God and friend You are to me. I thank You as I come to You now.

John 18: 28-32 

 28 Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. 29 So Pilate came out to them and asked, "What charges are you bringing against this man?"

 30 "If he were not a criminal," they replied, "we would not have handed him over to you."

 31 Pilate said, "Take him yourselves and judge him by your own law."

   "But we have no right to execute anyone," the Jews objected. 32 This happened so that the words Jesus had spoken indicating the kind of death he was going to die would be fulfilled.


What do people “charge” Jesus with today? How would you answer them?

Think of a specific "charge" or charges people you know bring against Jesus. How can you be better prepared to answer them?
Pray today for any unbelievers in your circle of family or friends, that they may know Jesus, too.

We encourage you to spread the word and share this page with your family and friends.
