Jesus on Trial

We continue to see the testimony of the suffering of our Lord. Our text is Matthew 26:57-68. In this passage, we see Jesus on trial before the Sanhedrin. We need to consider Jesus as both our savior and our example in his sufferings for us. Why was he hated by the Jewish leaders? How shall we be encouraged to follow him and to “bear the reproach he endured” (Hebrews 13: 13)? We will consider these four points:
1. The purpose and desire of the Sanhedrin.
2. The “faith” and faithful testimony of our Lord.
3. The irony of the gospel.
4. The encouragement for our faith.
