Jesus’ Trials (3)

Next, Jesus was led to the house of Caiaphas, the high priest. Remember that it is still nighttime. So this trial is also illegal according to Jewish law.
Our Bible Reading tells us about the witnesses who testified against Jesus. “Many people came and told lies against Jesus, but they said different things. None of them agreed” (verse 56).
Then Caiaphas asked Jesus (verse 61b), “Are you the Messiah, the Son of the blessed God?” What was Jesus’ answer? “Yes, I am the Son of God” (verse 62a). When Jesus said that, Caiaphas became very angry. Then “everyone agreed that Jesus was guilty and must be killed. Some of the people there spit at him. They covered his eyes and hit him with their fists” (verse 64b-65a).
The Jewish leaders felt that their laws and traditions were more important than accepting the truth. I hope you are following the truth that Jesus is God’s Son, the Savior of the world!
