Rejected by Jews and gentiles

Jesus has been mistreated and rejected by the Jewish leadership, and endured three ‘trials in darkness’. He has been convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to die. Unfortunately, the Jewish leaders lack the authority to execute; that power belongs only to Roman authorities, and “blasphemy” is not a capital offense to Rome.

At first light, they will take Jesus to Pilate, change the charge from blasphemy to treason — a capital offense under Roman law — and request execution.  Jesus will soon begin the next three trials … the ‘Gentile trials’: before Pilate … then Herod … then back to Pilate.
