Jesus on Trialby James Montgomery Boice, Philip Graham Ryken
Jesus' trial was undoubtedly the greatest miscarriage of justice in the history of the world. Yet the rulers and leaders followed the letter of the law. So how did an innocent man end up dying like a common criminal? Beginning with the diabolical conspiracy to kill him, James Boice and Philip Ryken focus on seven aspects of the legal proceedings surrounding Jesus' arrest, trials, and crucifixion. Through Boice and Ryken's clear definition of the issues and incisive reminders of how the Jewish and Roman laws compare to our own laws, you will learn what you need to know to sit in the jury box and make a ruling. As a juror, you will grapple with who Christ was, what he did, and why he died. As a human, you will be astonished by these events and humbled by the reminder that Jesus did it all for you.
