The Roman Trial Begins

April 30, 2023

Book: John

Scripture: John 18:28-32

Then they led Jesus from the house of Caiaphas to the governor’s headquarters.
It was early morning. They themselves did not enter the governor’s headquarters, so
that they would not be defiled,but could eat the Passover. So Pilate went outside to
them and said, “What accusation do you bring against this man?” They answered
him, “If this man were not doing evil, we would not have delivered him over to
you.” Pilate said to them, “Take him yourselves and judge him by your own
law.” The Jews said to him, “It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death.” This was to fulfill the word that Jesus had spoken to show by what kind of death he was going to die.
John 18:28-32
