The Trials of Christ from His Arrest to His Death on the Cross

Introduction

Jesus was in Jerusalem because he was trying to fulfill the prophesy
that the Messiah would die and rise again in three days. Jesus entered
Jerusalem on a donkey. As they proceeded into Jerusalem many people
spread their cloaks on the road, while others spread palms they had
cut in the fields. Those who followed shouted,

"Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is
the coming kingdom of our father David. Hosanna in the highest.
Between Jesus' entry into Jerusalem and the first day of his trials he
did many things including his visit to the temple.

Jesus entered the temple and began driving out those people who were
buying and selling there. As he scolded them he said

"Is it not written that my house will be called o house of prayer for
all nations? But you have made it a den of robbers"

Also during those four days Jesus' authority was questioned and the
greatest commandment was told but most important Jesus ate his last
Passover meal.

O the first day of the festival of unleavened bread, the disciples
asked Jesus where they were going to eat the supper and Jesus told
them a room had been prepared for the last supper.

Jesus got a towel and washed his disciple’s feet but when he came to
Peter he would not let Jesus wash his feet Peter said "a master should
not wash his servant’s feet" but Jesus told him he was making an
example of what they must do so Jesus washed Peters feet. During the
meal, Jesus told the disciples that one of them was about to betray
him. He did not name Judas, but told John and Peter that it would be
the person who dipped his bread into the same lamb stew at the same
time as he did; Judas did this and then left the feast.

After supper Jesus took the bread and said "this is my body" after he
had blessed and broken it he took the cup again he gave it thanks and
praise gave it to his disciples and said "eat this bread and drink
this blood".

The word trial means tests. There are many different types of trials
Jesus went through these are

* Physical

* Faith

* Emotional (friendship)

* Legal; Jesus had three legal trials in front of the Sanhedrin
(Jewish law), Herod and Pontius Pilate roman governor (Roman law)

Garden of Gethsemane

Jesus went to the Garden of Gethsemane with Peter, James and John and
told them "Sit here while I pray" Jesus began to be deeply distressed
and troubled so he told them "Stay here and keep watch".

Going a little further he fell to the ground and prayed that if
possible the hour might pass from him. Jesus said "Abba Father,
everything is possible far you take this cup from me. Yet not what I
will, but what you will? He then returned to the disciples and found
them sleeping, he asks them...
