Definition of Trial

Trials is defined in the Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary as “examinations of evidence in a law court by a judge  and often a jury to decide if one accused of a crime is innocent.”

Jesus Christ underwent several trials in the course of His ministry when He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot. He was tried by the High Priest (Sanhedrin), Pontius Pilate, King Herod and back to Pontius Pilate.


Christ Before the High Priest

After the arrest of Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane by the people Judas Iscariot brought, He was taken into the court room of the High Priest Caiaphas where He was tried by the High Priest in company of the Elders and Scribes. Two persons were brought who presented false charges against Jesus claiming He said He would destroy the temple in three days and rebuild it again in three days, which was considered as blasphemy.
