The Trial of Jesus and Peter’s Denial (Matt. 26: 47-68, 69 – 75)


Jesus Christ faced an unjust trial because the religious leaders had already decided to find him guilty of an offence and kill him by crucifixion.

Two groups tried Jesus, a small group that met at night, and the full group of Sanhedrin who met at daybreak.

The trial of Jesus began at the home of Caiaphas, the high priest to Pilate – the Roman Governor, and to Herod who was in Jerusalem. The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin found people to tell lies and give false evidence against Jesus Christ so that they could find Him guilty and put Him to death.

Although, they found many false witnesses they could not find any false evidence. Finally, two false witnesses came forward and declared Jesus had said, “I am able to destroy the temple of God and rebuild it in three days” – Matthew 26 verse 61 (NIV).
