The Trials of Jesus Christ

If there were a perfect opportunity to supply convincing evidence for a historical Jesus it should be in the trials of Jesus. The first century was actually a well documented time period in this area. If the story is true, then, it should not be difficult to prove, at least, a historical Jesus who had these trials as detailed in the Gospel story.

There are 6 or 7 parts to the trials of Jesus - events reported by all the Canonical Gospels of the Bible. Mark 14:53–65, Matthew 26:57–68, Luke 22:63–71 and John 18:12-24.
"Question: "What trials did Jesus face before His crucifixion?"

Answer: The night of Jesus’ arrest, He was brought before Annas, Caiaphas, and an assembly of religious leaders called the Sanhedrin (John 18:19-24; Matthew 26:57). After this He was taken before Pilate, the Roman Governor (John 18:23), sent off to Herod (Luke 23:7), and returned to Pilate (Luke 23:11-12), who finally sentenced Him to death.

There were six parts to Jesus’ trial: three stages in a religious court and three stages before a Roman court. Jesus was tried before Annas, the former high priest; Caiaphas, the current high priest; and the Sanhedrin. He was charged in these “ecclesiastical” trials with blasphemy, claiming to be the Son of God, the Messiah...."

Guess what...

"...the events of the passion have been disputed over the centuries by Jewish scholars who have argued that the representation of the Jews and the Romans in the gospels is inaccurate and unhistorical, particularly as concerns Jesus's trial and the involvement of Jewish authorities."

-- WWJ page 241

"Scholars in the area of biblical criticism take these inconsistencies with Jewish practice to indicate that such a trial most likely did not take place."

They fail to make a convincing case that the trials of Jesus ever really happened.

Yeah, Dr. Robert Price has often said that the whole idea of the Jewish council meeting in the middle of the night during passover is really out of the question.

The Jesus Mythicist Creed:
The "Jesus Christ" of the New Testament is a fictional composite of characters, real and mythical. A composite of multiple "people" is no one.
