Jesus is questioned by Pilate

My column this week is from John 18, “Jesus Appears Before Pilate.” Verse 28 – Then the Jews led Jesus from Caiaphas to the palace of the Roman governor. By now it was early morning, and to avoid ceremonial uncleanness the Jews did not enter the palace; they wanted to be able to eat the Passover. The Jews led Jesus to the palace of the Roman governor. John says little about the Jewish phase of Jesus’ trial but much about the Roman trial (see Mark 14:53—15:15).

Peter’s second and third denials

My column this week is from John 18:19-27, where “The High Priest Questions Jesus” and “Peter’s Second and Third Denials.” Verse 19 – Meanwhile, the high priest questioned Jesus about His disciples and His teaching. These were not legal questions asked by the high priest since witnesses were supposed to be brought in first to establish guilt. The accused was not required to prove His innocence. Perhaps Annas regarded this as a preliminary inquiry, not a trial. Verses 20, 21 – “I have spoken openly to the world,” Jesus replied. “I always taught in synagogues or at the temple, where …
