Trial of Jesus

http://www.law.umkc.edu/faculty/projects/ftrials/jesus/jesus.html

Rating: 1, Awesome!

Description: Providing an account of the trial of Jesus presents many challenges. First, there is the challenge of determining what actually happened nearly 2,000 years ago before the Sanhedrin and the Roman prefect of Judea, Pontius Pilate. Almost our entire understanding of events comes from five divergent accounts, each of which was written by a Christian (who did not know Jesus directly) for a distinct audience from thirty-five to seventy years after the trial. Second, there is the challenge that comes from knowing that readers of this account are likely to have prior understandings of trial events that come from their own religious training--and that any account of the trial provided here that varies substantially from these prior understandings may not be easily accepted. Nonetheless, the trial of Jesus merits analysis for the simple reason that no other trial in human history has so significantly affected the course of human events. Standards 6.7.6 and 7.1.1

Comments: This is part of the Famous Trials page by Doug Linder of the School of Law, University of Missouri-Kansas City.
