Jesus' trial was undoubtedly the greatest miscarriage of justice in the history of the world. Yet the rulers and leaders followed the letter of the law. So how did an innocent man end up dying like a common criminal? Beginning with the diabolical conspiracy to kill him, James Boice and Philip Ryken focus on seven aspects of the legal proceedings surrounding Jesus' arrest, trials, and crucifixion. Through Boice and Ryken's clear definition of the issues and incisive reminders of how the Jewish and Roman laws compare to our own laws, you will learn what you need to know to sit in the jury box and make a ruling. As a juror, you will grapple with who Christ was, what he did, and why he died. As a human, you will be astonished by these events and humbled by the reminder that Jesus did it all for you.

There aren't too many books out there that focus on the trial of Jesus Christ. This is a fascinating and devotional look at the 24 hour whirlwind kangaroo court that sentenced Jesus to die.
Boice and Ryken explain some of the miscarriages of justice, like the unlawful cross-examination of Christ by the High Priest, and the wickedness of Pilate in sentencing Christ to death even though he admitted He was an innocent man.
They also compare the legal system to ours, and bring out the truth that Jesus allowed this to happen. He was innocent yes, but not a victim. He was in control, and went to His arrest, trial and execution willingly, because He knew, if He had saved Himself, He could not save others.
The books makes you make a decision about who Christ is and what He came to do. It was a beautiful look at the most important day in human history; the day when history was spit in two.
