Trials are compelling, and sensational trials hold our attention for days and weeks at a time. Yet we often miss the suspense and spectacle of the most spellbinding legal drama of all: the trials of Christ before the Jews and Romans. 

In Jesus on Trial, two gifted pastor-theologians provide crucial background information on the law in Jesus’s time. You'll learn how it compares to our own legal system as Boice and Ryken walk you through each stage of the judicial process Jesus endured. As you hear the evidence and weigh the testimony against him, you too will find yourself drawn into the role of a juror. What did it really mean for Jesus to claim that he was “Christ, the Son of the Blessed One"? 

As you are riveted by the jury's findings, you’ll gain a new perspective on how and why Christ died for you.
