Last week we saw that Jesus was arrested in the typical Roman fashion. Rome is going to be used by God in the end story of Jesus’ life in a significant way. The Roman and Jewish “puppets” fulfill prophecy to perfection; as only God could plan it. Jesus will be railroaded through six trials – of sorts. All of them will be fallacious farces (though farce may be the wrong word since there is no humor involved) that will only work to fulfill the desires of the Jewish leaders.
