Jesus' trials focused on his true identity, although those who tried him didn't really want to know the truth.
James Nored and Phil Ware share in word and video the meaning of Jesus' trials before Pilate, Herod, and the Jewish Ruling Council and how they helped define the way of Jesus through the cross to the empty tomb.
Jesus had many opportunities to walk away from the shame and pain of the cross, but he chose the Father's will and our need over his comfort.
James Nored and Phil Ware remind us of the dark night that began the long, painful, and lonely journey of Jesus through his Passion to bring us to God and helped define the way of Jesus through the cross to the empty tomb.
Despite early Jewish opposition and later Roman persecution and martyrdom, their passion, conviction, and impact could not be stopped.
Phil Ware continues his series called 'I Doubt It' and focuses today on Jesus' call and promise that his eleven apostles and those that followed them would turn the world upside down with their message of good news and hope and grace.
