The Facts Demand a Retrial 3-18-18



the retrial of Jesus


The more I prepare my heart for Easter 2018 the more the facts demand a retrial!


  1. An innocent man falsely accused


“He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.” Isaiah 53:7


  1. A guilty man graciously excused


“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24


  1. A strong man shamefully abused


“There were many who were appalled at him—his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any man and his form marred beyond human likeness.” Isaiah 52:14

“He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.” Isaiah 53:3


What’s Your Verdict?


“What shall I do, then, with Jesus who is called Christ?” Matthew 27:22


  1. Liar?

  1. Legend?

Jesus said, “If you do not believe that I am the one I claim to be, you will indeed die in your sins.” John 8:24
