Matthew 27


A tour of Matthew 27 with Ken Boa.

The combined gospel accounts reveal that Jesus endured six trials. The first three were religious (before Annas, Caiaphas, and the Sanhedrin), and the last three were civil (before Pilate, Herod, and again before Pilate). When Judas realized the outcome of the deliberations, he threw the blood money into the temple and later hanged himself. Jesus was brought before Pilate, and after his encounter with Jesus, the governor was unsuccessful in his attempt to release Him. After handing Him over, Jesus was scourged, mocked, spat upon, and beaten by the Roman soldiers and then led to the place of crucifixion outside the city walls. After the pain and humiliation of the crucifixion, Jesus yielded up His spirit, and was buried in Joseph of Arimathea’s tomb.



Lord, it is impossible for me to grasp the fullness of this mystery, that the eternal Son of God would endure such rejection, humiliation, sorrow, and agony to reconcile sinful people to You. I thank You for the new covenant with You that was purchased through His blood.
