When Jesus stood before the Roman authorities to face the accusations of the religious establishment, He remained silent. Even in this refusal to defend Himself, Jesus fulfilled God’s eternal plan of redemption. Alistair Begg shows us that Jesus chose to suffer in our place in order to make a sacrifice for the sins of many.
1And as soon as it was morning, the chief priests held a consultation with the elders and scribes and the whole council. And they bound Jesus and led him away and delivered him over to Pilate. 2And Pilate asked him, “Are you the King of the Jews?” And he answered him, “You have said so.” 3And the chief priests accused him of many things. 4And Pilate again asked him, “Have you no answer to make? See how many charges they bring against you.” 5But Jesus made no further answer, so that Pilate was amazed.
