Just who were the people who tried Jesus? Annas’ personal fortune from ‘skimming’ the income from sacrificial animals was over 2.5 billion pieces of silver. His son-in-law, Joseph Caiaphas, broke twelve laws in bringing Jesus before him. Herod Antipas, second son of Herod the Great, was a Roman educated playboy in charge of a small section of a third class imperial province——a man whose rash promise led to the beheading of John the Baptist. And Pontius Pilate? Pilate was an anti-Semitic politician more intent on cash-flow for building projects than justice. John Gilmore's The Trials of Christ takes a thorough look at this questionable group gathered to ensure Jesus got a fair trial.

Resource Experts
Dr. Gilmore is not content simply to detail the legal maneuverings. He seeks to pierce through the layers of litigious wrappings to find the core motivations of those who ‘tried’ Christ. It warms this lawyer’s heart that with Gilmore’s careful exposition, Christ’s trials, bad ones at that, prove a rich source of exhortation.

—Meirwyn I. Walters, Assistant Professor of Law, Gordon College, Massachusetts
