In this lesson, Dr. Bramson discusses the interrogation of Jesus. First, what happened in Israel that caused the Jewish leadership to be unable to execute Jesus themselves? Next, the Jewish leadership was made up of mostly Sadducees. What did Sadducees believe? Why weren’t they looking for a Messiah? What motivated them? Finally, Dr. Bramson takes a closer look at the two men who interrogated Jesus—Pilate, the Roman procurator, and Herod Archelaus, the governor of Galilee and Peraea. Who were these men? What motivated them? What motivates us when we are faced with hard choices?
