Best Answer

1. Jewish laws provide for what is known as a preliminary examination before a magistrate first and not by a priest (John 18:13-23).

2. The trial was held at the High Priest's Palace. No trial was ever held at the residence of the high priest. All meetings of the Sanhedrin were held in the hall adjoining the temple. A trial at any other place would have been illegal.

3. Blasphemy is not a Capital offense that warrants a death penalty.

4. Jewish court do not question prisoner. Mt 26:62-64

5. The Jewish law prohibited the opening of a trial at night. Mt 26:55-57.

7. No Capital Offense trials were allowed one day before Passover.

8. No defender was assigned to Jesus. "If none of the judges defend the culprit, i.e., all pronounce him guilty, having no defender in the court, the verdict of guilty was invalid and the sentence of death could not be executed" (Maimonides)."

9. Had Jesus been tried and convicted, he would be stoned, not crucified.

10. Jewish trial of capital offenses requires at least 2 days. One day for the prosecutor and another day for the defense.

Were the apostles John and Paul in attendance at the trial of Jesus?

According to Acts of the Apostles, Paul spent his childhood in Jerusalem, learning under the famous Gamaliel I, so, on that evidence, he could have been at the trial of Jesus. However, scholars say that there is no evidence in any of the epistles that he was in Jerusalem during the lifetime of Jesus, in which case he could not have been present at the trial. Certainly, Paul never mentions having seen Jesus before his crucifixion. The gospels do not mention John as in attendance at the trial of Jesus. .

Rather than having problems with Jewish leaders, Pilate relented and ordered that Jesus be crucified.
