Now open your Bible, if you will, to Luke chapter 23. We are coming now to the final message on the trials of our Lord. The passage immediately after this one moves us to the cross. But when we finish this morning with the final verdict rendered by Pilate and the Jewish people on Jesus, we're not going to pick up the story of the crucifixion until August. That is so important, it is so critical, we want our entire church family to be a part of that, so I'm going to be ministering in all kinds of places the next few weeks. I'll be here two weeks from today, miss next Sunday, be back the following Sunday, but we'll have a different subject all together. And then I'm going to be gone a number of weeks until about the middle of August through July and into the middle of August. And we're going to wait, the timing is really perfect for us so when we come back then, we'll pick up the account of our Lord's crucifixion, that's the way we'll begin our fall time together. In the meantime there'll be many wonderful services and wonderful preachers occupying this pulpit, while I occupy the time to preach in a few places. Throw in a high school camp there with our high school young people as well, and do some reading and recharging of my batteries for what the Lord has for us in the fall. So this will be our last look at the gospel of Luke for a while and we're at chapter 23 verses 13 to 25, the final phase of our Lord's trial.
For those of you who haven't been with us the last few weeks, we apologize. We have gone through this now for a number of weeks because there are six phases in the trial of Jesus. The first phase is before the Jewish leaders. The second phase, large phase, is before the Gentile leaders. And in each of those phases there are three components. And so there are actually six separate tribunals in which Jesus is accused and in which judgment is rendered on Him. We are at the final one which then leads to His crucifixion....
