Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
The Sanhedrin was a legitimate judicial authority but they intentionally disregarded their ethical obligations when they ramrodded a guilty verdict in less than three hours. While the Sanhedrin had the authority to sentence Jesus to death, they did not have the autonomy carry it out. As a result, Jesus was turned over to Pontius Pilate for execution.
The Sanhedrin ironically did not want to enter the Roman palace because they considered it unclean, but they had no qualms about perverting justice to convict an innocent man. Pilate felt there was no case against Jesus, but politics is a dirty game and he gave in to the demands of the ungodly Jews that called for Jesus' crucifixion.
The Sanhedrin gave the illusion of a fair legal process when they convicted Jesus, there was more injustice from Pontius Pilate and the Romans summarily flogged and executed the Lamb of God. It was nothing less than political murder.
