Jesus at the Sanhedrin

Jesus is brought before the Jewish court known as the Sanhedrin. It is the highest court of justice for Jews, a gathering or an assembly of high ranking holy men. They question Jesus about His claim of being the Son of God, the long-awaited Messiah with the sole intention to destroy Him.

The story is told from a different perspective, that of a Father and son who are both appointed scribes in the temple. The father is training his son in the craft and takes him on this special assignment being conducted in the night on the eve of the Passover.

This can be a very graphic and dramatic play depicting the brutal trial that Jesus had to endure prior to His crucifixion.
