Luke 23:2  "...perverting the nation, and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar, saying that He Himself is Christ, a King" Two lies and the truth.  And they had to add something to the truth.  To say that Jesus was the Christ would not have meant anything to Pilate, just a religious figure.  So they had …

Bible Study Notes on Luke 22:54-71 – 20180903

Luke 22:54  "...the high priest’s house..." Not where He should have gone.  Shows it was nothing more than a political sham.  From Luke's account, not sure which high priest he's referring to.  We know from others that He was taken first to Annas then to Caiaphas.  Annas had been high priest and was the father-in-law …
