Jon Gary Williams tabulated the accusations against Christ in the gospels. He allowed us to put his list online. You can read it here:
The list serves to highlight how our Lord was falsely accused.
He was despised and avoided by others;
a man who suffered, who knew sickness well.
Like someone from whom people hid their faces,
he was despised, and we didn’t think about him.
Isa 53.3 CEB
But he still pressed on with his mission. Quite a lesson for his people!
In the judgment and crucifixion of Christ, Luke gives three witnesses to his innocence. The innocent suffering for the guilty. Obviously, there had to be some trumped-up charges for him to die. He suffered an “unjust ruling” (Isa 53.8 CEB).
