					          The Trial of Jesus – Trial Procedure


4. Pilot’s problem
   -- the local authorities try to convince him how dangerous
   the defendant is
   -- Pilot’s solution:
       put him with another prisoner, and let the crowd decide
       which to save (a Holiday gift from the Romans)
       (metaphor: let the jury decide?)
   -- the verdict goes against Jesus.
                                              Question:
                                          Was the defendant
                                               guilty?

                       Mala in Prohibita   Mala in Se
           Law:        (wrong because      (it is inherently
                       it is prohibited)   wrong)
