Dean Elliott teaches from Matthew 26-27. In these two chapters of Matthew, we look at the selection of the lamb for the sacrifice, which must be perfect and innocent. We see Jesus stand trial in a religious court and a political court, and the pronouncement of innocence, even by his enemies. We also see the determined face of God to offer His Son as a sacrifice. We see that Jesus is willing to submit to the will of the Father. We see the utter contempt of men, through the lives of three men.
