Trials are supposed to be that which determine truth. A court that has a pre-determined outcome is called a “kangaroo court.” Jesus had just experienced this kind of court in John 18:12-27. The Jews then sent Jesus to the civil authorities represented by Pontius Pilate. In this trial, three facts emerged that are relevant to our lives today.
1. God’s plan will be accomplished, vv. 28-32.
2. God’s kingdom will be established, vv. 33-36.
3. God’s truth will be manifested, vv. 37-38.
