Matthew 27:1

What was that night like for Jesus? Did he sleep at all? The thing I keep wondering is what kept him going. I know that he was tempted to give up and get out of there, but I wonder if he thought of me. Maybe not me specifically, but if it was love for me that drove him there or love for his father. I guess the two are so closely intertwined it's probably hard to differentiate.
I love the farce that is Jesus religious tribunal as these guys decide that Jesus should die. As far as I know, when someone broke the law, the religious leaders didn't decide if someone should be punished, they simply carried out the punishment. So it shouldn't have been a decision of whether or not Jesus should die, but whether or not Jesus must die. I'm surprised Jesus didn't just laugh at how sophomoric the whole trial was. JM
