The trial before Jesus’ death represents a jarring picture of our darkest desires. Instead of God trying us, humanity stands to judge God in the incarnate Christ. It reveals our inner anger toward God, our dissatisfaction with our lives and our thirst for vengeance. But the stunning news is that Jesus allows himself to be judged and takes our shame upon himself. He is the true liberator who has come to carry our shame and release us from our guilt.
