“Our study of the closing scenes of the life of our Lord begins at the point where He fell into the hands of the representatives of justice; and this took place at the gate of Gethsemane and at the midnight hour.” (James Stalker, The trial and death of Jesus Christ : A devotional history of Our Lord’s passion, 1)
The representatives of human justice crucified the Son of God after starting the process of carrying out a mock trial that begun at the midnight hour. Wow.
