Chapter 6

"He wants to be there, then?" He asked.

"I guess he does. Why does this man pose such a threat? He seems harmless enough to me," I curiously inquired.

"I am certain I do not know. I can only assume the leaders of Rome are afraid of the same thing the leaders of the Hebrews were afraid of," He offered.

"What would that be?" I asked.

"Well, it seems the Sanhedrin was afraid of Jesus because he didn't do things the way they taught the Hebrews they should be done. They felt they were the final authority of the law," He said.

"How do you mean? What law? Is there another law besides Roman law?" I asked.

"Certainly there is. The Hebrews have something they call the Torah. In it are the writings of the prophets of old, and the words God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai," He explained.

"And Jesus disobeyed these laws?" I asked.

"No, he did something far worse; at least according to the Sanhedrin. He fulfilled them," He said.

"What's that mean?" I asked.

"It means that Jesus is the Messiah. All that he said, and all that happened to him was foretold by the writings in the Torah," He said.

"Everything? I mean, from what I hear he suffered a grueling death. I heard some of the stories about the beating he received. I don't see how the man survived that, let alone carry his cross to Golgotha to be crucified," I said.
