People Inspired By Jesus’ Teachings

Extracts from this document...


People Inspired By Jesus' Teachings There are many examples of people who have found inspiration in the teachings of Jesus.

    The trial had to be held in the daytime. This didn't happen, because Jesus was seized in the middle of the night, and (Mark 15:1) says "Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, reached a decision."
