Conclusion

One of the things that allows us to have a personal relationship with Jesus is that we know that he faced the same types of temptations and the same types of situations that we do. And he did so without ever giving in to sin. We read in Hebrews 4:15–16

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

In the arrest and trial of Jesus we have seen that Jesus was subjected to many injustices by an oppressive regime. This provides hope for those today who are the victims of oppression and injustice. We know that Jesus has been there and understands.
