Jesus was brought in front of the high priest who convicted him of blasphemy. In the next morning, he was produced in front of the Roman Governor Pontius Pilate. Learning that Jesus is from Galilee, Pilate referred him to the ruler of Galilee, King Herod. Both the leaders did not found Jesus guilty, but upon the intimidation from the priests and fearing a nation wide riot, they awarded death sentence to him.
