Matthew 27:1-26

Matthew 27:1-26

A Texas man, Cornelius Dupree Jr., was imprisoned 30 years ago on aggravated robbery charges had his conviction overturned on January 2011 after DNA evidence exonerated him.

As a Canadian example, David Milgaard was charged with the 1969 murder of Saskatoon nursing aide Gail Miller and in January 1970 was sentenced to life in prison. In 1991, the Supreme Court of Canada was directed to review the conviction. The Supreme Court of Canada set the conviction aside in 1992, and Milgaard was subsequently cleared by DNA evidence five years later. He spent a total of 27 years behind bars.

Many of us have been accused of things that we have not done. For most of the times this happens it is due to a lack of information on the part of the accuser. A very few of us have been accused of wrongdoing where the there was no evidence to prove you innocent. The portion of scripture we are looking at today tells us about the last trial of Jesus prior to His humiliation and crucifixion.
