Isaiah 42:2-3 ” He will not shout or cry out, or raise His voice in the streets. A bruised reed He will not break, and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out.”

It says in Matthew 26:62-63,  ” Then the High Priest stood up and said to Jesus, ‘Are you not going to answer?  What is this testimony that these men are bringing against You?’  But Jesus remained silent.”   In this hastily assembled kangaroo court, the  priests, scribes and elders gloated in the fact that they finally had Jesus where they wanted Him.  They had lined up false witnesses to testify against Jesus…but He wasn’t taking the bait.  The High Priest believed that he was in total control of the situation…but he had no idea that he was simply a pawn being used by God within the annals of eternal redemptive history.  Jesus had no reason to answer the High Priest… no need to justify or defend Himself.  For the plan of salvation, created before the dawn of time, was playing out perfectly.
