The Trial of Jesus is a work of American lawyer Walter M. Chandler in which he examines the Jewish trial of Jesus from a purely legal perspective. In the first volume Chandler establishes the New Testament as an authentic source of information for his examination of the trial. He provides a legal argument for the credibility of the gospel writers and examines the legal legitimacy of using their witness in understanding the events that occurred. He examines in detail, Hebrew criminal law and constructs a legal brief. The second volume deals with the Roman trial.
