We profess as Roman Catholics that Jesus was arrested by Roman authorities in Jerusalem’s Garden of Gethsemane. He was tried and sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect for the province of Judea.

In the final chapter of Hebrews, followers of Jesus are instructed to continue to do good works and share resources with those who are in need.
