Jesus left Upper Room and walked to Mount of Olives and Garden of Gethsemane (1), where He was arrested and taken first to Annas, and then to Caiaphas (2). After first trial before political Sanhedrin at Caiaphas’ residence, Jesus was tried again before religious Sanhedrin, probably at Temple (3). Next, He was taken to Pontius Pilate (4), who sent Him to Herod Antipas (5). Herod returned Jesus to Pilate (6), and Pilate finally handed over Jesus for scourging at Fortress of Antonia and for crucifixion at Golgotha (7).
