Why was He silent?

Why was He silent? 

Now the passage of Scripture which he was reading was this: "He was led as a sheep to slaughter; and as a Lamb before its shearer is silent, so he does not open his mouth. (Acts 8:32 NIV)

On Good Friday, I often wonder why He was for the most part silent at his various “trials.” 

Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?” And Jesus said, “I am, and you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming with the clouds of heaven.” Mark 61-62 (ESV) “

He was silent because He was Guilty as Charged. He was charged with Blasphemy and claiming to be the Son of God. He did not need to offer any defense. He did not need to justify, argue, defend or explain Himself. 

Sunday is coming…
