What crime does the Sanhedrin accuse Jesus of committing?

Well, according to research, Jesus was accused of blasphemy by the Sanhedrin for identifying himself as the Son of God and Christ.

There were a number of reasons why the Jewish leaders wanted Jesus put to death:

He challenged their authority, calling them hypocrites.

He broke their laws about Sabbath observance. Jesus healed people on the Sabbath, but the Jewish leaders defined this as ‘work’ which was forbidden.

He mixed with people the Jewish leaders regarded as ‘unclean’ – sinners, prostitutes and tax collectors.

He made claims about himself that the Jewish leaders could not accept – that he was God’s son and the promised saviour.
