1. Do you think the rulers go out personally and grab him?
2. Do you think when they actually have him "they could not take him
because the hour of his arrest had not yet come?"
Ok. with some phantasy one can think of a scenario where this is
possible, but I thought it is maybe something else, "sentencing him in
abstensia" or something.

Best wishes
