John 18

John 18, Jesus is in the when Judas shows up with the mob to arrest Jesus. Peter denies Jesus 3 times. Jesus is led through the kangaroo court and at no point is a valid acquisition brought against him. Pilate talks to Jesus and he can find no law that Jesus has broken and tries to return him to the Jews. However, the Jewish law did not have provision to put someone to death so they persuaded Pilate to execute him.

I have never really considered it, but all this happened at the Passover. A time when everyone should have been focused on thanking God for removing them from their slavery and providing for them during their wondering years, however, they were killing God’s son!

When Peter cut off the chief priest servant’s ear, Jesus said, “Am I not to drink the cup that the Father has given me?” Jesus knew what lay ahead for him. I wonder what is in my cup for me to drink.

Have a great day,
