The Announcement of Betrayal
As we have worked our way through the Gospel of John we have considered a lot of different moments in the life and ministry of Jesus. But as we come to this passage, this may be one of the most pivotal scenes that we have considered up to this point – Jesus announces His betrayal and releases Judas to do what he must.
As we consider this incredible scene it serves as more than a progression of the story, it also serves to teach us. Through this account we have a chance to see more fully the beauty of Christ and also the depth of our own depravity as we battle against sin and Satan.
