Jesus, The Lord Over His Own Betrayal
In chapter 13-17 we have listened as Jesus prepared His disciples for what was to come. Now, as we come to chapter 18, the things that He had foretold begin to take place.
In chapter 18 we see the betrayal, arrest and trials of Jesus and from an outside perspective it may seem like things are out of control. The once charismatic leader has been silenced.
But what John makes clear is that through it all, Jesus never ceases to be in complete control. Even when Jesus is being led away in chains, He is the one directing ever move (John 10:17-18).
