Easter Week Day 6

Well, there is sooooo much in these Bible passages today. In fact this moment in Jesus’ life is more detailed than any other section written about Him in all of scripture. We get a full picture of what happened on the day Jesus was betrayed, by not only Judas but the very race of people He had chosen to take care of the Temple and look for His coming.

Can you see – the kiss that was expected?

Can you see – Jesus in chains?

Can you see – a rigged courtroom controlled by religious leaders?

Can you see – the High Priest ripping his robe for something he didn’t understand?

Can you see – Jesus being dragged to the court of Pilate?

Can you see – Jesus being beaten in the court yard?

Can you see – His flesh and blood laying on the ground?

Can you see – the crowd asking for the freedom of a known murderer?

Can you hear – the spike being nailed into His feet?

Can you see – the blood dripping down?

Can you hear – the forgiveness of a man who “so loved the world”?
