Discussion for John 18

  • Jacob
    Jesus mighty was certain that was why they fell down when he asks them who they seek, His mighty was certain that was why He put back one of them when Simon Peter struck him by sword, His mighty was certain that was He uses Pilate's words without fear of him as a judge. In that drama the ultimate goal was that the purpose of Him being on the earth must come to pass, that is the will of God. Amen
  • LeVonne
    John 18 represents so much chaos and strife encircling Jesus and the disciples. Betrayal, aggression, acts of violence and denial of who He is by his chosen disciples. All of this takes place in the dark. Yet, Jesus is the only one who remains fixed and focused. Hallelujah! What a Savior! The "Light" of the world.

    For as many that are under the bondage and captivity of the enemy, get yourself loose today by the word of God in John 18: 7-8. This is because before Jesus surredered his life to the arresters, he signed a contract with them, the contract is found in verse 8 which says 'If ye seek me, therefore let these go their way ' Beloved, receive the divine mandate today and be set free from that long age bondage. But, you must surrender your life to christ first. God bless you.
  • Uruakpa Anthonia
    Jesus purposely laid down himself to be arrested because at that point they could not recognise Jesus. It was Jesus who asked them 'Whom seek ye? ' Even when Jesus said 'I am He ', they all fell to the ground. This simply shows that they don 't have the power to arrest Jesus but because Jesus knows his purpose on earth and it was time to fulfill that purpose, he simply laid down himself to be arrested.

    36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence. 37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice......Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.....The Lord of lords and the King of kings.....God Bless...
  • The same servants and officers who had gone to the garden to abduct Jesus...?
