LENT 2015: Scandal (Week 3)
March 11: The Arrest (sorry...no Podcast available)
Under the cover of night?! Led by one of the 12?! A large crowd comes after Jesus?! In a private place?! Even Jesus called them out for the secrecy and the darkness of that scandalous arrest! I’d connect this to what we do as Christians when no one is looking. What thoughts go on in the privacy of our minds, what websites do we click when the door is closed, what happens at home that wouldn’t dare happen at church? Then I’d connect this to Jesus’ willingness to be arrested. Although he knocked the soldiers on their backsides with his words, he “hid” his divine power and allowed it all to happen…for the sake of grace.
