In this sermon, we looked at how Jesus' arrest unfolded in John 18:1-11 and how this affects our lives today. After Jesus' prayer in the upper room, He and the disciples go out to the garden just outside of town. Judas comes to the garden, leading the religious leaders and Roman soldiers. When the leaders ask which one is Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus steps forward and identifies Himself, saying, “I am.” At His words, the soldiers and religious leaders fall to the ground in fear. Knowing what was to come, Jesus’ deity continues to be displayed as He willingly lays His life down by His own authority. This is further emphasized when Peter tries to take the situation into his own hands and Jesus asks him rhetorically, “Shall I not drink the cup that the Father has given me?” The cup Jesus refers to is laying down His life and taking it back up again for our salvation and eternity with Him.
